Jazmine Sullivan is known to not reveal much about her private life but, back in 2017, she posted an Instagram message for her boyfriend
Jazmine Sullivan is known all over for her prowess as an R&B, reggae and soul singer who has produced hits like 'Need U Bad', 'Bust Your Windows', 'Lions, Tigers & Bears' and 'Holding You Down (Goin' in Circles)'. The 33-year-old singer, who is a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has always kept her personal life under the wrap. She even took a hiatus starting 2011 writing on Twitter (in a now-deleted tweet), "I promised myself when it wasn't fun anymore I wouldn't do it. And, here I am. I'm not saying I won't ever sing again in my life because I don't believe that. But in this moment…right now…got some things to figure out." Sullivan later returned in 2014 with her third studio album 'Reality Show' to widespread critical acclaim. Let's take a look at the singer's dating life.
Jazmine Sullivan's dating history
Sullivan is known to not reveal much about her private life but, back in 2017, she posted a message for her boyfriend, Dave Watson, also a musician from Philly. Sullivan wrote, "Haven’t been able to separate since our first date. We didn't know what "this" was, but we knew we didn’t wanna let it go! Then U took this beat-up the heart and made it feel brand new again...So thank u! Thank u for being u! For loving and respecting me daily. U ain't always rt, but ur just rt for ME! So Hbd.. can't wait to spend all of them looking at u the same way! Love u with all my heart baby!" The Instagram post has since been deleted. There are no clear reports about whether the couple is still dating, but Sullivan hasn't spoken about a new relationship since this 2017 post.
Back in 2015, Sullivan revealed details about the domestic abuse she suffered at the hands of an ex-boyfriend who has not been named. Speaking to Power 105’s 'The Breakfast Club', she said that the ex once slapped her so hard she couldn't hear out of one ear. She knew she had to leave him and went into a deep depression, but told everyone that music wasn't fun anymore as a means of staying out of the limelight until she got herself together.
The multiple-time Grammy-nominated songstress said, "I left music because I was in a really bad relationship. It had gotten abusive. Just having to deal with the industry and that my personal life was so bad, I had to go." Talking about the tweet about her sudden hiatus, Sullivan explained, "When I wrote that, I was going through some things, so I was kinda just trying to give an excuse without really telling what exactly was going on with my life. That was the thing that I could think of without saying, 'You know what everybody, I'm going through some real sh*t.'"
Her song 'Forever Doesn’t Last' from the album 'Reality Show' addresses her break up which she said was therapeutic for her to get through her failed relationship. She also has a track titled 'Masterpiece' from the same album which she said is about finding her worth.
