But during an interview with The Sun Newspaper in 2015, Jameela revealed how she separated with her boyfriend whom she described as her “true love.”
She provided no more information about her love but stated that she separated in good terms and her separation was amicable. Regarding the break-up and plans of another relationship, she said-
“We parted with all the love in the world. I’m going travelling all over the place, so I don’t have time for a boyfriend. It’s sort of like Eat, Pray, Love but more like Eat, Eat, Love. I want to go while I’ve no responsibilities.”
Was she mentioning the mystery man from the Primrose Hill as her “true love” or was there someone else whom she was dating? It remains a mystery.
Moreover, Jameela revealed about falling in love with a married man, while discussing her friend who also happened to go through the same. In her Cosmo column, she wrote-
“I've almost been there myself, A few years ago I fell in love with a man before realising he was married. First he told me they were separates. Then he told me that they weren't separated - but that they hated each other and slept in different beds. He said she was sleeping with her ex and was only using him for his money. My heart went out to this poor man. He was being bled dry by his evil wife who had clearly tricked him into marriage.”
However, Jameela refused to sleep with him when he was still someone else’s husband. According to her, he is happily married to his wife along with their children.
But after her mild heartbreak from her ex-lover, it is just recently that the TV presenter is seen to have found love in the musician James Blake. It was in May 2016, that the singer had spilled the bean to their tie to The Guardian saying that he was dating a British comedy writer and actor.

Keeping their entire love life under the wraps, it was only when their social media post that confirmed that James was indeed dating Jameela.
Jameela has been dating the Grammy Award Nominee for more than three years now, and their relationship has been going stronger than ever before. James had been a huge support in her life, and the surprising thing is that she has helped him equally during his dark days.
