Daphne Joy has seen both good times and bad in her life. After a domestic abuse charge and a restraining order against ex-boyfriend 50 Cent, Joy is focusing on her modeling and acting career. She has to balance her hectic work schedule along with the responsibility of raising her son, Sire Jackson.

Though Daphne Joy has been dismissed as becoming famous by association, this is certainly not true. Joy was a pretty famous swimsuit model and rising actress before dating rapper 50 Cent, which many claim put her on the map. Daphne Joy’s birthday is today (February 8) and to celebrate, we have found the best and hottest pics from her Instagram account! Here are the details we have on Daphne Joy’s wiki.

Achieving Fame as a Model

Joy was born on February 8, 1987 in Olongapo, Philippines. She turned 30 years old today, and has modeled extensively in the United States. She achieved fame primarily as a swimsuit model, thanks to her amazing figure and gorgeous looks. In February 2011, Daphne Joy’s  boyfriend was 50 Cent, and the two were regularly featured in tabloids until they broke up in 2012. Together, they have a son who was born on September 1, 2012. Daphne Joy’s son is named Sire Jackson and is the apple of his mother’s eye.

A Dangerous Liaison

Though the relationship between Joy and 50 Cent started off well, it wasn’t long before it went sour and an altercation made headlines. 50 Cent, already famous for his hot temper, reportedly began taking apart her bedroom, kicked down the door, and even kicked her. Joy consequently filed a domestic dispute case against 50 Cent, which included a restraining order. The charges were dropped (with the stipulation that 50 Cent saw a counsellor) and he paid Joy over $7000 in compensation. At the time, 50 Cent did not acknowledge that Sire was in fact, his son.

Throwing Caution to the Wind

Singer Jason Derulo filled the void in Joy’s life a few years later. The two dated from November 2015 until May 2016. During this time, the couple was spotted at many hot spots and were not afraid to show their love for one another. One one famous occasion, they were spotted in Mexico enjoying the sun by the beach. The paparazzi had a field day, catching the couple kissing, hugging, and not holding anything back on the PDA!
