Tom Selleck’s First Wife, Jacqueline Ray’s Wiki
Jacqueline Mary Ray was born on 17 July 1952, in Burbank, California USA, which means that she is 66 years old, her zodiac sign is Cancer, and her ethnicity and nationality is American. She is perhaps still best known for her roles in projects such as “Magnum P.I” and “In like Flint”, playing the role of Lisa in the former and Denise in the latter. Besides that, she is widely known among the media as the ex-wife of actor Tom Selleck.
Wedding and HusbandsJacqueline’s first husband was named Shephard and the couple had one child together, a son named Kevin, now known as Kevin Selleck , as he tooe the last name of his step father, Tom Selleck. In mid-May 1971, Tom Selleck and Jacqueline married, at the time when the actor was reportedly struggling to make it in the world of entertainment. However, the couple divorced 11 years after, as Ray reportedly wasn’t able to handle the attention her husband was getting from female fans. Ten years after divorcing Selleck, Ray married for the third time, to Clarence Barry Witmer, on 21 March 1992, but their marriage apparently soon fell through as well, and they divorced shortly afterwards. After that, she dated a man unknown to the media, and from that relationship, she had a daughter named Umeko Ray. Unfortunately, the actress has never been active on social media, which makes it harder for her fans to keep in touch with her.
Ray’s life took a turn due to the crime that she committed, as she hired a hit man to kill her son-in-law. According to sources, her daughter was abused by her husband, Leon Bauchum, who was also abusive to their children. This resulted in Jacqueline hiring Luis Barker to murder him -reportedly Bauchum was first beaten, then shot by Luis, and his body was dumped on the side of the road. Jacqueline paid the hitman $12,000, and as a result was sentenced to 18 years in prison. The story regarding the mentioned event was covered in detail by the media.
So just how rich is Jacqueline Ray as of late 2018? According to authoritative sources, this actress and former model has net worth of less than $100,000, accumulated largely from her modelling, acting and divorce settlements. She hasn’t disclosed any information regarding assets such as houses and cars.
