How rich was Leanne Goggins? As of late-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that was at $300,000, earned through success in her various endeavors. Her wealth was also significantly elevated thanks to the success of her husband, who has a net worth that is estimated at $8 million. All of her achievements ensured the position of her wealth until her passing.
Early Life and Business
Very little information is available about Leanne’s childhood or education, as there was never a lot of media coverage about her life before she met Walton. It is known that she grew up in Canada, and at a young age discovered a strong passion for pets, particularly dogs. This eventually led her to start her own dog walking business which gave her the opportunity to work on her passion, and be surrounded by the animals she loved the most. She took dogs on numerous activities including running, swimming and hiking. Her wealth started to increase thanks to the opportunities she was getting.

His next major role came when he was cast in the pilot episode of the series “Justified”, playing a recurring character, as he also worked on the film “Predators”. During the second season, he was promoted to a main cast member, and he continued to flourish in the entertainment industry, appearing in the film “Cowboys & Aliens”, and would then draw an Emmy Award nomination for his role in “Justified”. A few of his most recent projects include the film “Django Unchained”, the series “Sons of Anarchy”, and “The Hateful Eight” which is a Western film directed by Quentin Tarantino.
Marriage, Divorce, and Death
According to reports, Leanne met Walton in 2000 and the two started dating shortly afterwards. A year into their relationship, the two decided to marry, the ceremony held after Walton had completed shooting for the film “Shanghai Noon” alongside Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson. They stayed married for the next three years, until things started to fall apart. Sources state that she was becoming unhappy with the relationship due to her husband’s busy schedule, and disliked living in Los Angeles.
She wanted to return home to her native Canada, and she was the one to apply for a divorce, eventually ending their marriage. Prior to their divorce, the couple was often seen attending various events and functions together. However, after the divorce they stopped all communication; all of their photos together were also removed from their respective online accounts. It was later revealed that Leanne had passed away, jumping from the 17th floor of the building she was in and dying from injuries afterwards. She had apparently suffered from chronic depression. which led her to commit the act.
While the news came as a shock to Walton, the two were already separated and divorced so the impact of her loss wasn’t as great as it might have been, though it took him some time for him to move forward. It wasn’t until 2011 that he was able to start a relationship once more, with filmmaker Nadia Conners – the two married in 2011, and would have a son together. Since it has been more than a decade since the loss of his ex-wife, he has not mentioned anything about her in recent years. Aside from his family, he is focused on his various photography efforts, and travels during his free time. He is also active in work with several non-profit organizations.
According to various reports at the time, many people around the area mourned Leanne’s loss as she was close to many of the residents due to her dog-walking business. There were some rumors that were spreading stating that some form of foul play was involved, but investigations released all leaned on the indication that she committed suicide. Many also sympathized with Walton, and the events led to more exposure of depression as well as mental health. There aren’t any more details available online, as social media back then wasn’t as popular as it is today. In recent interviews, Walton says that he is focused more on his career and his current family. He is enjoying married life and has adjusted well to it.
