Renee Portnoy Married life & Divorce with Husband
Renee Portnoy and her ex-husband David Portnoy got married in 2009. They had an engagement one year earlier in 2008.

The internet started buzzing with rumors, and David took to his blog to lay down the facts.
David announced that he was no longer with his wife in January of 2017 on his blog, giving his fans a mini heart attack. It is because the readers of Barstool Sports very much loved Renee as she was the founder’s wife. As aforementioned, they had even affectionately named her their First Lady.
David then revealed that he and his ex-wife had parted amicably, and they were cordial with each other. Moreover, he also told us that he was seeing another woman. The other woman was Jordyn Hamilton. It would only be the start of David’s relationship dramas.
After a while, David again took to his blog and waged war upon Jordyn Hamilton. He accused her of cheating on him. As it turns out, Jordyn was cheating on David with her instructor at Soul Cycle. David’s fans rallied behind him and poured their wrath upon Jordyn, Soul Cycle, and her instructor.
Renee appears to be in good terms with her ex as she still retains his last name, Portnoy, in her Instagram. She also shares David’s blog posts on her social media. Moreover, she still lives in the mansion that David had purchased in Nantucket. The estate is worth a cool $2 million. Maybe the sun will rise upon them one day, and they may resume their relationship.
It is worth mentioning that the couple did not bear any children during their relationship.
