Berniece Julien is the ex-girlfriend of Bronx-born model and actor, Tyson Beckford. Julien’s former boyfriend is also known as the Ralph Lauren Polo model.

Beckford is often considered one of the most successful black male supermodels of all time. He achieved fame and huge contracts similar to the female models that had huge success in the 1990s parallel to the likes of Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, and Stephanie Seymour, among others.

So how was Julien’s life being a one-time girlfriend to a person of such profile? What led her to separate from Beckford? And why has she disappeared from the media? Know all these in the article below.

Julien and Beckford were mostly incognito throughout their relationship, marriage, and even the divorce. Some say they even had a low-key wedding sometime in 2017, though, there was little to no credence to that theory.

Much like Beckford’s other relationships, his union with Julien didn’t last long either. And while the former couple never discussed the reason behind their split, some claimed it had something to do with Beckford’s igniting relationship with the Australian model, Shanina Shaik.

Some, on the other hand, presume it might have been because of Tyson’s controlling boyfriend nature. Beckford, himself has confessed to being high-handed in a relationship. Once he explained he has a way of putting his foot in his mouth. The New Yorker also said he has no filter and often gets controlling with a partner.

Berniece’s ex even went so far as to take credit for Shanina’s success. He claimed he helped place her with the right people, cleaned her teeth, toned her body up. To make the matter worst, Beckford even got into a fight with Shaik’s then-boyfriend, DJ Ruckus, outside a Manhattan bar in 2016, according to Page Six.

Where Is Berniece Julien In The Present?

In recent times, there’s been a hunt surge regarding Julien’s name owing to the internet’s curiosity. Although the buzzes of interests keep surrounding her extensively, the former Ralph Lauren model remains reclusive to share her whereabouts or even allowing herself to get by the media. As mentioned, she presumably is living a spotlight-free life in her home country, back in the UK.

Meanwhile, What Is This Fuss About Berniece’s Ex, Tyson, And Kim Kardashian?

Julien’s former partner made headlines again in September 2021, and this time it involved the leading lady of the Kardashian clan, Kim, herself. It was back in 2018, when Kardashian and Wendy Williams, both had shaded the Motorcycle Riding model’s sexuality.

Kim had done so after, Beckford himself had called her fake, disinteresting, and all over social media. The second daughter of Chris Jenner hit back quickly responding that he might be gay, which is why he doesn’t care for it.

“Sis we all know why you don’t care for it,”

replied the former wife of Kanye West.

What’s interesting is the fact that Beckford took three years to work up the nerve to address. And he responded with a photo and caption declaring his support for the LGBTQ community.

“I support LGBTQ, even though I’m not Gay. It’s just the Human thing to do,”

wrote the former boyfriend of Berniece Julien. Beckford says that some people still try to call him gay on the internet since that internet feud.

“Sometimes I’ll get a couple of suckers on Instagram who will try to say like, ‘Oh, yeah. You gay,’” he reported to VladTV.

“Then I’m like ‘Where is this coming from?’ You heard it from that dumbass? And then you heard it from that stupid b**ch Wendy Williams? Man, f*** all of them! ”

the chocolate-skinned model said in reference to Kardashian West and Wendy Williams. He added he has never been gay, nor does he have a problem with gay people.
