Taraji P. Henson's Ex Reveals Why He Didn't Marry Her

This could've been a serious power couple.

Published November 3, 2016

Taraji P. Henson has dated her fair share of A-listers over the years, and apparently that list includes actor Hill Harper

According to Harper, he and the Empire star were a couple for nearly two years back in the day (shortly after she starred in Baby Boy), and they were in love. Sooo... what happened there? In a new interview with Unsung Hollywood, Harper comes clean.

“Taraji Henson and I were in a relationship for about a year and a half, two years. Wonderful relationship,” he said. “Just because you’re in a healthy, great relationship that ends doesn’t mean it wasn’t successful or it was a failure. Not all relationships are meant to end in marriage.”

Turns out, there's a reason none of the actor's relationships ended in marriage. “Absolutely I’ve had a fear of commitment,” Harper admits. “No question. Would it be born out of the fact that my parents are divorced? Probably.”

Sounds like neither of them found love elsewhere — yet.
