David DeLuise rose to the spotlight in 1979 when he was eight years old after he made an appearance on the 1979 widely-watched TV show, “Happy.” He played the role of Dom DeLuise’s son in the episodes of the show, so it is likely that his father recommended him for the role.

Brigitte DeLuise Marriage
Brigitte DeLuise first got married, to David DeLuise, in 1994. They tied their wedding knot at a private wedding party that was held at a local church in Los Angeles, California State in September 1994. David DeLuise’s parents, actor Dom DeLuise and actress Carol Arthur were some of the family members present at the officiating ceremony of the now-defunct marriage.
Before they officiated their marriage through the legal process, the now-divorced couple already had a child. Riley DeLuise became their first child whom they had on August 4, 1993 (29 years old), during their courting years. About three years after their marriage, they had their second child and last child, named Dylan DeLuise (born in 1997; 26 years old). Brigitte and David lived in their home in Los Angeles, California, with their two daughters until their marriage started having issues which would later lead to their divorce in May 2003. They were married for about eight years and seven months.
Brigitte DeLuise Divorce and Lawsuit Outcome
A report published on January 23, 2004, purported that Brigitte DeLuise sued her father-in-law actor Dom DeLuise to the tune of $2 million. According to information available to me, Brigitte sued Mr. Dom less than a year after she and David DeLuise, finalized their divorce proceedings.
On Wednesday, January 21, 2004, Brigitte filed a lawsuit against Mr. Dom DeLuise at Superior Court sitting in Los Angeles (AP) over “conspiracy to cut her off financially” following her divorce from his son regardless of the mutual agreement they (her and Dom’s son) had – that all assets would be for her and David.
In the lawsuit which she withdrew in January 2006, and later refiled it June 23, 2006, Brigitte claims “her father-in-law conspired with his financial advisers, Page Ma Business Management, to limit her rights and access to funds.” She also claimed that the ownership of a West Hollywood home was part of the assets she was denied access.
Nonetheless, reports published on September 25, 2006, claim that Mr. Dom DeLuise filed a counter-lawsuit against Brigitte DeLuise and her lawyer, Steven Zelig, and Zelig’s law firm, claiming that their lawsuit against him had caused him emotional distress. However, Brigitte’s lawyer, Steven, countered the suit, asking a judge to dismiss the lawsuit against him and his client (Brigitte) as Mr. DeLuise didn’t provide any evidence to back up his claims. He also claims that the “lawsuit violated a state law designed to prevent the silencing of critics by burdening them with legal costs.” However, Judge Judith C. Chirlin disagreed with them, with reasons stated in part, thus;
“I find that there were sufficient grounds for the lawsuit to have been filed. There is a likelihood of it prevailing on the merits.”
The lawsuit, first filed by Mrs. DeLuise, Wednesday, January 24, 2004, was discharged by the Court of Appeal of California on April 28, 2008. The case details are DeLuise v. DeLuise with the No. B195243 (Cal. Ct. App. Apr. 28, 2008), and full title “DOM DELUISE, Plaintiff and Respondent, v. BRIGITTE DELUISE et al.” The court disposition through the order of the superior court ruled that the respondent (Mr. Dom DeLuise) is to recover his costs on appeal.
Brigitte DeLuise Net worth
Brigitte DeLuise’s net worth is unknown. However, her ex-husband, David Dominick DeLuise, has an estimated net worth of about $10 million. On the other hand, her former father-in-law, Dom DeLuise, had an estimated net worth of about $9 million.
Brigitte has continued to stay away from the spotlight after the court made its final rulings on the lawsuits while her father-in-law, Dom DeLuise, born Dominick DeLuise on August 1, 1933, died a year and a few days after the rulings from cancer, high blood pressure and diabetes on May 4, 2009, at Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California. He was aged 75.
