What She Say? Taraji P. Henson: “Drake Was A Friend”

Taraji P. Henson spilled about the men she may or may not have dated in the entertainment biz. Cutting right to the chase (as she always does), Wendy Williams asked the Oscar-nominated actress a gamut of questions about Tyrese, Common, Terrence Howard and Drake. We absolutely adore the Baby Boy star and the way she keeps it all the way real. Here’s what she had to say:

On rumors that she dated Drake

Drake was a friend. It was cute because I knew he liked me and I kept looking at him like ‘If you were ten years older, boy whew’ but no.  I couldn’t because he is seven years older than my son.

On dating Common

Okay I’ll tell you the truth, Common and I did date. All the rest no.

On Terrence Howard

Terrence and I never ever [dated]. Here’s my thing, I don’t mix business with pleasure and I’m saying this to the young girls out there that want to get into the business. Whatever you do in your private life should be just that, private. If you are a hoe, girl be a hoe behind the scenes because if you are having sex with them, why would they want to work with you again? Think about it.

On Dating Tyrese

Not all all – ever. I promise you. If I did I would tell [you]. First of all, I am a horrible liar, these big ole’ eyes will tell on me. Oh gosh. I can’t lie’.

If Tyrese and I crossed that line the love wouldn’t be there.  The chemistry wouldn’t be there because Taraji and Tyrese did it.
