Chris D’Elia marries Kristin Taylor over sexual misconduct allegations

Chris D’Elia and his longtime girlfriend, Kristin Taylor, tied the knot last weekend – amid the comedian who has faced several allegations of sexual misconduct in recent years.

The couple shared photos of their wedding on Monday via their respective Instagram accounts.

“Stronger now,” D’Elia, 42, wrote on his photo slideshow.

Taylor, 29, wrote alongside hers: “6.18.22. D’Elia is forever.’

The couple’s son Calvin, whom they welcomed in 2020, took part in their big day.

It appears that D’Elia and Taylor have been dating since 2018. The actress posted her first photo with the comedian in June of that year.

A year later, she announced their engagement with a selfie showing her ring, captioned: “The fullest heart 💍.”

Taylor revealed in December 2019 that she and D’Elia were expecting their first child, and six months later, the “Undateable” alum was accused of preying on underage girls online.

A woman named Simone Rossi claimed that D’Elia “groomed” her when she was 16 and he was 34, before getting together with Taylor.

Another woman named Abby Grills? shared screenshots on Twitter of a conversation she allegedly had with D’Elia via Facebook in 2011, in which he allegedly chased her when she was just 17.

D’Elia denied the allegations, saying in part: “All my relationships have been both legal and consensual and I have never met or exchanged inappropriate photos with the people who tweeted about me.”

However, the stand-up strip felt the fallout from the women’s claims and his agency, CAA, dropped him as a client in June 2020.

Later that year, more allegations against D’Elia surfaced. Actress Megan Drust accused him of exposing herself to her in 2011, and a woman under the pseudonym Jane Doe filed a lawsuit alleging that D’Elia had asked her for porn when she was 17 in 2014.

The “You” alumnus said in a statement at the time, “I know it looks bad, and it doesn’t show the full scope of what happened,” before reiterating that his “relationships were consensual and legal,” but “sex ruled my life.”

During this time, Taylor stood by D’Elia’s side, often sharing family photos of the couple with their newborn son.

On Valentine’s Day 2022, D’Elia posted a photo of him and Taylor, captioning it, “Having someone who stays with you everywhere, even if she thinks you farted, but it was the dog I promise.” Happy Valentine’s Day, honey.”

D’Elia was previously married to actress Emily Montague from 2006 to 2010.
