Sage the Gemini
Jordin Sparks and the rapper Sage the Gemini were in a serious relationship from May 2015 to February 2016. They dated each other for almost nine months before calling it quits on February 11, 2016. According to an E! News article dated February 2016, sources said that their relationship started on a great note, but worsened and could not stand the test of time.
"Their relationship started off great in the beginning but as time went on Sparks was having trust issues—and Sage wasn't helping the matter any with his behavior. They had previously been able to work things out, but not this time. Having gone through a rough breakup with long-term boyfriend Jason Derulo, Sparks just didn't want to go there again with Sage," sources said.
Jordin Sparks was in a relationship with model and singer Steph Jones from March 2008 to November 2010. The duo broke up in November 2010. According to a BOSSIP article dated September 2012, Jones opened up on his struggles wherein he was practically living out in his car. This was something that even his mother and ex-girlfriend Jordin had no idea about, as he hid it from both of them. He said, "We didn’t live in the same state. I mean my mom didn’t even know. If my mom didn’t know and she knows everything, I could hide it from anybody."
Jones also shared that he had been living on a shoestring budget. Jones said, "I was living from check to check sometimes my phone had to get cut off. Sometimes I had to decide between putting gas in my car or food in my mouth. Years past and I would make money here and there but just enough to get by. Eventually the bills were piling up and I had no money coming in. The lease was up on my apartment so I started staying at different friends houses. Then I felt like I was wearing out my welcome. Then I was like, I got my car."
'Dancing with the Stars' Season 31 premieres globally on September 19, 2022, at 8pm ET on Disney+.
