Taraji P. Henson and Michael Strahan NOT Dating, Despite Report
Taraji P. Henson and Michael Strahan have not embarked on a romance, despite a new report implying that the pair is dating. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this rumor. We’re told it’s simply not true.
According to an inaccurate story from Star, Henson and Strahan are “smitten” with each other after hitting it off earlier this week when the “Empire” actress filled in for Kelly Ripa as guest co-host on “Live With Kelly & Michael.” A so-called source tells the tabloid that Strahan “flirted openly” with Henson during the show, and afterwards they had “an intimate dinner” at the Mandarin Oriental hotel.
The tabloid adds that Strahan and Henson are planning to go out on even more dates. “They seemed to really hit it off, and Michael is really intrigued by her,” says the magazine’s bogus “source,” adding that Henson wants “to take things slow.” It’s very convenient of Star to say Henson wants to take things slow, so that its readers won’t remember how wrong the tabloid was in three to six months from now.
As Gossip Cop noted, a source close to Strahan tells us exclusively the dating rumor is not true. It should be noted, as well, the former football star was recently spotted vacationing in St. Barts with a blonde woman, who he’s reportedly been dating for a few months.
