Personal Life

Afrojack dated socialite Paris Hilton while producing the follow-up to her 2006 debut album "Paris." In May 2012, it was reported that the couple had split up, with a source telling "RadarOnline," "Afrojack had moved into Paris' Beverly Hills mansion earlier this year, and the two got very serious. But Afrojack just wanted to have fun and not be exclusive with anyone. He is on the road practically every day performing in clubs all over the world, and he just isn't ready to settle down, whereas Paris is." Afrojack married singer Elettra Lamborghini on September 26, 2020, in Italy. Elettra is the granddaughter of Lamborghini founder Ferruccio Lamborghini. In 2017, Afrojack's ex-girlfriend Lauren Meditz filed a $25 million lawsuit against him, alleging that he had harassed her and that after their split, he had "failed to perform his part of the agreement by refusing to divorce his real and personal property assets for Meditz's benefit or render Meditz financially secure." Afrojack's lawyer called the lawsuit "absurd" and "nothing more than a shakedown of Nick van de Wall."
