'Beyond the Edge': Is Lauren Alaina married? Here's a look at her dating history
Country music superstar Lauren Alaina made a name for herself in 2011 after coming in second on Season 10 of 'American Idol' and hasn't looked back ever since. Alaina has used her fame and stardom as well as her music to raise awareness about important issues like eating disorders. She will be one of the several celebrities to compete on CBS's survival reality show 'Beyond the Edge'. In the show that lives by "survival of the fittest", each celebrity is challenged to endure and live in the most difficult of surroundings.
It sure seems like Alaina is doing a lot in the entertainment industry as well as giving back to society. What's the dirt on her personal life? For starters, Alaina used to be engaged to her then-boyfriend, actor Alex Hopkins, who she started dating in 2012, at 17. The couple announced their engagement in 2018 but then announced their split on Twitter in less than six months. Read on to know more on this front about the singer.
The Twitter statement read, "We want to let you know that we have decided to call off our engagement. While we still have love for each other, we've grown into very different people over the last six years. We are now in a place where we are each looking forward to starting our own fresh, new chapters of our lives. We both love and respect each other and hope you all will do the same. This has not been an easy decision, but we both feel it is the right decision".
After her split with Hopkins, Alaina was in a relationship the following year with comedian John Crist, from May to September in 2019. Unfortunately, their relationship ended shortly before she was cast to compete on 'Dancing With the Stars'.
Post their breakup, Crist was accused of sexual misconduct by five other women. Alaina has never offered a public comment regarding the matter.
Today, the singer is living her best single life, thriving in her singing career, as happy as she can be.
'Beyond the Edge' premieres on March 16, 2022, on CBS.
