Is Ellen Barkin Single? Who Is She Dating?

As of 2018, Barkin is single. Matter of fact, she has been single for a few years now, and the last person she was in a relationship with was Barry Levinson’s son Sam Levinson.

At the time she was dating him in 2011, he was 26-year-old, she was labeled as a cougar.

She even made many controversial headlines too. In June 2011, as per Daily Mail, she even moved in with the young man and started a live-in relationship.

However, the relationship did not last very long as they broke up just a year later and the rest is history.

After the split, she has not dated anyone nor are there any rumors about her romantic involvement with anyone.

Ellen Barkin’s Failed Marriages

Barkin’s first marriage was to Irish actor Gabriel Byrne. They started dating in 1987 and decided to tie the knot in the following year on 18th Sep 1988.

Their relationship seemed quite healthy externally as they did not only have a happy family of four but also made numerous appearances together in public which made us fall in love with the pair.

Their first child, Jack Daniel was born just a year after they tied the knot. Jack was born in 1989, and he is currently 29-years-old.

Likewise, three years after the birth of their first child, their youngest child, daughter Romey Mario was born on 18th November 1992. She is currently 25-years-old.

The family indeed looked happy, but things were not the same internally as, after 11 years of being in a marital relationship, the pair divorced from each other in December 1999.

Moreover, before her divorce with the first husband was finalized, she had already started dating her future husband Ronald O. Perelman, who is an American born professional businessman.

Just after a year of dating, they tied the knot on 28th June 2000. She does not have any children with the businessman, and things seemed to have gone downhill with time, and their marriage ended in a very messy divorce.

Their marriage lasted almost six years until they filed for divorce in Feb 2006. There was a lot of controversy between them regarding money, and at the end, Barkin took $20 million from her husband.

But later on, in 2007, she again sued her ex-husband claiming $3.4 million which he had previously promised to invest in their film production company. She eventually received a sum of $4.3 million.

These are not her only relationships; there were many other affairs which did not make it to marriage. She has also dated men like David Arquette, Ralph Fiennes, Matt Dillon and many others.
