It was all lies to throw the media off and to keep Taraji P. Henson and Kelvin Hayden‘s relationship on the low for the past two years.
On Thursday, the “Empire” actress shared her reasons to Essence’s “Yes, Girl!” podcast why she said they spilt and denied dating Kelvin.
“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am.”
The 47-year-old actress confirmed her relationship status, saying:
“I’m happy in my personal life. Finally, it happened to me!”
Rumors of the couple dating first started being whispered around December 2015, but then Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, holding hands in Miami popped up.
It was revealed in February 2016, but Henson denied the rumors and then released a fake story that they split in November 2016. The Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.
Taraji and Kelvin were spotted celebrating the holidays this year with a new addition to the family. Henson shared a snap of her new pup, K-Ball, earlier this week.
Taraji had this to say about her new pup K-Ball:
“Christmas came early!!! Thank you #ZaddyBear I ??u so much!!! y’all Meet #K-Ball!!! Thank you @pitfallkennels_lilbrotha @therealbigboi he is going to get soooooooooo much love!!! ???”
K-Ball is adorable!
