How bombshell Aussie star made a Hollywood agent smile again after his wife ran off with Jeff Bezos
Patrick Whiteshell had his heart broken by Lauren Sanchez when she ran off with one of the richest men in the world, Jeff Bezos.
But the multimillionaire Hollywood agent finally got the last laugh after finding love with Australian bombshell, Pia Whitesell.
Patrick, 58, and Pia, who is 18 years younger than her husband, secretly tied the knot in 2021 after going public with their relationship two years earlier.
While they’ve been tight-lipped about their relationship, the pair have been inseparable — with the gorgeous actress regularly posting sweet and wholesome content with her beau on Instagram.
Pia is a household name in Australia. The model turned actress is best known for her role on the long-running soap opera Home and Away, playing Senior Constable Katarina Chapman on the show from 2015 to the 2018 season finale.

But Pia’s love life hasn’t always been a fairytale – the mother-of-two previously went through a highly publicized divorce from soccer star Brad Miller, which was soon followed by a failed engagement to a Sydney businessman.
Before becoming a household name in Australia, Pia was a teenage mother who welcomed her first son at the age of 19. In 2003, she gave birth to her eldest son, Isaiah.
In 2005, she met AFL legend Brad, the man who became her first husband.
The couple seemed to be living a happy life together, with Pia giving birth to their son Lennox in October 2006. The following year, she married the retired Richmond player.
