In the event you’re surprised by that net worth, remember that Barbara Sinatra was the wife of none other than Frank Sinatra before his death in 1998. The net worth career started, nevertheless, as a showgirl and model. Produced in Missouri, she met her first husband, Robert Harrison Oliver, an executive affiliated with all the Miss Universe pageant. After the birth of her son Bobby, the couple divorced, whereupon she began a career in show business as a showgirl in a Vegas casino. Also during her “showgirl period,” she worked as a fashion model for the well-known Mr. Blackwell.
Barbara Sinatra Net Worth $100 Million Dollars
After divorcing Oliver, she married the “fourth Marx brother,” Zeppo Marx, in 1959. In a somewhat unusual development, her son Bobby really switched his name to “Bobby Marx” when this marriage occurred. Like her first marriage, her marriage to Zeppo finished in divorce, after which she started seeing the celebrated Frank Sinatra in the 1970s. This marriage was the one that stuck, since they stayed together until his death in 1998. With this union, they began the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center, providing rehabilitative therapy to victims of sexual abuse. At 84 years young, Barbara Sinatra is among a small number of living connections to an American idol.
