In a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen, Lukas Gage, the rising star from Road House, shared candid insights into his whirlwind relationship and brief marriage to renowned hairstylist Chris Appleton. Only 28, Gage surprised fans with news of his fast-paced romance, which began and concluded within a year.

During the interview, Gage addressed his current single status, humorously noting that his dating life currently revolves solely around himself. This came after Cohen expressed astonishment over Gage's rapid transition from dating to marriage.

Reflecting on his decision to tie the knot so swiftly, Gage described the experience using vivid terms such as “manic” and “absolutely unhinged.” He said, “I had a manic episode for six months. Those jackets, those furry jackets…”

The unconventional wedding, officiated by none other than Kim Kardashian, saw Gage and Appleton donning fur coats in a Las Vegas chapel, marking a memorable moment in celebrity wedding lore. Looking back on the experience, Gage stated, “What happened to me? I don’t know, literally, what went through my head. But we live and we learn.”

Further probing from Cohen brought up the topic of Gage's divorce, which made headlines shortly after an episode of The Kardashians featuring their wedding aired. Amid swirling rumors of infidelity, he clarified, “there was no cheating. Oh god, Andy, there’s a three letter thing that I signed,” he then said, alluding to an NDA. “I plead the fifth!”

Gage offered a philosophical take on his brief marriage, admitting to his impulsive nature and jokingly predicting that this might not be his last walk down the aisle. “That was probably one of the most unhinged things I’ve ever done in my life,” he admitted, in a moment of self-reflection about his spontaneous decisions and their impact on his life trajectory.

Meanwhile, his ex, Chris Appleton, has moved on. He is reportedly dating art dealer Federico Debernardi.

According to TMZ, the new couple was first spotted together at the beginning of the month during the Oscars weekend, hanging out at Los Angeles’ landmark hotel, Chateau Marmont.

On 7 March, Debernardi posted a series of photos on his Instagram, including one outside the Chateau Marmont.

TMZ reports that Appleton and Harvard graduate Debernardi met through “mutual friends about a month ago” and are currently “keeping things laid-back” between them.
