Berniece Julien is an American businesswoman and the ex-wife of Tyson Beckford, an American model, and actress who hosted both seasons of the Bravo show Make Me a Supermodel. While a piece of verifiable information regarding her birth detail is yet to surface, some suggest Julien was born in the 70s somewhere in the United Kingdom. The Brit is also a former model and an entrepreneur.
If some reports are to be believed Julien grew up in West Yorkshire and studied at Huddersfield Technical College and The University Of Huddersfield. Again, as per the same sources, the former partner of Beckford has a degree in Business Management.
Berniece allegedly used to be a sales advisor and supply analyst. As for the present, rumor has it she is category management in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, the United Kingdom.
In recent times, there’s been a hunt surge regarding Julien’s name owing to the internet’s curiosity. Although the buzzes of interests keep surrounding her extensively, the former Ralph Lauren model remains reclusive to share her whereabouts or even allowing herself to get by the media. As mentioned, she presumably is living a spotlight-free life in her home country, back in the UK. Because of privacy concerns, Berniece has always kept her personal information a secret. This secrecy includes her birthday details too. There is not even a single image of her on the internet. She has an Instagram account with very less followers and kept her group private.
Berniece Julien Age, Birthday, and Ethnicity
Even though her exact date of birth and birthday is not known, reports have it that she was born sometime in the 1970s in the United Kingdom. Berniece Julien is assumed to be around 34 years old of age. Her ex-husband, however, is 50 years old.
She has a white ethnic background and holds British nationality.
Berniece Julien Husband:
Julien and Tyson Beckford were mostly incognito throughout their relationship, marriage, and even the divorce. Some say they even had a low-key wedding sometime in 2017, though, there was little to no credence to that theory. Although detailed information remains unavailable, the duo met at a party in Los Angeles in 2006. Berniece Julien and the supermodel tied the knot with a private ceremony on January 4, 2007, in Grenada, the Caribbean. The former couple divorced shortly after their wedding in 2009.
Beckford is often considered one of the most successful black male supermodels of all time. He achieved fame and huge contracts similar to the female models that had huge success in the 1990s parallel to the likes of Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Stephanie Seymour, among others.
Much like Beckford’s other relationships, his union with Julien didn’t last long either. And while the former couple never discussed the reason behind their split, some claimed it had something to do with Beckford’s igniting relationship with the Australian model, Shanina Shaik.
Some, on the other hand, presume it might have been because of Tyson’s controlling boyfriend nature. Beckford, himself has confessed to being high-handed in a relationship. Once he explained he has a way of putting his foot in his mouth. The New Yorker also said he has no filter and often gets controlling with a partner.
Julien’s ex, Tyson Beckford has had a very high-profile relationship with some well-known celebrities, mostly, models. One such is from the fame of Victoria Secrets, Shanina Shaik who Beckford was in a relationship with, from 2008 to 2015. The things, however, didn’t end on great terms.
Before Julien, Beckford had a son with stylist April Roomet who is a fashion designer. Roomet gave birth to Jordan Beckford in 1999. As of 2021, their son, Jordan is currently 21 years old. He often posts selfies to his Instagram page, and also starred on the now-defunct E! show “Candy Girls.” Beckford and Roomet dated from 1997 to 1999.
Additional women whom the Bronx native has dated over the past couple of decades include models Nikki Giavasis, Imogen Thomas, CariDee English, and Alicia Hall, and rapper Foxy Brown.
Julien’s ex, Tyson Beckford, as of the early 2020s, is apparently in a relationship with a model, Justina Caputo. This is the first woman he’s been linked with since Paige Butcher in the late 2000s. Beckford had a short-lived romance with Butcher, who later went on to have a child with actor/comedian, Eddie Murphy.
Berniece Julien Divorce:
While the couple’s relationship started with spending as much time together as possible, things did not work quite well after marriage. Everyone expected the couple would stay married forever, Julien and Beckford’s marriage did not work out that well. Their marriage only lasted for a little over a year. In 2009, Tyson and Berniece divorced and went their separate ways.
Adding fuel to fans’ flames of curiosity on why their marriage ended, both Berniece and Tyson never gave an official reason.
There were ongoing speculations that Tyson Beckford was having an affair with Australian model Shanina Shaik and at the same time, he was married to Berniece Julien.
In fact, that was the supposed reason for their divorce. Apparently, Tyson met Shanina Shaik in 2008, on the set of the American reality television modeling competition show, Make Me A Supermodel.
Even after the break up between Tyson Beckford and Berniece Julien, the former kept on dating Shanina Shaik until 2015 when they parted ways.

Reports have it that Berniece Julien has an estimated net worth of around $1 million. This she earned through her professional career as an American businesswoman.
And also, from the handsome alimony received following her divorce from the American model and actor.
