She currently lives in Palm Springs, Florida.
Brigitte started her long career in her teens, doing modeling work for some iconic companies, like Playboy magazine and Marvel Comics. Her good looks helped her transition to film, making her acting debut in “Red Sonja.” Despite her thespian limitations, she appeared in box office smash hits, such as “Beverly Hills Cop 2,” “Rocky IV,” “Cobra,” and “The Double O Kid.”
She became a massive television star in Europe during the 1990s, starring in many Danish, German, Italian, and French series. Later in her career, Brigitte participated in reality television projects, like the German version of “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!”
In the late 1980s, Brigitte commenced a successful music career, releasing her debut album, “Every Body Tells a Story,” which was followed by “I’m the One… Nobody Else.” In addition to her own music, Brigitte has appeared in iconic music videos, such as Michael Jackson’s “Liberian Girl” and Korn’s “Make Me Bad.”
In 2009, Brigitte published an autobiography, titled “You Only Have One Life – This is How I Found Myself Again.”
Brigitte suffered from alcohol problems in the early 2000s, prompting family intervention. But her problems were turned into an episode of the hit reality television series, “Celebrity Rehab.”
We estimate that Brigitte Nielsen’s net worth is $500,000 (2018).
So how much is $500,000 really?
$500,000 can purchase a modest condominium outside of Palm Springs, Florida. $500,000 can also pay for extensive fertility treatment for women over the age of 45.
