The $303.7-million supermax extension Jaylen Brown signed in July — ranked as the richest deal in NBA history — seems to be paying off for the Boston Celtics. Brown strutted his stuff on Sunday, Dec. 17, 2023, during the Celtics’ 114–97 victory over the Orlando Magic.

Brown scored 31 points in the game, including 17 points in the last 12 minutes, Boston.com reported.

“I’m just a basketball player,” Brown said, per the site. “I’m a do-whatever-the-team-needs kind of guy. First quarter, fourth quarter, I just take advantage of the opportunities I get, make the right reads, and if I get in a rhythm at any point in the game it can just add to the success.”

So, who does Brown have cheering him on? Here’s what we know about who he's dating.

Jaylen is reportedly dating Bernice Burgos, who boasts 7.3 million Instagram followers. In her Instagram bio, Bernice says she’s a Fashion Nova ambassador and the CEO of the Bold & Beautiful clothing line.

In addition, Bernice appeared in music videos for Drake, DJ Khaled, Rick Ross, J. Cole, and other rappers. She and Drake were rumored to be a couple in 2015, per the New York Post.

Jaylen and Bernice were linked when they were reportedly seen dancing together on an outing to a New York City pub in September 2022. Social media photos from February 2023 appeared to show the duo getting close on a beach, according to the Post.

Jaylen Brown also has famous family members.

Sports fans already know one of Jaylen’s family members. His cousin, A.J. Bouye, is an NFL cornerback who played for the Houston Texans, the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Denver Broncos, and the Carolina Panthers, according to NBC Sports Boston. Jaylen rooted for A.J. in 2018 when the Jaguars faced the New England Patriots, telling reporters, “Good luck to the Patriots, but I hope my cousin picks off Brady three times and takes it to the house.”

Jaylen’s father, meanwhile, is the 7-foot boxer Marselles Brown, who became the 2016 World Boxing Union (WBU) World Champion and the 2015 WBU C.A.M. Heavyweight Champion. He charted a career record of 31-18 with 23 knockouts, according to MassLive.com.

In a 2016 interview with Boxing247.com, Marselles said he came out of retirement to show his sons — Jaylen and his older brother, Quenton Jr. — that he wasn’t giving up on his dreams.

“So I didn’t want them to give up on theirs,” he added. “I am extremely proud of both my sons. I am especially proud of Jaylen. He is an extraordinary athlete and very smart. I want them to know to stay on course and don’t let anybody distract them, and they’ll be just fine.”
