But their relationship did not last long though, and Katie got engaged a year later to financial manager John Molner.
The same year, Chris was also seen romancing with Lisa Gastineau, a reality TV star, but later ended their romance due to personal differences.
Likewise, Chris also dated Brandi Glanville, a reality TV personality, in 2012 who later went on to say this about Chris in her Bravo blog the same year:
“Clearly her misinformation wasn't taken to heart because I did eventually have a date with the handsome Chris Botti, and NO we didn't sleep together, but we did have a super sexy fun time. Sadly for me, he is always traveling or working, but we do keep in touch and are friends.”
The talented musician, despite dating few celebrities, does not seem too eager to get married. Well, it might be because he chooses his career over getting married and having a wife.
So, his fans and followers may have to wait longer to see Chris become a family man in the future.
