Rapper Logic and Wife Jessica Andrea Split

It appears to be over for Logic and Jessica Andrea. The rapper, 28, and the “Medicine” singer, 25, have separated after two years of marriage, Us Weekly has learned.

Everything appeared to be fine between the duo, who tied the knot in October 2015, at the 2018 Grammy awards back in January. The pair were all smiles on the red carpet, and Andrea captioned a photo from the event “back at it again with my #1💕.”

Logic, whose real name is Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, shared a photo from the Clive Davis party the night before with his “Grammy Family,” which included Andrea. He performed his hit “1-800-273-8255” with Alessia Cara and Khalid during the ceremony.

Andrea also posted a sweet message for her husband that month for his 28th birthday. “Happy birthday to my muffin @logic 💕 I can’t believe you are 28! 🤯YOU are magnificent and ONE in a million,” she wrote on January 22. “I’m grateful to be a part of your journey, 28 is going to be the BEST year yet for you!!! *fist pumps* ALSO, you get hotter & hotter everyday!!! just make sure you keep moisturizing your skin boo boo! I love you, cherish you, and just know you are only 2 more years till 30! Hehe!❤❤❤ I love you muffin!!!!!!! now let’s celebrate!!!!”

While it’s unclear when they split, fans recently noticed that Andrea unfollowed the “Take It Back” rapper on Instagram. She also shared a cryptic quote with fans on March 9.

“But the most beautiful things in life are not just things. They’re people, and places, memories and pictures. They’re feelings and moments and miles and laughter,” the quote read. She captioned the post, “travel the world. run through Times Square at 3am. scream one direction so loud in your car that everyone on the sidewalk can hear your emotions. laugh so hard that you literally feel like you can’t breathe. eat oreos for breakfast. make other people feel so alive when you’re around. the world is yours and make all the memories you can…because being alive & happy is a gift we all deserve ♥️.”

‘Moonlight’ Star Mahershala Ali Used to Be a Rapper!

A surprising switch! Before Oscar winner Mahershala Ali’s acting career took off, he was a well-known Bay Area rapper who went by the stage name Prince Ali.

According to Ali’s iTunes biography, after completing his graduate program at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, he founded his own imprint, Eye5 Recordings, in 2006. He dropped his first mixtape, Corner Ensemble, the same year, which caught the attention of a larger San Francisco-based record label. By 2007, he released his first album, Curb Side Service, including tracks “The Path” and “The Majors.”

Shortly after, the now 46-year-old started nabbing major movies roles in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Hunger Games – Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2. He has also starred in two hit Netflix series, House of Cards (as Remy Danton) and Luke Cage (as Cottonmouth Stokes).

This year, the multi-talented Ali earned major recognition for his portrayal of sympathetic Miami drug dealer, Juan, in Moonlight. He won the Academy Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role, and the film took home Best Picture after the massive, historic fiasco. He also became the first Muslim actor to win an Academy Award.

The new dad (he welcomed daughter, Bari, with his wife, Amatus Sami-Karim, just days before the Oscars) explained to GQ how his passion for hip-hop and acting intersect. “I love hip-hop. It’s such an appendage for me,” he said last year. “It’s something that’s always shaped my experience out in the world. I always make mixtapes for every character that I’m playing. Sonically, that character has a soundtrack.”
