Beyond Fame

Jaclyn has often spoken out against cyberbullying. In December 2015, she posted a video called ‘Trying to make a change’ in which she urged people to care for each other’s feelings and to think a couple of times before posting anything hateful. The comments, content, and language that people use to abuse each other are also a form of cyberbullying. She encourages her fans to stop all the hateful negativity and put the energy to much better use and not forget that we all are human.

Behind the Curtains

Jaclyn is a family person and loves spending time with her family, especially with her nephew and niece. She is a big movie buff and is a huge fan of Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. While she is working, she likes to listen to songs by Coldplay. She is very fond of dogs and describes herself as a dog person. Her childhood was rough since her father was suffering from a medical condition and had been in an accident. Her parents had a bad divorce in 2012, and Jaclyn has since been estranged from her father. She is close to her mother who was her manager in the past.

Jaclyn was married to Jon Hill from 2009 to 2018. She started dating Farnum Grindtime. In 2022, the couple got engaged. They exchanged wedding vows in April 2023.

Controversies and Scandals

In 2019, Jaclyn launched a range of nude “So Rich Lipstick” under the banner of her eponymous brand (Jaclyn Cosmetics). While the lipsticks aroused some suspicion due to the lack of reviews, and discrepancies regarding the color shades, along with a host of other issues, they sold out on day one. However, things didn’t stay well for long as customers soon started to complain about the substandard quality of lipsticks. Some even reported getting serious allergic reactions after using the product. Initially, Jaclyn refuted the complaints but as the backlash grew, she posted an apology video on her channel. This, however, resulted in more criticism directed toward her.

Following the heavy backlash, Jaclyn was forced to temporarily shut down her Instagram and Twitter accounts. In 2021, she launched new cosmetic products which included a fresh new range of highlighters and blush.
