Who Is Melissa Heholt? J. Cole's Wife Is An Impressive Woman
If you thought that there were too many celebrity divorces this past year, perhaps 2016 will tell a different kind of story. And one rapper in particular may be starting to reverse the celebrity marriage curse. Case in point: In a recent interview, movie director Ryan Coogler inadvertently revealed that J. Cole is married to one Melissa Heholt. So who is she? You know, the woman with whom Cole is going to break the failed celebrity marriage spell? Well, we will definitely take a deeper look at her. But first, the marriage's introduction into the public eye deserves some attention.
When I say Coogler "inadvertently" exposed J. Cole's marriage, I mean it. The Creed director asked the rapper how getting married "changed" him, realized his slip-up, and apologized by saying he'd never interviewed anyone before. Cole, who is an exceedingly good sport, responded, "That was like one thing to not do. But it's all good... They know now." Isn't it nice when celebrities own up to things instead of trying to really poorly scramble to pull the wool over our eyes? It's like a breath of fresh air, I tell ya.
Back to Heholt, though. If one things for sure, it's that the new Cole-Heholt family is made up of two very successful and ambitious partners. Here's some more info about the new bride.
1. She's Private
To be frank here folks, there is not a ton of information about Heholt out there. And it's probably because she likes it that way.
2. She's Been With J. Cole For Over A Decade
Heholt and Cole apparently met in college, and have been together ever since.
3. She's An Event Planner
She even founded her own event planning company, Statice Events.
4. She's A Renaissance Woman
Event planning began as just a hobby for me, eventually blooming into a life-long passion. One would wonder why it took me until after I graduated with a M.S. in Childhood Education and some time teaching to figure this out. The process of planning an event gives me excitement like no other, so much that I was crowned the “go to girl” for planning special events amongst, my family, friends, and collegiate organizations.
5. She's The Executive Director Of J. Cole's Dreamville Foundation
In an interview with Karla With A Kay, Heholt said:
The Dreamville Foundation was started in October 2011 based in Fayetteville, N.C., to reveal to the youth their limitless potential through positive experiences, whether it is an event or program. I have been very involved with this organization as their Executive Director, helping to establish the organization and coordinate its events and programs.
So, yeah. As you've probably surmised, they're going to run the world together some day.
