Paloma Jimenez and Vin Diesel have been together for thirteen years, and even though the pair have not yet tied the knot, things could have never been better. And even though the pair’s union was rocked in 2016 after Diesel’s alleged affair came to light. While Diesel denied all rumors and the pair look better than ever, it might be a wake-up call for Jimenez and cause her to re-evaluate her relationship with Diesel. A Mexican model and actress, Jimenz is best known for her relationship with Vin Diesel. And while she has enjoyed a considerable successful career as a model and an actress, Jimenez put her career on hold to work on her marriage.
Karla Paloma Jiménez Denagustin was born on the 22nd of August 1983, in Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico. Born and raised in a major seaport in the state of Guerrero on the Pacific coast of Mexico, not much is known about Jimenez’s early life. Jimenez was interested in acting and modeling from a very young age and had her work cut out. She graduated from a local high school in 2001 and started working as a professional model.
Owing to her stunning looks, Jimenez was able to turn heads in the modeling industry. Eventually, she made it to the front page of Maxim Mexico in 2005 and was signed by ID Model Management. Over the years, Jimenz has been represented by different agencies including ID Model Management and Look Models of Mexico. But for all the agencies she has worked with, Jimenez found the most success while working with Two Management, as she landed gigs with popular companies including Coca-Cola and Honda.
In 2005, Jimenez was also featured on the cover of ‘Max’ magazine. Over the years, Jimenez has regularly attended the Ready to Wear Spring/Summer fashion show and has walked the ramp for the likes of Alberto Rodríguez, Carlo Demichelis, Citrico, Guillermo Vargas, Hector Terrones, Jorge Castellanos Carmona, Lily of France, and Roberto Villareal. She also served as the brand ambassador of the hair care brand, Pantene, and has also had a one-off appearance on-screen on the Mexican comedy and variety show ‘Otro Rollo’ in 2014.
Owing to her career as a model, Paloma Jimenez has reported net worth of USD 5 Million.
Paloma Jimenez is in a committed relationship with Vin Diesel and the pair have been together since 2007. Even though Diesel is 16 years older than Jimenez, the pair didn’t let it stop them and have three kids, Hania Riley Sinclair, Vincent Sinclair, and Pauline Sinclair. Following the birth of her children, Jimenez decided to quit the ramp and has committed to raising their children.
In 2016, it was reported that Vin had cheated on Jimenez and had an illicit affair while in New York. While Vin promptly denied the claims, several sources reported that Diesel and Jimenez were calling things off. A source close to the pair even released a statement citing Diesel’s affairs.
“Vin has a double life. About a year ago, he met this girl at a party in NYC. They hit it off, one thing led to another and before you knew it, they were making out … That little fling turned into something more, which lasted for a couple of months. Vin and the woman had a whirlwind romance, based on sex. Vin’s secret was safe (until now) because the woman was also in a long-term relationship.”
Despite the accusations, Diesel and Jimenez have continued to remain together and the rumors have disappeared from the media.
