As she returns to the ITV show, viewers want to know more about Janice Dickinson's personal life, alongside why she left the jungle in a recent shock exit.

Is Janice Dickinson married?

Janice Dickinson has been married to Robert Gerner since 2016, having first met in 2012. Gerner - who she calls "Rocky" - is Dickinson's fourth husband, having previously been married to Ron Levy (1977 to 1979), Simon Fields (1987to 1993), and Alan B Gersten (1995 to 1996).

Dr Robert Gerner is a psychiatrist, and the pair got married in a small ceremony in Beverly Hills. According to PEOPLE, the pair met when they were set up on a blind date by Gerner's son, Robert Gerner Jr. Dickinson told the publication: "It’s taken me half a century to find a soulmate and thanks to the universe my stars were aligned the day Rocky and I met. He’s the best and he’s the brightest man I’ve ever met."

Janice Dickinson has also been romantically linked to actor Sylvester Stallone and the pair had an affair in 1994, while Dickinson was dating film producer Michael Birnbaum and Stallone was engaged to Jennifer Flavin.

They were then engaged for six months, but broke of the romance when a DNA test revealed that Stallone wasn't the father of the child Dickinson had given birth to six weeks previously.

Does Janice Dickinson have children?

Janice Dickinson has two children. Her eldest son, Nathan, was born in 1987 and his father is her second husband Simon Fields, while her daughter, Savannah, was born in 1994 and is shared with ex-boyfriend Michael Birnbaum.

Nathan is now working in the film industry with his father, and they have their own production company, Fields Entertainment, where Nathan works as a producer. 

Nathan has previously spoken out about being "teased" as a child over details of his mother's personal life, telling the Mail Online, "Some kids teased me when I was younger about her sleeping with so many famous men and stuff, but I'm not interested."

It was Dickinson's second child, Savannah, who was rumoured to be Sylvester Stallone's daughter before a DNA test proved otherwise. Savannah also works in TV and film, having appeared in Netflix’s crime drama centred around Ted Bundy, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, and worked on the streaming service's TV series The Big Show Show

Savannah has also worked as a script coordinator for Hulu and Apple TV, according to her LinkedIn.

Janice Dickinson net worth

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Janice Dickinson has a net worth of $500,000.

Dickinson's reported net worth is lower than that of many of peers, such as Kelly LeBrock who has a net worth of $10million, and it has been suggested that this may be partly down to the fact she filed for bankruptcy in 2013. The Los Angeles Times reported that the supermodel had racked up nearly $1 million in debt to the government as well as plastic surgeons and cosmetic-procedure professionals.

Janice Dickinson has been open about undergoing plastic surgery procedures in the past, and has admitted to having a facelift, breast implants, tummy tuck, neck lift, liposuction and Botox.
