Are Chumlee and Wife Olivia Rademann Still Together? About the ‘Pawn Stars’ Star’s Relationship
Chumlee, whose real name is Austin Lee Russell, is a businessman and reality television personality renowned for his appearances on the History Channel television show Pawn Stars.
The 39-year-old Nevada resident reportedly married his long-time girlfriend Olivia Rademann in a private ceremony in May 2019. The news of their engagement celebration and marriage was even reported by Dailymail and publicized through the couple’s social media handles.
Two years later, Chumlee and Rademann are nowhere to be seen together, making many speculate if they have already called it quits.
But have they actually split? Here’s a run down to their relationship timeline and possible relationship status!
The Beginning of Chumlee and Olivia Rademann’s Relationship
According to Netline, Chumlee and Rademann started dating back in 2016. Their relationship grew when Rademann, the University of Nevada alum, helped Chumlee negotiate the legal battles that troubled him for most of that year.
During a police raid on March 9, the officials reportedly found lots of guns and drugs at the reality TV star’s house. He was immediately arrested on multiple drug possession charges and one weapon charge but was released on a $62,000 bond the next day.
The police stated they were investigating an accusation of sexual assault made by a woman against Chumlee.
Despite the odd situation, Chumlee and Rademann found a way to get closer to each other and officially became a couple that year. “We were friends for a year or two before we were ever a couple, and got together right around the beginning of 2016,” Chumlee told the Las Vegas Review-Journal in 2019.
Before starting his relationship with Rademann, Chumlee dated Tanya Hyjazi, a major chef at the Stack Restaurant and Bar in Las Vegas, around 2013.
They Became Engaged in May 2018
Fast forward to 2018, and the couple became engaged to each other. In May that year, they exchanged the rings at the Royal Hawaiian Waikiki with Chumlee giving her a diamond ring which was just over one carat.
A few months later, the duo also celebrated the engagement announcement with a dinner party at the D’s Andiamo Steakhouse.
The celebrations didn’t end there, as Chumlee and Rademann had a pre-wedding ceremony in March 2019.
The event was attended by Chumlee’s friends and castmates Rick and Corey Harrison, BMX star T.J. Lavin, D Las Vegas co-owner Derek Stevens and his wife, Nicole, and rapper Mikey P. and Kailah Casillas of MTV’s Real World: Go Big Or Go Home.
Later that year, in May, the couple eventually tied the knot in Hawaii, the same place where they became engaged. But because of work, they had to manage a long-distance married life.
Writing about the situation in his since-deleted Instagram post, Chumlee said,
Missing my wife, it’s hard living apart, she is off preparing for our future going to school at USCB while I am in Las Vegas working and it’s the little things I miss like waking up next to her or have dinner together. But knowing we get to spend the rest of our lives together and have moments like this picture is enough to make me happy.
But Are They Still Together Now?
But the key question is whether or not they are still together. Many fans and media outlets have reported that they have separated, citing their busy schedule as the reason for their split.
In addition, Chumlee has deleted all the photos of him and his wife from his social media, making the speculations look even stronger.
However, neither the pawn star nor the pawn star's wife has confirmed the divorce to date, due to which believing those baseless speculations can be a tricky option.
