Personal Life

Alex Pall is unmarried and has no children. Currently, he is single after a recent break up with his girlfriend, Tori Woodward. The couple started dating in February 2014 and separated on 16th January 2018 after Pall cheated on her.

Pall was captured kissing an unknown lady by CCTV at his resident. His former girlfriend posted the snaps on her Instagram writing,

They’ll look you in the eyes and tell you they love you. Then destroy you without a second thought.

Along with the snaps, she also posted several messages like,

After hours begging him for scraps of honesty I chipped away just enough to confirm that this is not the first time he’s remorsely [sic] cheated on me,” wrote Woodward. “That ‘psycho bitch’ from Vegas, the ‘lame Instagram model’ caught on video and countless others he looked me in the eyes and swore on his life he never touched. Consistent outright denial faded to him explaining that because all men do it, it’s not that bad. And in different words, that because he’s famous now, he had a different rulebook for decency.

What’s perhaps the most amazing is that he HASN’T EVEN APOLOGIZED.

Whereas Pall, long silence after splitting up spoke to TMZ,

It’ll be good to get out of the country. She deserves the best. I wish nothing but the best for her. She deserves a better guy than me.

He further added that he felt guilty and miserable after the breakup and public shaming.
