When she was nine years old, her mother took her shopping in Long Beach, California – Jennifer, who says she’s always been talkative, was chatting away. A woman approached her mother and told her that her daughter ‘has got so much personality and why don’t you get her into acting?’ The woman was Carla Alexander, a talent agent, who became, and still is Jennifer’s manager.
Jennifer started modeling for commercials and Disney Movie Surfers. and that was her first step and the first rung on her ladder of success. She still writes down her dreams, and visualizes herself doing them.

Following in Omarion’s footsteps in 2005 came the American singer Lil’ Fizz, also from the band B2K; likewise their relationship survived only a year. In 2007 Jennifer had a short, but intense 7-month relationship with Marques Houston, the American singer.

Finally, at the age of 22, Jennifer met the 28-year old American basketball player Earl Watson.

It seems that they had a rather volatile relationship, as according to an ABC News report in August 2010, the couple had gone through a break-up after Jennifer had attacked Earl when he had confronted her about some dubious messages on her ‘phone, and had taken it away. Jennifer slapped and bit him, drawing blood, and tried to whack him with an iron; Earl filed for divorce the next day. A little while later they got back together again, and tried to patch things up. Sadly their marriage didn’t endure, and it was finally over when Jennifer and Earl divorced on 15th November, 2010, just a year and a half after their wedding bells rang) The divorce itself created a lot of gossip about Jennifer trying to extract excessive alimony from Earl, claiming that her career was ‘tanked’ and she hadn’t earned much money since “My Wife and Kids”.
It would appear that both Earl and Jennifer are currently single.
