Victoria Granucci – Bio, Age
Victoria Granucci is a pretty private individual. There is little or no information readily available about her birthplace, parents, siblings, family background, and early life. Nonetheless, it is no secret that she was born on November 26, 1958. For her academic records, the name of Granucci’s high school is unknown but it is believed that she did not have a tertiary education.
Victoria kicked off a career in showbiz right after high school. She has a handful of screen credits, working both in front and behind the camera. Granucci featured as an extra on the set of films, shows, and music videos such as Charlie’s Angels, Happy Days, CHiPs, Grease, Fantasy Island, Thank God It’s Friday, and Love Boat, among others.
However, she was sprung to the spotlight following her marriage to Rock and Roll Hall of Famer John Mellencamp. Besides their erstwhile romance, the couple also worked together with Victoria starring in some of her husband’s music videos. From working behind the scenes on many of John’s videos, she made the progression to being in a video. One of her most recognized screen credits is the feature in Mellencamp’s hit music video, Jack and Diane.
If Married, Who Is The Husband?
Vicky Granucci was once happily married to Grammy-winning singer John Mellencamp. Though the marriage was a first for Victoria, it was the second for John who was formerly married to his high school sweetheart, Priscilla Esterline.

Victoria and John soon expanded their family and welcomed their first daughter Teddi in July 1981 and the second Justice born in 1985.
The former couple relocated to Indiana after their marriage. Though Victoria Granucci later admitted that working with her ex-husband was a good experience, she is believed to have eventually quit her showbiz career to become a full-time homemaker. With her husband mostly on tour, it was only logical for Vicky to stay back at home and raise their two daughters. Unfortunately, in 1989, the couple shocked fans with the news of their divorce. The circumstances surrounding their divorce was originally unknown until 1994 when Mellencamp confessed to having committed a professional hazard and being unfaithful to his wife while on tour.
