Shawn Rodriques is Amanda Du-Pont’s ex-husband and also a South African businessman and financial manager who celebrates his birthday every January 29th.
Unlike Du-Pont, who has spent the majority of her life in the public eye, Rodriques only began to be recognized by the general public after he got connected to the celebrity media personality. He has, however, done well for himself and is quite accomplished in his own way, aside from the once-beautiful relationship he had with Amanda.
How Old is Shawn Rodriques, and Where Was He Born?
Shawn Rodriques was born in South Africa and celebrates his birthday on January 29th each year. His place of birth and year of birth are not known to the general public. He was born to white South African parents, although he hasn’t made their identities public.
It’s unclear whether Amanda’s ex-husband is an only child or not because nothing is known about his upbringing and family. Apart from his work and personal life, he currently keeps other elements of his life out of the spotlight.
Amanda Du-Pont’s Ex-Husband is a Businessman
Shawn Rodriques is a businessman and financial manager who is currently employed as a finance manager in a company with its headquarters in Johannesburg.
It is challenging to ascertain the nature of his business and how long he has worked as a financial manager because Amanda’s ex-husband has never discussed his employment in public.
Regardless, based on some of the things he posts on his Instagram feed, he appears to be succeeding in his work. He clearly has all the pleasures he can afford yet living a modest and comfortable life.
Amanda and Shawn Have Since Ended Their Marriage
Amanda and Shawn Rodriques are no longer married. The businessman’s main source of popularity was his relationship with South African television celebrity Amanda Du-Pont. Their relationship skyrocketed him to immense popularity and also made him a subject of tremendous curiosity to the general public.
The former lovers made countless public appearances together and also went on lavish trips after they made their love known to the world. They served relationship goals and provided plenty of romantic inspiration at the peak of their romance.
One of the most romantic moments of Du-Pont and her ex-husband’s brief marriage occurred in 2020 when they appeared together on the cover of the local publication House & Garden.
The Cause of their Divorce is still Shrouded in Mystery
While many people have shown no interest in Amanda’s short-lived marriage with her ex-husband, a lot of people are still curious to know what led to the dissolution of the once-beautiful marital relationship they had.
Amanda only went public with her relationship with Shawn after the latter proposed to her in a beautiful engagement ceremony in the Maldives in July 2018. She declined to share their love story, such as when and how they met and how long they dated before their engagement.
The pair had a secret wedding in 2020 which Amanda confirmed many months later while writing a heartfelt tribute to her grandmother, who had wished to attend her marriage before her passing.
Reports about the former lovers facing challenges in their young marriage surfaced online in October 2022 when they deleted each other pictures on their respective social media accounts.
Du-Pont started attending events without Shawn by her side and also underwent surgery without her ex-husband’s support. Later that year, the couple separated, and it was revealed in January 2023 that they had divorced.
While the couple was still married, Amanda was accused on several occasions of cheating on her man. She never denied or addressed the rumor, which made a lot of people believe she was guilty.
Currently, no one is certain of the type of connection that exists between Shawn and Amanda since they called it quits because neither of them has publicly confirmed their divorce.
Who Has Shawn Rodriques Dated?
The history of Shawn Rodriques’ past romantic relationships is not widely known. The businessman recently had dinner with South African fitness and fashion enthusiast Charelle Johnson, which suggests that he has moved past his failed relationship with Amanda.
Controversial entertainer Musa Khawula shared Charelle’s Instagram post of the pair’s outing. She simply captioned the picture ‘Date Night’ and also tagged Shawn Rodriques.
