Paul Teutul Sr. and ex-wife Beth Dillon

Early Life and Career:

Beth Ann Santos was born on the 8th of September 1957. Apart from her date of birth, not much is known about Santos, and details on her education, parents, and siblings have never been talked about in the media. Most of Santos’s life before meeting Paul Sr. is a mystery. Not much is known about her professional career as well and while she was proficient with the wrench in her few outings with the Orange County Crew it is not known if she works in custom shops or has some automotive background.

Marriage and Rise to fame:

Long before she tied the knot with Paul, Santos was married to Burton Dillon. She took up Dillon’s last name and while the pair didn’t stay together for long, she still goes by the name of Beth Dillon. The pair had two children together but ultimately ended up splitting when things didn’t work out. She met Paul Sr. sometime during the mid-2000s and the pair began dating almost instantly. On July 29, 2007, the pair got married at their home in Montgomery, New York. The wedding was attended by 130 guests and featured on the season premiere of American Chopper in the fall of 2007. 

Beth became the stepmother of Paul’s four children from his previous marriage: Paul Jr., David, Cristin, and Michael. She also appeared in some episodes of American Chopper alongside her husband and his sons, who worked at his motorcycle company.

Divorce and Moving on:

Beth and Paul’s marriage was not smooth sailing, however. They faced several challenges, such as Paul’s bankruptcy, legal disputes with his sons, health issues, and addiction problems. They also had different lifestyles and personalities. Beth was more reserved and private, while Paul was outgoing and flamboyant. Eventually, the pair ended up calling the marriage off in 2015. Given the pair’s stance on their relationship and the fact that they never went public with it avoided any unnecessary attention from the pair. Around the same time, American Chopper had been off the television for three years. The pair never released a statement about the divorce and went their separate ways. Since the split, Beth has maintained her silence and has not been on the media a lot. She is yet to re-marry and has since disappeared from the series altogether.

Paul, on the other hand, has since moved on with not just the series but his life as well. According to several sources, Paul is in a relationship with Joan Bulger-Kay, and the duo takes time off their busy schedule riding motorcycles and rescuing dogs.
