There was plenty of love among all the hip-hop of the 2016 BET Awards. When Taraji P. Henson won ‘Best Actress’ during the June 26 event, her ‘Baby Boy’ co-star, Tyrese, was her biggest supporter. This fans freaking out and shipping them hard! Click to see.
Who needs Leonardo DiCaprio, 41, and Kate Winslet, 40, when you have Tyrese, 37, and Taraji P. Henson, 45? Tyrese and the Empire star both appeared at the 2016 BET Awards and fans were swooning over them, wishing they would wind up together!
Taraji was all over the BET Awards on June 26, opening up the awards show at the Microsoft Theater (after Beyonce, 34, set the stage on fire) and coming back out when she won Best Actress for her awesome portrayal of Cookie on Empire. However, while she was accepting the award, fans just loved how Tyrese was still her biggest fan.
“Tyrese stood up for Taraji,” one fan wrote, adding that it was hella “cute.” While Tyrese and Taraji were never an item, the two were co-stars in the 2001 movie, Baby Boy. The fans certainly hadn’t forgotten the chemistry the two shared on screen, as one wrote, “I have always thought that [these two] should be together.” That fan wasn’t the only one, as another pointed out that Tyrese was the “only one standing and clapping” when she came to accepted her award.
I love how tyrese gave taraji a standing ovation 😩😭😭 #BETAwards

There was plenty of love on display during the BET Awards. Surprisingly, none of it was for Donald Trump, 70. The Donald got dissed not once, not twice, but three times! First, co-host Tracee Ellis Ross, 43, said that since single women are “the most influential demographics…in this election,” she would pick the next president. “Welcome to the White House, Hillary Clinton.”
Then Taraji took her shot at Donald. Finally, her co-host, Anthony Anderson, 45, took aim at Floyd Mayweather, 39, for supporting Trump. “I don’t know the hell you got tickets to the show if you’re a Republican,” the Black-ish star said to the retired boxer. Ouch!
Do you ship Tyrese and Tajari, HollywoodLifers? Do you wish they were a couple?
