Dallas Yocum is the ex-wife of Mike Lindell, an American businessman, political activist, and conspiracy theorist known for being the founder and CEO of My Pillow, Inc. Dallas Yocum met her ex-husband while working in a casino and they started dating after he offered her a job at his company. The couple went on to date for two years before getting married in 2013.
Sallas and Mike’s union later made history as one of the shortest marriages in the globe, as it only lasted for two weeks before Mike filed for a divorce. Aged 42, Mike Lindell’s ex-wife worked in a casino and was later employed at her ex-husband’s company, My Pillow Inc.
How Old Is Dallas Yocum?
Dallas Yocum is 42 years old. She was born in December 1980 in the United States and spent her formative years in Arizona. It goes without saying that Yocum is an American by nationality, though her ethnic background is a mix of different roots.
Yocum is the daughter of Dale Farmer, who worked for several years with the United States Navy as a mechanic. A war veteran, Dale’s workstation was aboard U.S. Bon Homme. Nothing is known about her mum and siblings. Just like her father, Dallas’ grandfather was the first war veteran in their lineage; he served in World War II. For the last 30 years of his life, Dale was a resident of Bullhead City, Arizona; he died in 2011, aged 68.
Dallas is the type that loves to keep details of their early lives under wraps, thus, she has never mentioned much about her academic journey. We were only told that her academic pursuit took her to New York, and she earned a degree in Business Management.
When did Dallas Yocum and Mike Lindell Meet
Dallas Yocum and Mike Lindell first crossed paths during the summer of 2011, though the exact time they met is unknown. The couple’s first meeting occurred in Laughlin, Nevada, when Dallas used to work at Riverside Casino. Lindell was a heavy gambler, and the Riverside Casino was one of the gambling houses he frequented, and that was where the two met.
The couple didn’t start dating immediately after their first meeting. Lindell was a bit strategic in courting Dallas. The CEO of MyPillow Inc. started from a religious angle by telling his love interest that he often talks to God in his dream, and it was revealed to him that she needed to work in his company.
When Dallas eventually accepted to work for Mike, he made her an executive assistant with promises that everything would be kept professional between the two of them. When Dallas eventually moved down to Minnesota to assume her new job responsibility, Mike offered her the use of his sister’s home, which he was staying at that time.
The Duo Started Dating in 2011
He offered her a job as an executive assistant and promised to keep things professional, so Yocum took it. However, Lindell didn’t keep his word. As soon as Yocum moved to Minnesota, he told her to stay at his sister’s place, where he also lived at the time.
Moving into the home of Mike’s sister meant that the two were constantly in each other’s company, and before long, they started dating. All these happened before the end of 2011. At that time, Mike was engaged to another woman, but he quickly cut all ties with the lady to make room for Dallas Yocum.
The duo barely dated for some months when Mike became confident that their relationship was blossoming, and he popped the big question. Though, he never knew that all the roses and Champaign he was seeing were only in his mind. However, he still got a “Yes” as an answer to his marriage proposal.
Dallas Became Mike Lindell’s Wife in 2013
The couple’s official engagement barely lasted a few months when they decided to take the proverbial walk down the aisle. Their nuptials eventually came to pass on the 8th of June 2013, and it was said to be a lavish affair.
The ceremony was hosted in Chanhassen, Minnesota, at Chaska’s Oak Ridge Hotel and Conference Center and was graced by 300 invited guests who never imagined that the union wouldn’t see the end of that month.
Who is Dallas Yocum’s Husband, Mike Lindell?
Mike Lindell is an American businessman and the Chief executive officer of MyPillow Inc. Based in Chaska, Minnesota, the company is listed among the most successful pillow manufacturing companies in the United States. MyPillow, which was launched in 2004, manufactures other products, including beddings, beds, pet beds, slippers, and more
Mike’s tale is an account of rags to riches. The Chief Executive Officer of MyPillow Inc. was actually a crack cocaine addict before 2004. However, he managed to overcome his addiction and, with his children’s help, launched his pillow company with just five staff members.
However, luck seemed to be on his side as the company started recording success within a short while. Currently, he employs over 50 staff members, and his factory churns out 85 thousand pillows on a daily basis. He also founded the Lindell Foundation, which caters to the needs of the less privileged. Mike is a huge supporter of Donald Trump’s government during his time as the President of the United States
Lindell said he sees his success story as divine intervention, from cocaine addict to a multi-millionaire with a net worth in excess of $350 million.
Does Dallas Yocum have Children?
Dallas Yocum does not share any children with her ex-husband, Mike Lindell, which is understandable given their short-gun marriage. However, before going into the relationship, she already had grown-up children. Nothing much is known about her kids. They were only mentioned when Lindell offered two of them jobs in his company.
Dallas Yocum wasn’t the First Wife of Mike Lindell
Far from being the first wife to Mike Lindell, Dallas Yocum was his wife number two. The Chief Executive Officer of MyPillow Inc. was previously married to a lady called Karen Dickey.
The couple was actually enjoying married life at the beginning of their relationship, and things ran smoothly for two decades before their relationship hit the rocks. It was later revealed that Lindell was the reason for the breakdown of their union, and it was all because of his addiction to hard substances.
Before the end of his marriage to Karen, the couple were already parents to four children, including Heather Lueth, Darren, Lizzy Meyers, and Charlie Lindell.
After he divorced his first wife, Lindell was rumored to be dating popular actress Jane Krakowski, but Jane wasted no time coming open to debunking the claims. In her words, the renowned movie star prefers to date Kermit the Frog than go anywhere near MyPillow boss. Besides, Jane’s spokesperson also weighed in on the issue, claiming that the actress never even set eyes on Mike in her life and they have never been in a relationship, romantic or otherwise.
It would appear that Mike’s ego survived his experience with Dallas Yocum, and according to the Chief Executive Officer of MyPillow Inc., he found enough solace in God and prayers. He later found love again in the arms of Kendra Reeves. The duo met in 2014, and Reeves, who happens to be very religious, encouraged Mike to put his faith in the almighty. When Lindell discovered Reeves’ relationship with God, he craved the same for himself, which was enough ingredient for the couple to bond.
Though Reeves and Mike never announced their split, she has not been spotted on his social media handles for a long while. Thus, it is unclear whether they are still together.
In the same vein, Mike was not also Dallas’ first husband. Even though she managed to keep the details of her personal life hidden, it was once revealed that Dallas was already divorced from her third husband when she first crossed paths with Lindell. Their nuptials made him her husband, number four.
How Long was Dallas Yocum Married to Mike Lindell?
After their June 8th, 2013, wedding, Dallas Yocum and Mike Lindell’s union eventually lasted two weeks before it hit the rocks. The short duration of the couple’s marriage made it one of the shortest in the world.
It was later revealed that it was Mike Lindell who went to file for divorce from Dallas Yocum, and from what was seen in their divorce document, the CEO of MyPillow Inc. cited irreconcilable differences.
Mike filed for divorce around mid-July, and the procedure didn’t take long before it was finalized. The reason is that Mike was shrewd enough to insist that Dallas sign a prenuptial agreement before they exchanged wedding vows, and it was thanks to the prenupt that his fortune was safe from Yocum. According to Mike, when he was drawing up the prenup papers, he never imagined it would come in handy so soon.
In the absence of any form of alimony settlement, the judge only needed to rule that their union had come to an end, and that was final.
Perhaps Dallas was pained that she was not getting anything out of her relationship with Mike, and while she was leaving his house, she went along with her rings and other expensive jewelry, and that was enough compensation for her.
Reasons For the Couple’s Divorce
Before long, the real reason for the couple’s split was eventually revealed. According to Dallas, they were just two days into their marriage when she requested that Mike allow her toddler granddaughter to live with them, and the request resulted in a fight between them.
During the ensuing fight, Mike got so angry that he nearly hit the baby, and at the end of the day, he chased both Dallas and the toddler out, and they passed the night in a hotel.
Defending himself against the allegation, Mike claimed Dallas exaggerated and fabricated a lot of things in her accusations. While labeling her a “bitter woman”, he said Yocum had a selfish goal of manipulating him just to get money and expensive gifts.
There was a time the duo was talking, and Dallas Yocum requested to be left alone, and when Lindell declined, she said;
“I don’t love you. I never loved you. You’re boring. We don’t have anything in common, and you’ve ruined the last two years of my life.”
While they were washing their dirty linens in public, Yocum recounted how Lindell didn’t allow her to visit her family after she moved to Minnesota with him, and in his defense, Mike said he even employed some of her children, including her niece.
Going on, Mike narrated how he continued remitting salary to Dallas even after she stopped going to work following the wedding. He justified the payment with the work he expected to get out of her in the future, which never came to pass.
After he chased Dallas out of the house, Lindell said he kept calling and texting but to no avail. Then, guests who attended their wedding told him she was seen telling people that their marriage wasn’t meant to last very long. That was when he decided that divorce was the right thing to do, and he went on to file for it immediately.
Since their divorce was declared final, nothing has been heard from Yocum, thus, it is not known whether she got married again or not.
What does Mike Lindell’s Ex-wife do for a Living?
After completing her university studies, Dallas Yocum moved into the labor market and landed her first employment at Riverdale Casino. While working at the gambling house, she met the man who would become her fifth husband, Mike Lindell.
Dallas’ acquaintance with Mike Lindell led him to offer her a job at his company called MyPillow Inc. When Mike first hired Dallas Services, he gave her the post of an executive assistant at the firm. She was barely two years in that position before the CEO promoted her to the company’s customer service center director.
Though he was interested in Yocum as a woman, Mike had another reason for giving her a job in his company. The CEO of MyPillow Inc. needed her assistance in completing his autobiography, which was already half done.
While she was working at My Pillow, Mike had great plans for Dallas Yocum, especially after she agreed to become his wife. The CEO later revealed that his plan was to make her the firm’s VP of Compliance.
However, after things went south in their relationship, Dallas’ position in the company was in jeopardy, though to date, she never mentioned how their professional relationship eventually came to an end.
Dallas’ claim to fame has always been her marriage to a multi-millionaire of Mike Lindell’s caliber, thus, she receded back into obscurity following the end of their relationship. Since she has no known presence on social media, knowing what she is currently doing for a living has proved difficult. However, she has been listed as a businesswoman.
