8/8 Olivia Culpo’s Relationship With Singer And Actor Nick Jonas
Perhaps Olivia Culpo’s most high-profile relationship was with Nick Jonas. The two met when Jonas landed his hosting gig at 2013’s Miss USA pageant. He also admitted to writing a number of tracks from his second studio album, including his hit song, “Jealous,” about her. She also appears in the video to the song.
The singer told Wendy Williams: “We went out one night and this guy was looking at her for a little too long. It was uncomfortable. I’m not a jealous person and this was an experience that I was one or two drinks in. I really got into it, and then I decided to…just process this a different way and go into the studio and write this song,” he added.
The pair split in 2015, “The long distance and ups and downs have been weighing on the two of them lately, and it has not been easy but they know this is the best decision for them at this time,” a statement said. “She’s an amazing person,” Nick told Extra after the breakup. “We had a great, beautiful few years together, but it’s been a crazy couple months and I wish the best to her for the future, but it’s tough.”
Culpo still speaks fondly about this “formative” period. “I moved to LA with him,” she said. “I had no brand, no money, and I was in love. So that was great, right.” “When he broke up with me, I was kind of left with no sense of identity,” Culpo continued. “My whole identity was in him, which is a very common story of a young person in love. I thought we were going to get married. I thought all the things.”

From September 2015 to November 2015, Olivia Culpo and Tim Tebow dated. It was reported that she called it off with him.
During this period, Tim was deeply devoted to his faith and was practicing celibacy. Many believe this was why their relationship ended.
In February 2016, Olivia and former New England Patriots footballer, Danny Amendola, went Instagram official with their relationship. They broke up in March 2018, before reconciling and splitting again in 2019.
During their off periods, Culpo was spotted with Zedd and Amendola was spotted with Miami-based CBS reporter, Bianca Peters. The couple officially went separate ways in April 2019.
In an Instagram rant, Danny blamed their split on Olivia’s lifestyle and career and posted, “I believe there should be a boundary btw private life and social media. Olivia believes in the fishbowl lifestyle. This fundamental difference was huge in our relationship.
“If you’re my real friend you know I’m private. My mother, brother, father and nephew are closest to me in this world and you don’t see one picture of them and that’s for their protection from those who criticize and judge.”
“Olivia chooses and wants to be noticed on the internet and in Hollywood to make money,” he added.
“The cost of fame in this world doesn’t appeal to me. I play ball for one reason and that’s RESPECT.”
4/8 Has Olivia Culpo Been Cheated On?
Olivia Culpo has spoken about her troubled relationships on her reality show, “I’ve been cheated on and lied to quite a bit in my past. Once the trust is broken, it’s over. It’s so hard to mend that relationship. I was put through hell and those were traumatizing experiences.” While Olivia didn’t name any ex-boyfriends by name, she made it clear that her experience is a different situation from her sister Aurora’s. “I feel bad for Aurora because I think she doesn’t believe that she could just be with somebody who just wants to be with her,” Olivia said in her confessional.
In May 2019, Olivia became romantically linked to Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey.
“Thank you for changing my life and showing me the kind of love I always wanted but never thought was possible,” she said in a sweet 2020 Valentine’s Day tribute. “You are the definition of an answered prayer. I am the luckiest girl in the world”
On June 22, 2022, she shared details of her three-year romance with the football player. “Three years ago I was not looking for a relationship. When my best friends Kristen & Tyler called me and asked if I would be open to meeting their friend Christian I was apprehensive.”
“I was worried it would be the same old story all over again and that all guys were the same,” she explained. “While my expectations were low, I knew I couldn’t close myself off and make decisions based on fear.
On why she thinks their relationship has lasted so long, she said, “We’re both really understanding about [our] schedules and the way that things have to work for the time being, and that definitely helps,” she revealed. “I think when you’re on the same page with that, you really can make it work.”
Olivia Culpo has mentioned on their reality show that she feels under pressure to have children “ASAP.” Culpo has been candid on the TLC show about her battle with endometriosis which can cause fertility issues.
“Endometriosis can affect your fertility in a lot of different ways,” she said. “There is so much that I don’t know about what’s going to happen in the future with that condition and I worry all the time about my timeline. I feel like I have to have kids ASAP.” She does acknowledge that her partner is younger than her and focused on his career.
“[We’re] taking it day by day,” she said about the prospect of marriage or kids. “It’s really exciting, you know? There’s so much to be grateful for, and I don’t wanna give too much away because we do get into this a lot in the show, but … I know that everything’s gonna work out exactly how it’s supposed to. I’m really excited for that.”
