J. Cole Secretly Marries Longtime Girlfriend

J. Cole and Melissa Heholt

J. Cole is a married man.

In an interview for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the Roc Nation rapper was forced to reveal the news.

Director Ryan Coogler surprised viewers when he accidentally asked Cole, "How did getting married change you?" Apparently, he didn't know the marriage hadn't been publicly announced.

Caught off guard, Cole responded: "Oh, what is that?!" Awkwardly laughing it off, he added: "That was like one thing to not do."

"Nobody knows?" asked Coogler, to which Cole replied, "Well, they know now."

His wife is longtime girlfriend Melissa Heholt, whom he met while both were attending St. John's University in Queens, New York.
