Talented actress Taraji P. Henson has ended her engagement with fiance Kelvin Hayden.
The 50-year-old actress shared the news with her fans on Monday, October 19 during The Breakfast Club show.
Taraji who is commonly known for her role Cookie Lyon in the series Empire said that she tried to make it with her 37-year-old lover but to no avail.
“I am dedicated to the black man, you all. I just turned 50 and I mean, I had not said it yet, but it did not work out. I tried. I was, like, therapy. Let’s do the therapy thing, but if you are both not on the same page with that then you feel like, you are taking it on yourself, and that is not a fair position for anybody to play in a relationship," she said.

According to Taraji, she and Hayden realised they were not responsible for each other's happiness but to first work on themselves.
According to Page Six, the couple sparked breakup rumours in September when the NFL player failed to attend his lover's 50th birthday.
The duo announced their engagement in May 2018 and they were set to say I do in June 2020.
In April, Taraji and Hayden announced that they planned to postpone their wedding due to the coronavirus pandemic.
