Taraji P. Henson confirms split with fiancé Kelvin Hayden after being engaged for nearly two years.
The actress confirmed during an interview on Monday with The Breakfast Club, saying she and the former NFL player have ended their engagement.
She told the hosts, “I just turned 50, and I mean, I hadn’t said it yet, but it didn’t work out. 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.”
They were initially scheduled to get married in June of this year, but the wedding was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Henson was part of a panel discussion on The Breakfast Club discussing trauma and relationships. She went on to say she is a big advocate for mental health in the black community.
She told the panel, “It hurts when relationships don’t last. I love to see Black love, and I want to see more of it. I want to see our relationships last and make it.”
