Some girl that lives near me bragged about having slept with Stephan Jenkins - and this was right when he and Vanessa started dating. She was a "groupie" so to speak and it's sort of gross if it's true bc she was only like 17 or 18 at the time.

But I just ended up from one power control freakish guy to another one, which was then my boyfriend at the time, Stephan Jenkins, who is in Third Eye Blind. 

I just thought, well, I guess I’ll just try this and not knowing that Stephan wasn’t really a producer either. But anyway my second record, it was just me. Don’t hire your boyfriend. I was just so young, I was 23 years old, 24 years old. Then Ron resented me because I didn’t want to work with Ron anymore, and I chose Stephan over Ron, and then, “White Houses” came out. They censored it because they didn’t like that any part of it was about sex or anything. There were moments of that song that were censored on MTV. So he stopped promoting that record, so it was like the classic sophomore slump in comparison to the first. That led to one more record. Squeezing one more out with Stephan, but it was also a pretty misguided idea on my end.

Releasing an entire album without any sort of acknowledgment is a crime

16-year age gap, they dated for five years, calling it quits in 2007.
