Who Is Jessica White? — Nick Cannon’s Model Girlfriend That Refers To Him As Her “King”
It looks like Nick Cannon and Jessica White are back together! The pair who have been dating on and off since 2015 just confirmed that their relationship is back on with a sultry Instagram post. But who exactly is Jessica White?
White’s caption on the Instagram post said “Always been the love of my life always will be. REAL love can never be broken. You are me and I am you for eternity. @nickcannon you are a king always remember that sh*t.” She turned her comments off on this post.
Jessica White And Nick Cannon Have A Ton Of History Together
The pair first began dating in 2015 but kept their relationship under wraps as Cannon’s divorce from Mariah Carey was not yet final. At the time, an insider told E! News that “he makes her feel like she is on cloud nine and so loved. Nick is very affectionate to her when they are with each other.” But, it appeared the couple had broken up in early fall of 2016. Cannon came out with a song that went in-depth about sexual experiences he had with White rapping she was “best in the bed.” White was not happy that Cannon decided to talk about their personal sex life in a song. She said that she felt “betrayed.”
In 2018, they sparked dating rumors again after White wished Cannon a happy birthday in an Instagram post. “I love you,” the model wrote to the host. The pair were also spotted in 2019 in Washington, D.C. at the DC Jazz Festival. But, throughout all of this time, Cannon welcomed a son with model Brittany Bell in 2017 so their relationship truly has been on and off for quite some time. However, it seems now that they are rekindling things again and giving it another shot.
She Has Dated Other Celebrities In The Past
In the past, White has been linked to John Legend, Trey Songz, Terrel Owens, Sean Penn, and Ryan Philippe. So, she is no stranger to being in the spotlight when it comes to her very public celebrity relationships. White appeared in Legend’s music video for the song “So High” in 2009. Legend and White stepped out together at the MTV VMA’S in 2015 when his song “Ordinary People” was up for best R&B video. In fact, Chrissy Teigen even said that she remained friends with some of Legend’s model ex’s including White. And even though White’s been involved with some famous faces, there’s just something that keeps pulling her back to Cannon.
Jessica White Struggled With A Cocaine Addiction
White had to take a step back from her career after she developed a cocaine addiction at the age of 20. The now 35-year-old spoke to The Buffalo News about this addiction saying “It’s the fashion industry, so every stereotype that you’ve heard of, that’s exactly what it is.” This led her into dealing with depression and going on a downward spiral. She saw other models around her crumbling from the pressure of having to be perfect all the time and she did not want that life for herself. White was able to go back to her roots and overcome this addiction, becoming more heavily involved in the church in her native Buffalo, New York.
She also revealed that she was sexually abused at the age of 14, which led her to start Angel Wings, a foundation that helps local women out of abusive situations. The foundation even provides shelter for those who have experienced abuse at home and need a place to stay.
White has modeled for brands like Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Tommy Hilfiger and even walked the Victoria’s Secret runways before becoming a spokesperson for the makeup brand Maybelline. She played the role of Tammi in the rom-com film The Perfect Match. And with her giving her relationship with Cannon another go, it seems like her time in the spotlight is not over just yet.
