Shannon Elizabeth Already Over Her Past Married Life; Now Dating a Hip-Hop Mogul Boyfriend

Moving on from one relationship to the other is not much of a new trend in Hollywood and Shannon Elizabeth is no exception of course. As you have already noticed, today we will be talking about Shannon Elizabeth who was married before but as it happens, she separated and started dating a hip-hop mogul. However, the question is, did she moved on from him too?

A failed Married Life:

In 2002, Shannon married her longtime boyfriend, actor Joseph D. Reitman in Mexico. Shannon and Joseph had a long relationship before commitment, and finally got engaged in November 1999. The couple did not mention the specific venue of their marriage, but Shannon did reveal that she and her boyfriend turned husband had their wedding took place in a small beachfront ceremony at the Hotelito Desconocido, a resort south of Puerto Vallarta.

No matter how much love they shared, their relationship apparently came to an end. Shannon and Joseph were living together for eight years which included their five years of cohabitating prior getting married in 2002, under an agreement which claimed,

"To be equal partners in the acquisition of assets and in financial affairs whether such transactions were separate or joint."

This agreement had Joseph seeking for half the property they both shared while staying together for eight years and also argued that he sacrificed his career to uplift hers.

Started having Boyfriend:

Years after that, she made the headlines while dating her dancing partner Derek Hough in Dancing with the Stars in 2008. However, Shannon and Derek’s relationship only lasted a couple of months as they split in August 2009.

Again after years, she found her way back to love again with hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons who like Shannon, also happened to be an avid animal rights supporter.

Shannon and Russell were pictured together in 2014 while they both were visiting Crossroads Vegan Restaurant. Both of them loved animals, so it was like a match made in heaven. However, Shannon and Russell made their first public appearance in January of 2014 at the Golden Globe Award.

Unfortunately, sharing similarities was not enough for the couple to stay together because Shannon’s ex-husband Joseph also supported her by teaming up to rescue animals from an organization called ‘Animal Avengers.’ But their relationship came to an end too and Russell was spotted with a beautiful young lady in late 2015 on the Island of St Barts.

Even now the dating status of the actress remains unambiguous as she does not have any rumors about dating anyone. 

A Short Bio With Net Worth:

Shannon Elizabeth was born on September 7, 1973, in Huston and currently ages 43 years old. She is known as an actress and a fashion designer, but people widely recognize her as an actress from ‘American Pie.’ Throughout her career, Shannon has played various roles in different movies, and TV series like Cuts and A Green Story and all of her work has helped her foregather splendid net worth of $9 million.

These days, she appears in movies now and then and has recently finished shooting The Opera Singer and is currently seen on Gibby, and Swing Away.

What is Shannon Elizabeth doing Now?

The actress who won everyone's heart from her role as a foreign exchange in the hit 90's movie 'American Pie'. According to her IMBd page, the actress is focused on her animal charity organization named 'Animal Avengers' and she even moved to South Africa back in 2016 for the sake of her charity organization. She is entirely focused on charity organization and touring the world to meet her fans and raising money.

In 2017, she had 'American Pie' reunion at the Horror Hound convention in Columbus, Ohio. Shanon has always managed to put herself in the spotlight and 2018 was no exception. She was one of the celebrities on the popular reality drama ' Celebrity Big Brother'.

In an interview with the Entertainment Tonight, she revealed that she is a huge fan of the show and further added:

“If you look at the winners, traditionally, it’s not the big strong guy that wins. It’s somebody who’s got good social game, it’s somebody who’s good with their mind and they have good memory, and they’re decent at competitions. It’s good to have a mixture.”

She was one of the popular and favorite contestants on the show as she was pretty good at completing her task and playing her cards right with the strategy. Her fans were expecting her to win the show at the end but things did not go as expected. She got evicted from the show and her fans were devasted by the news.

When asked about her feeling after eviction in an interview she expressed:

Now, in this moment, I feel fine. I’m much better. Just being able to see the sun rise and have fresh air and a Starbucks — everything is better.

She also revealed the thing she missed the most about the show:

The challenges and the games were so much fun. To me, that’s Big Brother. These classic games that we see season after season and there were so many more I really, really wanted to play. So I’m bummed that I didn’t get to do the wall last night because that’s one I really wanted to do.

After the show, the actress is already set back on to her charity organization for animals.
