The Truth About Dave Bautista’s Marriage To Sarah Jade

The name “Batista” will surely ring a bell to fans of wrestling who paid close attention to the sport from the late 1990s to the 2000s and beyond. Dave Bautista was a serial winner who inked his name in the history books as one of the greatest wrestlers ever by being world champion on six different occasions. He further holds the record for the longest reign as World Heavyweight Champion. The Hall of Famer, who was inducted as a part of the class of 2020, also won multiple tag team titles with wrestlers like Ric Flair, John Cena, and Rey Mysterio, as well as two Royal Rumble events.

Outside of wrestling, Bautista has made strides towards having a mixed martial arts and acting career. He has, however, enjoyed more success in the latter than the former having featured in some blockbuster Hollywood films like Man with the Iron Fists, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, and many more.

Deservedly, Dave Bautista’s achievements in his careers have garnered him fans from all corners of the globe, and is worthy of emulation. What people would, however, not be looking to emulate is his failure in multiple marriages. The wrestler has been married three times and divorced twice, with the third one to Sarah Jade currently looking like its heading in the same direction.

Who is Sarah Jade?

Sarah Jade is Dave Bautista’s third wife. As she often likes to describe herself, she is a ‘Classique style pole dancer’. Born in December 1987, Jade is a graduate of Sociology from the University of South Florida.

Drawing inspiration from the likes of pole dancer Alethea Austin, the young girl began pole dancing at the age of 18. She has since been able to compete in the performance art form, finishing first runner-up at the 2012 Amateur National Championship of the US Pole Dance Federation. She won the title of ‘Most Athletic Lady consecutively in 2012 and 2013 at the Florida Pole Fitness Championship. In 2016, she was named Miss Pole Dance America.

Sarah Jade organizes pole dance workshops at her pole dancing and fitness center – Buttercup Pole Dance America – located in Tampa, Florida. She also owns her own website where she promotes the art of pole dancing.

When Did They Get Married?

Dave Bautista exchanged marital vows with Sarah Jade in October 2015 after the pair had dated for several years. The bride wore an ivory lace wedding dress for the ceremony that was graced by family and friends, including Dave’s colleagues from the wrestling world.

Sarah and Dave’s wedding was the talk of the town and drew a lot of attention for many reasons. Of course, it was Bautista’s third marriage and many who did not know who the bride was wanted to know more about the lady who won the wrestler’s heart after two failed marriages.

Another thing that raised eyebrows among the public was the fact that there was a huge age difference between the couple. Dave Bautista is twenty years older than Sarah. There was extensive talk about this in the media but this did not deter the couple from going ahead with their intentions for each other.

Why Have They Separated?

In early 2019, several reports surfaced suggesting that there was turmoil in the Bautista household. Dave and his wife tried to be discreet about things going on at home but as time went on, it was glaring that they were in the middle of some marital issues. While it was not made public what the problem was between the two, it was later on reported that they had chosen to go their separate ways.

The media has since had a field day on what the divorce battle between the former love birds would entail as they have dogs together. The couple have quite not yet gotten around to initiate or conclude proceedings as a few have predicted that they may be room for them to come back together.

Dave Bautista’s Previous Marriages and Why They Ended

Dave Bautista’s first marriage was to a woman named Glenda. The two tied the knot in 1990 before welcoming their first daughter, Keilani Bautista, that same year. In 1992, they welcomed their second daughter named Athena Bautista. The pair remained together for eight years before divorcing in 1998.

Unlike Glenda who only got to remarry in 2014, Bautista wasted no time in getting married again. The same year he parted ways with his first wife, he married a woman named Angie. They have a son together and their marriage lasted for eight years before it hit the rocks in 2006.
