When Hollywood actress Taraji P. Henson‘s fiance stopped showing up in her social media posts recently, rumors naturally began that the couple had called off their engagement. Taraji confirmed those suspicions on “The Breakfast Club.”
Taraji + Kelvin Hayden Split Up
The former “Empire” star had been engaged to former NFL player Kelvin Hayden since 2018. They had planned a June 2020 wedding, but that was canceled due to COVID-19. Now it turns out, Henson and Hayden have officially broken up.
Taraji Is Co-Hosting A Talk Show
One of the entertainment world’s leaders in addressing mental health, Taraji’s next big project is co-hosting a talk show on Facebook Watch on the topic. The working title will be “Peace of Mind with Taraji,” and she’ll be working alongside longtime friend Tracie Jade Jenkins.
“I’ve long been a mental health advocate for the Black community and created the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation in 2018 that has provided resources to thousands of people who are struggling. I’m looking forward to bringing this new talk series to Facebook Watch, where I can continue to create conversation around an issue that is near and dear to my heart.” (Variety)
