Who is Jena Frumes?
Born on 21 September 1993, in Union Beach, New Jersey, under the earth sign of Virgo, Jena Frumes is a 25-year-old American model, actress, influencer, social media personality and entrepreneur. She is best known for her omnipresence on social media, with the highlight being her Instagram account, which will soon reach the four million-followers milestone. Due to her mixed heritage and an athletic body, Jena has made a career out of modeling for both independent and designer brands. Before signing with a talent agency, Jena had to get permission from her parents, which was the first in the long line of “battles” she had to go through in her career. After making her acting debut in “Wild N’ Out”, Jena became even more popular, which lead to high-profile relationships with soccer star Jesse Lingard and actor Nick Cannon. Her social media prowess has resulted in equal amounts of success and controversy for this multi-talented young lady.
Early Life and Education: Growing Up in New Jersey
Jena was raised with a younger sister by their parents in one of the most popular tourist spots in New Jersey. There is no information about the names of her parents and sister, which is a testament to how much Jena values privacy, since as her career progressed, she was being incessantly “bombarded” with inquiries about her personal life. Despite the annoyance, Frumes maintained her composure and politely refused to answer any and all questions regarding such matters. A prominent athlete and already attractive, young Jena pondered about modeling after several of her friends commented that she would be ideal for the job, given today’s trends. Initially she faced resistance from her parents, who deemed that this career wouldn’t provide a reliable stream of income. However, Jena refused to give up on her dreams, and eventually gained the support of her family. In 2011, she matriculated from an unspecified high school in her hometown, then enrolled at North Carolina Central University in Durham – this move was a backup plan for Jena, in case she didn’t find success as a model. She dropped out during her freshman year.
A Self-Made Instagram Model
After matriculating from high school, Jena already knew that she wanted to be a model. She wasted no time and was constantly on the lookout for new opportunities. Initially, she depended on talent agencies doing all the promotional work, but she was dissatisfied with the results. With a plan in mind, she cut ties with her representatives and focused solely on social media. Realizing that online promotion was the modeling tool of the future, Jena started making connections on her own. Her Instagram profile proved to be the vessel of her success, as she attracted more than 10,000 followers in just one month, which resulted in her appearing in the music video for “Ah Yeah” by popular R&B singer Jacob Latimore. People were interested in her creative photoshoots, provocative poses and uncanny sense of fashion. Shortly after becoming an influencer, she began socializing with notable celebrities, one of whom was Nick Cannon, the accomplished rapper/actor. In 2015, Jena made her acting debut with an appearance on “Wild N’ Out”, a popular MTV reality show created by Cannon.
Jena’s two biggest sponsors are Fashion Nova and Pretty Little Things, both globally renowned fashion brands. Using her almost innate skills to look fabulous in front of the camera, Frumes proved to be one of the most important advertisers for these two brands, which resulted in her becoming a global superstar, especially when it comes to teenage audiences. In addition, Jena was also the face of several jewelry brands and other accessory-oriented ventures.
Turbulent Relationship With Her Manager
As many influencers find it hard to be noticed, it’s essential for any social media personality to have a capable manager, and Jena had the luck to meet Draya Michelle early in her career. This partnership directly resulted in Frumes’ superstardom, as she proved to be more than capable of captivating fans and brands from all over the world. However, despite the fact that Jena was more successful than ever, she and Michelle began disagreeing on key matters relating to the young star’s career. According to Jena, her manager began acting unprofessionally, which we found out in a series of Instagram posts. Fortunately for her, it turns out that hiring new representatives ended up being a smart choice.

Acting Career: Wild N’ Out, Mango & Guava and Music Videos
Ever since she became a model, Jena was honest about her intention to try her hand at acting. Her first experience was in “Wild N’ Out”, alongside Nick Cannon, her would-be boyfriend. Then she assumed roles in music videos for “I Think of You” by Jeremih and “Light It Up” by Marshmello, Tyga and Chris Brown. However, her most significant acting credit was the lead role in “Mango & Guava”, a sports-themed crime drama with romantic segments.
Personal Life: Does Jena Frumes Have a Boyfriend?
There is no current information about Jena’s love life. In recent months, her public appearances included just friends and family members, without any sightings of a potential partner. On multiple occasions, she stated that her career is the number one thing in her life, and that she doesn’t want to jeopardize it, no matter how charming a man can be. However, despite not being the subject of many headlines in 2019, Jena has quite a track record when it comes to being involved with other celebrities.
Notable Exes: Jesse Lingard. Antonio Brown and Nick Cannon
Becoming famous legitimately aided Jena in developing her career, but it also helped her meet several men who would end up having an important role in her life. The first of them was Antonio Brown, a superstar wide receiver for the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League (NFL). They broke up in June 2017, with the reason being Antonio’s long-time girlfriend – he was ready to abandon her and their three children, but Jena refused to be in the middle of such a situation. Shortly afterwards, she was seen alongside English soccer player Jesse Lingard, currently playing for Manchester United. She met him in 2016, while he was preparing for the new season in Los Angeles. They exchanged numbers and grew closer as time went on, and even though Jesse’s season lasted from August to May, they still made it work. She even flew to Manchester to throw him a surprise birthday party on 5 December 2017, and afterwards went on a romantic weekend to Barcelona. In 2018, they broke up because of Jesse’s bouts of infidelity. A few weeks later, she was seen alongside former colleague and actor Nick Cannon, who also happens to be the ex-husband of Mariah Carey.
