David Portnoy is one of the most well-known figures in the entertainment industry thanks to his role as El Presidente of Barstool Sports. The 43-year-old is famous for his bold and outgoing personality, and since he’s in the public eye so much, it’s inevitable that there are always rumors swirling about his dating life. That said, we looked into his romantic history and girlfriends over the years since he’s typically hush-hush about it. Scroll down for what we found!
Who is David Portnoy dating?
As of now, David Portnoy’s love life is quite secretive. It doesn’t appear that he’s publicly dating anybody at this time, and if he is, he hasn’t said anything about it on social media and beyond.
However, in May 2019, he was spotted at the Preakness horse race with an attractive blonde woman. Reddit fans quickly decoded that her name is Claire Jacobs. They haven’t been seen together since, so we imagine nothing long-lasting came out of it.
Back in 2017, he also dated Jordyn Hamilton, but the two split after she allegedly cheated on him with a Soul Cycle instructor. The drama and their split was very public and rampant on social media, and he hasn’t appeared to be in a serious relationship since then.
Fans especially suspected that the media mogul is single and enjoying it after an alleged sex tape of him with an unidentifiable woman flooded the internet in December 2019. After the video leaked, he hilariously tweeted: “Breaking: Dave Portnoy f–ks.”
He followed up with an “official press release” mocking the entire thing and saying that he could not confirm or deny that it was him in the video.
“As many of you have seen by now, there is a NSFW video circulating that is taking the internet by storm,” he began. “The unidentified male appears to be in peak physical shape, highlighted by (but not limited to) the muscle strength, agility, and stamina to perform a highly-difficult sexual maneuver. You have to imagine an athlete like that would be playing professional baseball if not for a debilitating shoulder injury, hypothetically speaking of course.”
Has David Portnoy been married?
What many may not know is that Dave was married to Renee Portnoy from 2009 until they formally announced their separation in 2017 (the same time his relationship with Jordyn started). They met in 2005 and got engaged in 2008. They have no kids.
At this time, it’s unclear if the former pair ever moved forward with the divorce, but they have stated that they remained amicable for the sake of their dogs. Despite Dave’s fame and success from Barstool, Renee has managed to stay out of the spotlight.
Even though Dave is seemingly a single guy at this time, it’s no surprise that women on the internet have a thing for him. In February, he reposted a video on Facebook of a woman confessing her love to him with the caption “New Girlfriend Alert.”
“Portnoy, I’m obsessed with you. If you like the Melissa McCarthy type, I’ll rock your world,” the woman says in the video. Sounds like a catch, Dave!
