Nadine Caridi was born in London, England. In her early years, she grew up on the outskirts of London with two sisters and a brother. Her parents were both Italian immigrants who fled Italy during World War II. Her father was a dentist and her mother was a housewife.
She attended private school from an early age where she studied art, dance and acting until leaving at 18 years old to attend college in the United States.
The Woman from the Wolf of Wall Street is a biography written by Nadine Caridi. She is better known as the world’s most famous trader’s wife, and famous for her appearances in The Wolf of Wall Street film.
The book focuses on how she met Jordan Belfort (the world’s most famous trader), her marriage and divorce, and how she finally left the circle of high flying traders behind to start afresh.
Nadine married John MacLeod, a member of the conservative Republican Party and an aspiring politician, in 1984. Their two children were born in 1987 and 1988, but ended up divorcing in 2005. She now resides in California, where she was born.
Before gaining fame as DiCaprio’s model ex-girlfriend, Caridi lived a relatively normal life in Brooklyn with her family.
Her nickname “Duchess of Bay Ridge” is partially due to her childhood obsession with the sea creature (her father would always bring her octopus from work to play with), and partially because she dated several men who had seven other girlfriends at the time. She attended Marymount College before moving on to Brooklyn College and then working for Bankers Trust for several years before beginning a successful modeling career.
Nadine Caridi’s net worth is estimated at 5 million dollars as of 2017.
Her annual salary is approximately 500 thousand dollars per year. She owns several properties across the United States including one in New York City which she purchased in 1987, another in Beverly Hills which she purchased in 1990, and the third home in Palm Beach which she bought in 1996.”
