Tal Bahari Relationship Status Now
Tal Bahari is off-grid though he is on social media. But because it is private and he shares almost no information about himself, not much is known about his dating life at this moment.
Meanwhile, Paulina has moved on. She has been dating Mike Shouhed since July 2018. They had their first date in Taco bell and sat there for hours until a security guard came and said, “You guys are having a lot of fun”.
Since then, a lot has happened, from Mike’s “sexting scandal”, to him apologizing publicly, to moving in together under the same roof, and finally getting engaged. He said, “I actually asked her son his permission to marry his mommy, and I gave him the ring, and we were in Hawaii, and I planned with the concierge where the most beautiful part of the beach was gonna be”.
In August 2021, the couple announced their engagement in the wake of a cheating-sexting incident. While dating Ben-Cohen, Shouhed was accused of exchanging lewd texts with another lady. After initially denying the accusations, he finally accepted it in May 2021.
“We were going through COVID, being on lockdown, and I let the anxiousness of going through that and just being bored allow me to do things I shouldn’t have done,” he stated to E! News. “Looking back, I feel really stupid for allowing myself to engage in that conversation, even though those text messages were for a few hours and one day that those messages happened, reliving it now feels like … like it was going on for a long period of time”.
The couple, surprisingly, didn’t sign a prenup at that time. Paulina said she didn’t feel comfortable signing one. “I would not marry someone if I felt that I need to protect myself”, she added. Paulina and Mike were sharing a house in Los Angeles that they had bought back in May as of August 2021. They appeared to be thinking about getting married and expanding their family at the same time.
In late March 2022, Mike made headlines after being arrested for domestic assault. PageSix reported that authorities detained him on 27 March for “intimate partner abuse with injury”. He was charged with felony corporal harm to a spouse or cohabitant and was freed after posting $50,000 bail.
According to the site, an LAPD public relations officer, “Shouhed was charged with corporal harm to a spouse or cohabitant, which is a felony, according to the sheriff’s department.” His accused victim has yet to be identified. According to Page Six, Shouhed’s attorney, Alex Kessel said that his client rejects all of the charges.
