Dax Shepard Dating History:
Dax Shepard and Briegh Morrison
In the early 2000s, Dax dated Briegh Morrison. We don’t know much about her, but IMDb says she worked as a crew assistant on the 2008 movie Pride and Glory. Not much is known about their relationship, but Dax did say that their breakup made him think about his other relationships and lifestyle choices.
Dax talked to Ashton Kutcher about his divorce from Demi Moore on an episode of his podcast Armchair Expert from 2018. After Ashton spilled his tea, Dax said that he joined AA after his breakup with Briegh. He also told her that he had apologized to her so many times in the last few years that she had asked him to stop thinking about the bad things.
In 2004, Dax started to get help for the problems he was having. “I loved to get high on anything: alcohol, cocaine, opiates, marijuana, diet pills, pain pills, anything,” he told Playboy in the past. “Jack Daniel’s and cocaine were my two favorite things.”
He was also linked to Olympic figure skater Tara Lipinski and actress Kate Hudson after his relationship with Briegh ended. Dax and Kate have talked about their short-lived relationship, but not much is known about his relationship with Tara.

Dax Shepard and Kate Hudson’s Relationship
In 2019, Dax and Kate talked about their past relationship on an episode of Armchair Expert. The A-listers confirmed that they first met at actor Tobey Maguire’s house in the early 2000s when they were both in relationships.
But in 2007, they were both single and decided to meet for dinner. “While we were there, we asked, ‘Wouldn’t it be funny if we came out holding hands and I was your new boyfriend?’ “I remember that,” Dax said during the episode. “We were just pals. …Then we added, “Wouldn’t it be great if her new boyfriend didn’t wear a shirt at Nobu?” “,” he said next.
Their plan went as expected. That night, pictures were taken of Kate and a shirtless Dax, and the media began to speculate.
In fact, their little prank brought them closer together, and they started hanging out more. “Then I wanted to have sex with him,” Kate said. “It seemed like the best thing to do.”
She went on to say that they were “super compatible” and “laughed [they’re] asses off” together, but that they broke up because they were “in different places in our lives.”
Dax also said that when he was dating Kate, he felt “less than” her. “I think I was just at the point where I wasn’t going to get hired for movies anymore—I had a bunch that didn’t work—and I was like, “I don’t f—-ing know what’s next,” and you were making the most money you ever had and had the most opportunities at that time.”
Kate said she was “making choices that were not relationship-focused” and “wasn’t giving Dax what he needed.” She said, “It was so much fun, but it got hot so fast, and I wasn’t ready.”
Kate and Dax were a good couple, but we think Kristen and Dax are even better. After things with Kate didn’t work out, Dax started dating Kristen, and the rest, as they say, is history.
