Who Exactly is Andrea Hissom – Steve Wynn’s Wife?
As mentioned earlier, Andrea is the wife of the billionaire businessman and politician Steve Wynn. Andrea’s name popped up in the media in the wake of the unfortunate development that tarnished her husband’s image, as the media’s attention soon tilted from Wynn to how she – Andrea, took the allegations.
Andrea Hissom was born on January 1, 1970, to her parents; Victor Danenza, her father and Arlene Novack her mother. Her father, a British financier has gotten into trouble with the law several times on grounds of unscrupulous dealings. A more memorable incident is that of 1976 when he absconded to France to evade federal investigations on fraud. He is also known for linking young pretty women with wealthy men.
Andrea and Steve Wynn got married on April 30, 2011, in Las Vegas. It was a lavish wedding ceremony dubbed ‘America’s royal wedding’ considering the fact that the duo tied the knot on the same weekend Cambridge’s Duke and Duchess Prince William and Kate Middleton wedded. It was at Wynn’s Las Vegas resort, friends and family were present, and Andrea looked exceptionally ravishing on her big day.
Here are Facts You Must Know About Her
Andrea Hissom may be popular because she is the wife of billionaire Steve Wynn, but this fame and attention came her way in the wake of Wynn’s divorce from his first wife, Elaine Wynn who was also his business partner. It was regarded as one of the largest divorce settlement cases with Elaine sweeping $741 million of his Wynn Resorts stock assets. The fuss was not only about the catchy palimony, but also Steve’s rumored affair with Andrea at the time. It was speculated that Andrea was the major reason behind the divorce. These speculations came after the two were spotted several times during that period.
More facts also came to light during this period with the most memorable being the huge age gap between the two. Andrea who is 21 years younger than Steve Wynn, met the businessman in 2008 when he was still married to Elaine. Reports had it that the two started dating but were discreet about it until 2009 when they were spotted together by the media. Their cover was blown during a dinner at Beverly Hotel, Los Angeles. It may have been due to pressure from the media or other reasons but the two split shortly afterward only to reconcile again the following year.
After Wynn’s divorce from his first wife Elaine, the two got married in 2011. Andrea Hissom has been so supportive of her husband, which is why she made the news in 2017 after he – Steve was accused of sexual harassment. Many female employees in his resorts at the time came up with claims that they were sexually harassed by the businessman who was also the chairman of the Republican National Committee.
It had been a long squabble with the law, a fight which later saw to his resignation from office in January 2018. In all this, Andrea gave no hints to the media, and also threw her weight behind her husband. Steve Wynn had accused his ex-wife of orchestrating the allegations to spite him.
With his first wife Elaine, Steve has two daughters; Kevyn and Gillian Wynn. Before Wynn, Andrea was married to banker Robert David Hissom. Robert an American, worked with Aspen Capital Partners Ltd. in Europe. She has two sons, Alex, and Nick with her first husband. Andrea Hissom lives with her husband Steve Wynn in New York. It is not clear who exactly is in custody of Wynn’s children with his ex-wife.
