LOS ANGELES, Nov. 11 (UPI) -- Muhammad Ali's daughter, Laila, Friday quashed rumors she is involved in a lesbian relationship with singer/actress Queen Latifah.

"Yes, I am in the process of getting a divorce, but I am not dating, nor will I ever be dating a woman, because I am not gay," Ali said in a statement released Friday. "It is unfortunate that my divorce has started rumors in the media that are untrue."

Ali, 27, and Johnny "Yahya" McClain are in the process of ending their five year marriage, Zap2it.com reported.

Ali, a female boxing champ, is training for a December bout in Berlin and getting ready to star in a volleyball movie, the Web site said.

Her legendary father recently allayed rumors he was on his deathbed from Parkinson's disease when he accepted a Medal of Freedom in person from President Bush, Zap2it.com noted.
