The cat's out of the bag and it's official, J. Cole is a married man!
During a special interview with Complex for the #MLKNow livestream it slipped that J. Cole and his long-time girlfriend Melissa Heholt had tied the knot.
Ryan Coogler took everyone by surprise when he asked the Dreamville rapper “How did getting married change you?”
Great question, but what he didn't realise was J. Cole hadn't actually publicly announced his marriage.
Cole was visibly caught off guard. “Oh, what is that?!” he said before awkwardly laughing it off. “That was like one thing to not do.”
“Nobody knows?” asked Coogler, to which Cole replied, “Well, they know now.”
Cole and Melissa met while attending St. John’s University in Queens, New York. Rap Up reports that there was rumours the two were engaged, but their nuptials were kept secret until now.
Sooo J.Cole is apparently engaged to his girlfriend of nine years Melissa Heholt 39👌 pic.twitter.com/2Ve4eLreD3— Isaiah Lee (@realylmusic) December 14, 2013
