The Model Has Romanced Some of Our Favorite Celebrities
Her first relationship to make the headlines was with the notable American actor and rapper, Nick Cannon back in 2016. The pair became so close that Jena got to feature on his Wild N’ Out show.
At the time she featured on the show, their relationship was reportedly 9 months old. Unfortunately, the relationship did not see the end of 2017 as they called it off. Their relationship lasted a little over a year.
Next on the Instagram model’s dating list is Antonio Brown whom she dated for a couple of months in 2017. Antonio is popular for playing for the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steeler.
At the time of his fling with Frumes he had not completely severed ties with his former girlfriend and mother of his kids, Chelsie Kyriss.
As fate would have it or according to Brown who believed God told him to mend his relationship with Chelsie, he ended his relationship with Jena and went back to Kylsie.
This did not go down well with the Instagram star who was of the opinion that Brown used her to get his ex-girlfriend jealous and left her when they reconciled.
She took to her page to share her views and even dropped his number on her caption calling on her fans to give him a call and ask him to return her belongings. Jena eventually got over the split and went ahead to delete all the memories she had with Brown on her page.
The beautiful lady found love again with the Manchester United footballer, Jesse Lingard, later in 2017 and her time with him was spent traveling between Barcelona and Manchester. However, this relationship also came with its flaws as Frumes later realized that Lingard was having an affair with his staff, Leonie Borek. She called off the relationship sometime in March 2018 and they moved on with their separate lives.
Jena Frumes would then move on with the American singer, Jason Derulo. The pair seem to have become an item from the early part of 2020. It was reported that for a good part of the CoronaVirus lockdown in the United States, they were together at Jason’s home in Los Angeles.
Their time together have been amply shared with fans as they regularly keep them updated with videos of their workout sessions together.
