Don Benjamin is leveling up during the quarantine. The beginning of the year saw one of his lowest point, however, just 7 months in, he’s re-shifted his life and is focused on being a better man.
You may have met Don Benjamin when he was a finalist on Cycle 20 of America’s Next Top Model. Or, maybe you met him through his music or one of his many high profile modeling gigs. Or, maybe you met him through social media, either on his own page or that of his former fiancée Liane V. No matter how you met him, it’s probably safe to say he left a lasting impression! The multi-talented model has amassed quite the fan-base online, but with all the notoriety comes sharing the highs and lows of life. And at the top of 2020 the latter happened.
In January, after many years together, Don and Liane announced they were going their separate ways. Almost immediately, rumors of infidelity crept up and plagued the newly-minted bachelor, but instead of playing the blame game Benjamin got to work on himself. The self-professed “R&B rapper” began to seek out pastors and self-help gurus to explore the many complex reasons why men cheat and how it affects those around them. Then Don started putting pen to paper and ended up with “My Truth”. The book explores several things including relationships, growth, accountability, and just how to be a better man all around.
HH hopped on Zoom to chat with DB about the book, but also about his many interest including music, modeling, merch and more. Check out the interview below!
