We hardly know, what the devil is going on in Ty Pennington’s life. The American television host, artist and carpenter, was hugely popular as the host of ABC’s former hit show ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’. But lately it has been pretty difficult to figure out what is happening in his life.
We all know that the TV host was dating his longtime girlfriend Andrea Bock. Besides being his partner she was also said to be his manager.
Back in 2008, the couple revealed that they had been together since 11 years. Now, it has already been 18 years. And you see, 18 years is a pretty long time. After two years, the pair will celebrate the two decades of their relationship (if they are still together).
There have been several rumors regarding the couple’s relationship. Back in 2008, it was said that the famous carpenter was found cheating on Bock with a stripper.
Many online bloggers and entertainment sites claimed that the man was caught hooking up with a striptease dancer. The scandalous rumor outraged his fans and it was believed that Pennington’s manager girlfriend broke up their decade long relationship with him.
There are countless people who hardly believe in any of the tittle-tattle about the Ty’s cheating and his split with his lover. They claim that the television personality is still with his girlfriend and they are planning to turn their love into marriage.
While on the other hand, there are those who claim that the couple has indeed separated and the reason behind it was not just his alleged perversion. It is believed that Pennington, who was arrested on suspicion of DUI in 2007, underwent a hectic legal process and had to pay a heavy amount of $5,000 for bail.
According to reports, his blood alcohol level was .14 while the legal limit in California is .08. He later apologized but the ill was done. It is said that, it was after this incident that the love duo started having problem in their love life.
Bock being his manager was responsible for everything he does but his behavior left her heartbroken. The incident with the stripper added more fuel to their already crumbling relationship. And when things started going out of hand, the couple decided to end it.
In an interview with the Parade magazine back in 2008, the spiky haired couple was asked if they had any wedding plans any time soon. The couple answered, “Not married, but we’re still together. We’re definitely a team.”
Andrea stated, "We don't need to get married. We're having such a good time now."
Afterwards, the gossipmongers very firmly stated that the couple’s refusal to get married was a hint towards their falling relation. But, there are still who feel that the reason behind the pair’s decision to not get hitched was, that they were already living as husband and wife.
So what might be the truth behind all this? Are they still together or have they actually split? We don’t know yet but if they are still together then we’ll surely find out pretty soon.
Despite everything, Ty Pennington has a pretty cool life. He promotes his shows on his Twitter account. He has an estimated net worth of $10 million and he receives a salary of $75,000 per episode.
