Boyfriend / Spouse

Persia White has dated –

  1. Saul Williams (2003-2009) – Persia started dating singer Saul Williams in 2003. They had first met when he made a guest appearance in her TV series, Girlfriends. They had a steady relationship and Saul particularly looked after her daughter Mecca, who was born in 1995 from her previous relationship with an unidentified man. So, it wasn’t a surprise when they got engaged in February 2008. However, it certainly was a surprise when she took to her Myspace account in January 2009 to announce that they have decided to go separate ways after being together for nearly 6 years.
  2. Joseph Morgan (2011-Present) – Persia first met actor Joseph Morgan in 2011 while they were working in the third season of the series, The Vampire Diaries. Joseph was one of the main characters and Persia had joined for a guest recurring role. The speculation about them being together had been there for some months before they confirmed their relationship. The first confirmation of sorts came in August 2012 after they walked the red carpet together at the Monte Carlo Film Festival. Soon after, they were spotted holding hands during an outing. However, the confirmation didn’t come until the eve of 2014 New Year as Morgan took to his Twitter account to announce their courtship. Just some days before his 33rd birthday in May 2014, he proposed Persia. About two months later, they got married in a romantic wedding ceremony held in Jamaica.
