Taraji P. Henson is no longer engaged. The 50-year-old actress confirmed that she is no longer engaged to 37-year-old Kelvin Hayden. Taraji confirmed this while speaking on The Breakfast Club.

“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,” she 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.”

Taraji said they both realized that they were not responsible for each other’s happiness and needed to “first make ourselves happy to make each other happy.”

“All of my relationships started looking the same,” she added. “Two broken people trying to pick up the pieces.”

Rumors started circulating about a possible split when Taraji posted pictures on Instagram no longer wearing her ring. Kelvin, a former NFL player, did not attend Taraji’s 50th birthday party.

Taraji and Kelvin announced their engagement back in May 2018 and were set to get married in June. However, they revealed in April that they planned to postpone their wedding due to COVID-19. 

I am sorry to hear about the split of this couple, however everything happens for a reason. Wishing Taraji the best in her next phase of life.
