At the time of writing, Diplo did not have a wife. However, the famous DJ has fathered multiple children with different women and has been romantically linked to many Hollywood stars, including a five-year on-again-off relationship with artist M.I.A.
Diplo, born Thomas Wesley Pentz, has made a name for himself as a DJ and music producer who has worked with several musical icons. However, since his rise to fame, his love life has also caught the attention of fans.
While Diplo did not have a wife at the time of publication, he is a father to three children he welcomed during former relationships. The music producer hasn’t been a stranger on the dating scenes either, as over the years, he has sparked romance rumors with Katy Perry, Chantel Jefferies, and M.I.A.

Diplo and His Ex Welcomed Their Second Child When They Were Already Broken Up
In 2012, Diplo opened up about his romance with the mother of his first child, Kathryn Lockhart, and revealed that while their relationship was not planned, he happily embraced being a family man. He shared:
“Now, I’m with an awesome girl with a baby, and I didn’t plan it, but I couldn’t ever ask for a better person to share this life with.”

In April 2012, Lockhart and her son were Diplo’s dates to a release party in New York City, and the following year, the pair appeared to be going strong as they attended REVOLVEclothing’s VIP Festival Event in Palm Springs and the 30th Annual ASCAP Pop Music Awards in Hollywood.
Unfortunately, by the time of Diplo and Lockhart’s second child’s birth in 2014, the couple had already parted ways. However, that did not stop the DJ from being a present father, as a source close to the Hollywood star said he was spending time with Lockhart and their newborn and buying the things their child needed.

Diplo Welcomed His Third Child With a Second Woman
Following the end of his relationship with Lockhart, Diplo became a father for the third time with a woman named Jevon Lola King-Myatt, who, according to her Instagram bio, is a wife, mom, and entrepreneur in Pennsylvania and was crowned Miss Trinidad and Tobago Universe in 2014.
Diplo and King-Myatt welcomed their child together in 2020. After celebrating his mother, Lockhart, and King-Myatt in honor of Mother’s Day, Diplo turned to Instagram again and revealed his son, Pace:
“[…] I was hesitant to post him because not only does he already had a better haircut than me.. But also because I havent met him yet since we are separated by a million miles and closed borders […].”
Although Diplo Does Not Have a Wife, He Has Dated Multiple Hollywood A-Listers
During an interview in 2012, Diplo opened up about his five-year, on-again-off-again relationship with British rapper and singer M.I.A. He revealed that while their romance was littered with issues, he found it near “impossible” to date someone also in the music industry.

“It was very obvious that Katy and Diplo were together. They seemed inseparable and at one point, they were seen getting onto her bus together,” a source said.
In November 2022, Diplo sparked dating rumors with fellow DJ and social media personality Chantel Jeffries as they were photographed enjoying a vacation in Cabo San Lucas before his 44th birthday. The following month, the rumored couple were back enjoying another beach date, as they were seen showing some skin while in Miami.
