As a singer and actress who has become a Hollywood sensation, the This Is Us star hit the ground running right from her debut in both the music and film industries. While her first single – Candy scooped the #41 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, she equally made a grand entrance in the movie world with her acclaimed role as a dying girl in the 2002 film A Walk to Remember. With such an impressive resume to her credit in the entertainment world, there’s no gainsaying why we are all interested in knowing the latest about Mandy Moore dating timeline.
For what it’s worth, even though her relationship with Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith seems to have taken center stage in her love story, there were other amazing men before the musical artist swept her off her feet. In fact, Moore has not just been in many relationships in the past, she also married one of her love interests. Read on to discover all the juicy deets about Mandy Moore dating timeline.
Mandy Moore Dating Timeline: Past Boyfriends and Relationship History
With music as her first love, it’s a little wonder why the singing sensation has found love in the arms of music artists several times. However, she is not only attracted to musicians as is evident in the following list.
Wilmer Valderrama (2000 – 2002)
Their relationship can be described as on and off but when it eventually came to an end, there was a bit of a sad note around it. It wasn’t exactly funny when Wilmer talked about sex with Moore on Howard Stern‘s show. The actor who presumably popped Mandy’s cherry said: “…sex with Mandy was good, but it wasn’t like warm apple pie.” This comment didn’t go down well with Mandy. Notwithstanding, they have patched things up and are now in a good place but definitely not an item anymore.
Brian McFayden (2001 – 2002)
The MTV VJ entered Mandy Moore dating timeline after working with the singer – they hosted the 2001 “Miss Teen USA” pageant and a few MTV events, including New Year’s Eve 2002. They were rumored to be dating but it might just be a hoax as Moore who was barely 17 at the time refuted the claims, saying Brian was too old for her. He was 25 at the time.
Billy Crawford (2002)
If we are to take Billy’s word for it, they dated for at least a year but according to Mandy, the hookup was very quick, lasting a few weeks. Either way, we just know it happened and it began and ended in 2002.
Andy Roddick (2002 – 2004)
Mandy proved she isn’t only attracted to people in showbiz by hooking up with the American tennis player who is also a Grand Slam champion. Mandy Moore became his girlfriend in time to cheer him on as he slammed his way around the court to win the 2003 U.S. Open. Sadly, it had to come to an end but they have nothing but good words to say about each other.
Zach Braff (2004 – 2006)
They met at a Creative Artists Agency event and couldn’t deny the connection but obviously, happily ever after wasn’t in the picture. They appeared to be having a very good time together but their breakup was hard with Mandy fighting depression afterward but that didn’t linger.
Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein (2007)
Thankfully, Mandy Moore dating timeline was not badly affected by the depression she suffered in 2006. She and DJ AM dated for a few months before going their separate ways. Apparently, their split was amicable as they remained great friends afterward. When DJ AM survived a plane crash in 2008, Mandy was by his side in the hospital. Unfortunately, he met his untimely death in 2009 following an accidental drug overdose.
Greg Laswell (2007)
Mandy met the producer and musician through a mutual friend the same year she ended her affair with DJ AM but like a candle in the wind, their affection for each other burned out. Shortly afterward, Mandy began her relationship with Ryan Adams who would later become her husband.
Ryan Adams (2009 – 2016)
Mandy and the former Whiskeytown frontman started dating early in 2008 and though Ryan was initially in denial, he put a ring on her engagement finger in February 2009. Their wedding took place on March 10, 2009, in Savannah, Georgia. In January 2015, divorce came calling – filed by Mandy Moore who cited “irreconcilable differences”. Court documents revealed that they were already separated like six months ago before making things official.
Taylor Goldsmith (2016 – ???)
Before her divorce from Ryan was finalized in 2016, Moore and Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith were already winning hearts on social media as a couple. They went on to get engaged on September 23, 2017, and we can’t wait to see her in a wedding dress one more time.
