Things have gone quiet between Sarah Jade and Dave Bautista. The pair that once shared everyday updates on Instagram and seemed really in love have since stopped sharing any updates and things have gone really cold. In 2019, Sarah deleted all photos of herself and Bautista from Instagram and the pair have not been seen together in their outings. Despite the air of uncertainty around them, nothing can be taken away from the fact that the pair enjoyed quite the time as a couple. But despite Bautista’s fame in WWE and then in subsequent movies, not much is known about Jade. So, for this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Sarah Jade.
Sarah Jade Claussen was born on the 12th of December 1987, in Bradenton, Florida, United States. Born and raised in Bradenton, Florida, Sarah is the only child in the family. An athletic kid, Sarah never limited herself to one sport and was involved in a series of them, including football. She also played the cymbals and was part of her hometown orchestra. On the academic side of things, Sarah matriculated from Bayshore High School in 2005. At the same time, her family’s business filed for bankruptcy and Sarah started working to save up enough money to go to college. In 2007, Sarah enrolled at the University of South Florida and graduated in 2011 with a BA in Sociology.
Sarah was interested in dancing from a very young age and started taking pole dancing lessons from renowned pole dancer, Zoraya Judd. During her break year in 2006, Sarah began working as a bartender in one of the local strip clubs. During her time as a bartender, Sarah was impressed by the dancer’s physique and the art of dancing as well. So, she started watching prominent pole dancers including Karol Helms and Alethea Austin, and learned while still at university. After her graduation in 2011, Sarah established a pole dancing studio, Buttercup Pole Dance. In coming up with the name of the studio, Sarah revealed that the inspiration came from her mother and grandmother.
“My great-grandmother, grandmother, and my mom owned an antique store from the time I was 4 years old until I was about 17. It was called Buttercup Cottage. And I wanted to pay homage to the three generations of female business owners before me.”
Sarah also won the title of Most Athletic Pole Dancer in the Pro Division of the Florida Pole Fitness Championship, for two consecutive years in 2012 and 2013. She continued her fine run in championships throughout the years and in 2016, nabbed the title of Miss Pole Dance America. In the same year, Sarah was also announced as the brand ambassador for several events including Pole Show L.A., the Florida Pole & Aerial Arts Showcase, Ink-N-Iron Showcase of the Stars, and a few others. Sarah also represented Grata Designs’ fitness wear as a brand ambassador and elite athlete.
Not much is known as to how and where Sarah Jade met Dave Bautista. They first came to public attention after tying the knot in October of 2015. While the pair often took to Instagram to share their day to day updates, things have since taken a backseat. Despite the married tag, things don’t seem to be perfect between the pair. As of 2019, Jade deleted all the photos of herself and Bautista from Instagram and was seen traveling to Las Vegas in June 2019. Although the pair is said to have estranged they have successfully concealed the details of their separation. For now, it is not known if Saran and Bautista are going through the divorce process.
