Taraji P. Henson confirmed rumors that she and her fiancé Kelvin Hayden have gone their separate ways.

The Empire star broke the news during an appearance on The Breakfast Club on Monday, Oct. 19.

The 50-year-old Virgo explained that she and the former NFL player tried to fix their problems with therapy sessions, but she said they were "not on the same page".

"It didn't work out," Taraji said. "I tried. I said, 'Let's do the therapy thing', but if you're both not on the same page with that, then you feel like you're taking it on yourself and that's not a fair position for anybody to play in a relationship."

She added, "My happiness is not his responsibility and his is not mine. We have to first learn how to make ourselves happy, to make each other happy. So when one person is taking on the weight of the entire relationship, it's never going to work... You have to still stand up for yourself and be there for yourself, but it's hard to do if the other person isn't doing that either."

Taraji said she learned in therapy that men are not emotional creatures. They shut down when women nag them.

"I just found out, in our therapy sessions, that men have fewer words than women. I didn't know that. They run out of words. Because women are emotional, we want to talk through everything," she told Playboy magazine.

"Of course we have more words; we're the communicators," said Taraji. "Kelvin, he thinks he's a comedian. Anytime we're in a disagreement or I'm like, 'We need to talk about this', he'll look at me and say, 'Baby, I done ran out of words'."

But Taraji hasn't given up on love: "I'm dedicated to the black man, y'all."

The actress and Kelvin, 37, became engaged in 2018, but they grew apart during the forced coronavirus lockdowns that have laid waste to many Hollywood marriages.

Taraji confessed she was considering holding her wedding in her garden after the coronavirus pandemic threw her plans into chaos.

The actress' nuptials were initially set for April 4, but she and Kelvin were forced to pushed the date back to June due to bad weather - and then they canceled again due to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns.

"It's a mess. It's a mess, so it might be in the backyard," she told Entertainment Tonight. "It's probably going to be a backyard wedding. It would break my mother's heart, (after) all these years, she had been wanting to see me get married and it's got to be virtually?"

Will Smith has been in a lot of pain for a long time. While fans assumed his marriage to actress Jada Pinkett Smith was rock solid, the couple was going through a rough patch due to Jada's extramarital affair with troubled singer August Alsina.

In a video clip from 2018 that resurfaced online, Will poured out his heart about love and happiness lost during Jada's emotional affair with August.

"Love. I asked her what was one of the biggest revelations she had had about love. She said you cannot make a person happy. I thought that was a real deep idea," said Will.

"You can make a person smile, you can make a person feel good, you can make a person laugh, but whether a person is happy is deeply utterly and completely out of your control.

"I remember the day I retired. I literally said to Jada, 'That's it. I retire. I retire from trying to make you happy. I need you to go make yourself happy and just prove to me it's even possible.'"

Will was passionate as he recalled the love he had for Jada in the beginning: "We came into this false romantic concept that somehow when we got married we would become one. What we realized is that we were two completely separate people on two completely separate individual journeys and that we were choosing to walk our separate journeys together.

"But her happiness was her responsibility and my happiness was my responsibility. And we decided that we were gonna find our individual, internal private separate joy and then we were going to present ourselves to the relationship and to each other already happy.

"Not coming to each other begging with our empty cups out demanding that she fills my cup and demanding that she meets my needs.

"It's unfair and it's kind of unrealistic. And it can be destructive to place the responsibility for your happiness on anybody other that yourself."
 

Will finally got his chance to force Jada to confess her infidelities in front of millions of shocked viewers on Friday.

Will and Jada brought themselves to the Red Table on Facebook to discuss the allegations that she took advantage of drug-addled singer August Alsina to satisfy her own sexual needs.

Jada admitted in so many words that the affair happened -- but only after Will pressed her to admit her "entanglement" was actually an extramarital relationship.

The 51-year-old actor didn't let Jada slide the first time she mentioned an "entanglement" with the virile 27-year-old stud during a "break" in their marriage.

"This is your red table and you, like, brought yourself to the red table," said Will. "I think, um, you need to say clearly what happened.

"As far as what?" asked Jada, getting mildly defensive.

"You and I decided we were gonna take our space - and then what happened? asked Will with a smirk on his face.

An impatient Jada repeated: "Yeah, and then I got into an entanglement with August. That's what I said."

"An entanglement?" said Will, as they both cracked up laughing.

"A relationship," said Will, as 48-year-old Jada finally admitted she was romantically involved with August.

"I was done wit' 'cho ass. I was done wit' you," Will told Jada.

"You gon' get me back? I think you got me back," Jada laughed. "I think we're good on that, okay?"

To which her husband replied, "Okay, that's probably true."

Deelishis, real name Chandra Davis, tied the knot with Raymond Santana Jr., of Central Park 5 fame, at a small ceremony in Duluth, Georgia on Sunday.

The couple got engaged in October 2019 after less than 6 months of dating. They have children from previous relationships.

Reality TV personality Kandi Burruss, who attended the quickie wedding, posted photos from the nuptials on her Instagram.

 

She captioned one image: "Congratulations @santanaraymond & @iamsodeelishis!!!!! I’m so happy for y'all & Im happy to say that I had a little something to do with this love connection!"

She captioned another photo: "Sorry fellas she's off the market now! @iamsodeelishis..."

Deelishis, 42, is best known as the winner of VH1's hit reality TV show Flavor of Love 2. She was chosen by rapper Flavor Flav over season 1 runner-up Tiffany 'New York' Pollard.

Santana, 45, is one of five Black and Hispanic teenagers arrested for the rape and assault of a white executive, dubbed the Central Park jogger, in Manhattan, NY in 1989.

A Hispanic male later confessed to the crime and the five men were released from prison after serving sentences ranging from 6 to 13 years. They were compensated with a multi-million dollar settlement.

The Central Park 5 case was featured in a highly-rated Netflix miniseries.

R&B star Omarion, pictured right with ex-fiancee Apryl Jones, has no qualms about his baby mama dating his former B2K bandmate Lil Fizz (inset). Omarion, 35, insists everyone has the right to be happy, including his baby mama.

The "Ice Box" singer split from Apryl Jones in 2016, and they remain cordial friends. Apryl recently made headlines after embarking on a new romance with promiscuous reality star Fizz, real name Dreux Frederic, 33.

The budding relationship has been well-documented on their reality show, Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood, leading many viewers to criticize the pair for apparently disrespecting Omarion, and Fizz's ex-girlfriend, fellow cast member Moniece Slaughter.

Omarion, who shares five-year-old son Megaa and three-year-old daughter A'mei with 32-year-old Apryl, has addressed the controversy, making it clear that he doesn't care what she does.

"I don't feel no ways, I don't feel any way about it," he told VladTV. "I think that if they're happy, then they should be happy."

One thing Omarion does take issue with is how the personal drama surrounding Jones and Fizz's romance has been played up for clicks and views. "I think they should change the narrative, though," he stated.

"She's still the mother of my children. When something affects her, it affects my kids, and that affects me. But what she does is, you know, live your life! I think people should do whatever makes them happy."

Wedding bells will be ringing for Nicki Minaj and her fiancé Kenny "Zoo" Petty. The couple set the date for next week, as Nicki's fans share their concerns for her online.

"We've gotten our marriage license, but there's a particular pastor who I want to officiate, and so she was just made available as of today," the rapper told E! News.

"She told me she's available within the next week, so we could be married in the next seven days."

The future Mrs. Petty and her bew obtained a marriage license in late July. But she had been referring to him as her husband for months prior.

"We're very close as friends, 'cause we've known each other since we were kids, but also, we're so sexually attracted to each other. We always wanna do it," the middle-aged rap star told E! News.

But Nicki's fans are worried that the "Barbie Tingz" rapper is rushing a little too quickly down the aisle. And that she may be headed for trouble. They say Kenny has a criminal history and he's a registered sex offender.

But Nicki dismissed their concerns.

"People can say all they want, Nicki added, "The only person that can tell me what to do is my man, and that's only because he got some good D, but if he stops having good D, then not even he can tell me what to do."
