Taraji P. Henson has always been hesitant to go public with a man she’s involved with. In fact, back in March of this year she spoke candidly to Steve Harvey about why men in her life ‘don’t get claimed’ without putting a ring on that finger.
“Im a grown woman. If there’s nothing on this ring finger, if this ring finger is naked no one gets claimed. You don’t get claimed. You don’t get claimed until you claim me. Period! You don’t get to say, ‘I dated Taraji P. Henson.’ You don’t get to go on a red carpet and share that part of my life. Because now today with all of this social media it’s not private. And then I have a son. I don’t want them to be like, ‘Your mom dates this one and this one and this and this.’ I can’t do that. I can’t afford that because when I finally meet the one, he’s going to be like, ‘Wait a minute, you a hoe! You been with this one, this one.’ (And I’m like) ‘No I wasn’t’ and he’s going to be like, ‘Lemme go look it up. Here it is! You kissing him at this restaurant…and I can’t do that.
Fast forward to today and new photos of Taraji and NFL Player Kelvin Hayden all cozied up on the beach have hit the Internet. It’s the first time the world has seen ‘Cookie’ out with a man and already there’s drama.
According to reports, Kelvin is dating at LEAST one other woman besides Taraji. A close friend of one of Kelvin’s girlfriends spilled all their personal tea.
So here I am, scrolling down my feed right before I commit to getting my beauty sleep and what do I see? I see my favorite actress Taraji P. Henson photo’d holding hands with Kelvin Hayden; a man who I know is definitely involved with my close friend!
So, what do I do? I call up my friend to tell her the TEA and although she was hurt, she wanted nothing to do with this due to her career. But I’m not letting Kelvin slide or else he will continue to hurt more women!
Kelvin and my friend have a rocky but happy relationship but they are still very much together and have been for a year now. She’s already met his family and they just had a convo about her moving to where he’s at in Chicago! She’s a good hard working career woman and doesn’t deserve to dogged out!
In fact, Kevin & Taraji were together two weeks ago when they went to exercise with his friends.
I have proof that Kelvin was with my friend JUST a week before that. I have pictures of them on vacation, hanging out, and eating dinner with his grandmother up until Dec. 6th when he started disappearing and lying about dating Taraji.
And there are receipts!
If that’s not enough, ANOTHER friend of ANOTHER woman claims her bestie is ALSO dating Kelvin.
My friend has been in a relationship with Kelvin FOR 8 years and she lives in Chi-town. Oh and WE have receipts. They went to Costa Rica not too long ago, before that they went to Europe! She just posted a pic of him 3 weeks ago on IG! We even have video proof!
And more receipts…
We don’t know if Kelvin and Taraji are serious, but this is the exact type of foolishness Taraji’s worked so hard to avoid. We wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t see them out and about again.
