The Danish actress and reality television personality, Brigitte Nielsen, has always made headlines with her highly publicized relationships.
But the 57-year-old actress now seems to have found her ‘Mr. Right’ after making five trips down the aisle in the past.
Here’s a look at Brigitte Nielsen’s personal life and all her previous relationships.
Married Life With Italian Model, Mattia Dessì
After years of trial and error, Brigitte finally found her ‘Mr. Perfect,’ Mattia Dessì. When Brigitte was still legally married to Raoul Meyer, the couple held an unofficial ceremony in 2005.
But when her divorce with her ex-husband was finalized, the couple had their wedding in Italy in 2006. This was the fifth marriage for the actress.
It has been fourteen years since the couple got married. Unlike her past relationships, her marriage with the Italian model has been going strong.

Although her wedding to Mattia, who is 15 years her junior, had already grabbed huge media attention in the past, the news of her pregnancy in 2017 made more headlines. In 2018, at the age of 54, she gave birth to her first daughter, Frida.
Brigitte has been blessed to have Mattia in her life who has helped her evolve and overcome her alcohol addiction. When the duo met, Brigitte was more like ‘rock and roll’ but Mattia was completely different as he doesn’t smoke and drink.
Fourth Marriage To Raoul Meyer
Before falling in love with Mattia, Brigitte was married to the race car driver, Raoul Meyer. The estranged couple was married from 1993 to 2005.
In the course of their 12 years of marriage, they became parents to two children- sons Douglas Aaron and Raoul, Jr. While the couple was married, they lived in Switzerland for some time with their family.
Third Marriage To Sebastian Copeland
Brigitte was married to director and photographer Sebastian Copeland in the year 1990. The duo exchanged the wedding vows in a small ceremony at a chapel in Malta.
Her marriage to Sebastian lasted from 1990 to 1992. The couple had no children together.
Engaged To Mark Gastineau
If it was not Sebastian, Mark Gastineau would have been Brigitte’s third husband.
Brigitte and Mark were together for a year (from 1998 to 1989) and in between this time, they were engaged and also became a parent to a son.
Second Marriage To Sylvester Stallone
Brigitte Nielsen is the ex-wife of one of Hollywood’s most popular stars, Sylvester Stallone. When she was just 22 years old, she got married to Sylvester who happened to be nearly twice her age.
When the couple met, they were coming out from their failed marriages- Sylvester was recently divorced whereas Brigitte’s marriage had ended a year ago.
Since Brigitte got married to the actor in 1985 after knowing him for a couple of months, many people assumed that she was trying to advance her own career. However, during an interview with Oprah on Oprah: Where Are They Now?, Brigitte revealed that she got married to Sylvester because he begged her to do it and the people around her encouraged her to get married to him. She further explained that she didn’t tie the knot for his riches.
But by the year 1987, Brigitte and Sylvester were officially divorced. After the divorce, Brigitte was blacklisted- all doors were closed for her. However, since she speaks four languages- Danish, English, German, and Italian, she could survive working in different languages.
Her First Marriage
Actress Brigitte Nielsen was married for the first time at the age of 20 in 1983. She got married to the musician and actor, Kasper Winding. The couple kept their dating relationship private because of which it's not known when and where they met.
Brigitte and her ex-husband, Kasper, welcomed a son named Julian Winding shortly after their wedding. However, their relationship turned sour with time which caused the separation.
After the divorce, Julian met his mom occasionally as he was raised by his dad. Julian is now at the age of 35 and has no hard feelings toward his mom.
