Kelly LeBrock is an American-born British model and actress. She first gained fame as a supermodel in the 80s, as the star attraction of a 24-page spread in Vogue magazine. At the time, Kelly was 19, and it became the start of multiple decades of intermittent presence in the spotlight.
From modelling, LeBrock diversified to acting and featured in several movies, like The Woman in Red, Weird Science, Hard to Kill, and Wrongfully Accused. At the height of her fame, she had a couple of marriages, her longest and most prominent being a marriage to 80s and 90s action star, Steven Seagal. The union ended in 1996 after producing three children.
Kelly LeBrock Left Hollywood Following Her Divorce From Steven Seagal
There might be a time when Steven Seagal was the darling of action film fans, but that time has since passed. Today, you would be hard-pressed to find anyone who wants to be publicly associated with the 90s star, especially following the wave of sexual assault allegations against him in 2010.
Among those who no longer care about the actor is Kelly LeBrock, she was married to him between 1987 and 1996. The two met while she was going through a divorce from her first husband, producer and restaurateur, Victor Drai in 1986.
Their marriage produced three children, whom she is proud of, but the marriage ended on a bad note. They had a bitter divorce, which played out on television.
To protect her children from the damage of their divorce, particularly the public opinion surrounding it, she retreated from Hollywood, and move to Southern California. She moved to a ranch in Santa Ynez Valley, California, and still lives there to date in a single-storey farmhouse
Full Return To Hollywood In 2013
During her exit from Hollywood, Kelly made sporadic appearances in films like The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Games and Zerophilia. She also appeared in reality TV shows like Hell’s Kitchen and Celebrity Fit Club USA. However, Kelly LeBrock did not fully return to Hollywood until 2013.
She marked her return with a role as Miss Grant in the film, 10 Days in a Madhouse. In the same year, she also appeared in the TV movie, A Prince for Christmas, as Queen Ariana. Most recently, she starred in Hidden Affairs and Charlie Boy.
Kelly LeBrock has also been a fixture on reality TV programs, like Growing Up Supermodel, Home & Family and a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. In 2016, she began appearing in the TV documentary, From the Mouths of Babes.
A return to Hollywood is never complete without appearances on the prestigious red carpets, and Kelly LeBrock has appeared in a couple of them. She made red-carpet appearances at the premiere of Growing Up Supermodel, and events like Icons of Style, Beverly Hills and Tribeca Film Festival.
Kelly Later Married An Investment Banker
Eleven years after her marriage to Steven Seagal ended in a disastrous divorce, Kelly LeBrock gave love and marriage another chance. In July 2007, she got married to a retired investment banker, Fred Streck. However, unlike her first two marriages, it did not last.
The two of them parted ways in a quiet divorce within a year after the wedding. However, some reports suggest they were married for ten years after dating for six years before the divorce. She is currently without a husband but seems content with her life.
Kelly LeBrock Is Doing Well Financially
Currently, there is no detail on the financial remunerations Kelly received from her marriage to Steve Seagal. However, between whatever she got, and her career as a model/actress, which includes the classic film, Woman in Red, Kelly LeBrock has an estimated net worth of $2 million.
She has appeared in a total of 16 films and as a model, worked for several brands and magazines, including Vogue and Christian Dior. She has also done commercials for Campari, Brut, Pantene, and British Airways. Her modelling work for Pantene gave Kelly LeBrock a decent income. It also led to the creation of the iconic line, ‘Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful’.
After years of spending her money on drugs and a high-speed lifestyle, combined with a tumultuous divorce, Kelly LeBrock retreated to a quiet life. She bought her Santa Ynez Valley ranch and lived alone with her children.
She also spends her money on philanthropy. After the death of her brother from cancer in 2008, Kelly LeBrock devoted her time and resources to caring for the terminally ill. She is a spokeswoman for Club Carson, an organization that consists of children who have cancer.
Being A Mom To Impressive Adults Has Made Her Proud
Her marriage to Steve Seagal produced three children – Annaliza (born in 1987), Dominic (born in 1990), and Arissa (born in 1993). Arissa was reportedly named after the couple’s nanny, Arissa Wolf, with whom Steve Seagal was allegedly having an affair.
Lebrock’s daughter, Arissa, has followed her mother’s footsteps into modelling. Blessed with her father’s stature and her mother’s curves, Arissa is a fast-rising plus-size model. She has walked the runway for the fashion brand, Mac Duggal and done photoshoots for the plus-size retailer, Ashley Stewart.
Kelly LeBrock and Arissa took part in the 2017 reality TV series, Growing Up Supermodel. The show chronicles the lives of celebrity kids who aspire to become models. Other participants include Atiana De La Hoya (daughter of the boxer, Oscar De La Hoya) and Cairo Peele (daughter of model Beverly Peele).
Not only is Arissa a rising model, but she is also a Jiu-jitsu fighter, following in her father’s footsteps. She participated at the World IBJJF Jiu-Jitsu Championship in 2019 and finished in second place. Arissa has also explored a career in the WWE, having participated in tryouts in December 2019.

However, both of Arissa’s younger siblings have opted for more private life. So private that only one of them, Dominic, has a known social media profile, a private Instagram account.
Regardless, both are presumed to be living a good life. All three children have three half-siblings. Two of them are from their father’s first wife, Miyako Fujitani and an alleged daughter, Savannah, with Arissa Wolfe.
