Heidi Rhoades had a successful career as a music manager before she became a Yoga instructor. Though her two careers have exposed her to the public, she still finds a way to live a very private life away from the media eye.
Her scandal-free life is one way she has managed to keep herself out of the spotlight. This, however, does not suggest that there is nothing interesting about Heidi Rhoades. Learn many interesting details about the beauty below.
An Inside Look Into Heidi Rhoades’ Relationship With Jillian Michaels
Heidi Rhoades met Jillian Michaels through a mutual friend and almost immediately, they began dating. Michaels is a fitness trainer and media personality who is famous for her appearances on fitness shows, including NBC’s The Biggest Loser and Losing It With Jillian. Michaels is not only a fitness trainer but she is also a philanthropist, businesswoman, and author whose business and writing is built on the idea of healthy living which she propagates.
A few years into their relationship, Michaels decided that she wanted to become a parent, a feeling that Heidi also shared; so, in 2012, the two adopted a two-year-old girl from Haiti who they named Lukensia Michaels Rhoades. The adoption process took nine months and by the time Lukensia came to live with the couple in May, Rhoades was pregnant and a month to her due date. By June, Phoenix – the couple’s son and Rhoades’ biological child – was born.
Were They Married?
Though there were rumors that the couple had tied the knot, they actually never got married. However, in 2016, Jillian Michaels and Heidi Rhoades got engaged; the engagement took place on the final episode of the reality show, Just Jillian. The show, which is about Jillian Michael’s life, showed Michaels proposing to Rhoades with a video montage. The video began with old photos of the couple together and ended with Jillian asking Heidi to marry her, to which a tearful Heidi said ‘yes’. When she proposed, Jillian pointed out how perfect Heidi was for her, describing the former music manager as her safe haven. The engagement was supposed to take their relationship to the next level, as with most engagements.
When & How Did The Couple Break Up?
Following the couple’s engagement, it was expected that the couple would eventually get married, but this was not the case. In 2019, four years after they got engaged, the couple announced that they were going their separate ways; it is believed that the split happened months before their announcement.
The couple chose not to publicly explain why they decided to break up, but Jillian revealed on Instagram that she and Heidi had decided that it was best if they lived apart as they made better friends than partners.
Heidi then went ahead to file for dissolution of marriage with minor children; this was done to make it easier to share the custody of their kids and to provide legal backing to the way the couple shared their time between their kids. As a result, Jillian Michaels has 40% of custody while Heidi Rhoades has 60% of the custody of the kids.
Jillian, who is the richer one of the duo, had to pay $2.4 million to Heidi for child support; the money was an advance on what expenses might come up in the immediate future. In addition to this, she pays to Rhoades $2,000 monthly and settles other bills for the children. The legal backing of their separation also stipulates other rules in terms of how they relate to one another and what they say about the other person in the presence of their children.
Is Heidi Rhoades Dating Anyone Now?
Unlike her partner, Heidi Rhoades leads a quiet life away from the media. However, she frequently documents major events in her life on Instagram. From her social media posts, it is easy to see that most of the activities that Heidi Rhoades partakes in involve her children, pets, and nature. There has been no mention of a new romantic partner or any proof that she is making an attempt at dating anyone new.
Jillian Michaels, on the other hand, already got into a new relationship the same year that the couple broke up.
