Dwayne Johnson wife
Dany Garcia (ex-spouse)
Date of birth: November 29, 1968
Zodiac sign: Sagittarius
Behind each successful man there’s a woman, and behind each successful actor there’s a manager. In case of Dwayne Johnson-Dany Garcia, she joined the roles of both. Till now she serves as The Rock manager, although in 2008 they split.
The producer, career manager and body builder, Dany Garcia was born in Miami, Florida in the family of 2 Cuban immigrants. Her parents moved from their native Cuba at 14 (father) and 16 (mother) years old. Both were very poor and very young, when they met. Soon they welcomed two children – a daughter Dany and a son Hiram Garcia (who is celebrated as a film producer now).
Dany lived in poverty, and the only thing she dreamed about in her early years was to become a millionaire and save her parents and brother from such a miserable life.
Garcia started to work at the age of 12. At first she ran a barn and later found the job of a shop assistant and business suits shop. She joined her odd jobs with hard work at school – Dany was a great pupil – and sports (she practiced bodybuilding). After school the girl entered a University of Miami.
That was a winning ticket for a young woman, because there she got both – her profession and her husband. She met Dwayne Johnson, and they immediately became close. They were keen on sports and on their families. Dwayne and Dany started dating in 1991 and six years later they tied a knot.
Very soon Dwayne Johnson reached an incredible success as WWE wrestler. Their family income increased, but Dany had never thought about becoming a housewife. She made career in finance and soon her name has become popular at Wall Street. She served at Merrill Lynch bank.
But all the time Dany guided career of her husband. She gave him advice for both, wrestling and acting.
In middle 2000s they began to understand, that their marriage didn’t work. During one year Dwayne and Dany discussed their problems and tried to understand, why their marriage failed. Dany Garcia stresses the fact, that they did it with deep respect to each other. Finally, they decided to separate.
The couple divorced in 2008 and that very year Dwayne asked his ex-wife to become his manager full time. She left Wall Street and helped her ex-love to become a star.
