How Did Bruno Mars and Girlfriend Jessica Caban Meet?

You'll Believe in Love at First Sight After Finding Out How Bruno Mars Met His Girlfriend

We hate to break your heart like this, but in case you haven't heard, Bruno Mars is taken. In fact, he's dating model Jessica Caban and they've been together since 2011. If this comes as news to you, it's probably because Bruno is notoriously private when it comes to his love life, and they rarely make public appearances together — unless we're talking about the Grammys. Bruno brought Jessica as his date this year, and he even gave her a sweet shout-out when he won record of the year. "My lady, Jessica. I love you baby," he said. "Thank you for being my rock and being on my side throughout this whole process."

So, how exactly did this romance come to be? Turns out, it was love at first sight for Bruno. According to Emily Herbert, the author of the Bruno Mars biography, Bruno and Jessica first met in her hometown of NYC. "While eating at the Co-op restaurant in New York's Hotel on Rivington, Bruno spotted a beautiful, vivacious woman chatting animatedly at a nearby table," Emily wrote in her book. "Bruno was not shy when it came to approaching women he found attractive. Within a very short time the two became an item." Jessica reportedly moved to LA to live with Bruno a year later, and the rest is history.
