Although Brandon is the son of two very wealthy celebrities, much of his personal life and details have been protected from the public. His parents have chosen to retain personal information like the schools he has attended and also not to open any social media accounts for him, as is the norm for most celebrity parents.

After the couple broke up, their son Brandon who was a year old at the time, moved in with his mother.
Although the couple did not reveal the reason for their break-up, Jimmy has a history of being violent in relationships, as was seen in the case of his marriage to his ex-wife, Elaine.
