Inside Shanna Moakler's high-profile yet tumultuous personal life: The model is a mother of three!
A model, actress, and reality television star, Shanna Moakler has more than enough credits in her resume which makes her a star in her own right. Yet, she is more famously known for her romantic life. Shanna's showbiz journey started when she started competing in beauty pageants as a teenager.
Moakler's journey to stardom became clear after she won the Miss New York USA pageant in 1995. She landed roles in Poison Ivy: The New Seduction, Telling You, Pacific Blue, and more, all while sparking dating rumors with some Hollywood A-listers.
Inside Shanna Moakler's Dating History!
Moakler's alluring beauty has charmed many in the past and while a few turned into long-term commitments, most of them were nothing more than flings, or unconfirmed romances. The Pacific Blue actress's earliest known beau is rockstar Billy Idol.
Moakler and Idol were first linked in 1997 but it seems the duo never made it past a few months. Shanna reflected admirably on her romance with the rockstar and she had nothing but respect for Billy. "He's not too sweet and sensitive. But he's a gentleman. He's got a great mind for history," Moakler said about Idol.
The beauty queen famously dated boxer Oscar De La Hoya for three years. Shanna and Oscar started dating in 1997 and announced their engagement after a year, in October 1998. The pair went on to welcome a daughter before splitting ways dramatically.
Moakler dumped the boxer after Oscar took another woman as his date to the Latin Grammy Awards, in 2001. "I'm sitting in bed, watching the Latin Grammy awards, feeling hurt that he went without me," said Moakler, who later slapped Oscar with a $62.5 million palimony suit. The estranged pair, however, decided to stay amicable for their kid's best interest.
Moakler's next relationship was just as famous if not more. She married Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, in 2004. The ex-pair share two kids. If you've been following the recent pop events, you'd know that Moaker and her famed ex weathered several ups and downs during their marriage and aftermath as well.
Barker filed for divorce from Shanna in 2006 amid dating rumors with Paris Hilton. The troubled pair reconciled shortly after only to call it quit again. Shanna and her ex-husband have since sparked infamous headlines numerous times, including when Barker started dating his now-wife, Kourtney Kardashian, in late 2020.
The Pacific Blue actress accused Barker of having an affair with Kourtney's sister, Kim Kardashian, back when they were married. To list out some of Shanna's lesser-known romances, she is known to have gotten involved with Dennis Quaid, Jordan Knight, David Charvet, and Bryan Sollima over the years.
Who is Shanna Moakler Dating?
Unlucky in love? After her stormy on-and-off romance with entrepreneur Matthew Rondeau, it's safe to assume that Moakler is single, and hopefully, off the market for the time being. The model-turned-actress started dating Rondeau in 2020, around the same time her ex-husband Barker started dating Kourtney.
The couple showed signs of a rocky romance early on as they called it quits within months. "I broke up with Shanna months ago," Rondeau said in July 2021. The pair had rekindled their romance by fall and were back to gushing about each other.
The duo hit a rough patch again in early February amid Rondeau hurling cheating accusations and profanities about Moakler in Instagram Live. The entrepreneur was later arrested for felony domestic violence. The Big Brother alum continued her on-and-off romance with Rondeau after his release and only left him for good earlier this year.
Shanna, 48, who shares a daughter, Atlanta, with Oscar, and two kids, Landon, and Alabama, with Barker, said she was expecting her fourth baby with Rondeau. The model broke the news of her fourth last year in March amid her split from Matthew.
Shanna thought that she was pregnant with her fourth before realizing it was a false pregnancy alert!
But thankfully for the mother of three, it turns out it was a false pregnancy alert. "I am not pregnant," Shanna cleared, adding, "I received a false positive test due to the fact I had taken a hormone called HCG to help me lose weight for Big Brother."
