She owned a charmingly designed house in Los Angeles, California worth $1,998,000. She had to sell it after her divorce from her longtime husband. Her net worth has significantly dwindled. She was ordered by the divorce court to pay her husband $31,250, monthly for four years and a lump sum of $500,000, totaling to $2 Million.

Having started working early in her life, at six years, she saved up some money and bought her first car; an Opel Manta.
As her net worth kept growing through her life, she has owned all manner of cars, ranging from Maseratis, Ferraris, BMWs, Jeeps, and Lexus. She has a current love for Tesla Model S electric charged cars motivated by her love for conserving the environment. She intimates that this is the best car she has ever driven. It normally gives her between 300 to 400 miles when fully charged.
It has a quiet engine, you can charge it for free at any public supercharger and doesn’t consume any fuel. She thinks Tesla should have made it with less space inside as her belongings keep falling off; would do better with some large spongy seats.
