Rapper and songwriter J Cole has been having an incredible year; his latest album 2014 forest hills drive just went platinum and he has sold out shows all over the world including the legendary Madison Square Garden. However, in a surprising turn of events, Cole has run into a little bit of misfortune in his love life. Black Sports Online reports that the 30 year old rapper and his long term girlfriend, Melissa Heholt, are no longer a couple.

This news came as surprising because earlier this year Melissa was spotted shopping for wedding dresses shortly after Cole announced that they were engaged.

The same source reports that this was Cole’s third marriage proposal; all three of his proposals were accepted but for some reason they were never able to progress to arranging nuptials, including the third time.

There’s the theory that people always release incredible music soon after a breakup; for example, Kanye released ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ soon after he broke off his engagement, and Future has released 3 mixtapes and an album that are all pure fire this year, coinciding with his separation from ex-fiancee Ciara. Will the same happen to Cole, if the news turn out to be true? We can never tell. We can only wish him the best.
