Who is Deontay Wilder’s ex-wife Jessica Scales-Wilder?
Jessica Lynn Scales was born in Alabama, USA, but she doesn’t share information regarding her birthday, thus we are unable to tell what her zodiac sign is, and how old she is. Scales is best known to the media as the ex-wife of the renowned boxer Deontay Wilder and the mother of his four children.
So just how rich is Jessica Scales Wilder as of mid-2018? According to authoritative sources, her net worth is over $1 million, whereas her ex-husband’s net worth is $16 million, which means that the couple and their children were able to live a stable lifestyle when they were together. Furthermore, Jessica doesn’t disclose information regarding her assets, such as houses and cars, but we assume that she owns a fair number of those.
Husband, Divorce and Children
Jessica and her ex-husband Deontay married in 2009, and in the beginning everything seemed to be going right, and they eventually had four kids together. In 2014, during Jessica’s pregnancy, her child was diagnosed with spina bifida, and an abortion was suggested, however, but refused; the boxer said that ending the pregnancy was never an option because he and his wife were planning on having a baby then. Speaking about his daughter, Deontay said “Naieya came and it was a blessing in disguise because I probably wouldn’t be boxing if it weren’t for her” and additionally called her his hero. After that, the couple had three more kids, a daughter, Ava, and two sons Deontay Wilder Jr. and Dereon Wilder. Nonetheless, the couple separated and Deontay went on to date Telli Swift. Jessica keeps her current relationship status behind the closed door, and she is assumed to be single.
Despite being born with spina bifida, Naieya Wilder is strong and healthy as of today. In one emotional post on Twitter, her dad said “Naieya Wilder was born with spina bifida but she’s all grown up now and there’s nothing she can’t do. She’s truly a Wilder!” Although the boxer was scared when he learned about his daughter’s disability, she ended up proving wrong the doctors who assumed that she wouldn’t be able to walk. Watching his daughter fight and win her battles was certainly a significant inspiration for Deontay, as well as for the rest of the family. “You could never tell that she has spina bifida. She still walks with a limp because she had five surgeries when she was a baby”, said the proud father adding that “she will be a very strong woman”. In conclusion, the boxer said that he has beautiful children who make him overjoyed.
Early Life and Background
When it comes to Scales’ ethnicity, she is black and has naturally black curly hair and brown eyes. While she doesn’t share much information regarding her early life and private life, we know that her mother is named Lynette and her father is Simon. She doesn’t share information regarding her body measurements either, but judging from the photos available on the internet, Jessica has a curvy body.
Being secretive about her personal life, Scales doesn’t share information regarding her own career, but was mostly focused on her husband. Although Jessica and Deontay broke up, Deontay’s new girlfriend once said “Deontay is my job. I’m his stylist; I’m the chef, I’m the maid, I’m everything. Well, I’m a nurse. So, I can help him heal, recover and everything else. Before Deontay, I was a nurse here in LA, so I guess that’s what makes it work for him. Being that he’s never lost, I don’t have to worry much. He doesn’t get hit too much, so I don’t worry unless he does and that makes it easier for me”, thus we suppose that the situation might have been the same with Deontay and his ex-wife.
