Tate and Jennifer Aniston were dating when she was at the peak of ‘FRIENDS’. They got engaged and had commitment rings. There were rumors about their wedding and Aniston called Donovan as the perfect guy. Three years later, Donovan’s father announced to the public that his son has split with Aniston. He said that the reason for the breakup is the hiked status of Aniston and the almost stagnant career of Tate.

The same scenario happened with Sandara Bullock too. They both got engaged and three years later, they broke up the engagement. They met on the sets of the movie, Love potion number 9. There was no indication of why this relationship broke up, initially. Later, there was a rumor that Bullock did not date Tate and they just had a date together and Tate date raped Bullock when she was unconscious, due to tequila shots. She did not press any charges or tested as she was very embarrassed. 22 years later, she talked about this incident and said that it traumatized her for many months.

As a matter of fact, Sandra and Tate were not dating and they just went out for a couple of drinks. But, later, Tate announced that he got engaged to her. He threatened her to keep the rape, secret with verbal threats. It is also said that he stole one of her dogs. This was considered to be a rumor by most of the people, but neither Sandra nor Tate denied or approved this rumor. Sandra once stated that Tate chased her like a dog and then dumped her and described it as the greatest love of her life. These comments contradicts the rape story and thus, it is considered to be a rumor.

His marital life was also short lived. Tate filed for the separation stating irreconcilable differences as the reason. He paid Corinee, 55 thousand dollars as a one time payment. They had no children together. Tate got to keep the house and other possession and denied the rights of Corinne for further financial support. This was a very easy and simple separation settlement. Was Corinee guilty of something? There were no rumors about any secret affairs or extra-marital boyfriends. The most shocking part is that she did not argue with her husband for any of those settlements.

As per the media, he is not dating anyone, as of now. He is not seen in public with a date that can be rumored to become his love life. There were a few rumors that Tate was gay, but, there was no proof to support the same.
