Nickelodeon alum Drake Bell has revealed that he has been married to rumored girlfriend Janet Von Schmeling for nearly three years. He also mentioned that the duo recently welcomed a son together.
Drake Bell, who rebranded his name to Drake Campana, tweeted in Spanish to share the news:
“In response to various rumors that are incorrect, I have been married for almost 3 years and we are blessed to be the parents of a wonderful son. Thank you very much to all my fans around the world for your good wishes.”
Bell’s tweet comes days after the “Drake and Josh” star was spotted taking a stroll around Disneyland with his wife and son. The latest news arrives amid Drake Bell’s ongoing trial for crimes against a minor.
The “LA Slasher” actor made the news after he was charged with felony and misdemeanor. He was arrested by the Cleveland Police last month. Drake Bell was allegedly accused of inappropriate behavior against a 15-year-old in 2017.
According to the alleged charges, then 31-year-old Drake Bell met the victim at his 2017 Cleveland concert. He later engaged in improper conversations with the minor, some being sexually inappropriate in nature.
Though the “I Know” singer was initially released on a $2500 bond, he pleaded guilty to all charges on June 23rd, 2021. Drake Bell was charged with child endangerment and dispersing harmful matters against a juvenile.
The actor’s recent appearance at Disneyland with his wife marked his first public outing since the June 23rd trial.
Who is Drake Bell's wife, Janet Von Schmeling?
Janet Von Schmeling is reportedly a model, actor and producer. She has previously collaborated with Drake Bell on the series “Painting Autumn.”
Schmeling hails from Orlando, Florida and was born on June 1st, 1996. According to Page Six, the 25-year-old works for Decibel Media Group, a PR company. The agency has only two artists listed on its website, one of whom is Drake Bell.
Janet Von Schmeling was reportedly linked to Drake Bell back in 2017. During their latest Disneyland outing, the duo were spotted wearing matching wedding bands.
Meanwhile, Bell is set to face sentencing in the upcoming July 12th trial. Reports suggest the actor is likely to face up to two years in prison upon pleading guilty.
