Learn the untold truth about Devon and Jesse, including who they are and the nitty-gritty details of the relationship between the internet’s favorite couple over the last few years.
Devon and Jesse are a Celebrity Couple
For a very long time, most people considered Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to be the ultimate celebrity couple. The details of their relationship were a very hot topic for a few years to the point where the ex-power celebrity couple was even given the moniker Brangelina. As stated, they were Hollywood’s picture-perfect couple whose status was as undoubted as it was epic.
Devon and Jesse, most likely not on the same level as Brangelina, have set the tone for their own version of a prolific love story that will remain a subject of conversation for netizens for quite a while. Their relationship has held the public’s attention for a while.
This is because of their status as a celebrity couple and the ups and downs the couple has experienced in their relatively lengthy relationship. The celebrity aspect revolves around the part that both Devon and Jesse are successful in their career pursuits and are equally as well known for their relationship.
Devon Lee Carlson is a Model and an Instagram Star
Devon is famous for her Vlogging videos, Instagram posts, and modeling career. Her exceptionally marketable brand, Wildflower Cases, equally sets her apart as a really talented designer. Born to Dave and Michelle Carson in California, United States, Devon Launched Wildflower Cases with her mother, Michelle, and her sister Sydney in 2012.
Their unique entrepreneurial journey began after a chance meeting with famous pop star Miley Cyrus who saw the sisters’ request for a selfie. Myley obliged their request but was also quite impressed by the design of their mobile phone cases and promptly indicated her interest in purchasing one.
She even helped them with the initial marketing by posting the case on Twitter which saw an increase in demand for the exquisitely designed cases. These days, other celebrities like Lana Del Rey and Bella Hadid have further increased the profile of Wildflower Cases by using customized designs of the company’s cases.
Devon’s entrepreneurial fame set the tone for other career endeavors, including one as a model, for brands like Luis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, and Realisation Par, and one that involves social media platforms like TikTok (over 817.2k followers combined) and Instagram, where she has over 2.29 million followers combined.
Jesse James Rutherford is a Songwriter, Singer, and Actor
On the other hand, Jesse Rutherford, Devon’s boyfriend, is the lead singer of the alternative rock band, The Neighborhood. Jesse, who was born in Newbury Park, California, began his showbiz career as a child actor in the popular soap opera The Young and The Restless before making his debut in the romantic comedy Life or Something Like That in 2002.
Despite having a number of movie credits, Jesse is best recognized as the lead singer of The Neighborhood, the rock band that he co-founded in 2011. They released their first mix tape, Truth Hurts, Truth Heals, in 2011 before dropping their first EP, I’m Sorry, in 2012. Since it was founded, The Neighbourhood has released more than 5 studio albums and several EPs.
With their respective careers at their peak, it’s no wonder that their relationship has attracted so much interest from the public, comparable to the level of interest attracted by the likes of Brangelina and The Smiths (Will and Jaden), amongst others.
Devon and Jesse Met at a Mall
Devon and Jesse’s story began at a mall when they were both in high school. That essentially indicates that they were both still teenagers when they met for the first time at the mall. One thing led to another, and they became a couple.
The finer details of their relationship remain restricted to the fact that they both grew up in the same town. It must be noted, however, that the trajectory of their relationship did not follow the same route as most people do. Devon concedes the fact that they did not begin speaking to each other until they had both graduated from high school.
Despite their grueling schedules, with Jesse working hard to establish his band, The Neighborhood, and Devon planting the seeds of her now highly valuable brand, Wildflower Cases, the couple still found time to enjoy each other’s company.
The Couple Broke up Briefly
The first stretch of their relationship was not as smooth sailing as Devon or Jesse would have liked, and they subsequently broke up. It is not known exactly when the breakup happened, but the first sign most of their fans noticed was the fact that there was a drastic reduction in their public appearances together.
Next, the couple stopped posting pictures of each other on their various handles. The reason for their initial breakup has not been revealed to the public, and there is no knowledge of how long the breakup lasted.
Devon and Jesse Reunited in 2015
As previously stated, it is difficult to estimate how long Devon and Jesse were broken up initially, but one indisputable fact remains that they reunited in 2015. At this point, we feel it is only right to let you know that while they were broken up, Jesse dated Anabel Englund, a singer, songwriter, record producer, and DJ from Southern California.
The relationship was said to have lasted for more than a couple of years, and the nature of their relationship was believed to be on and off during that time until they ultimately parted ways in 2014. A year later, Devon was back in the picture as Jesse’s girlfriend.
Did Devon And Jesse Break Up, or Are They Still Together?
At the moment, it would appear that Devon and Jesse have broken up for the second, and most likely, the final time. Before we get into that, recall that Devon and Jesse reunited in 2015, and their relationship reached its peak when GQ crowned them 2019’s most 2019 Couple.
In 2021, however, fans started speculating that the couple had gone their separate ways for the final time when they noticed some changes in their respective social media activities. Devon had adjusted her TikTok bio to reflect the maxim No Bio Yet as opposed to the previous precept that read Jesse’s Girlfriend. She also deleted most of the pictures that had her and The Neighborhood star together.
For his part, Jesse deleted his Instagram posts related to him and the model. Their alleged breakup hit so many fans hard, while many claimed they had anticipated the outcome from their social media activities. As of this writing, Devon and Jesse are still together and even recently bought a house. They have also resumed posting pictures of each other on their Instagram handles.
