Amid much speculation, Taraji P. Henson has confirmed that she and Kelvin Hayden have gone their separate ways and ended their engagement.
While appearing on "The Breakfast Club" on Oct. 19, the "Empire" star spoke about the split from her now-former fiancé.
"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."
At the end of the day, Taraji and Kelvin, a former Indianapolis Colts player, 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."
Fans began wondering about the status of Tarji and Kelvin's relationship last month when she celebrated her 50th birthday in Mexico without him. In Instagram images, she didn't appear to be wearing her engagement ring either.
Adding to the suspicion, Kelvin had not been seen on Taraji's Instagram in months.
Coincidentally, the duo should, in theory, be married by now. Taraji and Kelvin, who announced their engagement in May 2018, were set to tie the knot this summer, but the coronavirus pandemic forced them to postpone their nuptials.
