What Makes Daphne Joy So Special
Starting as a model, Daphne Joy has now become well-known as an actress for appearing on many television series and feature films. She is also an entrepreneur and has recently launched her own swimwear line. However, few know that she loves to host parties and has hosted major celebrity events in the past. She also modeled for charitable causes such as the annual Celebrity Catwalk, which raises awareness for abused cats and dogs. Growing up in the Philippines, she respects the culture and its values. Despite her immense popularity, she likes to stay low-key. She is a very good cook and loves Filipino food. She also loves to travel; however, her fear of heights restricts her vacation destinations and keeps her from enjoying rollercoaster rides or skydiving. Nevertheless, she dreams of overcoming her fear of heights by learning to fly a plane some day.
Beyond Fame
Daphne Joy is infamous for her dating history and has been linked to a number of celebrities throughout the years. One of her earliest hook-ups was with much older Finnish-Canadian businessman Peter J. Nygård, even though the details of their relationship are unknown. In 2011, she briefly dated American actor Tyrese Gibson. Soon after, she started dating rapper 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III. It was one of her longest relationships, which lasted for over one and half years. She even had a child with the rapper, named Sire Jackson, who was born in 2013. Their relationship took an unexpected turn when she accused him of domestic assault. He allegedly physically abused her, breaking into her Toluca Lake condo on June 23, 2013, and also destroyed property worth $7,100 before he left. Police charged him with one count of domestic violence and four counts of vandalism. The domestic violence charges were later dropped after he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor vandalism. Things have since then changed for better for the couple apparently; the rapper, who initially didn't even acknowledged having a child with her, recently promoted her swimsuit line on Twitter, calling her the mother of his baby and sparking rumors of them reuniting. In the meantime, Daphne, who dated singer Jason Derulo from November 2015 to May 2016, decided to break up with him on amicable terms. She also reportedly dated reality TV star Rob Kardashian for a short period of time in late 2013.
