Girlfriend Turned Wife: Married To a Mysterious Women:
Charlamagne is reportedly married to Jessica Gadsen. though there is no news about his alleged wife. He is said to be married to his girlfriend of sixteen years. In an interview with Xo Nicole, in October last year, Charlamagne revealed that his 7-Year-Old Daughter convinced him to tie the knot with his high school love.
“You have to show your kids love. That’s one of the reasons why I wanted to get married. Me and the mother of my kids have been together since high school. When you have your seven-year-old daughter asking why you and mommy don’t have the same last name, that affects you as a man. It made me think, ‘Well, why don’t we? What’s stopping me from taking that next step?’”
Above all, Charlamagne has once mentioned about his wife on Twitter. Bringing an end to his personal life speculations, he mentioned how happy he was that he had a wife at home.
"When you drunk Chris Brown "Loyal" really the realest song ever. That's why I'm happy I got a wife. ????????????????????????????????"

He has kept his wife and children off the social media. He believes that it is absurd to raise kids through social networking sites and posting the picture related to the kids is insane and due to which social media is not involved in the growing phase of his children, as in his statement he said;
“First of all, I’m not raising my kids via social media. I never felt like that was a place for my family to be. I don’t knock anyone who does it, but I don’t want my family on Facebook or Twitter. That’s something I chose not to do.”
However, his married life has constantly made the news despite the radio presenter's preference to maintain a low-key private life. The television personality faced a shocking rape allegation involving his wife. After an old interview of the star resurfaced on television where the star is found accepting he raped his wife, the radio star soon cleared the air on The Breakfast Club on July 2018.
Calling his wife while on the show, Charlamagne cleared the rumor with a phone-call. After asking his wife if he raped her the first time they had sex together, his wife's reply cleared all the false accusations.
"That’s not what happened, we both know what happened and I was not passed out. I was very coherent, like enough for me to lift off my hips."
However, this hasn't been the only controversy he has faced regarding his personal life. The news of Charlamagne being gay also surfaced a lot in the social media as Charlamagne has posted a video of him dancing on Rihanna song with a rather awkward move. And right after that, the video went viral, and many people claimed him to be gay.
However, many of his fans supported and argued that he is straight by sexuality as he was only having fun dancing to Rihanna songs and Charlamagne also did not bother to clear the rumors as it was totally fake news. And having had a lovely family the gay news has no ground to stand.
