Of course, the news set social media ablaze, with many people criticizing the couple due to their age gap. In case you didn’t know, Bernice is 42 years old, with Jaylen 16 years her junior.

Many people wasted no time calling Bernice a cougar, while a lot of men praised Jaylen for the relationship.

On the flip side, some men are in disbelief that the relationship is real, with some claiming that he’s simply having fun and won't take her seriously due to her age. Many argued that he should have chosen to date Bernice’s daughter, 26-year-old Ashley Marie.

Bernice Burgos has dated a few famous men in the past.

This is not Bernice’s first rodeo dating a famous man.

In 2017, Bernice was rumored to have been dating T.I. Unfortunately, Bernice was accused of being a “pass around b—h” by Tiny after a fan made a comment on the singer's Instagram page, per TheJasmineBRAND.

In case you’ve been out of the loop, Tiny filed for divorce from T.I. in December 2016 — although the pair later reconciled — citing infidelity issues on the rapper’s part to have ruined the marriage.

Interestingly, Bernice clapped back at the accusation of her being a “homewrecker” and “pass around” in the comment section.

"That home had BEEN broken," Bernice wrote in the comment section of the post. "And I've NEVER dealt with a married man in my life... Technically when a person files for divorce it's saying they're moving on with their lives and their marriage has failed... NEVER have I ever been passed around."

Before that, Bernice was also said to have dated Drake in 2015.

In a July 27, 2016 interview with The Breakfast Club, Bernice seemingly confirmed that she and Drake were an item at one point, but remain friends.

"Drake, I’m going to tell you something about Drake. He’s the sweetest person ever," Bernice told Angela Yee, Charlamagne Tha God, and DJ Envy. "He’s always been good to me and I’ve always been good to him. I will go to his wedding right now if he gets married. He’s surely going to invite me. Why not? I’m cool."

With all of that said, it appears that Bernice and Jaylen’s coupledom is different from her past situations. This is the first time we’ve actually seen multiple receipts of Bernice and Jaylen hanging out.

So, it’ll be interesting to see how the pair’s relationship develops.
