Steve Willis and Michelle Bridges-Relationship timeline
The relationship between Steve and Michelle dates back to 2007. The two had met on the sets of the show The Biggest Loser. But both at that time were dating different people.
But they split from their respective partners for some reason and started a romantic involvement with each other in 2015. In December 2015, the couple welcomed their son Axel.
But their relationship was not a smooth one. They used to have frequent arguments. And in May 2019, Woman’s Day had carried an article that the couple most probably would split. An insider had told the media outlet:
‘The relationship has become increasingly toxic in the past 12 months,’
‘They are constantly bickering over everything, from work to parenting to what to have for dinner.’
And in January 2020, Michelle confirmed her breakup with Steve. This was after the law enforcement authorities arrested Michelle for drink driving in a car in Australia. Her son Axel was with her at that time.
Michelle admitted at that time that her actions cannot be excused. But she also revealed her helplessness when she disclosed that she was in an emotional turmoil due to her recent breakup.
