Who is Shanna Riley?
Born Shanna Janette Riley on the 21st February 1983 in Salt Lake City, Utah USA, she is an internet personality, perhaps best known to the world as the ex-wife of the famous YouTube star Roman Atwood. Their marriage lasted from 2001 until 2010, ending after Shanna’s adultery.
Early Life, Family, and Education
Shanna spent her early years in Utah, but once she reached high school, she moved to Licking County, Ohio. Unfortunately, there is no more information about Shanna’s early life, such as the identity of her parents and whether Shanna has any siblings or not. However, undoubtedly, Shanna’s past will surface in the future and we will be the first to inform you about it.
First Meeting with the Popular Comedian, Vlogger, and YouTuber, Roman Atwood
The two met while in high school, and soon after commenced a romantic relationship. Roman was then just a regular high school student without even a slight hint that he would become a successful comedian. It took him years to achieve world fame, and before that he worked at his parents’ rope factory, Atwood Ropes. However, he started chasing his dreams in the early 2000s, and it was in 2006 that he had his big break; he sold out his self-made DVD called “The Nerd Herd” while on The Warped Tour, and the rest is history. He has become an internet sensation with a total of 25 million subscribers on his two YouTube channels. His videos have attracted more than 5.5 billion views, which in large part increased his wealth. Furthermore, Roman is a successful filmmaker, as he most recently made his directorial debut with “Natural Born Pranksters”, and he is an actor, currently working on a number of projects.
Popularity Through Marriage
Anyways, let’s get back to their relationship. The two first kissed in 1999, and just two years later they decided to tie the knot. If it wasn’t for Roman, we might have never heard of Shanna, since her initial vocation in life remains unknown to the present day, and the only thing she is known for is her failed marriage to Roman. Be that as it may, just 18 years old, the couple held their wedding ceremony on the 17th November 2001 in Licking County. In the next seven years, the two welcomed their first child, Noah Vaughn and were a rather happy couple, but Shanna’s adultery brought an end to their married life.
Divorce and Later Life
Shanna cheated on Roman with a guy who was a part of Roman’s production crew; back in 2007, while working for Roman, the same guy got drunk and pooped in Roman’s driveway. A year later, Shanna ended up being with that guy. At the time this happened, her husband was on vacation and wasn’t aware of the affair, however, once the news reached him, he immediately filed for divorce. After two years, their marriage was officially over in 2010, but the next battle between the two was for custody of their son. The court made the order that Noah would spend weekdays with his mother, while on weekends he would be with his father. Roman used Noah’s cuteness for his own purpose, including him in a number of his videos on YouTube, and once Shanna found out about it, she filed a lawsuit against Roman, as she wasn’t happy that Roman was making money partly through their son’s popularity. Unfortunately for Shanna, the court ruled in favor of Roman. Following the divorce, her ex-husband posted a tweet in which he says that Shanna is a bitch.

Since the divorce, every trace of Shanna has disappeared, as she has kept a low profile since then, and hasn’t been active on social media platforms either.
