Who are Keith Powers's parents?

For the duration of time that we have known him, Keith has kept a fairly low profile; we know that Keith is the proud son of Keith Powers Sr. and Jennifer Clark. There isn't much information about Keith's parents on Beyoncé's internet, but after doing our research, we found out that the heartthrob is the eldest child of the couple's four kids, and was born in the sunny, picturesque Sacramento, Calif.!

Keith Powers has an impressive résumé.

Many people don't know this, but Keith kicked off his career as a model and was even signed to the prestigious Wilhelmina Agency. He was so focused on modeling that he moved to Los Angeles in 2013 with his father, Keith Sr., to pursue the career path full-time. However, his true calling was in acting.

Back in 2013, this rising star managed to score a role in the flick House Party: Tonight's the Night. But here's where things get really interesting—after jetting off to South Africa for the shoot, Keith was hit with a bolt of inspiration and decided to dive headfirst into the world of acting, and he decided to pursue his passion wholeheartedly.

Who is Keith Powers dating?

The talented actor was also once linked to actress Ryan Destiny. The duo were in a long-term relationship for four years until they sadly split. (Insert collective sad sigh). During their relationship, Keith had glowing things to tell People about their dynamic and chemistry.

"It is so important for our people to see healthy Black love. Whether it's a relationship, marriage, or even friendships," he said. "Black love gives us hope. When you see Black love flourish, it's powerful," Keith said in 2022.

Although we were sad to learn that the two were no longer, it appears that they remained good friends even after the split. Sources confirmed that to People, and Keith still has some stunning pictures of the two on his Instagram page. We have to say, though, that those two made an amazingly beautiful couple! Why do seemingly good things have to come to an end?

Before Ryan, Keith was linked to rapper Saweetie. The two reportedly dated from around 2010 to 2014.

Whether he is starring in a rom-com, or flexing his finely chiseled jaw on the runway, one this is for sure: Keith is an unstoppable force and we love to see it. We can't wait to see what else is in store for the super-talented actor.
