However, 2014 was the last year Marques tweeted about celebrating his 6th anniversary with his girlfriend, Marlena Campbell. The tweet read:
"Happy Anniversary to my love! @worldofmarlenac#6yearsintoforever #Surprise I love you..."
After that neither of them gushed about their relationship nor did they make any public appearances together. Nothing concerning their dating status got aired out, and that was when the fan's curiosity started to kick in; however, there wasn't anybody to address the matter.
The duo was indeed loved by their fans who even wished to see them getting married together.

However, amidst no news of their relationship falling apart or still going on smooth, Marques' girlfriend Marlena threw a bummer, as she introduced her fans to her new boyfriend.
Back in October 2017, Marlena posted a picture, with a guy named Jared Overton and called him her boyfriend. Nobody or at least Marques' fans didn't see that coming! When Marques attended his friend's wedding in September of 2018, Marlena was a no-show; which further fueled the break-up rumors between the two.

Furthermore, before dating Marlena, Marques reportedly got engaged to actress Jennifer Freeman to make her his wife in the year 2007. But unfortunately, they broke up the following year in 2008 without disclosing the cause.
Also, Marques, who cleared out about not being a gay by replying to a tweet, was rumored to be dating Jamila Chilombo in the past. Jamila, who is better recognized by her stage name Mila J, is a sister of R&B songstress Jhene Aiko.
Additionally, Marques too was rumored to have dated Jay-z's wife, Beyonce back in the day, but the rapper came forth addressing the matter in an interview, where he cleared that he was just a good friend with Beyonce.

Four months after opening about their relationship, on 5th February 2019, Marques and his teenage girlfriend got engaged. Both, he and his fiancee took to their respective Instagram to share the news with their fans.
