Taraji P. Henson Confirms Split From Fiancé Kelvin Hayden
Taraji P. Henson and Fiancé Kelvin Hayden have ended their engagement, she confirmed the news during an interview on The Breakfast Club.
Taraji Henson revealed their breakup when answering a question from Charlamagne tha God about how women handle the drama from men in their relationships.
“I’m dedicated to the black man, y’all. I just turned 50 and I mean, I hadn’t said it yet, but it didn’t work out,” Henson said. “I tried. I was, like, therapy. Let’s do the therapy thing, but if you’re both not on the same page with that then you feel like, you’re taking it on yourself, and that’s not a fair position for anybody to play in a relationship.”
The couple was originally supposed to tie the knot this spring but postponed their wedding due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Henson also revealed they did attempt to make the relationship work before calling it quits. As a huge proponent of mental health in the Black community, Henson revealing that they did try therapy together wasn’t a surprise, but she went on to allude to the fact that ultimately it came down to happiness for them.
