Kennedy was rumored to be dating a co-star from Black Sails back in 2014, Luke Arnold, as they were spotted together in many of the dating spots in Vancouver. Luke was thought of as Jessica Parker Kennedy’s boyfriend, but he claimed to be single.
But nothing came out of it as the rumor died down after some time. The relation which might have started silently probably ended in silence, and nobody ever knew if it was real or not. But recently, Jessica has claimed that she is single and is looking to settle down.
Jessica is Single and looking to Mingle
So far, Jessica Parker Kennedy has had no husband or boyfriend, but she is currently looking for a love interest. She has even spoken about her ideal type of partner as well,
“I’m usually attracted to more interesting types of men. I have no desire to be with a cookie-cutter Ken doll…I like when a man has a positive self-image, no matter what he looks like. I’m not into rock-hard abs…I love when a man doesn’t take himself too seriously. He has to have a sense of humor.”
So, if you think you will fit into her criteria, then maybe you should approach her because there is no league for her, and she seems very genuine as well. Any man who gets to be her partner is going to be lucky as a four-leaved clover. While we may say ‘partner,’ she doesn’t seem to be gay, so to all the girls with a crush on her, we are sorry, but let’s hope she finds her Mr.Perfect soon.
