Sinnamon Love was one of the most prolific actresses in the adult film industry, but now she is giving up the business and dating a popular 1990s rapper.
A report from MediaTakeOut noted that Love is dating Jarobi from A Tribe Called Quest. The 42-year-old Love is a divorced mother of three kids, who left the adult film industry in 2011.
The report noted that the new couple has been spotted out together in New York.
“MediaTakeOut.com just heard the news that former pornostar Sinnamon Love is dating Jarobi from A Tribe Called Quest. Sinnamon Love starred in more than 1,000 movies, but retired a little over a year ago.
“Since then – she’s transitioned into the REGULAR WORLD. She’s no longer doing anything ADULT.
“And now she’s got a new man in her life. Multiple sources say that Sinnamon and Jarobi from a Tribe Called Quest, were looking like a HOT new couple last week at a 1990s party in NYC.
“We wish them both all the best…”
For Sinnamon Love, her retirement marked the end of a nearly 20-year career in the industry that included a number of honors.
Her IMDB.com biography has some of the highlights:
“She first began performing in explicit hardcore movies in 1993 and has appeared in well over 200 adult features. She was inducted into the Urban X Hall of Fame in 2009 and the AVN Hall of Fame in 2011. She has also worked as a fetish model and a professional dominatrix. Her hobbies include cooking and board games. An ovarian cancer survivor, Love resides in Brooklyn, New York.”
While Sinnamon Love may be considered one of the top actresses in her industry, her new boyfriend may have an even more influential career. A Tribe Called Quest, which first formed in 1985 in Queens, is considered one of the most influential groups of all time and a pioneer of alternative hip hop. John Bush of AllMusic called them “the most intelligent, artistic rap group during the 1990s,“ and About.com ranked them the No. 4 best rap group of all time.
