Chandler’s Parents Had a Turbulent Marriage
Chandler’s parents met each other at a party hosted by Nadine’s ex-boyfriend and kicked off a hot romance even though Jordan was still married to his first wife Denise Lombardo at the time. Jordan’s first marriage eventually ended in 1991 owing to the issue of infidelity, and Jordan proceeded to marry Nadine that same year.
The marriage between Nadine Caridi and Jordan Belfort was characterized by numerous crises as Jordan constantly cheated on her with other women. He also physically abused Nadine, owing to his addiction and abuse of drugs. Chandler witnessed the constant fights and quarrels between her parents, and this negatively affected her childhood.

Following his release, Nadine filed for a divorce and won custody of the children at the end of the proceedings. They, however, maintained a cordial relationship while jointly raising their kids. A year after the divorce, Nadine remarried an entrepreneur named John Macaluso, while Jordan remarried a model named Cristina Invernizzi in 2021.
The ex-couple have gone on to live their lives happily with their newly married partners without any publicly known issues so far.
