Marriage with Jeff Gordon

During the early 1990s, Brooke served as one of Miss Winston Cup’s models, welcoming NASCAR drivers in victory lane. Due to her stunning appearance, she was later appointed as the Miss Winston. Brooke and Jeff first met in early 1993, during her ‘tenure’ as Miss Winston, when she greeted him in the victory lane of the Daytona International Speedway, after he won the first qualifying race for the upcoming Daytona 500 event. Due to an unwritten policy which prohibited drivers to become romantically involved with models, the two began their relationship in absolute secrecy, however, when her mandate ended after the 1993 season, Brooke and Jeff publicly acknowledged their liaison in December that year, then in early 1994 Gordon proposed to Sealey in a banquet hall of a French restaurant located in Daytona Beach, Florida, and their wedding was held on the 26th November 1994.

Jeffery Michael ‘Jeff’ Gordon was born under the zodiac sign of Leo on the 4th August 1971 in Vallejo, California, USA, the younger child of William Grinnell Gordon and Carol Ann Bickford. He has an older sister named Kim, and apart from being of American nationality and white ethnicity, he is also of Scotch-Irish ancestry. Speaking about his education, the only relevant information is that he matriculated from Tri-West Hendricks High School in Lizton, Indiana, in 1989.

Gordon’s dive into the world of racing occurred at the age of only five, when he began competing in Quarter Midget racing. At the age of 16, he became the youngest driver to receive a US Auto Club license after which he stepped into the world of race car driving. In 1990 Jeff Gordon joined NASCAR and in the course of the next 25 years added almost 100 wins to his professional portfolio, including four NASCAR Cup Series Champion titles, three Daytona 500 and five Brickyard 400 Winner titles, as well as three Champion of the Spring All-Starr Challenge titles. During the 1990s NASCAR placed him on the 50 Greatest Drivers list, while in 2019 he was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

After almost eight years of marriage, during which the couple didn’t have children, the couple separated when in March 2002, Brooke filed for divorce. She sued Gordon for marital misconduct, alleging a relationship with American actress and glamour model Deanna Merryman, which was followed by contra claims from Gordon’s side. An insight into the court papers showed that Sealey required ‘exclusive use of the couple’s oceanfront home in Highland Beach, Florida, valued at $9 million, as well as alimony, two cars and periodic use of their boats and an airplane’. After almost a year-and-a-half long process, in June 2013 the court awarded Brooke Sealey a ‘hefty’ settlement, the impressive sum of $15.3 million.

Personal Life

Prior to stepping into the limelight for her marriage with prosperous NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon, Brooke was apparently briefly married to Philip Wegner. However, after one of the most lucrative divorce settlements in the history of NASCAR and in sport in general, she became romantically connected to and later married James Dixion II with whom she welcomed a daughter, Ella Gordon, named after her ex husband. However, this marriage was ended after Dixion filed for divorced, claiming that ‘it is absolutely inappropriate for the child to be legally named after Jeff Gordon who is neither the father nor a blood relative’, and asking for alimony worth $10,000, a car and a $1.5 million valued house.

Sealey is now married to Mullins McLeod, who has been known as a 2010 South Carolina Gubernatorial Candidate, with whom she’s welcomed two children.

Net Worth

Have you ever wondered how much wealth this famous ex-wife has accumulated so far? How rich Brooke Sealey is? According to sources, it is estimated that the total of Sealey’s net worth, speaking as of mid-2019, revolves around the sum of at least $10 million which has been primarily acquired through the divorce settlement from the retired professional racing driver Jeff Gordon.
