Is Taraji P. Henson still an engaged woman? That's what fans are starting to wonder.
The "Empire" star got engaged to former NFL player Kelvin Hayden in 2018, three years after the duo started dating. In early 2020, they appeared to be the epitome of happiness and were months away from getting hitched. However, he has not been seen on Taraji's Instagram in months.
Adding fuel to the breakup rumors, Taraji celebrated her 50th birthday last week in Mexico, and Kelvin didn't appear to attend the festivities. He also failed to mention her big day on his social media.
"Bliss," Taraji captioned a photo from her birthday celebrations. Noticeably, she does not appear to be wearing her engagement ring, instead donning other statement rings.
Taraji hasn't appeared on Kelvin's Instagram since Valentine's Day. Kelvin, meanwhile, last appeared on her Instagram in March. The last time she flashed her engagement ring was in April.
To be fair, the duo has been somewhat private about their romance — they quietly dated for two years before going public with their relationship. In 2019, Taraji revealed that they actually split at one point, and Kelvin had to claw his way back into her life.
Coincidentally, Taraji and Kelvin should be married by now. The two were set to tie the knot this summer, but the coronavirus pandemic forced them to postpone their nuptials.
"Our grandparents, my grandmother is about to turn 96, his is 86, how do we get them to the wedding now? Now, we are concerned, just trying to figure out the safest and best way," she told "Access Hollywood" in March.
