While Bruno Mars’s music career has skyrocketed, his longtime girlfriend Jessica Caban has remained a constant in his life. Emily Herbert, who wrote a book about Bruno Mars, says that the “Leave the Door Open” singer met Caban at a New York City hotel restaurant on the Lower East Side.
The couple has been together for more than ten years, but they don’t talk much about their relationship in public. They also don’t post about each other on social media, except for the occasional family photo or birthday post. But in October 2022, on the couple’s 10-year anniversary, Caban gave a rare glimpse into their private life.
