Who is Travis currently dating?

With no official Facebook or Twitter to speak of, and a rarely updated Instagram account, gathering information about the actor’s private life is very difficult!

Rumours about his relationship with actress Paula Patton circulated for a couple of years – however since their movie Witchcraft came out in 2016 the pair haven’t been spotted together.  

The now 43-year-old American actress made her feature film debut in the 2005 comedy Hitch alongside Eve Mendes and Will Smith. Following the suggestions she and Travis were an ‘item’ she has since been linked with Zach Quittman and Alijah Allan-Blitz.

She has since appeared in Déjà vu, Precious and Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol.

Paula shares a son named Julian with Robin Thicke. The couple began dating in 1993 and divorced in 2015 around the same time as Warcraft was filmed.

Neither Travis nor Paula ever confirmed their relationship. However, the Aussie actor did comment on how easy it was to work on his sizzling chemistry with Paula who played on-screen love interest Garona in the project.

“Oh yeah. If you saw her in real life…Yeah, pretty easy,” he told Newscorp.
