|Real Name:||Lori Lin Weber|
|Occupation:||Former Wife of Daniel Negreanu|
Lori Lin Weber is a simple person. You can say she is a housewife. But her life changed when she got married to Daniel Negreanu, a prominent poker player from Canada. The two were married for just a few years, but she remains a public figure.
Even though Lori is trying to stay away from the public as much as possible, the media and fans continue to show interest in her. How much do we know about her early life? What about the educational background? And work? What does she do for a living? Well, let’s find out!
Who Is Her Ex-husband?
As we said before, Lori Lin Weber rose to prominence after her marriage to Canadian professional poker player Daniel Negreanu. Born in July 1974, he has won six World Series of Poker bracelets and two World Poker Tour championship titles.
Born in Toronto, Ontario, in 1974, he has Romanian heritage. His parents emigrated from Romania to Canada seven years prior to his birth. Fun fact: he can speak the Romanian language fluently.
His family wanted to start a new life in the United States but ended up settling in Toronto where his father worked as an electrician and sold confectionary.
He has an older brother, Mike Negreanu. Even as a young child, Daniel had high goals and hopes for his life. He stated in one interview in 2009, “From the age of four, I thought I’d be rich. I told my mom I’d build a house out of Popsicle sticks and move to California”.
Daniel attended Pineway Public School in North York. There, he was constantly criticized for his poor manners and behavior. The principal even threatened to expel him for ignoring the school rules.
At the age of 15, he learned to play poker, and at 16 years, he was spending time in pool halls, hustling, betting on sports, and playing cards.
Daniel dropped out of high school and began his life as a rounder, playing at local charity casinos. He was looking for illegal games around the city. In Toronto, he met and began dating Evelyn Ng, who would become a well-known professional poker player.
Daniel managed to build a bankroll and then left for Las Vegas at the age of 22 to pursue his dream of becoming a professional poker player. Yet, the Strip got the better of him. Negreanu was forced to move back home and rebuild his bankroll.
Eventually, he made it to Vegas and won six World Series of Poker bracelets. He has been named Player of the Year several times, and WSOP Player of the Year.
In 2019, he was the third-biggest live tournament poker winner of all time, behind only Justin Bonomo and Bryan Kenney. Until that point, he won 42 million in prize money.
Thanks to his success in poker, Daniel has made it into several movies. For example, he had a cameo appearance as a poker player in the movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He played a poker player in The Grand and appeared as himself in the movie Lucky You.
Fun fact: besides poker, he plays the game Hearthstone. He picked up the game in 2015 and began streaming it alongside poker on his Twitch channel.
In October 2020, he was one of 12 individuals named in a $330 million defamation lawsuit brought by poker professional Mike Postle. The lawsuit was dropped in April 2021.
Now let’s talk about Daniel’s former celebrity spouse, Lori Lin Weber. As we said before, she came to prominence after her marriage to Daniel.
There is little to no information about her former life. We do not know her exact birthplace or birth date.
There is also no information regarding her early life, educational background, and professional career.
The couple had a nice run for two years, being married from 2005 to 2007. Their marriage didn’t produce any children.
During that two-year period, they lived together. Why did they separate? How they began their relationship? Let’s find out.
Marriage To Daniel
Their relationship timeline shows that they got married in August 2005, after dating for a few months. And it ended in November 2007.
There is no information on how they met and began dating. But according to some reports, they got married in Las Vegas, with their reception at the La Bete dance club. The happy couple got married in front of a large number of friends and family members. Fun fact: Daniel’s former wife, Evelyn Ng, was also among the attendees.
Other celebrities at the wedding included Mike Matusow, Ted Forrest, Jenifer Harman, Eli Elezra, and Chan Giant.
After their marriage, the couple lived together for two years. But there was no media attention to their marriage.
Maybe that is why they managed to settle their divorce amicably without any media attention. According to some insiders, Lori and Daniel found common ground in the divorce settlement, with the professional poker player putting $5 million on the table.
Do They Have Children Together?
As we said together, Daniel and Lori Lin Weber lived together for two years. But they didn’t have any children together.
Despite living as husband and wife, they didn’t produce any babies. The two had a nice run for two years before calling it quits.
Daniel continued dating other women after the divorce. In 2017, Daniel posted a picture on Facebook, with the caption, “Welcoming my two new baby sons, Rocky & Apollo”.
Before you think he had babies with another woman, he wrote about his two new puppies.
Is She Active On Social Media?
As we said before, Lori was quite unknown before her marriage to Daniel. And following her marriage and divorce, she somehow disappeared from the limelight.
Being the secretive person she is, Lori is nowhere to be found on social media. She doesn’t have a profile on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.
Her former husband, on the other hand, is quite active. As we said before, he regularly posts on Facebook, where he has more than 300k followers on his page. But he is also active on Instagram, where he has 362k followers.
Speaking about the net worth of Lori, we cannot say for certain. Given that we do not know her professional career or anything about her educational background. Simply put, we do not know what she does for a living.
The only monetary transaction that is somehow reported, is the $5 million she got from Daniel in the divorce settlement.
Other than that, we have absolutely no idea where she gets her money from. Her former husband, on the other hand, is among the most successful poker player. And among the richest. He has earned more than $40 million during his poker career. And as of May 2023, Daniel’s net worth is well over $60 million. Not bad for a kid who dreamed to be rich at the age of four, right?
