Timeline of Matt LeBlanc’s star-studded relationship after shock breakup

Friends star Matt LeBlanc has more in common with his iconic character Joey than some might know — with the actor.

As Joey Tribbiani on Friends, Matt LeBlanc was the ultimate ladies’ man, leaving New York women swooning over his famous catchphrase, “How are you?”

The 54-year-old actor was also popular with women off-screen, with rumors dating Jennifer Aniston, porn star Jenna Jameson, teenage Kate Hudson and British actress Minnie Driver. The sun reports.

The actor has separated from his Top of the line producer girlfriend of six years, Aurora Mulligan – who is 17 years her junior – this week.

Last year the ‘smitten’ couple appeared to be doing well, with Matt telling Graham Norton they were living together in London.

He said, “It’s half and half. I have an apartment here with my girlfriend, but my home is in Los Angeles.

A source said the couple had a ‘clean breakup’ but it’s still ‘very raw’ with Matt taking the news ‘particularly hard’.

It’s the latest in a series of long-term romances that have failed to last the distance.

It could be that he takes after his father, whom Matt described as a “ladies’ man” who was married “eight, nine, 10 times.”

Here, we’ve taken a look at the actor’s love life and dating history…

Marathon sex sessions with Playboy Playmate

For three years in the 90s, Matt enjoyed a passionate relationship with Playboy Playmate Tonya Poole.

And Tonya was very complimentary about his lovemaking – drawing comparisons between Matt and his on-screen persona.

In a conversation with The sunshe revealed, “Matt is everything a woman could want and more.

“With him, making love is a question of quality, not quantity. He takes his time to woo and seduce you.

“He would run me huge deep baths and gently massage every inch of me with oil. Or we would have long, hot showers together.

“Matt loves having sex and it’s the best. When he focuses his big dark eyes on you, you feel like his whole world revolves around you.

“I have an English friend who told me his name should be Matt LeBonk. When she explained it to me and I told him, he cracked up. He thought it was hysterical.

Tonya recalled how she and Matt had sexual “marathons”, having sex up to four times a night, and having fun on the beach so often that they had a “favorite cave” which had “incredible acoustics “.

Date with teen Kate Hudson

Around the same time he was dating Tonya, Matt, then 28, was spotted in a bar kissing Kate Hudson – who was 17 at the time.

Neither has ever confirmed or denied anything that happened between them.

Real Housewives star ‘disgusted’

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Star Brandi Glanville said she dated Matt – but was “too bummed” to kiss him because he let his dog lick his ice cream.

At Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohenshe said: “It was disgusting.

“I’m not going to kiss you after I lick your ice cream and feed it to your dog. I was like 20, by the way.

In fact, Brandi was so discouraged that she went out with Matt’s Friends co-star David Schwimmer for three months instead!

Rumor has it that a fling with Jennifer Aniston

Matt and his dad Paul don’t seem to have a good relationship – things went sour when Paul claimed his son had secretly ‘kissed’ with his Friends co-star Jennifer Aniston.

The two vehemently denied the claims of an on-set fling, but Paul insisted Matt bragged about kissing Jen.

“He even had a relationship with one of the girls…Jen,” Paul told OK! UNITED STATES.

“[Matt] got along well with Jen. He told me about it – they were kissing in the locker room.“

But Jen’s publicist shot back, “Jennifer has never had a romantic or sexual relationship with Matt LeBlanc.”

Sudden split

After a series of short-lived relationships in the 90s, Matt seemed to have found “the right one” with model Melissa McKnight.

The two were introduced by Kelly, then-wife of Lou Diamond Phillips, and after just a year of dating he popped the question and they married in Hawaii in 2003.

They welcomed their daughter Marina, now 18, the following year.

The couple faced every parent’s worst nightmare when Marina was diagnosed with a rare brain disorder called cortical dysplasia when she was eight months old. Fortunately, with treatment, she made a full recovery.

But the couple’s marriage didn’t go so well, allegedly because of Matt’s wifey ways.

When they separated, it was reported that he abruptly left the family home.

“It was very sudden,” a friend of Lou’s told People at the time.

“She was completely blindsided by what happened.”

Cheated with lapdancer

Matt later admitted that an encounter with Canadian lapdancer Stephanie Stephens in 2005 was partly what led to the end of his three-year marriage.

Matt told the National applicant that a strip club was “not where a family man should be”, but went on to claim that the dancer was partly to blame.

“She was in my face, pushing her breasts against me and grabbing my hands to go all over her body,” he said.

“She was telling me to pet her, and in my head I’m like, ‘What’s going on?'”

Joey’s co-star relationship

Matt later dated his Joey co-star Andrea Anders, who played his on-screen love interest in the spin-off show.

Ironically, she continued to play Friends star Matthew Perry’s love interest in the short-lived TV series Mr Sun.

“Isn’t that nice? she joked at the time.

“I’m just gonna slowly work my way through the cast of Friendseven if I can’t convince Jennifer Aniston to return my calls.

They seemed happy throughout their eight-year relationship, but split in 2015 after Matt was allegedly seen cheating on her at a Halloween party in Austin, Texas.

Void on text

Several women have claimed to have had affairs with Matt, including actress Holly Magrath, who says she met him in 2010 when she was an extra in Episodes.

She claimed their date lasted three weeks and Matt gave her champagne, confessed he had a girlfriend but told him it was ‘on-off’ and Holly was his perfect wife .

The couple reportedly spent two nights together in their hotel suite and exchanged dozens of text messages for a week before meeting again for a third affair.

According to Holly, Matt called time on their relationship in a text message that read, “I can’t see you anymore. Too much drama for me.

She told the Daily mail“Matt is an amazing guy. He was lovely, very down to earth and very normal. There’s a sincerity and warmth to him and he would look me in the eye for hours.

“But after constantly flattering me, he stopped responding to my texts and didn’t make a date. I was annoyed when he called things off, but not heartbroken. I knew he was only in London for a short time.
