With her new fiancé in tow, Amanda Knox is back in Italy for the first time since the murder of her then-roommate Mereditch Kercher. Back in 2007, both Amanda, now 31, and her boyfriend at the time, Raffaele Sollecito, were charged and found guilty of the murder.

Amanda was sentenced to 28 years, but was released after serving only four when her case was acquitted, and went back to her native city of Seattle, Washington. 

Flash forward to 2019 and she's back visiting Italy with Christopher Robinson. So, is Amanda Knox married to him? Plus, where is her ex today?

Is Amanda Knox married?

Amanda Knox is quite public when it comes to her work in activism, as well as when it comes to the adventures she takes with fiancé Christopher Robinson. After breaking up with Raffaele, she finished her undergraduate studies at University of Washington with a degree in creative writing.

It was through writing a column for West Seattle Herald that the newly graduated Amanda met her now-fiancé Christopher Robinson (she was quickly engaged to middle school friend Colin Sutherland before meeting Christopher, but that came and went). Christopher had co-authored a novel, War of The Encyclopaedists, that she had reviewed for the paper, and the two hit it off immediately.

The happy couple now live together in Seattle, and a few months ago, in November, Christopher popped the question in an insanely elaborate space-themed proposal, asking, "Will you stay with me until the last star in the last galaxy burns out and even after that?" She obviously said yes.

However, the bride-to-be is in no rush to tie the knot.

Though Amanda and Christopher have been together for years now and foresee a long life together, they wanted Amanda's sister Deanna — who put her life on hold during Amanda's legal situation — to have her day in the spotlight as a bride.

"I very much love Chris and feel like he is my partner," the blonde said to People. "He would be a wonderful dad and we talk about it all the time. So I look forward to that part of my life that I had always taken for granted growing up and then had to let go of in prison."

For now, the two are excited to embark on their first trip to Italy since Amanda's acquittal. "Last time I was in Italy," Christopher wrote on Twitter, "I took a train to Florence, blew my money on a 100E bottle of barolo which I drank by myself while writing a bad story." 

"Then I slept underneath the Ponte Vecchio. This time with @amandaknox is going to be, shall we say...different," he posted. Different indeed!

Where is Amanda's ex, Raffaele Sollecito today?

Amanda and the man she was dating in Italy at the time of the scandal, Raffaele Sollecito, have gone their separate ways.

Having been originally sentenced to 25 years in prison — three fewer than his co-defendant — Raffaele was released at the same time as Amanda and has been living in Italy since. He co-wrote a book in 2013 called Honor Bound: My Journey to Hell and Back with Amanda Knox.

He also became involved in an entrepreneurial endeavor to build a social media site for the dead called Memories. The site would allow people to create profiles of their dead loved ones and order flowers to be delivered to their grave sites. 

These days, it seems like he's enjoying life, concerts and the summer in Italy with friends. Follow him on Instagram, @raffasolaries.

What is Amanda Knox's net worth in 2019?

Considering her best-selling memoir, two documentaries (one of which was a successful Netflix-produced hit) and her hosting gigs, it seems like Amanda has picked herself back up since her days behind bars.

Now, she's the host of Broadly's "The Scarlet Letter Reports," which covers the public shaming of women by the media and how they manage to rebuild their lives after. She also hosts a Sundance Now show called The Truth About True Crime with Amanda Knox, where she explores shocking crimes beyond their sensational headlines. 

According to Celebs Net Worth Today, Amanda Knox is worth more than $3.5 million for the myriad ways she was able to rebuild her life from nothing following the 2007 Italy ordeal.
