Meet David Fhima, Golden Bachelor Leslie Fhima Ex-Husband
Golden Bachelor’s alleged final four contestant Leslie Fhima was previously married to renowned Minnesota chef David Fhima. David arrived in the US in 1982 so, they likely met each other after that. The couple shared two children together named Eli Fhima and Chloe Fhima. Leslie also has a son named Zack Chazin.
Eli, who is 28 years old now, was only 5 years old when David and Leslie Divorced. Hence, the exes have separated for more than 23 years. “Eli was raised under my kitchen skirt from the time he was born,” David shared, “and as a product of a divorce, it meant that I had custody half of the time, and given how precious those times were I never wanted to have a babysitter so that meant he was at the restaurant when he was not in school, doing homework, hanging out and mostly eating.”
Leslie also spoke of her children claiming that they are the “love of her life.”
“They are the loves of my life,” Leslie said. “I’m all about creating memories and traditions for them. I bring a lot to their lives and they make my every day happier.” She sees them three times a week and FaceTimes them on days she doesn’t pick them up from school or take them on an outing.
After graduating from high school, Leslie traveled the world with the Ice Follies and Holiday on Ice while spending a large portion of her own youth on skates. “I taught my grandson to snowboard, the three of us go sledding,” she said. “We swim together in the summer, we have dance parties. When my younger son [the grandkids’ uncle] ran Grandma’s Marathon, we went up to cheer and run the last mile with him.”
“When I was raising my own children, I was a single mother, juggling everything. Now I have the space in my life to give my grandchildren real quality time that I didn’t always get to do with my kids,” she said. “My grandkids are my do-over.”
Her son Zack Chazin works as a Global Touring at Live Nation Concerts. He was a Talent Buyer/Promoter & Artist Management at Chazin Entertainment. Moreover, he is a Partner/Director/Talent Buyer at Snowta Fest.
Eli, according to his LinkedIn, is currently serving in the role of Director of Operations at Fhimas Minneapolis. He was part of a hip-hop trio called Kids Like Us, which released an album called, When Things Get Weird, in May 2014.
