Who is Diane Clohesy?
Diane Clohesy is known as the former wife of Stephen K. Bannon. She is said to have divorced her husband, Stephen Kevin Bannon, whom she married in 2006 and 2009. Though, she didn’t give birth to any child with him before she signed for a divorce.
Diane Clohesy’s biography doesn’t look like what so many people would wish for as she struggled with some challenges in her life. First, it was her career; she had to quit it because she was mocked for not having the body requirements of a model.
The second was her marriage. Of course, it didn’t last, as she signed a divorce after three years of marriage.
Diane Clohesy Biography
Diane Clohesy, the ex-wife of Stephen K. Bannon, was born in 1970 in Ireland, which means she is 54 years old. She is from Limerick, a western city in Ireland. Diane started pursuing her modeling career early while staying in her motherland. She represented her county in the Rose of Tralee contest and worked as a model in her home city under her former agent, Celia Holman Lee.
Then, Diane wasn’t sure of any success while modeling until she moved to the U.S. in the early ’90s and enrolled at a Fashion Institute.
Though that did not guarantee her success afterward, moving from her motherland to the U.S. was a game changer for her as that was when she got married to the love of her life despite not staying long in the marriage.
Diane Clohesy was banned from using Aer Lingus in 2002. She engaged one of the flight attendants after her request for alcohol was declined. Subsequently, she was fined $265 (€250) after she pleaded guilty to insulting behavior and $850 (€800) for court costs.
Diane Clohesy Career
Diane bagged a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing from the fashion school of technology, in New York.
As time went on, she started improving in her modeling career, which made her earn some recognition and modeling work along the line. Also, she has served as a model at the Rose of Tralee International Festival.
Later in her career, she got discouraged by hurtful remarks from people around her, saying she was too short of making an impact in the modeling industry.
She decided to quit modeling for something much better, and that was when she met her ex-husband Stephen K. Bannon in 2006.
She became the third wife of Bannon, who has been divorced twice by his first and second wives, Cathleen Suzanne Houff and Mary Louis Piccard, respectively.
And despite that, their marriage didn’t last as they divorced later in 2009. Bannon still caters to his ex-wife Diane by sending her money for her rent and monthly alimony payments.
Diane Clohesy Net worth
Reports show that Diane Clohesy is estimated to be worth more than $500,000, if not up to a million dollars.
She probably must have earned most of her wealth from several sources which remain pretty unknown.
Though she started her career as a model, she couldn’t keep up with it for long, so she decided to quit it for a better life.
Getting married to Stephen K. Bannon was a game changer for her as it helped improve her professional profile, as her ex-husband was an executive personality.
