Nadine Caridi Became Jordan Belfort’s Ex-Wife After 14 Years – Inside Her Past and Present Marriages

If there is one thing you can always be certain about, it is the fact that if you live an eventful life and your story is interesting enough, someday, Hollywood will make a movie about you. Now, when your story combines the extremes of the absurd, the glorious and the glamorous, you are definitely guaranteed to make it into the blockbuster regions. This is evidenced in the 2013 film, The Wolf of Wall Street, based on the story of Jordan Belfort and his now ex-wife, Nadine Caridi.

If you are not familiar with her pretty face, you must have seen her character as portrayed by Margot Robbie in the biographical black comedy crime film. Being Jordan Belfort’s spouse placed Nadine at the centre of one of the wildest stories ever told in modern history. However, today, she lives a more reserved life in comparison to the one that placed her on a pedestal, making it possible for us to have known her story.

Who Was Nadine Caridi Before She Became This Famous?

She was born on the 6th of November 1962 in a London neighbourhood but, it was in Brooklyn, New York that she was raised because her parents relocated while she was still a baby. We have no idea yet where young Nadine’s elementary school took place but many sources report that she attended John Dewey High School, Gravesend, New York, for her basic education.

Again, so little is known about Nadine Caridi’s parents as well as other background details like her siblings (if any). However, it is public knowledge that she began her life in the spotlight when she became the poster girl for Miller Lite, a beer brand. With that exposure, Nadine also began to model for other brands in several national commercials, including the prestigious Monday Night Football commercials seen by millions of Americans.

Nadine got a college education but we have no information about her college history before she married The Wolf. Nevertheless, following the completion of the phase of her life with the former stockbroker, she has gone back to school to obtain a Master’s degree and a PhD in Clinical Psychology, earning the latter in 2015 from the Pacifica Graduate Institute.

Revealing Facts About Her Marriage To The Wolf That Shot Her To Fame

Nadine actually achieved a measure of fame as a model but it was her marriage to Jordan Belfort that really brought her under the spotlight.

Belfort Was Married When He First Met The-then Model

Their relationship began through the-then model’s boyfriend, Alan Wilzig. Alan introduced Nadine Caridi to Jordan during one of the many lavish parties that the Wolf was known to throw.

When Jordan and Caridi first met, the wealthy stockbroker was still married to his first wife, Denise Lombardo but a hot romantic affair kicked off between them all the same. Eventually, Belfort divorced Denise and married Nadine.

Nadine Caridi Quit Her Modeling Career To Become A Full-time Wife And Mother

The marriage began in 1991 and it looked set to become the envy of many New York socialites. As a result of the huge wealth already accumulated by Jordan Belfort at the time, Nadine Caridi quit her career as a model and began life as a mother and socialite.

During the 14 years that the marriage lasted, Nadine Caridi bore two kids Chandler and Carter for Jordan Belfort. Their daughter Chandler Belfort was born in 1993 while their son Carter was born in 1996. Interestingly, Carter has gone ahead to become a stockbroker like his father and his LinkedIn profile shows he works or has worked with Stratton Oakmont, the same company that his dad once used to defraud as many as 1,500 people.

Jordan Belfort Named A Yacht After Nadine

Their romance got so enviable that Jordan Belfort bought a yacht that was renamed ‘Nadine’ after his gorgeous wife. The yacht which was originally owned by the infamous Coco Chanel would later sink in June 1996.

The End Of Their Wild Romance

As it turned out, the sinking of ‘Nadine’ may have been an ominous sign of the eventual destruction of the ship of their romance. The marriage began to hit the rocks in 2003 when Jordan Belfort was sentenced to four years imprisonment after the conclusion of criminal investigations of his stock market crimes.

He eventually served just a year and ten months in prison. But while he was out of jail faster than he was expected to serve – on account of his good behaviour while in there – his marriage could not survive it and so, Jordan and Nadine finally got their divorce in 2005.

Life After The Wolf – Who Is Nadine Caridi Married To Now?

Today, Nadine Caridi is living a simpler life with her husband, John Macaluso. John is a former CEO of an entertainment company named Wizard World and together, the couple appears to be living peacefully and happily. They are raising their children – three daughters from Macaluso’s first marriage and two children from Nadine’s marriage to Jordan Belfort. All five children are named Frankie, Allie, Nicky, Chandler, and Carter respectively. John is a whole two decades and two years older than Nadine but she doesn’t seem to care.

With her doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology and certainly her experiences in her first marriage, the former model now works as a licensed marriage and family therapist, as well as a motivational speaker. Don’t be surprised if you see her now identified as Nadine Macaluso.

We learned that Nadine now makes a lot of money from thousands of people seeking a solution to their marital problem. She is reported to be sitting on a mouth-watering net worth of no less than $3 million. We also learned that a good chunk of this amount has been earned from just her work as a marriage counsellor. But, there can be no doubt that her former involvement with the former notorious stockbroker has helped in marketing her new business.

Apart from her marriage-repairing career, Nadine Caridi also spends a lot of time indulging in her hobbies such as painting, reading, and cooking. She once said that her favourite is Italian cuisine. She also said that she enjoys travelling to exotic holiday destinations from time to time. You could also find her watching movies at times. According to her, her favourite actors are Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock.

Nadine Caridi (now, Dr. Nadine Macalauso) is relatively active on social media where she keeps sharing words of advice that obviously arise from her past experiences and current affairs. She was on the 2020 Memorial Day that fell into the COVID-19 time as she was role-playing and giving safety advice:
