The split got here after Don’s arrest on domestic violence charges, where she accused him of ‘adultery, cruel and abusive treatment, and irreconcilable differences’ in legal papers.

Speaking of their romance, Don told PEOPLE last yr that Paris is the ‘most wonderful person’ he’s ever known.

‘Love is crucial thing you possibly can have. You have got to like someone. Hate is such a burden. It’s a whole waste of time. I really like my children and I really like my girlfriend. I’m crazy for her.’

She gained notoriety for a 2017 episode of Catfish, a couple of 2011 incident wherein she began a relationship and exchanged nude photos with 33-year-old basketball player Chris ‘Birdman’ Andersen, when she was 17.

But it surely turned out they weren’t actually talking to one another, but a Canadian woman named Shelly Chartier was attempting to get money from Andersen.

Don was married to ex-wife Patrisha Shnier, 63, from 1987 to 2016, and so they share son Wyatt and daughter Jackie.

Patrisha filed for divorce two months after his arrest for domestic violence, citing ‘adultery, cruel and abusive treatment, and irreconcilable differences.’

In July 2016, Don pleaded guilty to domestic violence assault. His lawyers said on the time that he would face only a $3,000 nice if he stayed out of trouble for a yr.

His attorney, Walter McKee, also told DailyMail.com on the time that despite the plea, Don insisted he hadn’t been violent.

‘Don has been adamant since day one which he didn’t do what his now ex-wife said he did,’ McKee said.

‘But in the long run he decided it was higher to only resolve the case now and be done with it by entering pleas with zero jail, zero probation, and only fines.’
