Shanna Moakler Cutting Ties with Boyfriend Matthew Rondeau after ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ Eviction
Well, that was quick!
Shanna Moakler's relationship with her boyfriend Matthew Rondeau ended after a dramatic February. They went from being almost engaged to breaking up in around a week.
And what's surprising? Moakler didn't know when half the events happened.
Shanna Moakler's Relationship Timeline with Boyfriend Matthew Rondeau
February started well for Moakler and her boyfriend. On February 7, 2022, TMZ broke a story claiming Rondeau was already looking for engagement rings.
He was spotted at Tiffany and Co. in Thousand Oaks over that weekend checking out wedding bands, and the outlet even compared his preparations with Moakler's ex-husband, Travis Barker, and Khloe Kardashian's engagement.

While all this was happening, Moakler was in the Celebrity Big Brother house, oblivious to the outside world.
But, on February 9, things started getting bad. Terri Mellencamp, one of the past contestants of the show, revealed things Rondeau said about Moakler in her DMs. He had shaded his girlfriend in texts with her.
The situation got worse just three days later. February 12 brought the news about Moakler's flirtatious behavior on the show with Lamar Odom.
Once Rondeau noticed this, he reportedly started having doubts about his relationship.
TMZ again reported, citing "sources with direct knowledge," about Rondeau's discontent regarding the "subtle sexual innuendoes flying back and forth" between Moakler and Odom inside the CBB house.
He had been watching the show since she became a part of it and had felt like she was crossing boundaries.
Valentine's Day could be the worst Day to let the world know you might have broken up with your girlfriend. But Rondeau did just that.
On February 14, Page Six reported that he had deleted all his posts with Moakler from his Instagram. He even unfollowed her on the platform.
Of course, Moakler didn't know about this since she was still on the show. Page Six also approached him for an explanation for his deeds.
He only replied with a cryptic, "Soon they will know."
That same Day, Moakler got eliminated from CBB. She had gushed about her relationship with her boyfriend right before her exit.
But her exit meant she was back in the real world and immediately noticed the mess.
By the next Day, she, too, made her moves. On February 15, Us Weekly reported that Moakler, too, had unfollowed Rondeau on Instagram.
However, she had not deleted her posts with him at the time of the reporting.
Shanna Moakler and Matthew Rondeau's Relationship
Moakler and Rondeau started going out in 2020. Their courtship started as an off-again-on-again thing.
And it has been the same throughout their time together. In July 2021, Rondeau revealed that they had broken up.
In fact, he admitted they had broken up "months ago," saying, "sometimes love isn't enough," and it was disappointing things hadn't worked out between them.
However, by October, they had gotten back together. It was also the first time engagement was brought up.
A source close to the couple told Us Weekly at the time that they could even get engaged soon.
But that didn't happen. Instead, in February 2022, Rondeau was arrested for felony domestic violence.
The police were involved after he posted an Instagram video launching derogatory comments about Moakler.
He alleged she was cheating on him with their neighbor and claimed their relationship was over.
After the reported arrest, a representative for Moakler confirmed she was okay and surrounded by family and friends.
Her daughter Alabama also came forward, stating her mom was fine and her ex boyfriend Rondeau "needed serious help."
Nearly a month after, Moakler then surprised her fans with her pregnancy news. But she later clarified that she was not pregnant and had received a false positive test.
"I received a false positive test due to the fact I had taken a hormone called HCG to help me lose weight for Big Brother," she told People.
While she clarified she was not pregnant, she did hint at her desire to be pregnant. She stated having more kids down the line was "not out of the question for me."
Moakler already has three kids from her previous relationships.
She gave birth to two children: daughter Alabama and son Landon while being married to Barker from 2004 to 2008.
Before that, the Miss USA 1995 had already welcomed a daughter named Atiana with her ex-fiance De La Hoya.
