6 Things You Should Know About Jessica Scales-Wilder
Her Ex-husband Deontay Wilder
You simply cannot talk about Jessica-Scales Wilder without making copious references to her ex-husband Deontay. So, here is an opportunity to know the professional boxer to whom Jessica’s public image is tied to.
Jessica’s ex was born as Deontay Leshun Wilder on October 22, 1985. As the current WBC Heavyweight titleholder (a position he assumed since 2015), he is nicknamed ‘The Bronze Bomber’ for winning the Olympic bronze as an amateur boxer in 2008. Deontay is currently rated third best heavyweight boxer in the world by both Transnational Boxing Rankings Board (TBRB) and the highly prestigious American boxing magazine, The Ring.
She’s The Second of Deontay’s Three Partners
Among the women with whom the heavyweight boxer has been publicly identified as romantic partners, Jessica-Scales Wilder comes second. Before her, the boxer had a long-term affair with Helen Duncan. Although the relationship didn’t metamorphose into marriage, it produced a kid. Then, after Jessica, Deontay married Telli Swift who is the only one who has featured on E! Network’s WAGS series among the three.
As for Jessica, after her marriage with Deontay ended, she has not been seen with any other man in public. From this, we can presume that she is currently single. But that may not be the case as it’s possible she has a lover but has decided to keep their romance away from the prying eyes of the public.
She Is Not Naieya Wilder’s Biological Mother
Deontay Wilder’s lovely first daughter Naieya made news headlines sometime in 2014 after the boxer announced that she’s been totally undeterred in her life despite being diagnosed with a crippling birth defect even before her birth in 2005. Then, just because the boxer was still married to Jessica-Scales Wilder, many online media began to report that Naieya was Jessica’s first daughter. This is not true, Naieya’s biological mother is Deontay’s first partner, Helen Duncan. So, Jessica is not Naieya’s biological mother, she was once her stepmother though.
