Who is Lamar Jackson's girlfriend? Harry Potter fan Jaime Taylor met QB in college
Lamar Jackson's girlfriend Jaime Taylor admires how the NFL star ignores critics
NFL season is just around the corner and Lamar Jackson is getting ready for all the action this season. The Baltimore Ravens quarterback wasted no time finding his way back to the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills, Maryland, defying schedules about when rookies and veterans may report to the field.
Jackson, the former league MVP in 2021 who is set to play his fourth NFL season, is one of three significant dominoes likely to fall in the quarterback-extension market soon, the other two being Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen and Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.
Beyond the pitch, NBA stars have recently been in the news for their dating lives. Last week, we reported that Clippers guard Patrick Beverley's girlfriend was once allegedly 'stolen' by rapper Drake. Earlier in April, NBA legend Paul Pierce was seen drinking and partying with strippers in a live video, putting the spotlight on his married life, while Giannis Antetokounmpos is expecting a second child with his girlfriend. Here's all you need to know about Lamar Jackson's better half.
Who is Lamar Jackson's girlfriend?
Lamar Jackson keeps a very low profile when it comes to his private affairs, so little is known about his personal life. But we do know that he has been dating Jaime Taylor since his college days at the University of Louisville. The couple met in 2017 and have been together ever since but their love story has never been in the spotlight. This is because Taylor keeps herself completely away from the public eye. There is no information on her, no photos of her on any of Jackson's social media profiles, and there are no press photos of the two of them together anywhere either!
What we do know about Taylor's existence is from an extensive 2019 interview Taylor did with journalist Clifton Brown of the Baltimore Ravens. For the article, Brown spoke with Taylor about her boyfriend and how she admires how he ignores his critics and is driven to prove them wrong.
“He’s taught me how to handle criticism,” Taylor told Brown via BaltimoreRavens.com. “I mean, I used to get mad when I’d read stuff. Then I’d look at him, and he’s just fine. He says, ‘Let them do the talking. You don’t have to say anything. Just show them."
Jackson too has given us a few bits of information about his girlfriend. While speaking about his 2019 Halloween costume to Heavy, the NFL player talked about how Taylor is a fan of Harry Potter and Jackson agreed to dress up as the popular wizard.
“Harry Potter. I was Harry,” Jackson explained when he was about his costume. “I thought it was pretty cool. My girl she wanted [to do a Harry Potter theme]. Had the little coat on, I felt like I was back at the wizard’s place. It was pretty dope…I wouldn’t say I am [a fan of Harry Potter]. I watched a few movies but it’s pretty long. I get sleepy. I’ll be watching it for like a good hour then [I fall asleep]. Then Harry Potter start watching me.”
