Miami Dolphins wide receiver Danny Amendola will be getting support from his girlfriend, Olivia Culpo, who was cheering him on from the stands in Minnesota, when his team took on the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII. Unfortunately, Amendola and Culpo didn’t celebrate a win, and it appears they may have even less to celebrate together these days.
On March 23, it appears Amendola unfollowed Culpo on Instagram, leaving no trace of their relationship on his account. Culpo still follows Amendola and has photos of them together (as recently as March 10), but rumors of a split are plentiful.
Amendola and Culpo have been dating since 2016. The NFLer and the former Miss Universe winner first went public with their romance on Culpo’s Snapchat, but didn’t confirm that they were dating straight away. People were quick to notice someone that looked like Amendola on Culpo’s Snapstory. The picture wasn’t totally clear, but a shirtless guy wearing a Patriots helmet was standing next to Culpo, who was also wearing a Patriots helmet. It didn’t take fans long to figure out that Amendola was the only Patriots player that Culpo followed on social media. You can check out the Snapchat photo here.
A couple of weeks later, Culpo posted a Boomerang, making her new romance Instagram official — and letting everyone know that she and Amendola were indeed dating.
Over the past couple of years, Amendola and Culpo have spent quite a bit of time getting to know each other. Culpo, who is a Rhode Island native, has been on-hand to support her beau at several Patriots games, including Super Bowl LI in Houston and the AFC Championship game on January 21 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
Likewise, Amendola has been on-hand to support his girlfriend over the years. In 2017, Culpo and her family opened a restaurant in Rhode Island called The Back 40. Amendola was there for the eatery’s soft-opening, which was very special for Culpo.
Additionally, Culpo is thought to be an influence in Amendola’s career outside of football; he landed a modeling deal last summer.
“Danny recently signed on as the newest Ford Model, a legendary modeling agency based in New York City. His signing makes Danny the first NFL players Ford Models has signed. We’ve seen Danny strike a pose in magazines, at red carpet events and at New York Fashion week, but signing on with Ford Models will only provide him with more chances to show the world what Patriots Nation has known for years: Danny can hold his own in the world of fashion,” the official website for the New England Patriots reported in July.
Amendola and Culpo have also spent a great deal of time on vacation, traveling to Bimini in the Bahamas, Bermuda, and Las Vegas, to name a few of their recent trips. Although Amendola doesn’t often share pictures of himself and his lady love, Culpo uploads pictures fairly frequently.
Below are some photos of Amendola and Culpo.
“My baby is Mr Clutch!!! Go Patriots,” Culpo tweeted, shortly after Amendola scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter of the AFC Championship game on January 21.
Before #NationalSelfieDay is over I need to dedicate a post to a few favorite selfies from this year with some of my favorite peeps of all time. These are the pictures I like to stare at when I'm bored or in a bad mood or sad and they immediately make me feel better. See, selfies aren't always narcissistic and selfish, right?!?!? Maybe??? Kind of???🤳 🤳 🤳 ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Culpo attended the Patriots ring ceremony held at owner Robert Kraft’s home back in June. She took to Instagram to share some photos of the event — and even got to wear her boyfriend’s new bling.
