Scott Grimes, 45, is single at present but he was married for almost a decade in the past. Grimes was married to Dawn Bailey 1997 to 2007.

Grimes and Bailey got married on 5 May 1997, two years after which the couple became parents to their first child, a daughter named Madison. Their daughter was born in April of 1999. Grimes also shares a son with his wife. Their son Jackson Richard was born in September 2001.

Grimes had never spoken much about his married life. Thus, it came as a surprise to his fans when he announced his separation with Dawn Bailey. They are divorced since 2007. Not only the reason behind Grimes’s divorce but his past affairs are also hidden from the media.

Scott Grimes might not have been in the limelight for his relationships but he has surely made the headlines with his philanthropy. 

Scott has been praised a lot for the humanitarian efforts that he has made for his hometown Dracut. One of his most notable contributions was $40,000 to the Dracut Public School which was raised in a period of 14 months from only 3 concerts. Besides, he actively participated in the Dracut Firefighters Charity Golf Tournament which was organized for the benefit of Dracut Food Pantry and the fundraising program of Dracut Performing Arts Boosters’ 2012. 

Talking about his connection with Dracut, Grimes said in an interview, “There is something about Dracut… but over these last 30 years I have had this weird, ‘I need to get back to Dracut’ feeling. So two years ago I decided to do this golf tournament for Mark Morowski and the Dracut Food Pantry…”

In another interview with starrymag.com, Scott revealed that he does not do charity for just being at an event or evading taxes but he does it honestly to help people in need. He further added, “I just want to do it as a human being helping another human being. I love to work with disabled kids and the homeless.”
