Lane Kiffin’s Previous Marriage and Divorce
Before we discuss Lane Kiffin’s current relationship status, let’s briefly review his past marriage and divorce. Lane was previously married to Layla Reaves Kiffin, daughter of former NFL quarterback John Reaves. They tied the knot in 2004 and have three children: Pressley Kiffin, Landry Kiffin and Monte Knox Kiffin.
But their marriage did not last; they announced their separation in 2016 after 12 years together. Although no official reason was provided for their split, speculation suggests it may have something to do with Lane’s frequent job changes and reported affairs with other women. Their divorce was finalized in 2017 with Lane agreeing to pay Layla $10,000 monthly in alimony and child support payments.
Lane Kiffin’s Rumored Relationship with Jennifer Dardano
Lane Kiffin was linked with several women following his separation from Layla, but none were officially acknowledged by either himself or his representatives. One particular woman caught the attention of both media and fans: Jennifer Dardano is a USC graduate working as both a real estate agent for Douglas Elliman Real Estate and account executive for Palm Beach Media Group as well as being certified Medical Esthetician and self-declared advocate of rescue dogs.
Lane Kiffin and Jennifer Dardano first made headlines in 2017 after going out on their first date at Wishing Well Irish Pub in Boca Raton, Florida. Since then they have been seen together at numerous occasions – such as attending football games, going on vacations or celebrating holidays together – including attending football matches, vacationing together or posting images to their social media pages showing affection or showing solidarity towards one another.
However, despite all evidence of their romance, neither Lane nor Jennifer have confirmed they are dating or engaged. When approached by a reporter in 2019, Jennifer simply stated that Lane was one of her “good friends”. Additionally, in 2021 after an Mississippi State fan tweeted about it she denied allegations she was expecting his child.
Jennifer Dardano was previously married to Anthony Dardano, a plastic surgeon who specializes in facial reconstruction and cosmetic surgery.
