Cristina Invernizzi is the wife of Jordan Belfort, the “Wolf of Wall Street.” She is an actress and model from Argentina. Page Six was the first to report in October 2021 that Belfort married Invernizzi in February.
Belfort, 59, has been married twice before, according to Page Six.
Belfort’s story became widely known through his book, “The Wolf of Wall Street,” and the big-screen adaptation of his story in the movie by the same name. Leonardo DiCaprio played Belfort in the 2013 movie.
The story focused on his time as a stockbroker, which landed him a brief stint in prison for running a penny stock “boiler room.” He pleaded guilty to securities fraud and money laundering in 1999 and was sentenced to 22 months in a California prison in 2003.
