Look who is 50! Taraji P. Henson has decided to celebrate her birthday in style with a group of friends.
The Empire actress decided to party on a massive yacht for her 50th birthday and gave her guests and followers an eyeful in a white thong bikini.
Henson wore a barely-there swimwear that revealed every inch of her body. The Baby Boy star left nothing to the imagination in the tiny bathing suit that she accessorized with a body chain.
The Hidden Figures star made sure to give the best angles possible as she posed for several pictures while on the massive boat.
A long list of celebrities stepped in the comment section to wish the actress a happy birthday, and her many fans did the same. However, many were surprised to see a massive tattoo on Henson’s belly.
The vine flower tattoo has sparked a heated debate about Henson’s body — some say it is real, while others claim that she had liposuction.
One fan of the actress praised her natural body by saying: “We love a natural body 😍. Happy birthday Taraji.”
A second backer wrote: “Don’t hurt em @tarajiphenson looking fine as wine girl. Happy Birthday.❤️”
A follower said that the star had plastic surgery and added: “She got the surgery coverup tat. . . Still cute tho. she looks so good with red hair.”
Another person, who supports that theory, explained: “That tattoo is to covering lipo incisions. Nobody gets it by choice, lol Wendy Williams, Kimbella, etc. I thought she was natural, though, but that’s a dead give away.”
However, this supporter told Henson she looked fabulous and went on to say: “Y’all are LYING! She is NOT 50!!! 😱 I look like isht, and I’m nowhere near her age omg I need to be this level of everything at 50.”
In a recent interview, Henson spoke about how black women suffer in silence because society deems that they are strong and do not feel pain.
Henson revealed: “Strong Black Woman descriptor dehumanizes our pain. It belittles our tears. It belittles our pain. We’re supposed to be able to watch our brothers and sons and fathers get murdered in the street, but we can take it because we’re strong.”
She added: “We can deal with it; we can handle it. And that’s just not true. We’re not fairies. We don’t magically rebound from pain. We hurt and suffer just like others.”
Henson seems to be living her best life as she ponders her next big career move.
