The happy times comes off the heels of years of tough times with her ex Shannon Beador, 55.
David Beador & Shannon Beador Split
David Beador, 55, and Shannon Beador announced their separation in October 2017 after 17 years of marriage. Shannon caught David cheating on The Real Housewives of Orange County season 10, and filed for divorce in December 2017. The exes tried to make their relationship work through therapy and by renewing their vows, but they ultimately split. “After much thought and careful consideration, David and I have made the difficult decision to separate,” the Real Housewives of Orange County star told at the time. “We remain partners in parenthood and are committed to raising our three daughters. This is not the future we envisioned, and we kindly ask for privacy, especially for our children, during this transitional period.”
David and Shannon faced off in court for two years over various issues related to custody of their daughters — Sophie, Stella and Adeline — and finances. Things got real ugly with David going after Shannon in December 2018 by filing a request for an order prohibiting her from consuming alcohol eight hours before or during her time with their children. “The mother has publicly stated on television within the last month, she ‘self-medicates’ with alcohol,” he said in court documents. “That behavior is detrimental to the children.”
In April 2019, Shannon and David’s divorce was officially finalized. The deal gave Shannon $2,935 a month in child support and $7,065 a month in spousal support, totaling $10,000. Each parent will continue to share joint legal and physical custody of their teenage girls and agreed to not move outside Orange County with their three children — “The parties stipulate that it is in the best interests of the minor children to have equal contact with both parents.”
Lesley Cook Taunted Shannon
As reported, David post-divorce canoodle turned messy when Lesley brazenly inserted herself into David and Shannon’s custody struggle. But according to the girlfriend, David’s three daughters — Sophie, 16, and twins Stella and Adeline, 14 and her family are blending well. “David and Shannon’s daughters are absolute sweethearts, and my daughter adores them,” Lesley insisted. Lesley Cook not only nodded to the legal drama on social media, but lashed out at viewers reacting negatively to the splashy relationship. The couple split shortly after the social media spectacle — but it looks like David and Lesley have renewed their love story. Reportedly, Shannon has also moved on with a new beau.
Shannon Moved On
While David was busy getting engaged, Shannon Beador spent time with boyfriend, John Janssen and laughing on her Instagram story about “how old people wake up at night.” They started dating in July 2019 and seem very smitten with other based on all the photos they post on Instagram.
