Comedian and actor David Spade has led a private life, and people have always been curious about his love life. One of the women he was romantically linked with was Jillian Grace, but was she ever married to him? Here are details of the actor's dating history.


David Spade has never been married to anyone. That being said, it's difficult to know a lot about his romantic life because he has always been very private, hiding behind a jaded exterior that makes it seem like there is little he cares about.

In the past, when asked if he would ever settle down, Spade's answer was vague. He once said, "It's very hard for me, for various reasons, which we won't get into." However, he also admitted that he was trying to do just that.

Of course, this is not something he shares in his comedy routines because he believes that his fans don't want to know about that. "If I say, 'Yeah, I'm seeing someone, and it's going well,' they just go, 'Ugh,'" he elaborated in 2019. "I don't think that's what they want to hear."



Spade has been linked to several famous actresses. One of them is Kristy Swanson. She met Spade on the set of "8 Heads in a Duffel Bag," and they began dating. Later on, she said they were better off as friends.

Spade and Lara Flynn Boyle dated in the late 1990s until he found out she was unfaithful. Krista Allen arrived at the "Joe Dirt" premiere with Spade in 2001, but whatever they had did not last long as they eventually got into a legal battle over a reality show they both created. Spade then dated Julie Bowen from 2002 until 2003; he later confessed he messed up the relationship.


Brittany Daniel and Spade were co-stars on the "Joe Dirt" movies and dated for one year, with her saying they remained close friends after the split. The actor and Heather Locklear began seeing one another in 2006, but it ended after they both agreed that the timing was wrong.

In 2007 there were rumors of a romance with Pamela Anderson, but nothing was ever confirmed.

From 2008 until 2009, there were rumors that he and Nicollette Sheridan were romantically involved, but they both waved the speculations off. Charlotte McKinney, another "Joe Dirt" co-star, reportedly dated Spade in 2016.

Then there was the late Naya Riviera, and while sources reportedly stated that the two were seeing each other, there was no confirmation from either of them.



In 2007, Spade dated Jillian Grace, a former "Playboy" model born on December 20, 1985, who grew up in Washington, Missouri.

Her relationship with Spade lasted only a few months, but it led to the birth of their daughter Harper in 2008. To date, she remains the only child of the talented comic and the infallible evidence of his and Grace's short-lived relationship.

Spade generally keeps his daughter out of the public eye, but every now and then, he shares a glimpse of his life as a dad with fans on social media. He once admitted that becoming a father made him break off communication with his own dad.

His father had reportedly been mostly absent throughout his younger years, coming and going, leaving Spade to wonder when next he would hear from him. However, the two still maintained a relationship that even saw them live under the same roof in Arizona at some point.


All that changed after Spade became a dad and realized just how unfair his father's treatment had been. He once said:

"I have a daughter now, and she came out of a situation with a girl I was dating, and it was not planned, and I get angry because my brothers and I were planned. Now, I'm so happy that I have a daughter, and she's the best thing in my life, but I couldn't picture my daughter being sick and calling me and me not answering."

His resentment of his dad grew the more time he spent with his daughter, and eventually, Spade stopped talking to him.



The last mention of the actor's love life was in 2020, during the COVID-19 quarantine; he was apparently isolating in his mansion with an unknown girlfriend. Speaking to Page Six, he said:

“I’m dating someone now, It’s actually not a bad deal right now because it’s quarantine. I’m trying.”

Since then, it remains a mystery whether that relationship developed into something serious or if Spade is currently dating someone new.
