Wife, Girlfriend, Daughter
Guess you are wondering if the amazing actor is married or not? Well, the answer isn’t farfetched. Although he has become a prominent figure in the American film industry, his personal life isn’t as popular as his career. He is one of those who are not so open about their personal lives. However, he was previously in a relationship with late Christine Dolce. However, their relationship didn’t last long before it hit the rocks.
Dolce otherwise known as ForBiddeN was an American cosmetologist, best known for being MySpace celebrity during the mid-2000s. She is of Italian and Irish ethnic descent. Dolce appeared in different commercials for Playboy, Axe Deodorant, and the game Def Jam: Icon. The duo had a brief relationship in 2013 and in 2017, following her excessive intake of alcohol, Dolce was said to have died of liver failure.
Soon after his break up with Dolce, Zak Bagans started dating Ashley Mallete whom he later engaged in 2014. He posted several pictures he took with Ashley on Twitter in 2014; however, nothing much was heard about their engagement till date. Also, Bagans hasn’t shared so much information about his personal life lately; he has preferred to keep it on the low and it will be hard to ascertain if he is in a current relationship or not.
Apparently, he is not yet married and doesn’t have a daughter too. He has a dog called Gracie; which he adopted from Nevada Society in a bid to support the prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
