In a matter of short time, Rufus fell in love with a scriptwriter and producer named Amy Gardner. The couple welcomed a baby boy named Billy in 2002. And after about two years of parenting a child, the couple decided to tie the knot. They got married secretly in 2004.

However, Rufus being a man with privacy concerns, was glad that his marriage and divorce with long-term girlfriend/partner was an amicable one. Amy and Rufus went through a divorce in 2006.

 It was revealed that Rufus was dumped by wife Amy Gardner for she was in love with Will Rickers, a Restaurateur, with whom she got married in 2007.

His Dating Priority:

Despite going through two divorces, Rufus maintained his own view of relationships. In an interview back then, he said:

 It's important to me to be in a relationship when I'm in one, but I'm not someone who needs to be in a relationship. I don't actively look for it, I've never been like that. I've gone through long periods without being with someone and got a bit lonely, but not for a while."

Dating Someone Secretly?

In 2008, Rufus, now 48, was believed to be dating his Rock ‘n’ Roll co-star Alice Eve. It was said that he dated her for about two years, but his dating rumor with Alice was never confirmed officially. However, in 2009, he was dating a Japanese-American hair stylist whom he met while he was filming Eleventh Hour in Los Angeles. In an interview with in 2013, he stated that he decided to stay in Los Angeles after meeting the hair stylist who hated the Hollywood. The hairstylist girlfriend grew up in LA. In the interview, he said:

 'It is more about a relationship and hiding away between jobs than anything else. It is more about a relationship and hiding away between jobs than anything else. And it’s cheaper than London. It’s where I go to avoid Hollywood, weirdly enough.’ 

The interview took place in 2013 when the couple was living together in Los Angeles. Currently, the actor has decided to remain silent about his personal life. They might have gotten married already, and if they are married, then the couple are probably living a happy life.

Nevertheless, Rufus enjoys a  massive net worth (estimated)of $5 million dollars. Currently, he can be seen in TV series Victoria portraying the character of Lord Melbourne.
