Shaun White's Dating History Is Kinda Surprising


May. 29 2020, Updated 5:44 p.m. ET

Shaun White is an incredible athlete. He's competed in the Olympics and won three gold metals in snowboarding, holds the record for having the most X-Games gold medals, and has won 10 ESPY Awards. He's also an accomplished snowboarder and musician, and there's zero question this 33-year-old is a bigger success than most of us.

Since he's such an accomplished athlete, he's mingled with some of the biggest and best Hollywood stars. With his own status, he's been linked to some amazing ladies but overall, Shaun White's dating history is a relative mystery, which is surprising.

Shaun has been rumored to be dating several stars.

Back in 2008, Shaun was rumored to be dating or seeing TV star Elisha Cuthbert after they were photographed together. Neither of them confirmed the rumors and next time a rumor started about Shaun White's dating life, it wasn't confirmed either.

Rumors swirled about Shaun with mentions of a relationship with Summer Spiro, a 31-year-old actress who is now best known for her role in Westworld

The two were rumored to be together for four years, although there aren't any instances of either of them confirming their relationship in interview or on social media.

Shaun was then allegedly dating American actress Arielle Vandenberg, who is now best known for hosting the first season of Love Island USA. The two were linked and rumored to be an item in 2011, but again, other than a few photographs of them together, nothing was confirmed. 

In 2012, Shaun White was spotted kissing model Bar Refaeli at a bar in New York. A source told the New York Post at the time, "They were all over each other. They were dancing, hugging, kissing — you name it." Even if the source was correct, clearly being seen at a bar together doesn't mean they're dating, and these rumors of love fizzled pretty quickly.

There has only been one time that Shaun White has confirmed a relationship.

In 2013, Shaun started a relationship with Sarah Barthel, lead singer of the group Phantogram. During an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald in 2019, Shaun spoke about his 5-year-relationship with Sarah, one of the only times he's publicly spoken about her or anyone else he's been linked to.

"Sarah is a genuine and beautiful person. I travel so much and so does she, but we make an effort to keep it together," he said to the newspaper. "I’m not in the kids-and-marriage head space now, but one day for sure. I have learnt how to be a good friend by being with her. All my life it’s been about me and my work and my goals. It’s nice to hear about someone else and what they’re doing." 

It seems he's single again now and has recently been linked to another actress.

Earlier this year, in March, Shaun White was spotted hanging out with Nina Dobrev and her dog, while going for a bike ride. According to Page Six, the two were seen kissing that same day, however it was described as a "friendly" kiss.

On May 28, Nina was in a time lapse video on Shaun White's Instagram page where she could be seen cutting his hair. This hints to the possibility these two are a couple and might even be quarantining together.  

Shaun White's dating history is a bit of a mystery, really, and it's clear he tends to prefer his private life stay that way.
