Who Is Jillian Michaels Dating? New Details On Her Girlfriend Deshanna Marie Minuto After Split From Long Time Girlfriend

After being involved in a relationship for what seemed like forever, Jillian Michaels — best known for her star turn on The Biggest Loser — is rumored to have a new girlfriend. Who is Jillian Michaels dating?

"Their relationship comes a little over a year after Michaels and her fiancé Heidi Rhoades called it quits. “You’ve been with me through it all so I’m sharing some news with you…Heidi and I have been split for a while now,” Michaels wrote on Instagram on June 2018. “We’ve found we’re better friends and parents living apart than staying together,” reported the outlet.

3. This is Jillian Michaels' first serious girlfriend since her split from Heidi Rhodes. 

According to Yahoo, Deshanna is Jillian's first serious girlfriend since her split from Heidi Rhodes, to whom she was previously engaged. 

"The longtime couple got engaged during an episode of Michaels’ E! reality show Just Jillian in 2016, after the fitness guru popped the question in a private movie theater. Michaels had already given Rhoades a ring, so she instead placed an engagement ring on her own finger during the proposal," they wrote.
