Taraji P. Henson & Michael Strahan Reportedly Dating
Is Taraji P. Henson filling in the gap for Michael Strahan these days? According to sources close to the two, the Empire diva and the daytime talk show star have entered the early stages of bae-hood. Apparently, sparks popped off between the two when Taraji sat in for Kelly Ripa on “Live With Kelly And Michael” earlier this month — somewhere between their flirty banter on-stage and Michael showing off his push-up skills during commercial breaks:
Though Taraji was somewhat interested, she sincerely thought that Michael was just putting on for the cameras — until he pressed the issue further once filming was over. According to Star magazine:
“Michael flirted openly with Taraji on camera, but he wasn’t kidding — off camera, he kept asking her, ‘When can I take you out?'”
According to the mag, Taraji soon accepted his offer and let the former baller take her out for drinks and dining at the Mandarin Oriental. Taraji appears to be feeling him, but isn’t putting all her eggs in the Strahan basket quite yet.
“She’s definitely smitten, but she likes to take things slow!”
Well alright then! What do you think of these two as a couple?
