Personal life

Haley appears to keep away from the spotlight, compared to his bandmates, Williams, and, to a lesser extent, Hugo, who are both members of the production duo The Neptunes. During an interview by The Source Magazine, Haley stated that this is all intentional as he does not wish to pay the price of fame, such as being mobbed by masses of fans or having to hire a bodyguard.

In November 2010, he married Jackie Garcia, the former girlfriend of slain NFL Safety Sean Taylor[2][3][4][5] and niece of actor Andy Garcia.
