Jordin Sparks and rapper Sage the Gemini were in a serious relationship from May 2015 to February 2016. They dated for almost nine months before breaking up on February 11, 2016. According to an E! News articles from February 2016 said sources said their relationship started out on a great note but deteriorated and didn’t stand the test of time.
“Their relationship started off great, but over time, Sparks had trust issues — and Sage didn’t help with his behavior. They had managed to work things out before, but not this time. After they went through a rough breakup with his longtime friend Jason Derulo, Sparks just didn’t want to go there with Sage again,” sources said.
Jordin Sparks was in a relationship with model and singer Steph Jones from March 2008 to November 2010. The duo broke up in November 2010. According to a September 2012 BOSSIP article, Jones opened up about his fights where he practically lived in his wagon. Even his mother and ex-girlfriend Jordin didn’t know about it because he kept it a secret from both of them. He said: “We didn’t live in the same state. I mean, my mother didn’t even know. If my mother didn’t know and she knew everything, I could hide it from everyone.”
Wise the twins
Jones also shared that he had been living on a tight budget. Jones said: “I lived check to check, sometimes my phone had to be turned off. Sometimes I had to choose between putting gas in my car or food in my mouth. Years have passed and I’ve made money here and there, but just enough to make ends meet. At some point the bills started piling up and I ran out of money. The lease on my apartment was up, so I started staying with various friends. Then I felt that my reception was exhausted. Then I thought: I have my car.”
