Mia Khalifa, one of the most famous ex-pornstars on the internet, recently went public with her new boyfriend Jhay Cortez.
The social media sensation, 28, parted ways with her ex-husband Robert Sandberg earlier this year. MEAWW previously reported how Khalifa revealed that 'therapy and efforts' failed to save their marriage. We also reported how the former adult star was trolled for berating porn stars after she recalled her 'most toxic and uncharacteristic' three months in the adult entertainment industry.
Who is Jhay Cortez?
Jhay Cortez, whose real name is Jesús Manuel Nieves Cortez, is a Puerto Rican singer-songwriter. After being born in Puerto Rico on April 9, 1993, the artist grew up in New Jersey and was thus raised speaking both Spanish and English. The star began composing music at the age of 15 and went on to write a series of songs for Tito El Bambino, with one of the tracks being featured on the Latin Grammy-winning album 'Invencible'.
Cortez began to sing for Latin pop group Stereo 4 in 2013. He made his debut as a soloist three years later. His music started to rise on the charts by 2019, with his first album 'Famouz' making the Billboard 200 list and being certified triple platinum. He released a song with fellow artist Bad Bunny the following year, cracking the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 list. The two would later perform the hit number at the Grammys in 2021.
Rumors about Cortez's relationship with Khalifa blossomed in the summer of 2021 following a video posted online which showed them cuddling and singing one of his songs together. Khalifa even joined Cortez on stage in October at the Jose Miguel Agrelot Coliseum in Puerto Rico. The lovebirds danced around on stage and later shared a passionate kiss, a moment they both shared on their respective Instagram stories.
Both Khalifa and Cortez posted photos of them together on Friday, November 5, appearing to confirm their relationship. The singer shared a photo of the duo in a car, followed by a video that showed them kissing over and over again. "LA PRESION YA NO SOY YO ES ELLA 👑✨🤍 @MIAKHALIFA", he wrote in the caption, which translates to "The pressure is not me, it is her."
Meanwhile, Khalifa uploaded a series of images on her Instagram, including a photo of the couple. "Te sigo ❤️🔥 @jhaycortez", she captioned the post, which translates to "I follow you."
It's worth noting that Cortez is slated to appear at many music festivals across various countries over the next couple of months, including the Coca-Cola Flow Fest in Mexico and Lollapalooza in Argentina. Sources have claimed the artiste is between 5' 8'' and 5' 11'' and has a net worth of around $1.5 million. Meanwhile, his girlfriend Khalifa is reportedly 5' 2'' and worth around $3 million, per Wealthy Gorilla. Khalifa, who is mostly known for her pornstar career, now works as a webcam model and social media personality. She has a YouTube channel and often hosts live streams on Twitch and Patreon.
