Who is her ex-husband? Jordan Belfort Short Wiki/Bio

Jordan Ross Belfort was born on 9 July 1962 under the zodiac sign of Cancer, in The Bronx, New York City USA, where he was raised with his older brother named Robert, by their parents Max and Leah Belfort, both of whom worked as accountants. Speaking about his education, he went to Bayside High School, where he and his friend came up with an idea to earn some money by selling Italian ice from coolers to people at a local beach, that led them to make $20,000. Following his matriculation, he enrolled in American University, from which he earned his degree in Biology.

Thereafter, he used the money he earned with his friend to pay for a scholarship to the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, but quit after the first day after he was told that he couldn’t make a lot of money as a dentist, as he’d expected.

Career Beginnings

Jordan Belfort launched his professional career as a door-to-door salesman of meat and seafood, working on Long Island, New York. In no time, his meat-selling business grew, so he was able to hire several employees. At the time, he sold about 2,300kgs of beef and fish every week. However, his business ultimately failed, and he went bankrupt at the age of 25. A family friend then helped him to get a job as a trainee stockbroker at L.F. Rothschild, where he worked until the time he was laid off, when the company faced financial issues following the Black Monday stock market crash in 1987.

Throughout the rest of the decade, he furthered his career by working for several other financial companies, before he decided to start his own.

Stratton Oakmont

In 1989, Jordan Belfort and Danny Porush established Stratton Oakmont, an “over-the-counter” stock brokerage company. In a short period, it became the largest OTC company in the US, and was responsible for the initial public offering of more than 30 companies, such as Steve Madden Ltd. and many others. The company used the “pump and dump” schemes to sell penny stocks, and defraud its small investors, due to which its transactions were tracked by the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD).

At the height of its success, the company had more than 1,000 stockbrokers and over $1 billion under management.

In April 1996, the company was forbidden to conduct principal retail transactions, and by the end of the year, it had been kicked out of the NASD and put out of business. Three years later, Belfort was charged with securities fraud and money laundering; he eventually pleaded guilty, and confessed that he used the “pump and dump” schemes that led investors to lose about $200 million. He then spent 22 months of a four-year sentence in jail, released I n exchange for an agreement with the FBI. He was ordered to repay $110.4 million stolen from clients and stock buyers – so far, he’s apparently only returned $10 million.
