From her baby daddy being physically abusive to having a child during her University days, Taraji P Henson is baring it all in her new memoir titled ‘Around The Way Girl.’
Apparently Taraji met William LaMarr Johnson, whom in the book she refers to only as Mark and the love of her life when she was 17 years.
The book comes out October 11 but in the mean time, People Magazine revealed a few shocking revelations made by the Empire sensation in her book.
According to People Mag…
”From the beginning it was a passionate but turbulent relationship, in part because Mark felt he was somehow inferior to Henson.
“You’re better than me,” she recalls him saying to her, while she rested in his arms. “You need to leave me alone.”
They broke up and Mark went on to father two children with separate women. However, the pair got together in the early ’90s when Henson was at Howard University where she studied theater.
Henson stayed in school during her pregnancy and initially felt supported by Mark, but writes that things began to unravel after Marcell’s birth. She recalls that the stress of a new baby, working and Mark’s disappearances late at night resulted in a huge fight one night that turned physical.
“The next thing I knew, Mark’s balled-up fist was coming straight for my face. I fell onto the bed crying and holding my mouth; blood seeped off my lips and across my teeth,” Henson writes. “Droplets splashed across my shoes … slowly creeping into the fibers of my suede boots.”
