How do you preserve your love relationship these days while excelling in your career? Easy! Keep your love and private life private — just ask the Empire star Taraji P. Henson. She says she found the real deal! And I think we all want to know her secret.
For the past two-years, the fashionable diva kept her personal life personal, so well that she had us speculating and wondering if the rumors were true about her and her love-bug Kelvin Hayden. The rumors have been going strong since the two were photographed holding hands in Miami in 2015.
Well Miss Henson finally confirmed her romance with the former NFL cornerback.
“I’m not the type to blast my personal business,” Taraji said on Essence, Yes Girl Podcast. “But you know, I think it’s important for people to know that I am happy. I am very very happy. I just am.”
It’s something about the award-winning, triple threat actress, singer and author that makes you excited for her. Did anyone know miss Henson was an author? Not to mention, she played the heck out her role as “Cookie,” which has earned her two Emmy nominations. Her net worth is $16 million in 2017, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Work it, Kitty Boo Boo!
It is obvious that she put her career first before she found love.
“I’m happy in my personal life,” she said in the Podcasts. “It’s finally happened to me.!”
They always say, ladies, focus on success and your knight and shining armor will come to you.
And Kelvin has his own success to add to the story. He won a super bowl with the Indianapolis Colts and played with the Chicago Bears and the Atlanta Falcons.
However, despite her confirmation, we all had a clue. “It was all over Shade Room anyway,” she said about the social media news site. But Taraji seems to have her head on straight when it comes to choosing a man from a professional stand-point.
“I don’t really put a lot on what I do because, you know, people love you when you’re in the limelight. But what happens when the lights go off?” she said. “So, those people care about me no matter what, and those are the people I keep close to me. So, I never buy into the hype. They love you when you hot, and they love you when you not, you know? So, I never buy into that fake love. I got so much real love around me that I’m not confused.”
She seems to know how to choose her man, congrats to the couple!
