However, the couple eventually divorced, and it wasn’t until the late-2000s that he would meet Steve Wynn.
Husband – Steve Wynn
Steve is known for his involvement in the luxury hotel and casino industry, becoming a part of the construction and operation of numerous popular Las Vegas establishments during his youth. He was also responsible for the creation of several notable locations in Atlantic City.
Some of his most popular projects include the Golden Nugget, Treasure Island, the Bellagio, and The Mirage. He has been credited for being one of the most important people during the expansion of the Las Vegas Strip in the 1990s, leading to a strong resurgence.
In 2000, he sold his company Mirage Resorts to MGM Grand Inc. which would pave the way for the creation of MGM Resorts International.
He then focused on his own company called Wynn Resorts, taking it public and gaining huge wealth from his various business endeavors. Some of his most popular establishments under Wynn Resorts include Wynn Las Vegas, Wynn Macau, Wynn Everett, Wynn Palace, and Encore Las Vegas. He was the CEO of the company until announcing his resignation in 2018.
He is known for being highly supportive of the Republican Party, and was even the finance chair of the Republican National Committee from 2017 to 2018.
Wynn’s Sexual Misconduct Accusations
In 2018, the publication The Wall Street Journal released a report that dozens of people have come forward as victims of sexual misconduct by Wynn. According to the report, former employees of his resorts have experienced Steve demanding nude massages and sexual acts from them. His former spouse also accused him of having a manicurist coerced to have sex with him in 2005, then paying her $7.5 million in a settlement, refusing to disclose the information to his board of directors.
He defended himself stating that the allegations from his ex-wife comes from their separation and divorce. However, the issues were enough for him to resign from the Republican National Committee, while also stepping down as the CEO of Wynn Resorts. His company later requested the removal of his name from the Massachusetts gaming license. Lawyer Lisa Bloom then came forward stating that she was representing a former dancer for Wynn, who is accusing the billionaire of forcing her to strip down to her underwear during rehearsals. He responded by filing a defamation lawsuit against Bloom.
A few months later information surfaced that Wynn had a settlement with another employee who accused him of sexual misconduct.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Hissom married Wynn in 2011 – they are both second spouses. Wynn was previously married to Elaine Pascal, from 1963 up to 2010, though they had divorced twice during this period. He has two daughters from that marriage. It is not known how Hissom is taking the news of all the sexual misconduct allegations coming her husband’s way, as she has remained silent.
One of the reasons why there is very limited information about her is due to the lack of any strong online presence. She does not have accounts on any of the major social media websites. The same can be said of her husband, though he lives a very public life due to his involvement in the development of the luxury hotel and casino scene. Wynn is no stranger to controversy, as he’s faced litigation numerous times in his life. He has filed defamation lawsuits, slander, and has also had financial issues with several business partners. However, this is the first time that he’s been bombarded with accusations of sexual misconduct.
