Thanks to social media, everyday people have been able to build lasting careers in their respective fields. Over the years, we’ve watched various video vixens, models, and bartenders use social media as their stepping stone to launch other projects. Case in point: Bernice Burgos.
Bernice’s beauty and growing celebrity has made her a desirable bachelorette, which has fueled rumors about her romantic life.
Word on the street is that Bernice has been off the market for some time, with Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown being her main squeeze.
Here’s everything that we know.
Who is Bernice Burgos dating? She's been linked to Jaylen Brown, who scored the largest NBA deal with a five-year contract extension in 2023.
Bernice, who started as a bartender, quickly switched gears to becoming a video vixen and entrepreneur. The curvaceous beauty has been a permanent fixture in various brand campaigns and hip-hop music videos including Rick Ross’s “Diced Pineapples,” DJ Khaled’s “Do You Mind,” and J. Cole’s “Work Out.” She also has her own brand, Bold & Beautiful Sleepwear.
Whispers about Bernice and Jaylen started in late 2022. Then, in February 2023, a leaked photograph of the pair on vacation pretty much served as proof in the pudding of their coupledom.
In the photo, which was originally shared by gossip account Glock Topickz, the two are seen enjoying some R&R at a tropical location with a luxurious villa in the background.
Keep in mind, gossip account Gossip of the City Tea also posted a video of Bernice and Jaylen being cozy with one another at a club in September 2022. Not to mention, Bernice had attended a few Boston Celtics games.
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, 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, Ashley Marie.
As for Jaylen, he's been doing quite well for himself. According to the NBA, he officially made history by signing the largest NBA deal which consisted of a five-year, $303.7 million supermax extension with the Boston Celtics.
The deal was made official on Wednesday, July 26, 2023.
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.
"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.
So, it’ll be interesting to see how the pair’s relationship develops.
