Regina King was born on January 15, 1971 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Regina is a famous African American actress that is most known for her role in the sitcom 227 in her younger days and also as the voice of two young brothers in the popular and controversial cartoon, The Boondocks.
She is a very popular actress and has achieved a lot of success in her career. Regina’s most recent roles have been on popular shows like HBO’s The Leftovers, 24, and Southland. She also had an appearance on the classic Tom Cruise movie about a sports agent, Jerry Maguire.
Some of her most hardcore fans most remember her as the sister of Ice Cube in the cult comedy classic, Friday. In the movie, Ice Cube just got fired from his job and gets a visit from his best friend Smokey who is determined to hang out with Ice Cube and smoke weed with him all day to celebrate his unemployment. Throughout the movie, Regina and Ice Cube have a combative sibling rivalry. She even tries to annoy Ice Cube’s friend Smokey, going as far as setting him up on a blind date with an obese and bald woman.
Regina dated Ian Alexander for several years and both of them were very much in love. She did not want to get married as she was at the peak of her career at that time. However, he wanted to settle and start a marital life with her even though she felt it wasn’t the right time. She finally gave in when they decided to marry in 1997.
It was a grand wedding and many people were invited to their marriage reception. She looked stunning in her wedding dress and Alexander was also looking very handsome in his wedding suit. She also carried on with her career after her marriage. There was a very good understanding between them on how they were going to maintain and balance their work with their married life.
They had a son together and named him Ian Alexander Jr. As time passed, she got busy with her career and he had to manage the home and take care of their son alone. He got frustrated with his lifestyle and this lead to an argument between them. This huge problem in their relationship led to their split. She got separated from Ian Alexander in the 2007, ten years after getting married.
Relationship with Malcolm Jamal Warner
Regina started dating another actor, Malcolm Jamal Warner in 2011. Malcom was very famous for portrayal of the eldest son the The Cosby Show. They dated each other for two years until Malcom decided to end the relationship. He claimed that he was not feeling the spark with her anymore and he asked her and her son to move out of his house. Her career came to a halt because of the shocking news. Not only did he break up with her, he broke up with her on Valentine’s Day. There was a lot of talk about the breakup in the media, which affected her career.
King initially denied this news of the breakup to the media. She said that she and Warner were doing well and life was going in the right direction. According to her, their separation was a mutual one and there was absolutely no kind of serious problem or conflict going on between them.
This was the first serious relationship she had after getting divorced from her ex husband, Ian. She loved Malcolm very seriously and never wanted to part with him. When asked about the reason for the break, Warner said that he wanted to protect his privacy but still was willing to share the details. He said he wanted a relationship but felt that she was very childish and it did not seem like she was fit to be in a serious relationship.
There were rumors that the couple was set to be engaged before the split. King once said that she and Warner had a lot in common and she said that it was a growing relationship but everything turned out to be different in the end. She thought that the relationship would last for a long time. After ending a marriage of 10 years, Warner was her only source of happiness. She was heartbroken and depressed for a long time after Malcom dumped her. She could not even pay attention to her son, which resulted in the deterioration of his health.
The moment they split, rumors started spreading about possible cheating which really frustrated Malcolm. He said that they were genuinely in love with each other and were very loyal. The split was not due to external factors, it was because he did not see a future with her.
Emmy Award Winner
On September 17, 2018 Regina won an Emmy Award that she did not expect to win. After all the heartbreak she had gone through in her life, she was finally destined for some good fortune. The audience was very excited for her shocking win. She was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her excellent role in the Netflix produced show, Seven Seconds.
Regina could not hold in her happiness as she took the stage to accept her trophy, “Wow, I didn’t have nothing to say because I wasn’t really expecting this, but I am so grateful Television Academy. Y’all are my friends, my peers. Thank you, thank you, thank you,” King said in her acceptance speech. “This is amazing. I wanna curse right now. This is good.”
After a long career, Regina had won three Emmys which a huge accomplishment for an African American female actress. In Hollywood, there aren’t that many opportunities for black females to succeed. Regina is one of the few black women that Hollywood trusts to be the lead of a TV show. She has earned that respect after years of hard work and iconic roles in various TV shows and films.
