Who is Jasmine Jobson dating?

Jasmine is currently in a relationship with her Top Boy co-star Kadeem Ramsay.

The pair went public with their romance back in October 2023 when Jasmine shared a photo of the couple sharing a kiss.

They first sparked relationship rumours in July of that year when they were pictured looking pretty cosy at an event in London.

Then in October a source told The Sun: “Jasmine and Kadeem have been quietly dating for some time and are often seen out and about together.

“Since the series ended they have become more relaxed and Jasmine has started giving glimpses of her love life on social media.”

Jasmine has since turned the comments off the relationship announcement post and urged her followers to “be kind”.

She shared a story which read: “I’m an ACTRESS. My job is to play dress-up and pretend, take a script and make it palatable for your eyes to watch.

“I am also a HUMAN BEING, LIKE ALL OF YOU, just living my life. Be kind.”
