What in the world? Last we heard Michael Ealy, 39, and Taraji P. Henson were secretly dating following their ‘Think Like A Man’ filming and movie release. Now the actor has revealed he married longtime girlfriend Khatira Rafiqzada, 31, back in October?! And get this, they’ve been dating for nearly four years!
Michael broke the news via People.com that yes he’s married.
“Michael has always been a private guy, and he wanted to enjoy his time as a newlywed with his wife privately,” his rep said. “Now that some time has passed and the holidays are here, he wanted to share the news with his fans that he is married and very happy.”
But aren’t you wondering just who is this woman and where did she come from, right?! Talk about cry me a river. Sorry ladies.
We are lost for words did anyone see this coming? what are your thoughts?

Last month, we told you here first all about Michael Ealy and Taraji P. Henson dating. In an interview with the Wendy Show this morning, Ealy spoke on those rumors and wanted to clear things up a bit. He also spoke on the success of ‘Think Like A Man’, and what he likes in a woman. Here’s some of what he had to say.
On dating Taraji Ealy says jokingly,
“What I can tell you is that, that after the film, and I know where this is coming from, cause Taraji was stalking me a little bit. And I think that’s what’s really spawning all these rumors, so I told her, you know, you gotta stop.
But it was just a movie. No, no seriously, we’re not together, we’re not together. But I guess we sold it on screen cause a lot of people believed it.”
Watch below for more on what Mr. Ealy had to say.
To be quite frank, no one is expected to get an Oscar nominee here, but what is does provide is a hearty laugh, and lots of it!
In short, the movie is based off the best selling book ‘Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man’ by comedian and entertainment veteran Steve Harvey. It surrounds a group of women on the “hunt” to find their special someone. While “Mya” (Meagan Good) has enlisted the 90 day rule to safeguard her heart, Lauren (Taraji P. Henson) the successful woman finds it difficult to find a decent man in her tax bracket, Kristen (Gabrielle Union) the devoted girlfriend whose spent 9 years in a relationship with a man who’ve yet to grow up is losing patience, and Candace (Regina Hall), the divorcee and single mother can’t seem to find the time to date or even meet a potential prospect.
Where do they find themselves? Let’s meet the “Player”, Zeke (Romany Malco), the “momma’s boy, Michael (Terrence J), the “dreamer” or guy with potential, Dominic (Michael Ealy), and well, here’s Kristen’s boyfriend, the “perpetual adolescent” better known as Mr. Comfortable, Jeremy (Jerry Ferrara).
The Cotten Kandi website has just gotten word that actors Taraji P. Henson and Michael Ealy are dating!
An eyewitness reports, the ‘Think Like A Man’ co-stars were spotted during a recent outing at a basketball game at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. They entered the arena through a private entrance and, although they tried to be discrete, they were caught kissing! The couple seemed to have been enjoying each others company, sitting close and canoodling.
Henson and Ealy, are believed to have gotten pretty close while filming newly released film, ‘Think Like A Man’, and if you were among the millions of people who saw the film this weekend, you’ll know, their chemistry was bursting through the screen.
The news shouldn’t come as a surprise, however. Both actors have had some very kind words to say about each other during some recent interviews.
