Is J. Cole Still Married To Melissa Heholt and How Many Kids Do They Have Together?

Who is J. Cole’s wife Melissa Heholt and when did they get married? Rapper J. Cole and his wife are very private about their love life.

Everyone who knows J. Cole has a clue about the rapper’s love for basketball. He was in Ottawa to see his Shooting Stars compete for a title.

Just a few months ago, J. Cole was in Canada where he was playing basketball for the Scarborough Shooting Stars of the Canadian Elite Basketball League. Cole got the gig through Drake, and for the most part, he was simply a role player off of the bench. Cole definitely came through with some highlights, but he eventually had to leave the team so that he could go on tour.

The Shooting Stars went on to have a wonderful season, and in the end, they made it all the way to the Championship game in Ottawa, where they got to play against the Hamilton Honey Badgers.

As a way to show his support, Cole made his way to Ottawa over the weekend where he could be seen sitting courtside at the match. Cole wore his Scarborough gear and could even be seen partaking in huddles even though he didn’t play any minutes. It was a great sight to see, and it’s clear the team had an impact on Cole.

If J. Cole is not busy playing basketball or recording music, he enjoys a cosy homelife with his wife and kids.
