Who is Matthew Rondeau? Shanna Moakler's boyfriend denies cheating on her amid daughter Alabama Barker's claims
'Our love is real. We had our ups and downs in the past but never have we cheated on one another,' said Rondeau
Alabama Luella Barker, a 15-year-old teen Instagram star, has accused her mother Shanna Moakler's boyfriend of cheating on her mother. Matthew Rondeau is the boyfriend that Alabama is referring to, and he is the man that Moakler has spoken quite highly of as being supportive as well.
Speaking about him, Alabama said, "Matthew is nothing but awful to her. Not only that, but he cheats on her. My mom has never completely been in my life. Can you guys stop painting her out to be an amazing mom?"
Who is Matthew Rondeau?
Matthew Rondeau's Instagram bio says he is a model, actor, chef and poker player. He is being repped by MMG and has shared pictures of himself with Moakler on his Instagram grids. They seem to have also done a shoot recently together for an advert. Recently, reports also stated that Moakler and Rondeau are not together anymore as she was spotted with Oscar De La Hoya. A source was quoted by ET as saying, "Shanna Moakler and Matthew Rondeau recently broke up, deleted photos of each other off of their Instagram accounts and unfollowed each other."
It was this source who said, "Last Thursday night, April 1, Oscar De La Hoya and Shanna Moakler were seen in Pasadena at Maestro Mexican Restaurant for dinner and later at Mi Piace Lounge for drinks looking happy together."
However, this was in April and things seemed to have changed since then as Rondeau posted pictures with Moakler, one of which he captioned, "My other half ❤️ @shannamoakler." To this Shanna responded, "I love you. 💕 #yours."
Both Moakler and Rondeau also responded to Alabama's claims that he cheated on Moakler who was an absent mother. Moakler said, "Co-parenting is hard, but I have always and will continue to prioritize my children's happiness and well-being," and added, "I refuse to involve them in a vindictive parenting competition where feelings are bound to get hurt. Encouraging relationships with both parents is a duty on both mother and father." She also said, "I know one day my children will see through the fame and money machine they have been thrust into and realize their mother loves and will always be there for them."
Rondeau told Life & Style he “never” cheated on his girlfriend. "Our love is real. We had our ups and downs in the past but never have we cheated on one another," he said. He also spoke about the kind of mother Moakler was and said, "She’s an amazing mother, and I am with her because she loves and cares so much about her family. That’s just one of the reasons why I love her so much." He also said that he looks forward to a future with her and said, "It’s really sad that things have gotten to this point between her family and her ex-husband Travis."
