And what makes her life so interesting to look into? Here is everything you need to know about Elaine Starchuk.
Elaine Starchuk’s Early Life
Elaine Starchuk was born on April 7th of the year 1964. She was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Elaine’s father was a lawyer while her mother was a secretary for a local company. Elaine was an only child who attended church with her parents every Sunday. She was very athletic in high school. Elaine was particularly fond of playing soccer.
Elaine Starchuk always wanted to be a supermodel. Before she even started this career she underwent breast enlargement surgery. She was so passionate about this dream that she began modeling as early as 18 years old. At the time, she quit school and started working with a modeling agency in Vancouver, Canada.
Shortly after the beginning of her career as a model, she would move to the United States of America and started working for Playboy Magazine as a playboy bunny. Elaine would start to be recognized from working at Playboy and living at the Playboy Penthouse.
Elaine Starchuk and Her Marriage to Tommy Lee
Tommy Lee is a famous musician. He is well known for being the long-term drummer and one of the founders of the popular heavy metal band, Mötley Crüe. He has been married several times. The man has been married a total of four times, most recently in 2019. However, his first wife was Elaine Starchuk.
Tommy Lee was two years older than Elaine. Elaine’s modeling career was just taking off at the same time Tommy Lee’s band started to become more popular. She had some involvement with other members of the band but ended up dating Lee for two years. No one was surprised when the two announced that they were getting married in 1984. However, after only seven days of marriage, the two decided to get a divorce. Nowadays we are so used to celebrities having incredibly short marriages, but at the time this came as a shock to many.
An exact reason for the quick split of the couple is not known. Some believe that he might have abused her due to abuse allegations against him from his later wives. Others posit that Elaine had stabbed Tommy with a pen. This claim is based on a moment from the 2019 Mötley Crüe biographical drama, The Dirt. However, neither Elaine Starchuk nor Tommy have said anything about either of these claims. They also did not have any children together.
