Rob Bourdon's Overlooked Personal Life: Linkin Park Drummer Married Now?

Rob Bourdon, the drummer of the famous American rock band Linkin Park, has been playing drums since the age of 10.

The band, considered one of the most succesful in music history, has somehow overshadowed the original member of the group, Rob's personal life. 

Long Dating History

Rob has dated a series of women in the past. However, he was in a committed relationship with actress Vanessa Lee Evigan for seven years. But, they had to part their ways in 2007, without disclosing how they met and the reason for their break up.

Then Rob was rumored to have dated a woman named Susan for a short time in 2007. They supposedly broke up after less than a year of dating as he was involved in an affair with a different woman the same year.

Rob's most high-profile girlfriend was swimsuit model Irina Shayk, whom he started dating in 2007. The couple reportedly dated for two years and finally called it quit in October 2009.

After the breakup, Irina was linked to a series of celebrities including football star Christiano Ronaldo, former FIFA president Sepp Blatter, and actor Bradley Cooper.

Further, in 2011 a source claimed Bourdon to be in a serious relationship with a woman named Ashli. But, they never came out as exclusive and were thought to have parted their ways after a short while.

In the recent years, Rob's dating life has not much surfaced in the media. As of 2018, he is reportedly unmarried.

Career At Linkin Park

Rob along with his school friends Mike Shinoda and Brad Delson formed a nümetal rap band Xero which was later named Linkin Park in 1996. 

The band, which became the first ever rock group to cross the mark of one billion views on YouTube, has released seven studio albums to its name.

Further, Rob, who enjoys a considerable net worth of $20 million, has received most of his earning from the band as he has not been known to involve in any other business enterprises. Some of the most famous songs of the group include Numb, In the End, New Divide, Somewhere I Belong, Waiting For the End, and more.

 After the suicide of its lead singer Chester Bennington on 20 July 2017, the band went through a halt. However, Rob along with Mike revealed in the recent past that the group would go on without the lead singer, even though Mike further said that he had no plans on the immediate future of the band.

As of now, Rob is busy attending public events. On 20 March 2018, Rob attended the 75th Anniversary Party of Entertainment Industry Foundation. Rob, who showcased a bearded look, posed for a picture with other celebrities including Brad Delson, Chris Silbermann, Sherry Lansing and Nicole Sexton. 

Moreover, he also shared a picture with his bandmate Mike Shinoda on 13 May 2018 and congratulated him for his first solo tour titled "Post Traumatic Tour."
