Who is Jake Bongiovi? Millie Bobby Brown is dating Jon Bon Jovi's son
Millie Bobby Brown and Jake Bongiovi have made their relationship public months after speculation that the two had been dating. The two strolled the streets of New York City hand in hand on Thursday, June 17, making their public debut as a couple. Not much is known about Bongiovi's past dating history but Brown's relationship and split with Jacob Sartorius did create a lot of hype back in 2020.
'Stranger Things' star Brown, 17, sported a minimalist and relaxed look for the outing as seen in photos. She wore a tiered powder pink skirt, paired it with a white top, a couple of accessories including a necklace, earrings, chic sunglasses and a white tote. She completed the look with a pair of ballet flats. Bongiovi on the other hand matched Bobby's vibes with a beachy shirt, a pair of shorts, walking shoes and sunglasses. Both of them were masked up while out in public and they were accompanied by Brown's therapy dog Winnie who she travels with everywhere to deal with anxiety. She was propped inside a tote bag which Brown and Bongiovi took turns carrying.
Who is Millie Bobby Brown's boyfriend Jake Bongiovi?
Jake Bongiovi, 19, is the second youngest son of rockstar Jon Bon Jovi with his wife Dorothea. The couple has been married for the past three decades and has three other children. Bongiovi first made headlines at 15 when he helped organize the Pennigton School's national student walkout in March 2018. He led the movement at the school along with Rickey Eng to protest against the government's inaction regarding mass killings in schools across the country. A month ago, 17 students were killed during a school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
While it isn't clear when Bongiovi and Brown started to date but their relationship was outed by the popular Gossip Girl-y Instagram account @deauxmoi in April which reported that the two were "introduced by a mutual friend." Earlier this month, Bongiovi shared a photograph with Brown while they were out on a coffee run and captioned it with a simple "bff" with a heart emoji.
Brown was reportedly dating Joseph Robinson previously. The two made news after she was spotted cozying up to the rugby player on social media in January 2020. He had uploaded a photograph of the both of them on his Snapchat captioning it "ly x" which seemingly stood for "love you." The two had been hanging out since 2019 and fans had dug up a couple of old photos of the rugby player which also included some holiday snaps from his Maldives holiday featuring Brown.
But the two of them went their separate ways by August. Later on, she sparked romance rumors with her 'Enola Holmes' co-star Louis Partridge after they posted multiple photos with each other on social media. Despite their fandoms rooting for this union, they turned out to be nothing more than friends. "Louis and I worked very hard at bonding and creating a very close bond so that [the relationship] looked as realistic as possible. And luckily, now he’s just one of my closest friends," a report stated citing her 2020 interview with Girlfriend magazine.
