As a singer and actress who has become a Hollywood sensation, the This Is Us star took off right after her debut in the music and film industry. While her first single Candy landed at number 41 on the Billboard Hot 100, she also made a big entrance into the film world with her acclaimed role as the dying girl in the 2002 film A Walk to Remember. With such an impressive resume to her credit in the entertainment world, there’s no question why we’re all interested in hearing the latest news about Mandy Moore’s dating timeline.
Although her relationship with Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith seems to have been at the heart of her love story, there were other amazing men before the musician took her by storm. In fact, not only has Moore had many relationships in the past, but she has also married one of her love interests. Read on for all the juicy details about Mandy Moore’s dating timeline.
Mandy Moore Dating Timeline: Past Boyfriends and Relationship History
With music as her first love, it is a small miracle that the singing experience has found love several times in the arms of musical artists. But she is not only attracted to musicians, as the following list shows.
Wilmer Valderrama (2000 – 2002)
Their relationship can be described as back and forth, but when it finally came to an end, there was a somewhat sad note around them. It wasn’t funny when Wilmer talked about sex with Moore on Howard Stern’s show. The actor who probably deflowered Mandy said “The sex with Mandy was good, but it wasn’t like warm apple pie. ” That comment wasn’t well-received by Mandy. Regardless, they fixed things up and are now in a good place, but definitely not an issue anymore.
Brian McFayden (2001 – 2002)
The MTV VJ entered Mandy Moore’s dating timeline after working with the singer – they hosted the “Miss Teen USA” contest in 2001 and several MTV events, including New Year’s Eve 2002, and there were rumors that they were dating, but it could just be a joke, as Moore, who was only 17 years old at the time, refuted the allegations and said Brian was too old for her. He was 25 years old at the time.
Billy Crawford (2002)
If we take Billy at his word, they were together for at least a year, but according to Mandy the connection was very quick and lasted only a few weeks. Anyway, we just know that it happened and that it started and ended in 2002.
Andy Roddick (2002 – 2004)
Mandy proved that she is not only into people in show business by meeting the American tennis player who is also a Grand Slam champion. Mandy Moore became his girlfriend just in time to cheer him on as he struggled on the court to win the 2003 U.S. Open. Unfortunately, it had to come to an end, but they have nothing but good words to say about each other.
Zach Braff (2004 – 2006)
They met at an event of the Creative Artists Agency and could not deny the connection, but obviously, Happy End was not in the picture. They seemed to have a very good time together, but their breakup was hard because Mandy struggled with depression afterward, but it didn’t last.
Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein (2007)
Fortunately, Mandy Moore’s dating timeline was not greatly affected by the depression she suffered from in 2006. She and DJ are dated for several months before going their separate ways. Apparently, their breakup was amicable, as they remained good friends even after that. When DJ AM survived a plane crash in 2008, Mandy was at his side in the hospital. Unfortunately, he died prematurely in 2009 after an accidental drug overdose.
Greg Laswell (2007)
Mandy met the producer and musician through a mutual friend the same year she ended her affair with DJ AM, but like a candle, in the wind, their affection for each other burned out. Shortly after, Mandy began her relationship with Ryan Adams, who would later become her husband.
Ryan Adams (2009 – 2016)
Mandy and the former Whiskeytown frontman had been dating since early 2008, and although Ryan denied it at first, he put a ring on her engagement finger in February 2009. Their wedding took place on March 10, 2009, in Savannah, Georgia. In January 2015 came the divorce – filed by Mandy Moore, who cited “irreconcilable differences”. Court documents showed that they had already been separated as they had been six months before things became official.
Taylor Goldsmith (2016 – ???)
Before their divorce from Ryan was finalized in 2016, Moore and Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith were already conquering the hearts of social media as a couple. They got engaged on September 23, 2017, and we can’t wait to see them in a wedding dress again.
