Find out more about his relationship with partner Matt Lashey and his past affairs.
Richard Grenell’s Relationship with partner Matt Lashey
Richard, as we mentioned above already, is an openly gay man, and has been in a relationship with Matt Lashey, the CEO of Treatment Technologies & Insights for quite a few years now.
We assume that Richard who is also known as Ric is one of the highest ranked gay men in Trump’s administration which might be the reason why he has kept his personal life so secretive.
However, in 2014, Matt tweeted a picture of the duo and shared that it has been 12 years since they started dating. Meaning that as of 2018, they have been together for more than 15 years.

There are no details about when the couple started dating or when they met, but the duo has made numerous public appearances together and even appeared on Fox News together to talk about Chemowave, an app that helps chemo patients take control of their treatment. The lovebirds developed the app over three years and spoke about it in 2017.
Watch the pair on Fox talking about Chemowave.
Moving along, the pair does not seem to share many pictures of each other on their socials, but Ric indeed loves to share photos related to his personal life on his Instagram. At first sight, it may seem like he has children but the children seen on his Instagram are his niece and nephews.
It is just shocking how the pair have not decided to adopt a kid, but Ric owns a dog named Lola whom he takes with everywhere he goes and treats her like his child.
Moreover, the only thing remaining in their relationship is them to get married and take their relationship to a whole new level which would be incredible.
Richard Grenell’s Past Relationships and Affairs
Ric has kept details about his current relationship under the wrap perfectly, and we highly doubt that he would take any chances to leak details about his past affairs.
There is no information about whom the Ambassador to Germany dated in the past or had a fling with which is completely normal.
