There are gonna be a lot of broken hearts out there when they hear this news: Rapper J. Cole secretly married his longtime girlfriend and college sweetheart Melissa Heholt, who he met at St. John’s University in Queens.
In a live interview with Creed director Ryan Coogler, Cole was asked how marriage had changed the rapper. Cole was obviously stunned by the question; he evidently had been keeping news of his nuptials under lock and key.
“That was like, one thing NOT to do…. But it’s all good, they know now.”
Its not uncommon for performers–often males–with a large female following to keep their relationship status low-key out of fear of losing a portion of their fan base. But Cole’s response to the question is still kinda shocking.
