So, Culpo learned what it’s like to be struggling and alone in this modern day world of ours. And she learned that she could still find value in someone who was loved. So she continued to love, even when they no longer loved her.
Long before she met Christian McCaffrey, Olivia Culpo was in a romantic relationship with pop star and actor Nick Jonas. She and the famous Jonas brother started dating in 2013, shortly after the two met backstage at that year’s Miss Universe pageant in Las Vegas. They broke up in 2015, with Culpo remaining decidedly mum about their split — until recently, when she finally let the cat out of the bag on her reality series “The Culpo Sisters” on TLC. Reflecting on her relationship with Jonas and the aftermath of their split, Culpo said it was a “very formative experience” for her. “I moved to L.A. with him. I had no brand, no money and I was in love,” she recalled (via E! News). “That was great, right? But when he broke up with me, I was kind of left with no sense of identity.”
Culpo said she was so in love with Jonas that she’d already imagined building a future with him, including walking down the aisle. “I thought we were going to get married, I thought all the things,” she admitted. However, all of her dreams came crashing down after she and the “Jealous” singer called it quits. At the time, Culpo said she was also struggling financially and could barely afford her rent and living expenses. “It was a serious, pivotal moment for me,” she said of their rough breakup. “But it’s something that taught me that you can’t give up.”
