Henson's Last Post with Hayden

Henson's last public post of the two was on March 8th, featuring a picture of the two kissing one another.

Henson Speaks on The Split

Taraji P. Henson took to Instagram to post a segment of her interview with Charlamagne tha God from Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club where she speaks on 'Trauma's Impact on Intimate Relationships.'

In this clip, Henson discusses her relationship with couple therapy and explains why her relationship with Hayden didn't work out. She explains that there is no such thing as the perfect relationship and discusses her plans to try couple therapy with Hayden. These plans were one-sided, as Hayden wasn't as eager to participate as Henson was, ultimately leading to the two's split, due to being on different pages.

Hayden has not made an announcement on the split as of now.

We wish the best for these two during this difficult time and hope for nothing but happiness for each individual.
