J. Cole Put A Ring On It!

If you were carrying a torch for J.Cole, sadly it’s time for you to blow out the flame.

J.Cole is officially off the market and apparently he has been for a while.

He married his long time girlfriend Melissa Heholt in such a hush manner we’re still not even sure how long he’s been married!

Heholt has an M.S. in childhood education and runs her own event planning company called Statice Events.The two have been together since his days at St. John’s University, but have always been extremely private about their relationship.

They’ve been so secretive that we probably would’ve never known they were married if it hadn’t been for Creed director Ryan Coogler.

Coogler sat down on Monday with Cole for a MLKNow event in Harlem. Apparently Coogler didn’t know that Cole was keeping his marriage on the low and plowed right into a question about his marriage.

“How did getting married change you, bro?”

Well apparently it must have messed with his memory because Cole seemed to forget for a second that he didn’t tell any of us (his fans) that he got married!

Coogler felt bad for outing Cole’s nuptials on-air, “I told you I never interviewed somebody before. Is that off-limits? Oh, my bad, bruh!”

Cole took it all in stride though telling Coogler, “That was like one thing to not do. No, I’m just joking. I’m joking. It’s all good…They know now.”

We definitely do know now and even though we’re sad to see Cole completely off the market, we’re happy for his love story and wishing him and Melissa the absolute best!
