Hold up! Did Regina King’s ex-boyfriend Malcolm-Jamal Warner break up with her on Valentine’s Day back in 2013? It sure sounds like it!
The Boondocks actress hinted just that while chatting with Us Weekly at the Elle Women in TV Celebration sponsored by Olay and Hearts on Fire Diamonds on Tuesday, Jan. 13, in West Hollywood, Calif.
When asked what her favorite Valentine’s gift has been so far, the actress told Us: “That’s tough because I don’t have one — someone broke up with me on Valentine’s. D—k! Yeah. I’m serious. Then he actually sent me flowers that said, ‘I still love you’ and I threw the flowers in the trash and he was upset that I threw them in the trash and I was like, ‘F—k you.’”
Although King, 43, wouldn’t name the ex with bad timing by name, she hinted people can assume it’s Warner, 44. “They’ll know,” she said, before adding, “I love flowers but he thought that was right. What an ass, right?”
In case you’re not up to speed on King’s past love life, Us exclusively revealed two years ago that the two former child stars — who lived together — suddenly called it quits on their two year relationship in March 2013. At the time, a source told Us King was totally blindsided and heartbroken after the Cosby Show alum called things off because he “wasn’t feeling it anymore.”
King was previously married to Ian Alexander Sr. from 1997 to 2007. Together they share 18-year-old son Ian Alexander Jr.
