Pia Miller and Patrick Whitesell: Everything we know about the actress’ millionaire fiancé
After a year-and-a-half together, Pia Miller has confirmed her engagement to talent agent Patrick Whitesell in late 2019.
In November 2019, the former Home and Away actress and the Hollywood heavyweight made their relationship red-carpet official as they attended the movie premiere of Ford v Ferrari after months of speculation about their relationship.
Miller, 37, and Whitesell, 55, have remained pretty tight-lipped about their relationship, but here’s everything we know about the couple so far…
Are Pia Miller and Patrick Whitesell engaged?
The actress first sparked rumours of an engagement after she wore a diamond band on her ring finger during an Oscars after-party in February.
However, the couple were separated for most of the year thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. Whitesell lives and works in LA, while Miller has a house in Sydney’s Bondi.
In November 2020, Miller announced on Instagram that the pair are now engaged, showing off a huge diamond ring.
Who are Pia Miller and Patrick Whitesell?
Pia Miller needs no introduction in Australia. The actress has been a fan favourite since her stint on the long-running soap Home and Away, playing Senior Constable Katarina Chapman on the show from 2015 to 2018.
Meanwhile, Whitesell is no stranger to the spotlight himself. As the co-CEO of top talent agency WME, he counts Ford v Ferrari star Matt Damon as well as Ben Affleck, Ryan Reynolds and Aussie Hugh Jackman as clients, and is often seen at A-list events in LA.
What is Patrick Whitesell’s net worth?
The talent agent is reportedly worth a whopping US$440 million (approx. $642 million).
And it seems he’s been reportedly spoiling Miller with his riches. For Miller’s birthday, it’s believed he bought her an oversized Chanel x Pharrell Williams bumbag said to be worth a cool $10,000.
Who was Patrick Whitesell married to?
Whitesell was married to actress and TV host Lauren Sanchez. He filed for divorce from the 49-year-old in April after it was revealed she had an affair with the world’s richest man, billionaire Amazon boss Jeff Bezos. The pair were married for 13 years and share two children, Evan, 13, and Eleanor, 11.
By mid-October, one week after Whitesell and Sanchez finalised their divorce, the talent agent was seen having dinner with Miller at West Hollywood hotspot Craig’s.
When did Patrick Whitesell and Pia Miller first make their relationship public?
The pair first sparked romance rumours in May, when Miller was seen vacationing in Mexico, where Whitesell is said to have a holiday home.
The actress seemingly confirmed their romance in June when they couple holidayed in Europe.
“Oh Paris, Paris, the city of lights — I’m in love,” she captioned a series of Instagram photos, one of which featured Whitesell standing with her under the Eiffel Tower.
They set off the rumour mill again in August when the new couple were seen aboard a luxurious yacht in Italy’s Amalfi coast with America Idol host Ryan Seacrest, 44, and his 27-year-old model girlfriend Shayna Taylor.
Who did Pia Miller date before Patrick Whitesell?
Miller was engaged to film producer Tyson Mullane up until April. The pair — who were dating for two years prior to their November 2017 engagement — never actually confirmed their split. Instead they both just quietly unfollowed each other on social media.
Before Mullane, Miller was married to former AFL star Brad Miller for eight years. The couple share a 13-year-old son, Lennox, but called it quits in 2015. The actress also has a 16-year-old son, Isaiah, from a previous relationship.
