Family members of those killed in the Charleston Church massacre spoke to the accused gunman via video chat on Friday afternoon with heavy hearts.

During the emotional bond hearing, many of the loved ones representing the victims told 21-year-old, Dylann Roof that despite their sorrow and pain, they still forgive him.

“I forgive you … I will never talk to her ever again. I will never hold her again, but I forgive you,” the daughter of victim, Ethel Lance said.

The mother of Tywanza Sanders, who watched her son die, said while on the stand, “We welcomed you Wednesday night to our bible study with open arms. Every fiber in my body hurts and I’ll never be the same. Sanders was my son … May God have mercy on you.”

The family member of MyraThompson said, “Me and my family forgive you … take this opportunity to repent.”

The granddaughter of victim, Daniel Simmons said, “Although my grandfather and the other victims died …this is proof that everyones plea for is proof that they lived and loved and their legacy will live and live. Hate won’t win.”

While the family representatives spoke words of forgiveness, Roof had a blank stare on his face, showing no emotion.

Roof is being tried on 9 counts of murder and 1 count of possession of a weapon during time of the crime. His bond for possession of a weapon has been set at $1 million.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden



Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
