After the split, Lizzie talked to OK! Magazine regarding her unresolved issues with ex-husband Jason. She said in the interview,
"I've never been on my own and it's very frightening. I feel so betrayed. I've had panic attacks and I feel like my right arm has been cut off. I'm so shocked at how hideous he is being. I don't know him anymore and I've been married to him for so long. That's the thing that hurts the most."
Lizzie was devastated by her divorce from her ex-husband Jason.
Two years post her divorce, Lizzie was linked with actor Gerard Butler in 2014. However, the rumors were soon declared as a hoax as none of the two confirmed the relationship.

Lizzie even talked about her own experience of dating younger men whom she considers as energetic and more enthusiastic than older guys. She also mentioned a guy who she met on Instagram and went out on a couple of dates. Lizzie said,
"I met a guy recently through Instagram and he kept liking my pictures and suddenly I’m getting messages. I think that’s a whole new way of meeting people, because they didn’t have Twitter and Instagram when Mel and I were teenagers."
Lizzie further revealed her method of keeping a young man in control,
"When it comes to dating a younger man, it's all about keeping things fun, staying in good shape and banning his PlayStation if necessary."
Moreover, she also mentioned that getting mistaken for her date's mother was the worst thing that can happen, however, fortunately, she hadn't faced the awkward situation.
As of 2018, Lizzie is reportedly single and hasn't shown much interest in starting a new romance.
