John Cusimano’s relationships
Rachael’s husband John Cusimano is a Rurouni Kenshin: Wandering Samurai producer.
John Cusimano was dating Ali Solomon in 2004. But they broke up within 2 months.
In 2005, he started dating Rachael Ray. He claimed that it was love at first sight. They had met at a mutual friend’s birthday party. Rachael had said in an interview:
“We walked directly across the room to each other … my husband and I have been together on the phone or in person every single day since the night we met.”
Rachael thought that John was gay before talking to each other. She said in an interview,
“He told me what he had made himself for dinner the night before, and I assumed that if you’re not a chef and you made what he told me he made, that he was gay.”
They got married on 24 September 2005. The wedding was solemnized at Castello di Verona in Italy. There was a renewal ceremony that took place at the same Tuscan Castle, Italy in October 2015. They do not have any children so far.
However, their marriage has been endangered many times in the past and it was linked to John Cusimano’s rumored infidelity.
John’s cheating rumors
In January 2013, National Enquirer published claims that John has been visiting Checkmate, where only couples and single ladies are allowed. He was spotted with a lady who was not his wife.
Some sources said that John has been spotted at the Manhattan, New York club at least on 6 occasions. All 6 times, he was not accompanied by his wife but was with a different female escort every time.
John, of course, denied the claim and released a statement that said:
“This is yet another pack of lies printed by the National Enquirer who have been targeting John and Rachael for several years with no merit. As noted in the story, John’s lawyers have been in contact with the Enquirer and are exploring legal action against the publication for defamation.”
Two years after the marriage in 2007, there were reports in the leading tabloids that their marriage is on the rocks! Rachael Ray had said during one of her shows:
“Everybody gossips… but this stuff is hurting people’s feelings who are in our families and friends of ours. They worry about us.”
Their spokesperson however even at that time had denied the rumors and said that the couple is happy together.
