Olivia Culpo and Danny Amendola: A Timeline of Their On-Off Relationship

posted in: Entertainment News | 0

Ups and downs. Olivia Culpo and Danny Amendola‘s relationship appeared to be smooth sailing for nearly two years before it started showing cracks.

The gorgeous on-again, off-again couple first got together in early 2016, shortly after the model called it quits with Tim Tebow and, prior to him, Nick Jonas. Throughout the remainder of that year and 2017, the pair were seemingly happy together.

Things took a turn for the worst come 2018, however, as the pair broke up for the first time. “It had to do with the distance and them barely seeing each other,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly at the time.

While the Detroit Lions wide receiver and the 2012 Miss Universe winner got back together, broke up, then got back together again multiple times since then, Amendola slammed his ex in April 2019 after she was spotted getting cozy with Zedd at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, leading many to suspect that they’ve split for good.

Olivia chooses and wants to be noticed on the internet and in Hollywood to make money,” he wrote on April 19. “Which was hard for me to understand but quickly had to learn. Where as [sic] the cost of fame in this world doesn’t appeal to me. I play ball for one reason and that’s RESPECT.” Amendola also commented on the former couple’s sex life, saying it was “f–king crazy.”

The following morning, Amendola shared a cryptic note on social media: “People won’t often remember what you said. They will remember how you made them feel.”

Less than 24 hours later, the athlete took the “blame” for the “miscommunication” over his previous messages — saying, “Good vibes only from me!” — but then proceeded to share another cryptic message: “Fake people have an image to maintain. The real ones jus [sic] don’t care.”

2016

The pair were first linked in early 2016, but how they kicked things off wasn’t known until nearly two years later. “I met her on the corner of Hollywood and Vine, just walking down the street and we bumped into one another,” the Texas native said ahead of Super Bowl LII in 2018, which he competed in as part of the New England Patriots. “It’s crazy.”

June 2018

The twosome were spotted in each other’s company again at a friend’s wedding in June 2018. Come September, they confirmed their reunion on social media. “Olivia and Danny are better than they’ve ever been this time around,” a source explained in October, noting the relationship was “very strong” and the pair were “very happy.”

October 2018

The NFL star and the model went their separate ways again after Amendola was spotted getting cozy with sports reporter Bianca Peters. After photos of the pair’s beach hangout made headlines, Culpo cryptically tweeted, “Wow.” She also shared a photo of herself in a bikini that she dedicated “to all the snakes,” alongside snake emojis.

December 2018

Multiple sources confirmed yet another reunion between the duo on December. “Olivia and Danny are back together,” one insider revealed. “She’s obsessed with Danny.” A second source added at the time: “Olivia is totally infatuated with Danny and wants it to work. She’s serious about him and always has been.”

April 2019

The public became aware of yet another breakup between the once-happy couple in April 2019, after Culpo was spotted with Zedd. Amendola shaded the “Clarity” producer with a now-deleted audio clip from Pulp Fiction that featured Bruce Willis saying, “Zed’s dead, baby. Zed’s dead.” The following day, the 5-foot-11 star posted a lengthy Instagram caption, which concluded with: “We’ve been on and off for a long time and not together as of late! Not sure what’s in the future but the only thing I care about is her HAPPINESS. And if that’s dancing with scrony [sic] little f–ks, so be it. I’m happy too.”
