Sullivan Stapleton is no doubt one of the sexiest men we have in the Hollywood and adding to his great acting skills, getting settled in marriage could be one of the difficulties he could face.
Nevertheless, Sullivan’s dating history is quite fascinating as he has been out with women of various ranges. Sullivan sure had a lot of women lined up for him. He started with Carla Bonner in 2007 and 2008 but broke up sooner enough only for him to hook up with Jo Beth Tailor- an Australian television presenter, actor and singer. But despite the rumour about their plans to get married, the two broke up in two years (2010).
Its been recently rumoured that Sullivan is in a romantic relationship with Jaimie Alexander- the co-actress from the television show Blind Spot. The heated rumour started just after Stapleton kissed Jaimie onscreen. What seems not to be clear enough is if the couple is making plans to take it to the altar soon. But while we still wait patiently to get the good news from the couple, Sullivan can be assumed single. He is not yet married, but he has a girlfriend.
