Is Israel Adesanya Married, Taken, Or Single?

Truth be told, Adesanya is not married yet. If he did have a wife at the moment, the Internet would be going crazy, obsessing over the newly married couple. Alas, that’s not the case.

Now, talking about his relationship status; is he single or taken? Well, the answer to this is uncertain as well. Ever since his last “high profile” break-up, the kickboxer has kept his love life on the low. Furthermore, if we take a look at his social media handles, there aren’t any such posts that hint at him having a partner currently.

Regardless of this, there’s been a rumor of him having an affair with the Australian model, Shana Evers. According to multiple sources, the two of them might be in the “seeing each other” phase of their relationship. However, this is yet to be confirmed.

Israel Adesanya’s Rumored Relationship With Girlfriend Shana Evers

The rumors of Israel being in a relationship with Shana spread around September 2021. At that time, the model-cum-businesswoman posted a story celebrating the victory of her alleged boyfriend over Alex Pereira at UFC 287. Since then, fans have been longing to find hot gossip about the would-be duo.

Furthermore, with the UFC Middleweight Champion and Shana Evers also following each other on Instagram, the rumor has kept going to this date. Not only this, but as per some of her fans, she also posted an all-cozied-up picture with Adesanya which confirmed the rumors for a bit. Even more so, the ex-boxer also commented, “What did I miss?”, under her post.

Sadly, the post has already been deleted, so we do not know what to believe. Perhaps, because of how things went down with his ex, Israel Adesanya does not want to reveal what’s actually going on with the gorgeous model.

Adesanya’s Alleged Girlfriend Shana Previously Dated Fortafy

She’s also famous as the ex-girlfriend of the rapper, Fortafy. The former love birds had a long-term relationship. In addition, they also are parents to their daughter, Egypt, born on 25th February 2014.

Additionally, Evers also has a career of her own, for which she’s widely known. She is a model from Australia, as well as an entrepreneur. Moreover, she’s the owner of her own swimsuit brand, Salt Gypsy, and also founded, Women in Meta.

Israel Adesanya’s Ex-Girlfriends & Relationships

Previously, the fighter was in a rather short-term relationship with his girlfriend, Charlotte Powdrell. It is reported that the two of them got together in early 2019, parting away in mid-2020. Additionally, many also believed Powdrell to be Adesanya’s wife. But, to state the fact, the former lovers were never married.

Talking more about Charlotte, she is a native of New Zealand, currently working as a professional real estate agent for UP Real Estates. She uses her social media profiles to advertise her work these days. As per the sources, she also has a background in nursing.

Unfortunately, despite their efforts to act as a “happy couple”, the two of them had a very toxic relationship. After dating for almost a year, they parted ways; the reason is unknown to this date. However, that was not the end since Powdrell dragged Adesanya into court soon after.

He Had A Chaotic Break-Up With Powdrell; Details On The Court Case & More

Around mid-2020, the former duo decided to call it quits. But, they only became contactless after a year, in 2021.

According to the sources, Powdrell asked her ex-boyfriend for half of what he owed after the break-up. She believed that he made a big name out of himself during their year-long relationship and considered herself an important part of his successful journey. In turn, despite not being married to Adesanya, she demanded the kickboxer provide her with half of his fortune as compensation.

Israel Adesanya became furious with her demands. Following this, he posted a number of pictures on his Instagram story, announcing that he would take legal action against Powdrell. Additionally, he also publically humiliated his ex for asking for an untoward ask. He wrote in one of his stories,

“Also I really hope you lawyer up and come for my assets like you said, I hope you try affect my businesses such as Puma with your weak bitch threats. Please, please do so, let pay for it all, you have a sugar daddy now who will pay for everything.”

Although the official decision from the court is not known yet, we do believe that Adesanya got the justice he deserved; his ex-girlfriend, Charlotte Powedrell had no right to demand his wealth.

Does Israel Adesanya Have Plans To Marry A Wife Soon?

Definitely! According to the 33-year-old athlete himself, he does want to settle down and start a family real soon. More than anything, Adesanya is eagerly waiting to become a father. During an interview with the MMA Junkie, he revealed that he wants to become the “coolest” dad to his kids. Nonetheless, he wants to retire whenever he becomes a father so that he can spend most of his time with his children.

In that bargain, the family-oriented guy might not have a long career as a fighter. On top of this, if he is indeed dating Shana Evers at present, his retirement might come sooner than we’d expect.

Having said that, there’s no doubt that he will indeed become a good husband to his wife and a great father to his children. And when he does, we’re sure all his former fans will be there to support him.
