Was Paul Walker Married or in Any Relationship Before His Death?

If Paul Walker’s death in 2013 was a devastating piece of news to moviegoers, it was an unbearable pain to his relatives and those close to him, including Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, who was his girlfriend at that point in time. Although the famous actor was a quadragenarian when he passed, he was never married. Nonetheless, he had a daughter with one of the several women he dated in his lifetime.

Paul William Walker IV lived from the 12th of September 1973 to the 30th of November 2013. He was born in Glendale, California, and died in Valencia, Santa Clarita, also in California, after a car he was riding in crashed into a lamp post and caught fire. His death was a painful one for many as he was returning from a charity event he was spearheading to assist victims of Typhoon Haiyan that devastated the Philippines.

Paul Walker Never Got Married But Was Dating Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell When He Died

Paul Walker’s unexpected passing was a traumatic shock to many, including his daughter, parents, siblings, friends, colleagues like Vin Diesel and other Fast & Furious cast members, and of course the woman he was dating, Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell.

The details surrounding the relationship between the late actor and Jasmine are quite sketchy as much wasn’t known about it until the actor passed. Based on what several platforms reported, one can deduce that the two had known each other for at least 7 years. It is said that they met when Jasmine was about 16 years old while the actor was 33.

From what we gathered, Jasmine and Paul were cohabiting at the time of his death. Reports have it that she had a great bond with Paul’s daughter and other members of his family. As one would expect, coping with Paul’s death was something Jasmine didn’t know how to do. She reportedly had to embrace grief counseling to get by.

The actor remembered for playing Brian O’Conner in the Fast & Furious franchise had never been married although he dated several women during his time.

All The Other Women Paul Walker Had Dated

While it was rumored that he was also dating Izabel Goulart when he died, and dated Amanda Paige sometime between 2004 and 2005, the following are the women who were known to have dated the actor at some point in his lifetime.

1. Denise Richards (1993 – 1994) 

Denise Richards is an American actress and television personality who was once a fashion model as well. She is known for the many characters she has portrayed in multiple popular movies and TV shows like The World Is Not Enough, Twisted, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The Bold and the Beautiful, and much more. Denis is also famed as the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen.

Paul Walker is counted among the people Denise dated before she got married to Sheen in 2002. It is believed that they met on the set of their 1994 film, Tammy and the T-Rex, and dated briefly for a few months. Denise divorced Sheen in 2006 and has been married to Aaron Phypers since 2018.

2. Rebecca McBrain (1996 – 1998)

Rebecca McBrain, also known as Rebecca Soteros, is mostly known for her relationship with Paul Walker which lasted for about a year. Born sometime in 1974 to Mark and Julie Ann Soteros, Rebecca worked as a teacher in Hawaii before she met and started dating the actor. While it is hard to tell how they met, it has been reported in some quarters that Rebecca left Hawaii and moved to California after she became pregnant for the actor. She wanted them to start a family but Paul wasn’t ready for it, so she pulled the plug on the relationship.

As you can guess, she is the mother of the late actor’s only child. Rebecca seems to have found love with someone else and is possibly married as she now goes by the name McBrain.

3. Bliss Ellis (1998 – 2003)

Also one of the women the late Fast and Furious actor dated, Bliss Ellis and Paul Walker reportedly met in Texas while he was filming the 1999 sports comedy-drama directed by Brian Robbins, Varsity Blues. Ellis was said to be a college student and she was seen with the actor in public several times while their relationship lasted.

It is hard to tell what Ellis has been up to but some questionable reports have suggested that she is married to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s brother, Patrick Knapp Schwarzenegger. True, Patrick is married to a former model and publicist from Texas named Bliss Ellis but we can’t confirm if she’s the same lady that Paul dated.

4. Aubrianna Atwell (2003 – 2006)

Around the same time Paul Walker dated Bliss Ellis, it was rumored that he was in a relationship with Christina Milian but the claims were never confirmed in any meaningful way. After the actor parted ways with Bliss, he dated Aubrianna on and off until 2006 when he began dating Jasmine.

Based on a Daily Mail report, Paul and Aubrianna Atwell met when she was about 16 years old and attending a modeling school in Los Angeles. They lived together at some point and remained friends after they ended their relationship. Commenting on the death of the actor, Atwell who had lost her father to cancer a few days before the actor passed, described both men as “the most important men” in her life; adding that the actor was going to attend the memorial service of her father.

Meet Meadow Rain Walker – Paul Walker’s Only Child

As mentioned above, Paul Walker’s relationship with Rebecca McBrain led to the birth of a daughter named Meadow. She is the only child of the late actor and was born on the 4th of November 1998. The 22 years old was only 15 when she lost her father. Meadow has been pursuing a career in modeling which has seen her feature in campaigns for famous brands like Proenza Schouler.

Paul and Meadow had a great bond and were inseparable. This made Walker’s passing a horrific experience for her. She often shares pictures of the time they had together on her social media pages to keep his memory alive.

Meadow is the sole beneficiary of Paul Walker’s estate valued at $25 million. Like her late father, she is also public-spirited. She is the Founder and President of Paul Walker Foundation; and supports Pencils of Promise, a charity committed to providing access to quality education for kids across the globe.
