Kasi Bennett came into the limelight in 2016 when Usain Bolt, the world record holder in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 4 × 100 meters relay races, identified her as the love of his life. The media and fans of the sprinter have since that time scoured the internet to find all they can about the Jamaican model who very little was previously known about. Read on to find out all we have been able to discover about Bennett and what she does for a living.
Kasi Bennett – Bio
Kasi Bennett was welcomed into the world on the 7th of July, 1990, in Old Harbour, Jamaica. Details about her family, such as the identity of her parents and whether or not she is an only child or has siblings, are not known to the public. It is further not clear where she attended both high school and college, however, several reports about her educational background indicate that she did receive a university education. It is said that she has a Bachelor of Law degree and a post-graduate degree in Business and Management.
Having had a huge interest in fashion since she was young, Bennett has always made sure to be the best-dressed person wherever she goes. She is also keen on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, which further keeps her in shape and makes her a point of attraction to many people.
Sometime in 2016, following the completion of the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, it was revealed that Kasi Bennett had been in a long term relationship with nine-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt. Bolt, who revealed this in an interview with People Magazine, further confirmed the news to the world by posting a photo of him and his girlfriend with the caption; “President and First Lady”. They have since that time appeared side by side at every other event, prompting further speculation that they could be secretly married.
Family – Kids
As mentioned above, there is no information available in regards to the family of Kasi Bennett. The only thing that is known about her in regards to a family is that she might soon be starting one with her long term partner, Usain Bolt.
In an interview with Stellar Magazine in October 2018, Bolt, who had retired from sprinting and was looking to launch a soccer career, spoke about wanting to start a family. He said he had wished to have done so a long time ago but was waiting for the right person.
Following that interview, rumors began to swirl around in the media that Bennett and Bolt were expecting a child. A few months later in December of that year, it was reported that the Jamaican sprinter’s “First Lady” was pregnant after she was seen at an event in Kingston looking bigger than usual. Quotes from people who saw her at the event said her stomach was bigger than usual for someone who is keen on fitness, and that her face was clearly bloated. However, others who did not seem to buy the story pointed out that she was smoking and drinking at the events, which would be clear signs that she was not carrying a child. Neither Bolt nor his Mrs has come out to confirm or deny any of the reports.
