Have you ever watched the American MTV reality TV series, Jersey Shore? If yes you are familiar with the name Paul DelVecchio or Pauly D who starred as a housemate on all six seasons of the show from 2009, to 2012. Asides acting, he is popular as a disc jockey who started his career as a local DJ under the name Pauly D.
Paul D. DelVecchio Jr. was born on July 5, 1980, in Providence, Rhode Island, United States. He is the son of Paul D. DelVecchio Sr. and Donna DiCarlo. Paul has one sister Vanessa. So far, Paul holds American citizenship and is of mixed American Italian ethnicity. For his education, he attended Johnston High School.
The Relationship Status Of DJ Paul
Currently, the 39 years old famous musician doesn't seem to be dating anyone. But he once had on an on-and-off relationship with singer Aubrey O'Day, 36, between 2015 and mid-2017.
DelVecchio and O'Day first met each other on the set of reality TV show Famously Single in 2015. During their love period, they even starred together on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, which aired on We TV. On the show, the two reportedly spilt but never tied the knot.
But, in 2017, the former lovers ended their long-term relationship before their Marriage Boot Camp season premiered on TV in 2018. Since their split, they have kept making critical remarks about each other.
The 1.63 m tall singer-songwriter told US Weekly in September 2018 that she "had really felt tortured" while she dates DJ. In contrast, Pauly D said her description made him feel shocked. “That’s such a strong word to say, like she’s a bit dramatic", he stated.
Prior to that, the disc jockey also had a love affair with his Jersey Shore's cast member Jenni JWoww Farley. The two started dating in 2009 but they parted their ways after just two months.
He Is A Father Of One Daughter
Indeed, the reality TV Star is the dad of one lovely daughter. He announced in October 2013 that he became a father for the first time to a little girl named Amabella Sophia Markert. “I’m proud I’m a father. I am excited to embark on this new part of my life,” Paul said at that time.
His little baby girl Amabella was born in May 2013 to a woman Amanda Markert, whom he had one night stand in Las Vegas Nevada. DJ and Amanda, who once worked as a waitress at Hooters, did not know each other before that night.
Then, Pauly D and Markert started a custody battle over their child when Amabella was just 5 months old. Despite the ugly fighting, Markert later reportedly agreed to co-parent with Paul. Thus the pair puts aside their differences for their daughter's priority.
In 2014, they finally had worked out a temporary visiting rights agreement. The agreement will allow Pauly D to spend entire weekends with Amabella without the guidance of her mother, Amanda.
Now, DJ's 7-year-old daughter now lives with her mother, Markert, in New Jersey. Before welcoming daughter Amabella, Markert already had a son named Mikey, from a past relationship.
