Melissa Heholt maybe the wife of a very popular rapper in the country, but that is not what defines her. Being the long term partner of rapper American-German hip-hop artist Jermaine Lamarr Cole, known by his stage name J. Cole, has provided Melissa with popularity, but she likes to lead a private life and continue her job as an event planner in her own company, Statice Events.
She is an avid supporter and the biggest fan of her celebrity husband, and also works as executive director of J. Cole's Dreamville Foundation. Definitely an ideal wife!
Melissa Heholt Married To J. Cole
Melissa Heholt is a fortunate person since she found love without much hardships in life. Cupid struck her for the first time while studying at St. John's University in Queens, New York in 2003. She met Jermaine Lamarr Cole in the sophomore year, and they soon became inseparable.
Despite studying different majors at that time, the couple shared an immense amount of love for each other. Unlike most of the relationships that do not last long in colleges, Melissa's love life was an exception. With each passing day, Melissa's relationship with her boyfriend only grew stronger.
After college life, Melissa pursued her career in event planning, and J. Cole entered the music industry. Although they had to follow different paths, they never gave up on each other and continued fighting the distance in their relationship.

To give their love a new title, Melissa's partner J. Cole popped up the question on 10 December 2010 after years of dating, and the couple got engaged. Since both Melissa and J. Cole are notoriously private, the engagement was not confirmed by them, but the MTV news publicized it.
After six years of engagement, the couple got married on 18 January 2016. Not much is known about the wedding ceremony since neither the groom nor the bride has talked about it.
Following their marriage, the couple welcomed their first child on 8 December 2016. Again, the couple had not confirmed anything, but the news of the pregnancy and the birth of their child was assumed from the lyrics of J. Cole's 2016 album.
Decoding the lyrics on his songs, it seemed that J. Cole was talking about his newborn daughter in the song. But was he?
In 2018, he revealed in an interview that his first child was not a daughter, but a son!
Melissa and her husband are so private that they did not even attempt to blow off the rumors with facts. However, the truth has been now spilled, so it can be assumed that Melissa is relishing her secret married life with her husband and son.
