Carter Belfort is the second child and the only son Jordan, and Nadine Caridi had. He is a New Yorker born on August 15, 1995. Even though he was born to a rich dad, we can see that he must have had a very stressful childhood.
When Carter was born, Nadine and Jordan’s relationship had turned sour. They both spent most of their energy quarreling with each other when and if Jordan was around the house.
It was primarily because of Carter’s father, Jordan Belfort, lifestyle and addiction. He spent most of his time either at work, partying, or high because of drug consumption.
Needless to say, as a child, seeing your parents fight every day must have had a lot of stress. Also, as a son having Jordan, a less-than-ideal father figure might have had a negative impact.
Carter Belfort has an avid interest in education and knowledge. He has a high school diploma from Vistamar School and completed higher studies at Muhlenberg College. Carter attained his Bachelor’s degree from Los Angeles Film School and got his Arts, Entertainment, and Media Management degree. He is looking forward to enrolling in a Master’s degree as well.
Before joining his father’s legacy, Carter did four internships at ROAR. For five months, he was also a marketing intern at Elevator Studio, West Hollywood, California.
Carter’s father, Jordan, has always been very protective of children and has kept his children’s information private. Carter was born on August 15. He is a Leo.
Leo men are very dignified, playful, ambitious, loyal, and extraordinarily generous.
Carter Belfort has a keen interest in music, and he has a passion for hip-hop music and rapping. However, he also has an artistic side to him. He raps and goes by the name “The Drunken Poet.”
Carter Belfort’s relationships
Jordan Belfort (father)
Jordan has a humble upbringing. In 1985, he married his high school sweetheart Denise Lombardo. He was just 23 years old at the time.
Jordan sold Italian Ice for a living. After going bankrupt, he began looking for work. Belfort worked for L.F. Rothschild, a trainee stockbroker. It is where he sharpened his skill and knowledge of stocks. Soon he was terminated from the job due to the Black Monday stock market crash.
A few years later, Belfort started his own company, Stratton Oakmont.
One of his office parties brought him into contact with Nadine Caridi. Her boyfriend introduced Jordan to Nadine. Jordan married Nadine in 1991. The couple had two children from their marriage, Chandler Belfort (daughter) and Carter Belfort (son).
Jordan Belfort made a lot of money from money laundering and securities fraud (penny stock scam). He used the money to finance his frivolous lifestyle. Eventually, Belfort was arrested on charges of fraud. Carter Belfort’s father was sentenced to 22 months in prison for his crimes and ordered to pay 50% of his income as restitution. Total restitution is 110 million dollars.
Note: We have covered in detail Jordan Belfort’s biography
Nadine Caridi (mother)
Nadine Caridi is the biological mother of Nadine Caridi. She was a British model attending the office party thrown by Jordan. She was introduced to Jordan by her ex-boyfriend Alan Wilzig.
Alan wrote on his Facebook, “Twenty-odd years ago while “The Wolf” was still growing his fangs, I had my first post-college relationship. At the end of year 2, as friendly-exes I took Nadine to Jordan Belfort’s July 4th Westhampton Beach House party, where the two of them met. He left his high school sweetheart wife to marry her, and the rest you can see in the movie.”
Jordan’s movie and the book suggest that she was attracted to his lifestyle, wealth, and success. He accused her of being a golddigger.
Jordan says, “To call someone a gold digger is always more complicated than that. Was my second wife a gold digger? Well yeah, but she loved money and nice things. It wasn’t like I was a fat, 60-year-old man with a potbelly and no hair – I was a handsome 25-year-old guy myself. I was no fucking Robert Redford, but you get the point. Certain women gained a reputation as gold diggers in the early 2000s, but you can always look through that. But I don’t think there is also anything wrong with a woman liking nice things. It is a biological reflex action to want a man who is going to secure the future of your children. This goes back to the caveman days.”
Nadine accused Jordan of doing crack in front of the newborn baby in an interview. In addition, he was sexually active with hookers and came home late.
