Jason Reitman's relationship status and his love life: All Details here!
Jason Reitman is a Canadian-American filmmaker and actor, who is known for his notable works like Thank You Smoking, Juno, and Young Adult, but these days, Reitman is gaining momentum as the director of Ghostbuster's sequel, Ghostbusters Afterlife; its prequels, Ghostbusters, Ghostbuster II, were both directed by his father, Ivan Reitman.
Reitman, 44, was born to Ivan, a Canadian film director and screenwriter, and his wife, Geneviève Robert, on October 19, 1977, in Montreal, Quebec. Jason, who grew up a movie geek, started his career in showbiz as a filmmaker and soon branched it to become an actor. A Golden Globe and a Grammy winner, Reitman's decorated career is no secret, but the actor hasn't had the same luck in his romantic life.
Jason Reitman's relationship status and his love-life!
The two-time Academy Award-nominated filmmaker has experienced a hard-luck in his romantic endeavors, maybe because of which the Thank You for Smoking director is still single years after his unsuccessful marriage. Reitman was 23 in 2000 when he started dating his next-door neighbor, writer Michele Lee.

After a year of dating, the couple collaborated on a few projects. While the couple dated and even after marrying, both Reitman and Lee kept their relationship away from the limelight. They co-wrote the comedic short film Consent in 2004, the same year the duo tied the knots. Michele also holds credits in Reitman's celebrated works like Up in the Air and Uncle Sam.

Reitman's wife welcomed their firstborn, Josie, two years after their marriage in 2006. Just like the couple tied the knots furtively and went about their life the same way, there was very little buzz when the two decided to call it quits after 10 years. Citing irreconcilable differences, Reitman filed for divorce in June 2011 at Los Angeles County.

Though the Juno director appears to have very little experience with women, Reitman has probably learned to refrain from love after his worse experience. The actor was 16 when he fell in love with a woman 10 years his senior. The teenage Reitman even moved in with her, and the two were in a live-in relationship for the next 7 years.
