Musician and reality show judge Randy Jackson is one versatile artist. He is a bassist, a singer, a producer and we also know him as the longest-serving judge on ‘American Idol.’ He is currently appearing on FOX’s reboot version of ‘Name That Tune', where he has been roped in as a bandleader. The versatile musician is accompanied by host Jane Krakowski.
The show premiered on January 6, 2021. It tests contestants’ music knowledge, as they battle it out in an assortment of challenging musical games for cash and prizes. Each episode consists of two stand-alone half-hour contests, each pitting two players against each other as they race against the clock to test their knowledge of songs, performed by the live band.
Jackson’s impressive CV speaks for itself. The 64-year-old musician has recorded, produced and toured with several well-known artists and bands, ranging from Mariah Carey to 'N Sync and Whitney Houston. He has also worked with acclaimed global stars such as Céline Dion, Fergie, Stryper and Madonna. Jackson has always been in the news for his professional life but do you know who he is dating?
Who is Randy Jackson dating?
Before we dive into Jackson's dating life, let us take you through his married life. He was first married to singer-songwriter Elizabeth Jackson but, unfortunately, their marriage was dissolved in 1990. They had one daughter named Taylor. He then married Erika Riker, with whom he has two children, a daughter named Zoe and a son named Jordan. Citing irreconcilable differences, Riker filed for a divorce after 18 years of marriage in the year 2014, which was ultimately settled in 2019.
Now, coming to his dating life, after the former ‘American Idol’ judge’s divorce got finalized, he was spotted with a very young gorgeous woman identified as Simone. Apparently, she is also a musician. According to multiple reports, her age in 2019 was 27, when Randy Jackson was 62. The couple was first spotted at an art gallery in Los Angeles, as reported by The Daily Mail.
The love birds were also seen together in an Instagram photo in October 2018 which seems to hint that they got into the relationship much earlier. She had captioned the photo, 'Thanks for coming to see me perform last night lovess.' The lovebirds have hardly been seen in public, however. Cut to 2021, it is being reported by the website Celebs Couples, that Randy Jackson is not dating anybody right now and is very much single.
