A look back at their relationship
Parker met his ex Ashley Youle in Australia where the couple got along pretty well. He invited her to spend time with him in North America. In the beginning, the couple had no idea where the relationship was heading eventually the two had a thing for each other and fell in love. In an interview with Channelguidemag, Parker described his relationship with Ashley; she did not mind hanging out or even put forth hand in gold mining.
“She’s super easygoing, which is what you need out at a place like that. Ashley just rolls with the punches and helps out where she’s needed. If we need her to drive trucks she’ll drive trucks. She ended up cleaning gold a lot of the summer or helping do fuel things or whatever we needed her around the place. She stayed busy and tried to stay out of my way when I’m in rage mode. Yeah, it was fun. It was a good summer. I’m really glad Ashley was there for it.”
The relationship took Parker to Australia where he spent Christmas and New Year with Ashley. Even their marriage rumors made headlines in tabloids. Though seemed unlikely here we are witnessing the break up of the couple in 2018.
