Is Linda Evangelista still married to Gerald Marie?
No, Linda Evangelist and Gerald Marie were married in 1987 when she was just 22 years old. However, they were only married for six years before divorcing in 1993.
In the early ’90s, Evangelista’s personal life was everything from pleasant as her professional star blossomed.
Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, and Christy Turlington were known as the Holy Trinity of supermodels during the 1990s.
However, it was around this time that she filed for divorce from her six-year spouse, Gerald Marie, the head of a French modeling agency.
Evangelista married Marie, a 15-year-old senior, in 1987, when she was just 22 years old.
On the surface, they appeared to be the ultimate power couple, with one of the world’s most powerful agents and the other the world’s most attractive supermodel forming a unique professional and personal partnership.
“All those lovely faces produce income to his company which I get to help spend,” remarked Evangelista in 1991 when asked if she was envious of the young women Marie worked with on a Canadian television program. No, I’m not afraid. I’ve already accomplished what I set out to do.”
The couple decided to divorce in 1993. Evangelista claims she was fully uninformed that Marie sexually assaulted, harassed, and raped several of the women he worked with before and, during, and following their marriage.
