Cara Santana and Jesse Metcalfe’s relationship has seemingly hit a rough patch. According to a report, the Salem actress, 35, was completely blindsided when news broke that her fiancé Jesse, 40, was spotted engaging in inappropriate behavior with other women over the weekend.
On Wednesday, January 22, photos surfaced on the internet in which the John Tucker Must Die star was seen with his arms wrapped around a tall blonde woman outside of the Attic bar in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood of Los Angeles. These snaps came just hours after Jesse was spotted holding hands with Hungarian model, Livia Pillmann.
Earlier that day, the Desperate Housewives star was all smiles as he was seen leaving a late lunch with Livia at Gracias Madre. After their meal, the two chatted for a while at the valet stand as Jesse waited for his car.
Cara was noticeably absent during Jesse’s weekend adventures. The couple’s last public appearance together was on Saturday, January 4 on the red carpet for The Art of Elysium’s 13th Annual Celebration.
Cara and Jesse have been dating since 2009 but took a break in 2011. In August 2016, the couple announced that they were engaged after nearly ten years of dating. Jesse proposed to the Vida actress during a cruise along the Hudson River off of New York City at sunset in a 50-foot sailboat.
During an interview with Hollywoodlife.com, Cara revealed that the two were in no rush to get married because they felt like they were already husband and wife. “The truth is we really have not set a date, but we are talking about it now that it looks like he’ll be wrapping up the final season of his series and we can make some time in our schedules to plan a wedding.”
Despite being engaged for five years, when questioned about wedding plans Jesse told Access Hollywood that they were “nonexistent.” “Wedding planning is nonexistent. I’ve been so busy … I’ve literally been out of town the whole year,” Jesse explained.
He added, “Cara has been incredibly busy as well … We’re kind of just doing things on our own schedule.”
