A Timeline Of Diane Plese’s Marriage and Divorce from Robert Herjavac and Details Of Her New Net Worth

Diane Plese’s marriage to Robert Herjavec was one of the most talked-about celebrity marriages north of the US border. The Canadian couple were role models to so many youngsters who aspired to enter into the institution of marriage. This made their sudden divorce after two and a half decades of being life partners very surprising, shattering the hearts of many as it was not clear what led to them parting ways.

Many have wondered about this and it has also kept the media abuzz for a long time as Robert contemplated suicide after the marriage failed. Those who kept up with how it all went down may have thought that his suicidal tendencies were because he had to part away with a large chunk of his net worth in divorce settlement. That is, however, far from the truth as they were caused by other reasons.

How Diane Plese and Robert Herjavec Joined Each other in Marriage

While her husband has always been one of North America’s most recognizable TV personalities and business leaders, Diane Plese was not always popular. She made a living as an optometrist before her marriage to Robert Herjavec brought her into the limelight.

The couple met each other many years ago while Plese was serving as Robert’s doctor. Seeing the connection between them, the duo first became friends before later starting a romantic relationship that led them to decide to spend their lives with one another. The pair went on to exchange marital vows in 1990, just around the time Robert’s career was fully taking off.

As man and wife, Diane Plese and Robert Herjavec welcomed three kids to the world; daughters Skye and Caprice and a son named Brendan. Things were believed to have been going on smoothly for the duo in their marriage until 2014 when it was announced that they separated. They would later go on to get a divorce in early 2016.

Now that Diane Plese’s marriage to Robert Herjavec is a thing of the past, the duo shares equal custody of their three children. Robert would, however, later disclose that parting with his wife of over two decades was terribly difficult for him. This is because, among other things, his kids stopped talking to him after the split, prompting him to contemplate suicide. They were mad that he was abandoning the home he had built with their mother, which according to him took him to a place he never imagined he would go.

The Real Reason Behind The Divorce

Time and time again, we have seen that there is no marriage that is above divorce, as even the supposed perfect couples have seen themselves go down that road after having grown apart. Nonetheless, Diane Plese and Robert Herjavec’s split came as a shock to many who had regarded them as an exemplary couple. They had enjoyed a blissful marriage until 2014 when the news of their separation saw the light of the day.

Following the announcement, rumors began circulating on the possible reason behind their separation and it was largely suggested that the businessman was cheating on his wife. The future of the couple was left to diverse speculations until Plese put it all to bed by filing for divorce. Robert’s wife’s divorce application was a sad moment for the TV personality who did all he could to save the marriage but was unable to. Following the couple’s separation in 2014, their divorce was eventually finalized in 2016.

If you ask Robert Herjavec what led to the divorce, he would most likely point out that he and Diana were great parents and a good team, then submit that they drifted apart over the years. But then, the events that followed the divorce seem to authenticate the claims that he cheated on Diana.

The Aftermath of Plese and Herjavec’s Divorce

As Robert is the reason Diane Plese is popular, it is easy to understand why much hasn’t been heard from her since their divorce was finalized. All we can tell is that she has been focused on parenting the kids they have.

This, however, wasn’t the case for her ex-husband who was quick to move on to other women. In 2017, it came to light that Robert and a woman named Danielle Vasinova had been in a relationship from 2013 to 2015. The duo confirmed this after having sued each other; with Danielle suing him for rape after he sued her for extortion over false claims of sexual assault. Both suits were later dismissed and Danielle retracted her claims.

In 2015, Robert began officially dating his Dancing with the Stars partner, Kym Johnson. A few months after making the relationship public, he proposed to her and the duo went on to exchange marital vows on July 31, 2016, in Los Angeles. On April 23, 2018, they welcomed a set of twins (boy and girl) who they named Hudson and Haven Herjavec.

Diane Plese’s Net Worth and Details of Her Divorce Settlement

While there is not much information regarding Diane Plese and what she earns, details of her ex-husband’s earnings are public knowledge. He is an investor, businessman, and television star best known for his appearance on several reality television shows like ABC’s Shark Tank, and CBS’s Dragon’s Den.

Robert began his career as a film producer in the mid-80s before working for tech companies like Logiquest and BRAK Systems, the latter of which he founded and later sold to AT&T Canada for $30.2 million in 2000. Robert would then go on to serve as Vice President of Sales at Ramp Network before founding Herjavec Group in 2003. The company is reported to make about $200 million in annual revenue.

Thanks to all of these endeavors, you can see why the Canadian was estimated to be worth $400 million in 2016. Diane Plese, on the other hand, is reported to have a net worth of $25 million, a figure that largely comes from what she received from her divorce settlement.

Following their divorce, Plese was awarded about $20 million in assets. In 2019, a judge ordered her husband to pay her an additional $2.6 million in equalization payment. She would further also receive $2.4 million once the couple’s Florida property is sold and $400,000 from the sale of the family’s Caledon ski chalet. This is in addition to the $125,000 she receives every month in spousal support.
