Suzanne Rawlings’ Biography

Since Suzanne Rawling came into the limelight after her marriage to Richard Rawlings in 1999, the beautiful blonde has largely remained enveloped in her husband’s popularity. While she continued to appear in public with her husband, there was hardly any opportunity for an interview with her; at least to flesh out details of her early childhood, education, siblings, parents or what they did for a living.

However, we know she was born on a February 8 and is reportedly in her mid-forties. We also know she went by the maiden name Suzzane Marie Mergele; before adding Rawlings to it. However, it is uncertain if she will still maintain that name, especially in the wake of their recent split in 2019.

Who Is Suzanne Rawlings’s Ex-husband, Richard Rawlings?

Her ex-husband Richard Rawlings was born in Fort Worth, Texas, on March 30, 1969. Growing up, Rawlings attended auto shows with his father and constructed cars. This early influence would later lead to the purchase of his first car at the age of 14. He attended Eastern Hills High School and after graduation, spent a large chunk of his youthful time working as a firefighter, law enforcement officer, and paramedic.

Although he’s been the man behind Lincoln Press since 1999, Rawlings is perhaps best known for founding Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, Texas. Gas Monkey Garage was dedicated to piecing together custom-made automobiles for its global customer base. Sparking attention, the facility has been the centerpiece of Discovery Channel’s Fast N’ Loud since June 2012.

The Show’s signatory name would later form the title of Rawling’s autobiography; Fast N’ Loud: Blood, Sweat, and Beers. It was published in May 2015. So far, Fast N’ Loud has aired over 134 episodes, across 14 different seasons.

Suzanne Rawlings Was Richard Rawlings’ Wife Twice

Suzanne Rawlings and Richard Rawlings’ romance has been tumultuous, to say the least. The two first met in the 90s and got married in 1999 in Las Vegas. However, things started to turn sour when Richard’s business started to grow, causing him to travel more and be absent from home. This led to their divorce in 2009, after a decade of marriage.

During their time apart, which stretched over a couple of years, they apparently didn’t date anyone else. However, the couple rekindled their romance and remarried in 2015 in Cabo, Mexico.

However, in what seemed like a surreal move, Rawlings and Suzanne announced their split on March 11, 2019, stating irreconcilable differences. They have not made a third move to get back into marriage again.

Throughout their years together, there was no news of them having or expecting a child together. We’re also left in the dark as to Richard Rawling’s possible children from other relationships, seeing that Suzanne hasn’t been his only wife. Back in 1993, Rawlings was married to Karen K Grames but the union barely lasted a year; as it all went sour in 1994.

Suzanne Rawlings’s Salary and Net Worth
