Jaime King is an American model and actress with an estimated net worth of $3 million. She was born on April 23, 1979 in Omaha, Nebraska. Her mother is Nancy King, a former beauty queen, and her father is Robert King. She is one of four kids. She has one older sister, one younger sister and one younger brother. When she was about 15, her parents decided that their marriage would not work out. They decided to end their marriage in 1994, and it was a very difficult time for Jaime King. She was devastated that her parents could not make their marriage work, and that is when she decided to really focus on her own life and her own career. She decided to attend modeling school, which led her to drop out of high school a year later in 1995. She left to go to New York to model, though she did finish her education at home.
Leaving school to pursue a modeling career was easy for Jaime King, who had already been discovered as a potential model when she was only 14 in 1993. She was at a fashion show at a graduation when she was seen by an agent called Michael Flutie. He invited her to NYC to begin her modeling career professionally, and it was something that worked out well for her. She signed on as a model but they already had a Jaime in the mix, so she went by the name James King for many years as a model. Her first real job was for Abercrombie & Fitch, and it was very well-received.
She was only 15 by the time she was a very famous model. At that age, she’s already been featured in some of the most famous fashion magazines in the world, as well as some of the most famous print ads in the world. She modeled in runway shoes for names such as Chanel and Dior, and she was quickly becoming a very famous model. She spent many years modeling and becoming even more successful, and she was thrilled when she was able to move on with her career and become an actress, too. She was part of many different movies, but it was when she was cast in “Pearl Harbor,” that she really began her acting career.
From there, she was in many different movies, but it was her really great role as a southern belle and drama queen in the hit show Hart of Dixie that people loved her most in. She is married to Kyle Newman, whom she married in 2007. They have two children together, both sons, the second of whom gets to say his godmother is Taylor Swift. She suffers from endometriosis as well as polycystic ovary syndrome, and she was an addict addicted to heroin for 5 years from the time she was 14 until she was 19 and lost her boyfriend at the time to excessive heroin use. She’s been clean for many years.
