Popularity Through Marriage

Since the divorce, Lisa has continued to live a life away from the media buzz, but sometimes features in her children’s social media posts. Lisa currently lives in Beverly Hills, in a house she received as part of the divorce settlement. She hasn’t talked about her love life after divorcing Damon, but it’s believed that Lisa is single.
