Splitsville! Here's Why Taraji's NFL Player Boo Allegedly Dumped Her

The Empire star is single again.

Taraji P. Henson will be sitting at the singles table this Thanksgiving.
According to sources, the Empire star got dumped by Kelvin Hayden, her NFL player boo, less than a year after the first started dating. What's more, Hayden has already moved on to a blonde Becky from Chicago — cold!

“[Kelvin] is dating a very pretty blonde from Chicago,” the source tells Media TakeOut. “They both live there, and Taraji lives in L.A." As for why they split, the source says, "[Kelvin] is a very successful businessman and he doesn’t need any of Taraji’s drama."
A quick scan of Taraji's social media feeds proves that she's fairly unbothered by the split.
