So, is Casey Anthony married?
Since being at the center of what many deem “the trial of the century,” Casey Anthony has kept a low profile. Therefore, it’s unknown if she is or has ever been married. Nevertheless, we do know a bit about her past relationships.
According to In Touch Weekly, an 18-year-old Casey was engaged to her then-boyfriend, Jesse Grund. She was pregnant with Caylee at the time, and for most of the toddler’s short life, Jesse acted as her father. However, Casey eventually revealed that Jesse wasn’t Caylee’s biological father, while a DNA test soon confirmed her revelation.
Casey says she got pregnant after being raped at a party. Once she realized Jesse wasn’t the father of her baby, Casey refused to tell him the truth — why is that? Well, she never fully explains her decision.
“I let Jesse believe the entirety of my pregnancy that he was the father,” Casey admits in the upcoming docuseries, per In Touch Weekly. She expresses regret and acknowledges that it was selfish not to tell him, adding that she “lied to everyone” about the identity of Caylee’s father.
Casey dated Tony Lazzaro at the time of Caylee’s disappearance.
At the time of Caylee’s death, Casey was in a relationship with Tony Lazzaro. The two met just weeks before the toddler’s sudden disappearance. According to ABC News, Tony admitted he and Casey met through Facebook when he was a college student and party promoter. He added that he would ditch school to spend time with Casey early on in their relationship.
During the trial, Tony testified that he and Casey immediately hit it off and that he soon developed a relationship with Caylee. He also stated that Casey never mentioned Caylee’s disappearance, adding that her character hadn’t changed while the 2-year-old was missing.
Tony also recalled one of the trio’s first meetings in which they relaxed at his apartment building’s pool, declaring that he saw Casey discipline Caylee like “any mother would do” when she got too close to the pool.
