In the late 1990s, pop music was not the same without Jewel’s utterly explosive presence. In spite of the fact that she reached the pinnacle of her professional success during the period in which her popularity was at its highest, the singer-songwriter has been able to sustain a successful and impressive career in the years since then.
Fans of Jewel have gained a great deal of knowledge about her childhood problems, including being unhoused and having horrible encounters with sexual harassment, throughout the course of the years that have passed since she exploded onto the music world with her album Pieces of You.
Many of her admirers, after seeing these intimate peeks into her life, have been left with the hope that the musician will have a happy ending. Additionally, her relationship with rodeo star Ty Murray appeared to have the makings of a fairytale ending.
Unhappily, the long-running romance and marriage have just just come to an end in the form of a divorce. Who is Jewel now dating, and what does the future hold for her?

Who is Pop Singer Jewel Married to?
After 16 years together and six years of marriage, Jewel and her husband Ty Murray have decided to split up.
The folk singer, who has been nominated for a Grammy, broke the news in a blog post titled “Dear World” on Wednesday. In it, she explained in length why their marriage had ended “thoughtful and tender undoing”. The couple dated for ten years before the singer, then 34, married the bull rider, then 44.
Jewel explained that she and Murray wanted their supporters to hear the news from them instead of “the tabloids,” so that’s why they posted it on Jewel’s blog. Furthermore, the singer rebranded the separation in a manner reminiscent of Gwyneth Paltrow’s “conscious uncoupling.”
“Ty and I have always tried to live the most authentic life possible, and we wanted our separation as husband and wife to be nothing less loving than the way we came together,” she explained. “For some time we have been engaged in a private and difficult, but thoughtful and tender undoing of ourselves. Allowing ourselves the time and space to redefine what we are to each other with love rather than malice.”
The singer went on in her lengthy blog post to explain why she prefers to lead a real public life, stating that she didn’t want “anger to burn the ties that bound” her various relationships.
What Was the Reason of Divorce?
Jewels mentioned “irreconcilable differences” as the reason of her divorce with Ty.
“Oddly the very thing that Ty and I sought in coming together is the very thing we seek in separating. We both value growth. And growth became tragically and undeniably stifled as a couple, and we believe we can find it again in setting each other free,” Jewel wrote. “We truly believe we can find greater happiness apart than together, and this is why we are taking the enormous and heartbreaking step of divorce.”
She concluded the article with a statement of support for couples going through marital difficulties and a stock joint statement from herself and Murray.
“Our dedication to our son is unwavering and we are both committed to being the best partners in raising our son. Due to the spirit in which we have gone about this separation, we trust we can remain dear friends who hold each other in high esteem, which is so important to us as parents- as we wish only what is best for our son,” they said, signing off that portion with “Ty and Jewel.”
Is She Currently Dating Anyone?
Jewel has not been one to broadcast the details of her personal life, including her romantic relationships, to the general public. She has maintained a low profile on this aspect of her life.
Nevertheless, she did spoke about her relationship with NFL player Charlie Whitehurst in an interview with People, when she revealed that the couple had been dating for quite some time. The two people have not been forthcoming with information regarding the specifics of their relationship, but it appears that they have been together since sometime in 2016.
The two of them have been seen in some social media pictures together, where the posts highlight events from their exotic holidays and show them posing in front of costly cars. When asked about her relationship, Jewel stated, “I was very slow in going public. We’re not people to go out on ‘the scene.’”
It is true that it is difficult to provide conclusive evidence that the couple is still together; nevertheless, given that Jewel has a track record of maintaining low-key, long-term relationships that she keeps out of the public spotlight, it is quite likely that they are still very much together.
