Catherine Bell’s Marriage and relationship with Brooke
Before her relationship with Brooke, the actress was married to Adam Beason, a writer and producer.
The ex-couple met on the set of “Death Becomes Her”, married on 8 May 1994, and welcomed two children together, Gemma on 16 April 2003 and Ronan on 21 August 2010. However, in 2011 they sold the mansion in which they lived and announced that they were divorcing. After the announcement, Catherine moved in with Brooke Daniells in L.A., which caused a lot of controversy, and sparked rumors. Many claimed that they were in a lesbian relationship, and that Catherine divorced Adam for Brooke. Various tabloids and media outlets hopped on the bandwagon and started reporting about this supposedly shocking news. The divorce between Adam and Catherine was finalized in 2015. Neither Brooke nor Catherine came forward with any details; they have not confirmed nor denied the allegations, which left a lot of space for speculation.
In the interview for Pink Magazine, she said: “A huge part of it is your attitude about it. When you see a photographer, instead of hiding you just smile, wave, and turn in the driveway, and that’s that.”
Later, Catherine moved out of Brooke’s home and bought a house in Los Angeles. Many took this as a confirmation that rumors about their relationship were false. However, other media outlets claim that they are living together in the mansion that Catherine bought. Catherine has not posted any photos with Brooke in the last couple of years, so it seems that the mystery of their relationship will remain unsolved.
Physical stats and net worth
According to wikicelebs, Brooke is 5ft 10ins (178cm) tall, and her net worth is estimated at $2.5 million. On the other hand, Catherine’s net worth is around $15 million.
