Bruno Mars may be one of the most prominent artists in the business, but what does his love life look like? Who’s he dating?
Since 2011, Mars has been dating model Jessica Caban. Born and raised in Spanish Harlem, Caban rose to fame in 2002 after being handpicked by Jennifer Lopez to represent her line “J-Lo”. She was also a contestant on Model Latina, and was named the show’s first-ever champion in 2008, which led to a $10,000 contract with Q management.
Caban starred in Mars parody video for ‘Whatta Man’. In 2010, she made her film debut in the movie Are You Great for Sex?, which has since been renamed Shades of Love. Her performance earned her a Best Acting Performance in a Feature Film Award at the 2010 Boston International Film Festival and the Festival Award for Best Actress at the 2010 Hoboken Film Festival.
According to Latina.com, the model moved in to Mars’ $3 million LA mansion in the summer of 2012, after about a year of dating.
In 2014, Caban made headlines after appearing to frown when Bruno Mars dedicated his Grammy win to his late mother, who passed away in 2013 from a brain aneurysm. During his acceptance speech for Best Pop Vocal Album, Mars told Caban he loved her and then went on to dedicate the award to his mom. When the camera cut to Caban in that moment, she was frowning. Caban’s frowning face caught the attention of the media, and became viral in a matter of minutes.
Before Caban, Mars was linked to a few different women. In 2009, he dated Chanel Malvar, before being linked to Rita Ora, a British singer and actress, in early 2011. At tonight’s Grammys, Bruno Mars is set to perform for what will be the fifth time at the event. He has also been nominated for this year’s Album of the Year category for his work on Adele’s 25.
