Jimmy Garoppolo Has a Secretly Scandalous Dating History
Jimmy Garoppolo is a name on everyone’s lips as the San Francisco 49ers’ quarterback came up just short in the Super Bowl. While plenty is known about the athlete’s professional friendships, career ups and downs, his Italian family, and athletic stats, he has managed to be fairly secretive when it comes to his dating history.
As much as he has tried to keep things under wraps, he has still managed to stir up some controversy and gossip about his love life. Let’s take a closer look at who the quarterback has dated and why he might be one the most sought after bachelor in the NFL.
Jimmy Garoppolo is at the top of his career
Garoppolo began his ascent in NFL history with a scandal that wasn’t his own. In the 2015 season, the New England Patriots were forced to play without their star player Tom Brady. Brady was facing a four-game suspension because he was involved in a scheme that became known as “Deflategate.”
With their shining quarterback sidelined, the Patriots turned to then-23-year-old Garoppolo to fill in the gap. They had originally brought him onto the team as a second-round draft pick back in 2014.
While there was some discussion of the Patriots grooming Garoppolo as a potential replacement for Brady upon retirement, his future with the Patriots was short-lived. He was traded to the San Francisco 49ers in 2017 in exchange for the 49ers’ second-round draft pick. Even though the team clearly valued their new quarterback to make such a trade, they waited a whole month to start him in a game.
Once he got into the rhythm of the team, however, he proved to be an unstoppable force, bringing the 49ers out of a serious slump and securing the NFC Championship for the 2019 season. Unfortunately for Garoppolo and the 49ers, things didn’t go their way in the Super Bowl.
Garoppolo didn’t have his best game, and some critics are even suggesting the team should look for another quarterback. It’s unfair to judge him on one bad performance, and he’s still one of the favorites to win the NFL’s ‘Comeback Player of the Year’.
A secretive love life
This newfound fame has put Jimmy Garoppolo under unprecedented scrutiny. He wasn’t used to having his personal life put under a microscope, and he was quick to keep things under wraps whenever tabloids tried to get a closer look at his dating history.
He was linked to model Alexandra King back in 2018. While Garoppolo claimed they were never an item, they were spotted together at Disneyland and were even captured on camera sharing a kiss. Garoppolo made an appearance on King’s Instagram feed on Valentine’s Day, and fans were fairly certain the two were an item.
In the summer of 2018, Garoppolo had a well-document fling with adult film star Kiara Mia. Although it was never confirmed if the two had a serious relationship, the buzz brought on because of the fling surprised Garoppolo. Since then his love life has been kept under wraps.
What makes Jimmy Garoppolo such an eligible bachelor?
It’s no secret why Jimmy Garoppolo is such a coveted bachelor. He’s a star NFL quarterback with a $36 million salary. Garoppolo also enjoys steady income from his sponsorships with brands like Nike and Bose. Clearly money isn’t an issue for him.
Despite the wealth and fame, he appears to enjoy being single. In fact, according to his own family, Garoppolo isn’t really interested in dating at the moment. He’d rather focus on his career and family instead. This type of focus on his job probably had a lot to do with the 49ers making it to the Super Bowl.
His 49ers teammate mike McGlinchey echoed this fact when he said: “The position kind of glamorizes everything, and Jimmy doesn’t want any of that.”
It really seems like Garoppolo is a down to earth guy with a lot going for him. There’s no doubt when he’s ready to date, any girl would be lucky to have him. But for now, the world will have to wait.
