Iranian-born American doctor, author, and TV personality, Dr. Younan Nowzaradan, is best known for helping obese people lose some weight on the TLC show, My 600-lb Life, since the 1st season of the show in 2012. Ever since the doctor ended his 27-years-long marriage with his wife, Delores Nowzaradan, in 2002, the surgeon has been fully focused on his professional career reaching new heights every day.
In this article, we will talk about Dr. Nowzaradan’s relationship with his then-wife Delores Nowzaradan, the reasons for their divorce, and if either of them dated anyone after the split. We will also talk about Delores’ age, career, and net worth.
Meet Delores Nowzaradan, Dr. Nowzaradan’s Wife
As of this writing, we don’t know anything about Dr. Nowzardan and his then-wife Delores Nowzaradan began dating. But, we do know that the two got married in 1975. By 1983, they had also given birth to three children, two daughters, and a son. The names of the kids are Jennifer Nowzaradan (born 1980), Jessica Nowzaradan (born 1983), and Jonathan Nowzaradan (born 1978).
After the marriage, Delores took care of the kids all by herself and even left her secretarial job for her children’s growth. Dr. Nowzaradan, on the other hand, was too busy in his professional career.
Unfortunately, their 27-years-long marriage ended after Delores filed for a divorce in the District Court of Texas in 2002. Reportedly, Delores made the claims of “cruel treatment” and “insupportability” in the divorce file.
Though Dr. Nowzaradan had filed for a counter-petition to Delores’ claims, the final judgment by the court in 2007 found Dr. Nowzaradan guilty. The court hearing resulted in favor of Delores and attributed fault in the marriage’s breakup to the doctor. The court also claimed Dr. Nowzaradan “complicated the discovery process by concealing and withholding records, obstructing discovery, asserting baseless privileges, failing to disclose essential information, denying access to records, and failing to comply with court orders.”
The hearing also resulted in Delores being granted almost 70% of their joint assets. Delores and Dr. Nowzaradan’s children were already adults when the divorce came into effect and thankfully it did not affect them.
As of November 2021, Jonathan is the CEO of Megalomedia. Furthermore, he is also the producer of the TLC show My 600lb Life.
