Personal Life: Who Is Her Husband?
It is rather unfortunate that we’ve all come to expect the worst, in terms of duration, from celebrity couples, considering their relationships are notoriously short-lived; sadly, Jenny Slate’s marriage falls right into this expectation.
The actress got married to Dean Fleischer-Camp on the 15th of September, 2012. Dean is a film director, editor and a New York Times bestselling author. He is known for his work on Fraud, Science Fair (Or: Migratory Patterns & the Flight of the March Brown Mayfly) and Marcel The Shell With Shoes On, which he worked on with his wife to be, Jenny Slate.
Dean is a celebrated filmmaker and his works have received critical acclaim from all over, he was even named one of 25 New Faces of Independent Film by Filmmaker Magazine.
The couple managed to keep a low profile all through the marriage, making their divorce the most newsworthy subject about their union. Jenny and Dean sadly separated in 2016.
Chris Evans Split: Are They Still Together?
Many have speculated that Chris Evans maybe have been the reason Jenny Slate chose to end her marriage with Dean. The two worked together on 2017’s hit film, Gifted, which is how they met. Filming for Gifted took place in 2015 but the pair remained friends until after Jenny split from her husband, which is when they decided to take their friendship to the next level and began dating. In March 2018, the lovebirds were rumoured to have ended their relationship, for the second time. Nevertheless, there is no confirmation of where they stand at the moment as they keep a tight lid on their personal affairs.
