Who Is Jimmie Walker’s Girlfriend? Was He Married To Jere Fields?
American actor/comedian Jimmie Walker's relationship has always been a subject of speculation and discussions. Married to his job, Walker has expressed little to no interest in involving himself in a marital relationship.
Despite Walker's refusal to be tied down by marriage, gossip about his personal life remains active. And, with that, the question arises, who is he dating? And, was he ever married to American actress Jere Fields.
Jimmie Walker And Rumored Wife Jere Fields Were Never Married
Jimmie Walker and Jere Fields have often been taken as husband and wife. But, it turns out the two have never been married. The misconception of their relationship started after their convincing and compelling appearance as a couple on the Tattletales show in 1982.
Tattletales was a CBS game show where celebrities appeared together with their spouses to answer the various questions and win money for the audience. So, when Walker appeared with Fields on the show, it stirred confusion among many people, and people concluded that the two were married to each other.
Walker shed light on his marital status by appearing on The Wendy Williams Show on 27 June 2012. On the show, he confirmed that he had never been married and never fathered any children.
Jimmie Walker Reportedly Dated Ann Coulter, But Relationship Denied
Around 2013, rumors began spreading about the alleged relationship between Walker and a far-right political commentator, Ann Coulter. But this was quickly dismissed by Ann in an interview with Huffington Post in October 2013. She clarified that they were nothing more than great friends, and jokingly said that Jimmie was behind the alleged relationship rumors.
Yeah, he is the one spreading that rumor. No, we are great friends, we do a lot of stuff together. We are dates. And yeah we're probably at the TV Land Awards dinner which is so fun and he is so hilarious, so I see him a lot when I’m in L.A. But we are not technically dating.
The rumor of their alleged relationship again popped up in 2017. In an episode of the Entertainment Weekly’s Untold Stories on 3rd April 2017, Good Times producer Norman Lear sat down with Black-ish creator, Kenya Barris, and stated that Walker was dating Ann Coulter. Norman even said that he went on a couple-date with Jimmie Walker and Ann. However, Ann Coulter quickly falsified the claim; she went on to address the rumors on her Twitter on 5th April 2017 and said that there was no romance between them.
Jimmie Walker Has Girlfriend After Being Vocal Against Marriage?
Well, the answer to that question, in short, is 'no' for now. No news or information on his current dating status or his girlfriend has come to the surface for now.
It seems like Walker is devoting much of his time to his career as a comedian and an actor.
With each stand-up tour lasting about 5-6 months every year, he has hardly left himself any personal time to raise a family. In a nutshell, the actor/comedian looks to keep himself on a quest to reach the top without any distraction from a relationship, family, kids, or wife.

He has also strongly expressed his views against marriage and why he chooses to remain unattached. In an exclusive interview with Closer Weekly in 2018, Walker explained that marriage was nothing but a sham that would eventually lead people to be angry, hostile, and prone to destruction and losing what he has worked for.
I just don’t believe it works. The majority of my friends are divorced, hostile, and angry. They lost the house they worked their a-s off to get. I don’t see the fun of it.
