“She needs to keep channeling her “Style and grace” vibe … cause this ain’t her lane 💀,” a second fan wrote.

A third fan replied, “Respectfully… no ❤️.”

While other fans gushed over the “Empire” actress’s new look.

“She looks good!” a fourth fan raved.

Taraji took the series of photos in a wooden outdoor shower with water dripping down her curvy body. She paired the look with her multi-colored passion twists that included shades of red and burgundy, and a bare face.

The “Hidden Figures” star captured fans’ attention back on Sept. 21 when she took to her Instagram page and posted several breathtaking photos of herself posing on the beach in her cheetah print swimsuit. The shots showed her in a range of poses, from crawling in the sand on all fours as the waves crash onto her, to sipping some champagne with her sunglasses on. She added a caption of three wave emojis, and the post generated over 350,000 likes and more than 3,900 comments.

Many people think these newly released sexy photos stem from an alleged breakup with her fiancé Kelvin Hayden. According to Page Six, the couple was forced to postpone their April wedding due to the pandemic. Fans started wondering if the pair broke up after Taraji celebrated her 50th birthday without the ex-NFL player on Sept. 11. She commemorated the moment on a yacht in Mexico with her girlfriends, who included Mary J. Blige. Prior to that Kelvin has been absent from the actress’s social media posts for months.
