She and her boyfriend were first spotted together nearly two years ago, but they’ve mostly been Hidden Figures from the public eye since, But on the Essence Yes, Girl! podcast, the Empire star finally confirmed the rumors she is dating 34-year-old former NFL player Kelvin HaydenShe said:

“I’m happy in my personal life. Finally it has happened to me!”

So why is she so secretive about it — and why confirm now? She explained:

“It was all over The Shade Roomanyway. You know, I’m not the type to blast my personal business, but you know, I think that it’s important for people to know that I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am. We’ve been together for two years. And no one would really know that because I don’t blast my info like that but I’m very happy.”

LOLz! She isn’t wrong!

But gurl is downplaying how private she is. There’s a difference between “not blasting it” and not having your man escort you to your many red carpets.

And that man looks like he could hold like 50 purses. LOLz!
