Monica Diaz Appears To Be In Her 30s

As we pointed out earlier, not much is known about Monica Diaz and some of the mystery surrounding her life extends to the fact that the public and media have no idea of when the former celebrity spouse was born. Before her marriage to Peters, she was relatively just like every other person and her marriage to the comedian did little to fully expose her identity. The relatively short length of the marriage meant that there wasn’t enough time to dig into the identity and early life of the former Mrs. Russell Peters.

Just by looking at Monica Diaz, one could easily say that she is in her 30s, although it would be hard to say if she was in her early or late 30s as Latin American women are famously known for looking less than their actual ages. Certain reports claim that Monica was born in Panama but grew up in the United States of America. If those reports are anything to go by, it would simply suggest that Monica Diaz is a naturalized American citizen.

Monica Diaz Became Russell Peters’ Wife In 2010

The exact timeline of the beginning of Monica’s relationship with comedian Russell Peters is unknown. However, a few months into the relationship, Peters pulled off an elaborate engagement at Los Angeles International Airport on July 10, 2010. Monica said yes to his proposal and not long after, they were officially a married couple. The wedding ceremony was held in Las Vegas on August 20, 2010, and was attended by a relatively small company of 20 guests, including close friends, family members, and associates.

Monica Diaz And Russell Peters Divorced Due To Irreconcilable Differences

Monica Diaz’s marriage was quite short-lived as it ended around 2 years after it had begun, in 2012. The couple, Russell, in particular, has revealed that the reason why the length of their marriage was so short was primarily down to the fact that they rushed into marriage without taking the time to learn more about each other.

When they eventually learned those things about each other that they should have before marriage, they discovered that the marriage was ultimately bound to fail and made the mutual decision to end it cordially and without rancor.

Monica’s ex-husband, Russell Peters took the initiative to inform the public of the impending divorce during an interview he was a part of in March 2012. The finer details of the divorce proceedings have been sealed from the public and as such, there is no information about what sort of agreement the ex-couple came to in order to finalize their divorce processes.

Monica Diaz Had One Child With The Comedian

Monica Diaz is a mother of one. She and her now-ex-husband became parents around 4 months after they officially became husband and wife. On December 14, 2010, Monica Diaz and her ex-husband welcomed their first and only child together, a daughter who they named Crystianna Marie Peters. Crystianna’s impending birth helped to fast-track the marriage between Russell Peters and Monica Diaz.

In an interview, he granted following his divorce from Monica Diaz, Peters admitted to the fact that he made the rather rash decision to get married to Diaz so as not to have their child born out of wedlock and it was a decision he says he shouldn’t have made.

Monica’s daughter, Crystianna’s, welfare was equally considered when her parents decided to go their separate ways. Peters states that he and Monica didn’t want their daughter to get used to them living as a family and so they made the decision to divorce when she was just a year and a few months old.

She Appears To Be Currently Single

Since her divorce from Peters, Monica has seamlessly disappeared from the public eye and consciousness. She has kept a rather low profile and this has led to the fact that there is little to no information about her. At one point, there were speculations that she was remarried to a rich businessman from the middle east, although Monica herself has never come out to deny or confirm those rumors. The unsure status of that speculation has invariably led to the assumption that Monica Diaz might still be single.

On the other hand, her ex-husband has already been in a relationship with three different women. He was reported to have been briefly engaged to a woman named Ruzanna Khetchian in 2016 before pitching his tent with Jennifer Andrade, winner of the 2012 edition of Miss Universe Honduras. They had a son together in April 2019 and named him Russell Santiago Peters. Peters is currently married to Ali Peters and their wedding took place at the Ritz Carlton in Dana Point, California, on February 20, 2022.

Monica Diaz Has Been Absent From Public View Since Her Divorce

As earlier stated, Monica Diaz returned to a life of privacy after her divorce in 2012. She has rarely made any public appearance since her divorce and as such, not much is known about exactly what she does for a living or how successful she is at it. She is reportedly worth $350k which could be a result of the funds she most likely got from her divorce about a decade ago.

On the other hand, her ex-husband, Russell Peters is worth over $50 million which includes all the houses and assets he has accumulated from his more than 30-year career as a comedian. The Canadian comedian began his career in Toronto and attributes his success to the influence of the late George Carlin, another comedian who impressed on him the need to perform whenever he got the opportunity to do so.

Over a long distinguished career, Peters has picked up several awards for his outstanding abilities as a stage performer. The awards include but are not limited to a Peabody Award, Best Arts Programming Emmy Award, and a Gemini Award from his home country of Canada in 2008.
