The Married relationship of Nadine Caridi & Jordan Belfort: Why Did It End?

Jordan Belfort is someone who ran his crooked business like a debauched Roman emperor, where successful employees were ­rewarded with hookers, drugs, and plenty of alcohol. It is something you might have heard of.

Yes, this is the story of the Leonardo DiCaprio starred "Wolf of the Wall Street," a movie based on the life of Belfort. 

The role of Naomi Belfort in the film is inspired by the story of Miller girl, Nadine Caridi, as Nadine and Belfort were once married to one another.

The pair tied the knot back in the early 1990s and are parents of two children, Carter Belfort (Son) and Chandler Belfort(Daughter).

But they separated from one another and got divorced back in 2005. But what was the reason?

Well, if you count, there are plenty!

Reason Adding To Filing For Divorce

Well, if you did not know, Belfort is someone who needed to be strapped down in his first-class plane seat after sexually ­assaulting an air stewardess.

He also smashed up his convertible Mercedes while his then-toddler ­daughter unbuckled in the front passenger seat. Luckily she survived and got out unscathed.

Furthermore, he had quite the love affair with drugs, booze and an army of hookers. He said,

“The girls were the top of the crop, gorgeous former cheerleaders for professional football teams. One liked to go to all our parties in Atlantic City. They rented a bus for 40 people, and she had oral sex with everybody on the bus.

He further added,

“Drug use was rampant. I took three or four Quaaludes a day. You thought you were the funniest person in the world but they made you aggressive on the phone, you lost any inhibitions.”

Quite expectedly, Nadine grew sick of Belfort's cheating and drugs, she left him and divorced him back in 2005, citing domestic abuse.  Domestic abuse because Belfort reportedly kicked Nadine down the stairs off of his 24-bedroom, Long Island mansion.

Despite their differences, the former husband and wife co-parent their children and thus, are known to be in relatively better terms with one another.
