Nadine Caridi's career, if isolated to her earlier years, that is, her modeling years wasn't one of many successful ones. She became the face of "Millet Lite" beer and then was seen in many advertisement campaigns and national campaigns alike.
Her life took a turn when she met Jordan Belfort. The couple first met at a party thrown by Belfort through Caridi's then-boyfriend, Alan Wilzig, who's now an entrepreneur and a semi-professional race driver. Jordan's parties back in the day were a rage among the people as they were filled with girls, drugs, and alcohol. Their first encounter was the one that attracted them both towards each other. Jordan was married at that time to Deniso Lombardo. After his divorce from Deniso, Jordan married Nadine in 1991, and she became the real-life Margot Robbie. Nadine quit her modeling career after the marriage. The couple had two babies- a son, Carter, and a daughter, Chandler.
Jordan Belfort bought a luxury yacht for his wife and named it after her- Nadine. But unfortunately, it sank in 1996. That was also the time fans of Belfort's business wear under the state's eyes because of their suspicious nature. He was in the news for the very same reason. His offices were then investigated by the authorities, which led Belfort into prison, where he was sentenced to four years in 2003. He was released on probation after serving one and ten months on account of good behavior. At the same time, he heavily relied on alcohol and drugs to end his daily life. His extramarital affairs did not obey boundaries. Nadine too had to undergo physical and emotional abuse as a result of Jordan's unstable behavior. The shameful ones compelled Nadine to Divas Belfort. And so the couple parted ways in the year 2005.
