Canyon Grey Felton’s Parents Love Life: Did they ever get Married?

Felton and Leigh never got married. The now-ex-pair began dating back in 2011. Soon after they began their lovey-dovey, the ‘Birthday Sex’ singer impregnated Leigh.

They led a happy relationship for a few months but it couldn’t last long and they separated when Rachel was pregnant with their child. Later on, the baby’s mama opened up that the artist wasn’t too supportive which led them to end their relationship short. She said,

“The guy was not supportive at all. We ended up breaking it off before I even gave birth.”

In the meantime, the businesswoman also claimed her ex-beau Jeremih to be a deadbeat but the claim was later turned out to be a hoax.

On the other hand, Jeremih said there are a lot of people who don’t know that he has a son because his ex-partner didn’t allow him to visit the child,

“A lot of people don’t know I have a 2-year-old son. His mom wasn’t allowing me to see him, and it was messing with me.”
