Is Jaleel White Married Now After Facing Issues With Girlfriend? Hiding Wife From The Spotlight?
The life that celebrities live is always different from what we see on the screen. We will get to know their personal life only when they will allow us to have a look at it. But when they tend to keep privacy in their day-to-day life, we can’t peek what’s going on their life.
Dancing With The Stars' alum Jaleel White is one of the celebrities who once revealed everything about his relationship but is now maintaining huge privacy on his love life.
After facing issues with ex-girlfriend Bridget Hardy, the former Family Matters star hasn’t opened up about his personal life. Some of his fans assume him to be married while others believe him to be single and parenting his daughter alone.
Well, the latter assumption may be a false, as the actor has been witnessed with a lady who appears to be his new love interest. On August 2013, a paparazzi shared a video on YouTube where Jaleel was spotted greeting fans while celebrating a family birthday.

In the video, a mysterious lady was spotted with the little girls, who was assumed to be his wife by some viewers. Is she his new love interest or his secret wife whom he is hiding from the spotlight? Well, until Jaleel reveals it out, the answer remains a mystery.
Jaleel Accused of Assault:
Jaleel had a very unsound relationship with Bridget Hardy. Although the exact time duration of their relationship remains private with the duo, some sources suggest they began their relationship in 2006 and split some time between 2009 and 2011. Jaleel and Bridget share a daughter together, Samaya White (born 2009).

Back in March 2012, while Jaleel was in a relationship with Hardy, he was accused of cheating and domestic violence. Hardy claimed that Jaleel is an abusive cheater. In an exclusive interview with Star Magazine, Hardy said-
“Verbally and emotionally, he’s abusive. He told me I’m not working; I have no money; I’m white trash. None of it was true.”
“He hit me across the chest area, He pushed me into the toilet, and it broke. Water went everywhere, through the walls and even to the kitchen downstairs.”
However, Jaleel denied the abuse in a meeting with Entertainment Tonight in April 2012 stating there was zero domestic violence. He even stated that Hardy filed the suit as a ‘ploy’ to receive the money from him. He said-
“I’ve never been arrested in my life, I have no history of violence. I’ve never even had a cop show up to my home.”
“And the ploy is, “Alright, I know he doesn’t want trouble so he’ll pay more.” And a dollar amount was pushed across the table and child support, monthly child support. Pay this, and everything goes away.”

Conversely, Hardy said that Jaleel offered him money to leave their daughter with him.
“He texted me and offered me $200,000 to leave our daughter with him and have me go and start my own family,” she tells Star. “He basically tried to pay me off. I went home screaming and said, ‘We’re done.’”
Well, Jaleel seems to have already moved on from his past relationship. Good for him and his daughter!
In the year 2006, there were rumors about his death by suicide all over the tabloids. However, this was all part of either a publicity stunt for a project or just a misunderstanding.
Now, it seems that Jaleel is happily living with his daughter and working hard to incline his career. His prolific career has allowed him to enjoy a splendid net worth of $10 million. Some of his recent acting credits include his performance in Atlanta (2016), Celebrity Family Feud (2016), and Survivor’s Remorse (2016).
