One of her fans claimed Colleen had several photos of themselves on her socials.

So I was snooping around trying to find some info on my favorite actor Denzel, and I stumbled upon his daughters Katia’s facebook page. So I look at more of her pics and this who has her profile pic as her and Katia. Click on her page and she has some more photos of them together. Her name is Colleen. … If this is actually true congrats to Katia! I don’t think I’m ‘outing’ her (if true) since these are public.

The next fan believed most of her dad’s followers knew about her being a lesbian.

Most people took a wild guess about his daughter when Denzel was accepting his life time achievement award at the golden globes.
