Who is her father Jordan Belfort?
Jordan Ross Belfort was born in The Bronx, New York City USA, on 9 July 1962 – his zodiac sign is Cancer, and he holds American nationality.
He became ‘popular’ on the internet after the release of the 2013 biographical crime comedy movie “The Wolf of the Wall Street”; it was directed by Martin Scorsese, starred Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and Margot Robbie, and follows Jordan’s life based on his autobiography. The movie won 37 of the 221 awards for which it was nominated, including five Oscar nominations.
Jordan was raised alongside his brother Robert in New York City, by their Jewish parents Max and Leah, who both worked as accountants. While Jordan was still attending a local high school, he and his friend Elliot Loewenstern started selling Italian ice to people who were spending time at the beach, and apparently made over $20,000 during a single summer.
Jordan matriculated in 1980, and then enrolled at American University, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in biology in 1984. He then enrolled at University of Maryland’s School of Dentistry, but after the dean told Jordan that there was no money in being a dentist, Jordan dropped out.
He started out by selling meat and seafood as a door-to-door salesman, and according to Jordan, he managed to employ a couple of workers, selling close to 2,500kgs of meat and fish every week, which was supposedly a success, however, he was 25 years old when he filed for bankruptcy, was then found a job as a trainee stockbroker, which in turn went broke. With financial help, he founded the brokerage house Stratton Oakmont, which was initially part of Stratton Securities, which Jordan later purchased.
He used his brokerage house as a boiler room, and defrauded numerous investors with his ‘pump and dump’ stock sales. He used the large amounts of money which he had made to throw huge parties, and to buy drugs; he was addicted to methaqualone at that time. Stratton Oakmont went on to employ more than 1,000 people, but according to various sources, Jordan defrauded investors of more than $1 billion.
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (back then National Association of Securities Dealers) started investigating Jordan in 1989, and put him out of business in 1996; he was accused of money laundering and securities fraud in 1999.
He was sentenced to spend four years behind bars, but was released after 22 months, after he struck a deal with the Federal Bureau of Investigation; Jordan was ordered to pay back $110 million to investors, giving away 50 percent of all his income until that was satisfied.
His first memoir, “The Wolf of Wall Street”, was published in September 2007, while his second – “Catching the Wolf of Wall Street: More Incredible True Stories of Fortunes, Schemes, Parties, and Prison” – was published on 24 February 2009; the books have been translated into close to 20 languages, and published in 40 countries.
Since his release from prison, he has been giving motivational speeches.
In 2019, he started dating the Argentinian actress and model Cristina Invernizzi, and they married in 2021.
