Charlamagne Tha God (born Lenard McKelvey on June 29, 1978) and Jessica Gadsden met as kids in South Carolina. They began dating when he was 16 years old and were high school sweethearts.

In his highly acclaimed book Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It (2017), the radio host recounts the early days of their relationship, revealing how she supported him while he pursued his broadcasting goals and eventually became the mother of his three kids. But that doesn’t mean their relationship has been without bumps.

Charlamagne Tha God has acknowledged being unfaithful during their relationship on his programme. When one of his children began to doubt their connection, he told xoNecole in 2017 that he decided to truly commit to Gadsden and marry her.

She has been spotted out and about with Charlamagne Tha God on occasion, but she does not appear to have any social media accounts. In the past, the radio presenter addressed his family’s absence from the digital world, saying, “I never felt like it was a place for my family to be.” I’m not knocking those who do it, but I don’t want my family on Facebook or Twitter. That’s something I’ve decided not to do.” But, if you’re lucky, you could find him discussing her on his programme in the future.
