The couple hid their relationship for over a year despite both of them having a heavy fan following.
Both Jewel and Charlie are of the opinion to keep their lives low-key and not very public.

Athletes and celebrities are human beings like the rest of us. It is very natural to wish to remain private about their personal lives and not share every intimate detail about their love lives with the world.
There are a lot of celebrity couples who disclose that they dated once the fling is over and that is very natural as nobody wants to remain under the radar 24/7.
