Consequently, Erin remarried Jack C. Portman who became the father of her three children. Sadly their marriage also ended after 6 years.
Beyond Erin’s early accomplishments in the entertainment industry, her controversial lifestyle and marriage keeps her in the spotlight. While you would soon learn more about Erin, her first husband Axl holds a reputable place in the entertainment world as a lead vocalist and lyricist of the Guns N’ Roses band.
The 58 Years Old was Raised in a Broken Home
Erin Everly, according to many reliable records, was born in Los Angeles California on November 8, 1965, which means she is in her late 50s. She grew up alongside her siblings, Edan and Stacey who also share an interest in entertainment.
Erin’s parents were entertainers in their rights and it was only a matter of time before their children followed in their steps. Her father Don Everly was a member of the Every Brother’s Band while her mother, Venita Stevenson was an actress and fashion designer.
Though the family appeared to be a great one, they were plagued with many issues that resulted in a nasty divorce. It’s been said that her father was a drug addict and reportedly couldn’t control his temper.
After Erin completed her elementary education, she was enrolled at Buckley School in Sherman Oaks but her reading disability which was termed dyslexia as well as her parent’s financial struggles crippled her educational pursuits. She was later transferred to a public school where she completed middle school.
Erin Everly Pursued a Career in the Entertainment Industry
As earlier hinted, Erin is from a family of entertainers and became drawn to performing arts when she was young. Her photogenic smile and physique were additional bonuses to her. It was natural for her to opt for a career after high school.
Erin moved to the city of New York at the age of 16 to search for greener pastures. She signed under Wilhelmina modeling agency which is one of the World’s leading modeling and talent agency. Asides from her modeling gigs, she also earned several commercials, TV adverts, and promotion opportunities for brands like Bebe, Guess, and Jordache.
When Erin met Alx, her popularity grew and saw her feature in the Sweet Child O’ Mine music video which was a collaboration with the Guns ‘N Roses band. It is recorded that the 1988 song was inspired by Erin Everly during her meeting with Alx.
Erin’s Marriage to her First Husband Axl Rose Lasted Only 10 Months
Meeting first at a party, Erin and Axl instantly fell in love and soon started dating. After four years of romance, the pair got married on April 28, 1990. Being celebrities, they had a luxurious celebration with friends and family at Cupid’s Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas.
10 months into the marriage, trouble began to brew leading up to a nasty divorce in January 1991. It’s been reported in many quarters that the couple almost parted ways in the first week but held on because Erin was pregnant. However, when she lost her child in the 4th month their issues led to the exit door.
Three years after their marriage was nullified, Erin filed a civil lawsuit with claims that she was emotionally and physically abused while they were married. While many perceived this to be a way of gaining monetary value, Erin said Axl needed to share in her pains. As a result, Axl paid off the damages with an undisclosed sum of money.
The Actress Birthed Three Children with her Second Husband
A few months after Erin separated from her first husband Axl, she got into several affairs with celebrities like Mattew Nelson, Donavan Leitch, David Arquette, and Anthony KiedisJack C. Portman.
However, she settled for Jack C. Portman; the Vice Chairman of Portman Holdings in Atlanta, Georgia. Information about how and when the pair met is elusive to the media. What is known is that they exchanged vows sometime in 1997. Their wedding ceremony wasn’t as elaborate as her first but it was at least longer.
The pair enjoyed 9 years of marital bliss which saw the birth of their three children Easan Portman,27, Eres Portman, 23, and Esper Portman,15. Unfortunately, they soon grew out of love and separated in 2006.
The reason for their divorce was never stated even though it has been linked to infidelity by many sources.
What is Erin Everly Up to?
Following Erin’s second divorce, she slowly went out of the spotlight as her responsibility of raising three children became a priority to her. Nonetheless, she made the news in 2013 after selling off memorable items of her first husband Axl which included photos, letters, clothing, song lyrics, and even their marriage certificate. The items were sold at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills, California.
Since then, Erin has been mostly private and we can’t assert what she’s really up to in terms of her career but she reportedly started dating Micheal Kyln.
