Shannon had begun gravitating toward beauty pageants in her more youthful days, partaking in pageantries and beauty contests.

They again started dating for nearly one and a half years. Later, they got engaged for eight months then tied the knot on November 11, 2014, in La Romana, Dominican Republic. Meanwhile, the couple stayed in Miami throughout their marriage.

On December 18, 2016, Marc Anthony filed for divorce after two years of marriage. 

There was a prenup. Although the marriage had lasted only two years with no children involved; divorce wasn’t too complicated. Decidedly, the LA Mansion they bought together was soon up for sale.

Besides the financial compensation, prenup included a confidentiality clause that both Marc and Shannon had signed. 

Lima and Anthony finally settled the divorce after Marc agreed to pay $10,000 a month for the upcoming three years, totalling $360,000 as long as Shannon did not marry those three years.

In addition, Anthony also signed over two of his luxurious apartments to the model located in the city of Miami. On February 13, 2017, the court finalised their divorce.

Rommy Gianni (Ex-boyfriend)

Rommy Gianni is a polo player, founder and captain of the Monaco team. 

Surprisingly, De Lima shared a brief fling with him during the impasse of her awaited divorce. Afterwards, Shannon and Rommy were photographed several different times together on the beaches of Miami.

Canelo Alvarez (Ex-boyfriend)

Canelo Alvarez, also known as Saul Alvarez, is a Mexican professional boxing champion.

Shannon and Canelo were spotted sharing a very public kiss in New York, four months after De Lima’s divorce: the model also confirmed their relationship in an interview.

Even so, unfortunately, what seemed to be a budding passionate romance quickly came to an end.

James Rodriguez (Ex-boyfriend)

James Rodriguez is a 30 years old Colombian Football player. He plays for Qatar Al Rayyan as an attacking midfielder and winger. Or, you might also recognise him from Real Madrid’s club: he previously played from 2014 to 2020.

Even though James and Shannon first met in Miami in September of 2018; they only confirmed their relationship later in 2019. Next, the same year, the couple also announced the birth of their first son together through surrogacy.

However, after going together for three years, rumours of their separation broke out. Subsequently, the absence of Shannon in multiple celebrations of James, including their child’s 1st birthday, hinted at their break up. Sadly, Shannon and James are not together.

Speitzer and De Lima’s romance first began away from the prying eyes. Then, before they knew it, the relationship caught the attention of many. 

Among the conjecture about their relationship, the couple soft-launched their romance through Instagram posts. Shortly, both arrived hand in hand on the red carpet of the Premios Platino 2022.

No sooner do the flames of their romance seem to have died down. Granting, Speitzer avoided Shannon’s topic in his recent interview. Hence, the speculations about their separation might hold some weight.
