Ex-wife of real-life Wolf of Wall Street Jordan Belfort claims he lit her clothes and jewelry ON FIRE then kicked her down the STAIRS when she tried to leave – but insists they are ‘all OK’ now and even watched movie about their lives together

The woman who was married to the real-life Wolf of Wall Street has revealed that he lit her clothes and jewelry on fire and ‘kicked her down the stairs’ when she tried to leave him – but claimed they ended up back on good terms after he got out of prison, and even watched the movie together when it premiered.

Nadine Macaluso, 55, who now works as a marriage counselor and family therapist in California, met Jordan Belfort, 61, when she was just 22 years old and working as a model.

The two soon became engulfed in a whirlwind romance, tying the knot in 1991 and welcoming two children together, before they ultimately divorced in 2005 after 14 years of marriage. 

After they went their separate ways, Nadine accused the financial crook of physical and mental abuse, which she said was fueled by his rampant drug addiction and multiple infidelities.

Their tumultuous relationship – as well as Jordan’s illicit stock market scheme, which saw him steal nearly $200 million from investors – was portrayed in the wildly popular 2013 flick Wolf of Wall Street, which starred Leonardo DiCaprio as Jordan and Margot Robbie as Nadine, who was renamed Naomi for the movie.

The model-turned-therapist has become a viral TikTok star in a recent months for spilling numerous secrets about their marriage – and revealing which scenes of the Martin Scorsese film were accurate and which were exaggerated for the sake of views.

Most recently, she spoke out about the ‘horrific’ part that showed Jordan beat Naomi before attempting to steal their daughter while he was high on cocaine – and while Nadine admitted that some of it wasn’t true, she claimed Jordan did get violent with her and try to take their children away when she told him she wanted to end their relationship.

In the scene, Naomi tells Jordan that she wants a divorce, that she’s going to request full custody of their two kids, and that she’ll only allow him to visit if he agrees to the divorce then and there – which sparked a fierce reaction from the stock broker.

But according to Nadine, that’s not how it went down in real life. She stated in a recent TikTok video, ‘That scene starts with me telling Jordan that I’m going to take his children from him. That never happened. 

‘I never told Jordan once – when he was in jail, when he got indicted, or any other time – that I would take his children from him.’

In the movie, as Jordan becomes more and more enraged, he starts to get physical with Naomi – ultimately punching her in the gut, grabbing their daughter from her bed, and trying to drive away with the youngster before crashing into a wall.

‘What actually happened was, as you see in the movie, Jordan had a severe drug addiction and I was really thinking he was going to kill himself,’ Nadine recalled.

‘What I said to him was, “I’m not going to sit here and watch you kill yourself.” So I told him I was going to leave him unless he went to rehab. 

‘He lit my clothing and jewelry on fire, he threw them in the fireplace and he got really, really angry with me. 

But according to Nadine (seen with their two kids), that's not how it went down in real life. She stated in a recent TikTok video, 'That never happened. 'I never told Jordan once - when he was in jail, when he got indicted, or any other time - that I would take his children from him'

‘He told me he was going to take my daughter to Florida, and I was like, “No, over my dead body.” 

‘At that moment was when he got violent with me and he kicked me down the stairs. That was actually how that scene happened in real life.’

Nadine added that ‘the good news’ was that Jordan did eventually get sober and that they’re ‘OK’ now.

‘The good news is, he did get sober and I do believe it saved his life,’ she concluded. ‘And we’re all OK today. 

‘Actually, he came over to my house on the day that the movie came out 10 years ago.’

In the end, she warned others to ‘not tell someone’ who has a drug addiction that ‘you’re going to leave them’ because it could be dangerous.

Nadine has discussed other moments from the movie on her TikTok account – where she’s racked up more than 308,000 followers – including that X-rated scene between her and Jordan in their daughter’s nursery, which Margot later admitted she ‘dreaded’ filming.

It shows Naomi and Jordan arguing after Naomi catches Jordan cheating on her. She then attempts to mess with the crook by spreading her legs and making him want her, before telling him that he won’t be allowed to touch her for a while.

She even starts pleasuring herself – with their daughter just inches away in her crib – before he points out that there’s a secret camera hidden in the baby’s teddy bear, which meant their security team had a full view of the action. 

It then cuts to show two guards watching it all play out on tape, before she runs out of the room horrified.

Nadine stated on TikTok that the interaction never actually happened in real life.

‘So many of you have asked me, is that scene in the nursery real? Well, I’m going to break it down for you,’ she said. ‘Did that ever happen? No way. I am not that sexy, I wish I was.’

Nadine theorized that the nursery scene was likely Jordan’s ‘fantasy of what he wanted her to be like.’ The movie was based off of an autobiography he wrote of the same name. 

‘There were cameras in the room,’ she continued. ‘But I did not perform that sexual seductive act towards him.’ 

In another video shared last October, Nadine revealed that the awkward moment when Jonah Hill’s character, Donnie Azoff – who was based on real-life stockbroker Danny Porush – exposed himself and began to masturbate in front of her in the movie was totally real.

In the film, Jordan and Naomi were seen meeting for the first time at a party, after Jordan and his friends took a sedative called Quaalude. 

When Jordan attempted to talk to Naomi, his actions were overshadowed after his pal Donnie unzipped his pants and started to touch himself – and according to Nadine, that part was pretty accurate.

‘So you guys have been asking, “How did you meet Belfort, the Wolf of Wall Street?” Well it’s actually pretty similar to the movie,’ she explained. 

‘I was 22 years old and modeling, my boyfriend at the time said, “Do you want to go to the party in West Hampton at a house on the beach?” I was like, “Sure.” 

‘We pulled up and I remember walking into the house. There were all these people and they were acting really weird. Little did I know, they were all Quaalude-d out, I had no idea.

‘They were all there with their wives but they were making lewd and weird comments. 

‘That scene where someone exposes himself to me was true. I actually got terrified by that.

‘I’m 22 and I said to my boyfriend at the time, “We have to leave this party,” and we left right away.’

She did not confirm who the person was who committed the crude act. Danny has insisted that Jonah’s portrayal of him in the film ‘is not him,’ and that he never engaged in many of the antics seen throughout the movie.

The the mother-of-two added in another TikTok that she was ‘mortified’ when she found out they were making the movie about her and Jordan because she was convinced it would ruin her career as a therapist.

‘When I first found out they were going to make the movie The Wolf Of Wall Street – I think it was around 2011-2012 – needless to say, I was mortified,’ she admitted. 

‘I had already lived this complete Greek tragedy and then it was going to be splashed all over the world. My trauma for the world to see. 

‘And it was doubly traumatizing because I was getting my doctorate in psychology, so I was like, “Who the hell is going to want to see me as a therapist?”‘

Nadine added that she was angry about the film because it wasn’t her ‘narrative’ and she wouldn’t be getting paid for it – but that in the end, it actually helped her career.

‘I was annoyed, it wasn’t my narrative, I made no money, I had no creative input but then all of a sudden, I realized it was going to happen and it was bigger than me,’ she said.

‘And, ironically what happened was in my therapy practice, people said to me, “Wait I want to come see you as a therapist because you went through that and you got over here and this is the life that you lead, you walk your talk. So in the end, it all worked out.’

Now, she’s ‘ready to share her side of the story.’

I’m ready to share my side of the story and the wisdom I’ve learned along the way,’ she stated in another TikTok.

‘I am very ready now to tell my truth on exactly what happened through my experience, my narrative, and my lens as a mother, wife, daughter, daughter-in-law, and most importantly a therapist and educated woman.’
