It turns out the rumors are true. Taraji P Henson recently confirmed the validity of the claims of her relationship with the NFL player, Kelvin Hayden, whom she first started dating almost two years ago.
In an interview with Essence Magazine, Henson said she is thrilled, and it appears as though everything in life is finally coming together. On the 14th of December, the 47-year-old said she’s delighted with her personal life.
As you may know, it’s been rumored for a little while now that Taraji has been dating Kelvin, who played for the Chicago Bears back in 2014, for nearly two years. Hayden also played for the Atlanta Falcons.
Taraji P Henson said the speculation was “all over The Shade Room,” on Instagram. In case you don’t know, The Shade Room is an Instagram account which shows all of the latest gossips, especially in the African-American community.
And while it may be bothersome to some Hollywood stars to hear rumors that may or may not be true continually, Henson claimed she remains unperturbed by such drama.
During the same chat with reporters, Henson revealed she doesn’t get worked up over the hype surrounding gossip and speculation, for a couple of reasons.
Mainly, the actress states there is a lot of “fake love” out there for people when they’re in the spotlight. However, Taraji said once the limelight is gone, the love disappears as well.
The Empire actress added she never buys into that “fake love,” as she called it because she’s got enough real compassion in her life. Fake love or genuine love, We’re glad Henson is enjoying her life as of late, and wish her the best in the future.
