Olivia Culpo showed her appreciation for Christian McCaffrey via Instagram on Wednesday.
Culpo is a model and active on social media. She regularly posts to her Instagram Stories, which is where she paid tribute to him. Culpo posted a photo of the Carolina Panthers running back and captioned it “hot boyfriend appreciation story.”
That’s pretty nice.
Culpo, 29, is a beauty queen and won Miss Rhode Island, Miss USA and later Miss Universe. She is familiar to sports fans for all the relationships she has had with athletes.
In 2012, Culpo was seen hanging out with Ryan Lochte. In 2015, she dated Tim Tebow until reportedly dumping him. Next she was on-and-off with former New England Patriots receiver Danny Amendola.
Since about 2019, Culpo has dated McCaffrey. They have been together at least two years, and Culpo is very clearly “hot” for the Panthers star.
It has been just over two months since Olivia Culpo confirmed she had broken up with NFL wide receiver Danny Amendola, but it appears the couple has gotten back together — for at least a weekend.
TMZ shared some photos that show Amendola and Culpo standing next to each other at a wedding over the weekend, and sources told the publication that the two were “kissing, hugging, and hand-holding” at various points throughout the night. Amendola was part of the wedding party and Culpo went as his date.
Culpo seemed genuinely heartbroken when revealing that she had split with Amendola back in May. The actress and model was very public with her support of Amendola during the New England Patriots’ run to the Super Bowl last year. Culpo is from Rhode Island, and Amendola left the Patriots in free agency this offseason and signed with the Miami Dolphins.
Social media activity is what initially tipped people off about the Amendola-Culpo split. It’s possible the two simply went as dates to a wedding and are not back together, but time will tell.
If you were one of the many people who felt that Danny Amendola and Olivia Culpo were one of the best couples of 2018, we have some bad news for you — Culpo has confirmed that the two are no longer dating.
In an appearance on “Access Hollywood” on Wednesday, Culpo was asked about her relationship with Amendola.
“We are broken up,” she said. “It’s just so fresh for me that I really don’t feel comfortable talking about it. Everybody goes through breakups in their life. Everybody has their own way of handling it. It’s something that I’m not going to get into at this moment, but I’m sure everyone can relate to heartbreak.”
Culpo, who is a model and former Miss USA, shared a lot of supportive photos and messages for Amendola during the New England Patriots’ postseason run last year. Speculation that the couple broke up began growing when Culpo unfollowed Amendola on Instagram recently, which might as well be the kiss of death for a relationship in 2018.
Amendola signed with the Miami Dolphins this offseason, and the breakup took place not long after that. For what it’s worth, Culpo is from Rhode Island. She reportedly dated a different one-time Patriots player before Amendola.
Recent Instagram activity from Danny Amendola suggests he and Olivia Culpo may have broken up.
Amendola unfollowed Culpo on Instagram, which is a typical sign of problems in a relationship. Barstool Sports personality Fran pointed that out and added that Amendola also deleted photos of the two together.
Amendola and Culpo were dating for around two years according to reports. The Providence Journal reported in January that the two met on the street in Hollywood, Calif.
Culpo, a model and former Miss USA, was extremely supportive of Amendola and attended many of his games. She posted this after the Patriots clinched a berth to the Super Bowl.
Amendola is no longer with the Patriots after signing with the Miami Dolphins in free agency.
Prior to Amendola, Culpo was reportedly dating a different one-time Patriots player.
There’s something about being a star player on the New England Patriots and dating a model. It’s like a law. You have Tom Brady and Gisele; Julian Edelman who dated Adriana Lima; and then there’s Danny Amendola and Olivia Culpo.
Amendola and Culpo have been linked for nearly two years. Amendola told the Providence Journal that the two met when they bumped into each other in Hollywood.
“I met her on the corner of Hollywood and Vine, just walking down the street and we bumped into one another. It’s crazy,” Amendola told the Providence Journal.
He also told the newspaper that what he likes about the former Miss Universe is how supportive she is.
And if you don’t understand what he means when he talks about her being supportive, just take a look at this:

Interestingly, Culpo was previously linked to Tim Tebow before dumping him.
Tim Tebow and Olivia Culpo have reportedly broken up after dating for a brief period. The supposed reason why the relationship ended will not surprise you.
According to the New York Daily News, Culpo decided to end things with Tebow after telling friends she “can’t deal” with the former NFL quarterback’s decision to not have premarital sex.
“She had to break up with him because she just couldn’t handle it,” a source reportedly told the Daily News “He still hits her up, but she just can’t deal with the sex thing. He’s pretty adamant about it, I guess.”
Culpo, a former Miss USA who does modeling work, must have thought she could get Tebow to stray away from his values. If some of the girls Tebow has been linked to in the past couldn’t get him to change his mind, we’re not surprised Culpo was no exception.
Did Tim Tebow rebound with model Olivia Culpo after the Philadelphia Eagles dumped him?
According to a report from Us Weekly, Tebow and Culpo were introduced to each other by a mutual friend back in September and have been seeing each other since. Culpo, a former Miss USA who does modeling work, was dating singer Nick Jonas earlier this year.
“Tim’s super into her,” a source reportedly told Us. “It’s very new, but he thinks she is a goddess. He’s very attentive and writes her sweet notes all the time.”
Culpo has also been linked to a famous U.S. Olympic swimmer in the past. Tebow, who has said that he takes the same approach as Russell Wilson when it comes to sex in a relationship, has typically kept his personal life under wraps. Aside from when he dated actress Camilla Belle a few years back, we haven’t heard much about girlfriends he has had — if there have been any.
As The Big Lead notes, it seems like there are rumors about Tebow dating every attractive woman he takes a photo with, but there aren’t any photos of him with Culpo on social media, which makes it an even more interesting rumor.
Tebow must have chosen not to take Chip Kelly’s advice for improving his game. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have a whole lot of time for a former Miss USA.
While the world for some reason waits for Ryan Lochte to find a girlfriend, we may finally have a contender. The NY Daily News recently reported that Lochte was at a party hosted by shoe designer Brian Atwood at the Four Seasons restaurant last Wednesday where he met Miss USA Olivia Culpo. As you can see, the two posed for a couple of photos together. Lochte also stopped for a picture with Donald Trump, who owns the Miss Universe Organization.
“Things are still very new, because they just met, and they obviously aren’t exclusive,” says an insider, but they “definitely like each other.”
“Everyone was trying to get a piece of Ryan at the party, but he spent a chunk of his time talking to Olivia,” says a second source. That source claims Lochte invited Culpo to his “Guys Fashion’s Night Out” event at Ainsworth Park restaurant last Thursday, but Culpo was already booked, so they reunited at the Sherri Hill show Friday.
A spokeswoman for Lochte cautioned that it is “too early” to say that he is dating Culpo, noting that they have been getting along and have gotten to know each other but are “not dating.”
Now that the Olympics have ended, Lochte might actually have time for a girlfriend instead of just one-night stands like his mother previously stated. Lochte has already laid out specific guidelines for what he looks for in a woman, so time will tell if Culpo meets the requirements. Unless, of course, he tells her about the stupid phrase he tried to trademark and she decides she’s had more than enough.
