Apart from Kelly Slater, there are not too many professional surfers who are known by people outside the sports. While he was great at what he does enough to be known this much, one of the things that have added to his fame is the women he has dated thus far.
With more than ten world titles to his name, the pro surfer was born on February 11, 1972. He has grown to be one of the most popular names in the sports of surfing and he is also a very good-looking man, placing him as a suitable individual for dating. Rightly so, he has been in a good number of relationships in the past even as he is still yet to get married.
Even before the Kelly Slater dating story got known to the public, he had been involved with other women much earlier in his life. One of such was Tamara; almost nothing is known about her except that she gave to the Florida-born athlete his first and only child, Taylor Slater in 1996. It is not known for how long he dated Tamara or when they broke up.
Who Is Kelly Slater Dating?
While the Kelly Slater dating story did not start with Kalani Miller, it now seems as though it could as well end with her, as she is now the woman in his life. Not just that, they have both remained in each other’s lives for a rather long time.
Kelani was born on July 25, 1987, and growing up surfing, she has a lot with the man that she has come to spend many years with. The first time the two were linked was in 2008 after he had been in some celebrity dating which he said was simply blown out of proportion.
Sometime in 2016, it was rumored that Kelly had got Kelani engaged after she was spotted with a diamond ring on her left hand. What even fuelled the rumor some more was that it was shortly after a Down Under trip. More so, at the time, it was reported that the surfer was sighted shopping for an engagement ring.
Since then, nothing more has been heard about the two settlings down as man and wife. But then, they have maintained a good relationship with many still expecting that they may walk down the aisle any time soon.
Cameron Diaz (2007)
Before meeting and settling in a long-term relationship with Kelani, the sportsman who was named among the five coolest athletes of all time by GQ magazine dated another woman that many have considered among the sexiest women ever, Cameron Diaz.
The relationship between the two kicked off in 2007, shortly after Diaz and Justin Timberlake ended their relationship. Somehow, Kelly and Diaz did not get to last a long time as a couple; it all came to an end in the same year it started.
Gisele Bündchen (2005 – 2006)
Before Diaz, the woman that had her name inked in Kelly Slater’s dating life is the beautiful model, Gisele Bündchen who got into a relationship with the star surfer in 2005. Before they met, the Brazilian model born in 1980 dated Leonardo DiCaprio for quite a long time.
Unfortunately for the pair, the relationship did not get to last more than eight months before it came to an end in 2006. Interestingly enough, it was the same year that Gisele got to meet the man she would come to marry, Tom Brady.
The end of the relationship was said to have had its toll on Kelly as he was left distraught enough to force him to skip the premiere of his film, Letting Go.
Pamela Anderson (1998 – 2000)
Another woman that he dated even before he got linked to Cameron Diaz and Gisele Bundchen is Pamela Anderson. The surfer and Anderson who has dated men such as Sylvester Stallone, Bret Michaels, and Tommy Lee, began dating in 1998.
Pam and Slater made a rather nice couple and although things were not the smoothest for them, they managed to sustain their affair for two years before finally breaking up in 2000. The model would go on to date other celebrities such as Michael Bolton, Kid Rock, Laurence Hallier, Jullian Assange, and Adil Rami whom she got engaged to. So also, Slater would come to date others.
After the pair broke up, Kelly revealed in an interview that he had no grudges against the actress and model with whom he had an on-and-off relationship. Instead, he said he got to learn a lot from the relationship.
