Who is Malcolm-Jamal Warner’s ex-wife? Everything we know about his dating history.

Malcolm has never been married. But he’s been in not one, not two, but three pretty serious relationships with fellow actors.

Early in his career, Malcolm had a blossoming romance with the Family Matters star Michelle Thomas. On The Cosby Show, Michelle starred as Justine, Theo’s girlfriend, but they also had a blossoming romance offscreen. The couple lasted for 10 years before their relationship came to an abrupt end.

Sadly, in 1998, news outlets reported that Michelle had died of stomach cancer.

He started dating his former Cosby Show co-star Karen Malina White in 2000. After they broke up in 2007, he was single for a while. Later, he started a relationship with Watchmen star Regina King.

The two reportedly dated for two years before they parted ways in 2013.

“I believe the universe has a plan, and we probably wouldn’t have been ready years ago,” Regina said of her then-boyfriend in a 2012 interview with Parade. “We both had to do whatever we had to do to be ready for each other now.”

In a 2013 interview with Sister 2 Sister, Malcolm opened up about their split.

“Well, I mean, you try not to date in the spotlight,” he told the outlet (per WTLC FM). “We had been together for several years before people realized we were together.”

“So unfortunately our breakup got more coverage than our being together, and that kind of sucked ‘cause we spent so much time trying to keep it out of the public eye, and then the breakup was so much in the public eye,” the actor recalled. “All relationships have their share of obstacles, and you just try not to have yours plastered.”

Following his split from Regina, Malcolm vowed to take a hiatus from dating. His now-girlfriend is the first (semi) public relationship he’s been in since then.
