Who is Paloma Jimenez?
Karla Paloma Jimenez Denagustin was born on 22 August 1983, in Acapulco, Mexico, and is a model, but is probably best recognised for being the partner of actor Vin Diesel, who’s known for his work in “The Fast and Furious” film series, and the “Guardians of the Galaxy” films inwhich he voices Groot.
The Wealth of Paloma Jimenez
How rich is Paloma Jimenez? As of mid-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is at $5 million, mostly earned through a successful career as a model, in her home country as well as other places around the world. Her net worth has also said to have been elevated by Vin, who has a net worth estimated at $160 million. As she seems likely to continue her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
A Path to Modelling
Very little information is available about the early life of Paloma including her family, childhood and education. It is known that she began modelling in her home country, and would then expand her reach to the United States. She started doing projects in both countries having agent representation in both, by ID Model Management in the US and by Look Models in Mexico. She started by appearing in major ad campaigns, which boosted her net worth significantly as well as her popularity, earning herself boosts to her resume. She’s been a part of print advertisements of big brands such as Pantene, Coca-Cola, and Honda, and her popularity grew further when she started being featured in various popular magazines – she has even been seen on the cover of the Mexican publication of “Maxim”.
Aside from modelling, Jimenez has also acted, mainly as a part of local shows in Mexico. She was a part of the long-running variety show “Otro Rollo with: Adal Ramones” which ran from 1995 until 2007, and featured numerous celebrities in the past, including Ricky Martin, Sofia Vergara and Christina Aguilera. The show presented a lot of live music, plus interviews and sketches.

He was initially in a relationship with “Fast and Furious” co-star Michelle Rodriguez, then in 2007, he started a relationship with Paloma and they have been together ever since. The couple has been known for their 16-year age difference, but that hasn’t stopped their relationship. They now have two daughters and a son – their third child was born in 2015 and was named Pauline after Vin’s late actor friend and “Fast and the Furious” co-star Paul Walker who passed away following a tragic car accident in 2013.
Supporting Diesel’s Career
Since starting their relationship, the two have been seen together at various red carpet events, with Jimenez often supporting her boyfriend throughout their careers. One of their most notable appearances came in 2013 when Vin earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, with Paloma at his side when he accepted the honor, along with their children and Vin’s parents. She has also appeared with her husband at all of his movie premiers, and many other red carpet dates.
In 2016, there came rumors that their relationship was hitting problems after accusations that Vin had an affair, and that Jimenez was threatening to go back to modelling, but the story was later proved false. The couple are still strong together, but they like to maintain their relationship in private. Vin stated that when it comes to his personal life, he’s not going to put it in front of any media – he prefers a code of silence, similar to Harrison Ford, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino.
Is Paloma Jimenez on Social Media?
One of the reasons why there isn’t much known publicly about Paloma is the fact that she does not have any social media profiles. There are Twitter accounts and Facebook accounts named after her but they are fan accounts, only posting content that can also be seen elsewhere, so current updates are non-existent, except that she left modelling some time ago to focus more on her family.
