Inside Steven Seagal's $3,4M Bulletproof Mansion That He Bought after Marrying His 4th Wife
Steven Seagal rose to fame after starring in several action-packed films in the 80s. He has been married four times and lives in his bulletproof mansion, only befitting a seventh-degree aikido black belt actor.
Steven Seagal became a respected star after starring in the action films "Above the Law," "Hard to Kill," and "Under Siege." He would later star in the reality series "Steven Seagal: Lawman" and continued churning out action farewell into his 60s.
When he's not making films, the star retreats to his bulletproof mansion that overlooks the cities of Phoenix and Scottsdale and that he purchased shortly after marrying his fourth wife. Let's take a look into his marriages and his million-dollar fortress.

SEAGAL COMMITTED BIGAMY
In the 80s, Seagal ruled the box office as a martial arts master, and during an Aikido seminar in July 1974, the actor met Japanese Aikido instructor Miyako Fujitani. Initially, Fujitani was not attracted to Seagal and thought he was too skinny for her liking.
But as time went by, his eyes and soft-spoken nature appealed to her and the two married in December 1974. They welcomed two children, son Kentaro in 1975 and daughter Ayako in 1979. Unfortunately, the pair split in 1987.

In 1984, Seagal married "Days of Our Lives" actress Adrienne La Russa. It is crucial to note that this was three years before he split from his first wife. Reports claim that Russa was not aware that Seagal was married because their marriage became null on the grounds of bigamy that same year.
SEAGAL'S THIRD WIFE, KELLY LEBROCK, FELT SORRY FOR HIM
After splitting from his first wife in 1987, Seagal married his third wife, Kelly LeBrock, with whom she had three children Annalize, Dominic, and Arissa. Their marriage, however, ended in 1996 after the couple filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences."

Life post-divorce was, however, not easy for LeBrock. "I admit, I became a hermit. When I split with Steven, the divorce was very ugly, and details of the case were on the evening news." She told Mail Online, adding:
"I had absolutely no self-esteem. I hated myself. I decided to swap my old life in Beverly Hills for a new one in the country, in Santa Barbara."

Years after the two got divorced, LeBrock dubbed her ex-husband a "tragedy of Hollywood" after eleven women accused him of sexual assault and misconduct. She opened up to Page Six, saying:
"I feel sorry for the man."

"I think that he's just a very sad person, and he is what I would call a tragedy of Hollywood. I believe he was very bullied as a child, very sickly, very weak, and I guess people who are treated that way as children end up becoming lost as they age." She shared, adding:
"I wish him all the best."
Seagal, who has both Serbian and Russian citizenships, expressed his admiration for Russia's President Vladimir Putin and shared that despite the ongoing invasion of Ukraine, he still views Russia and Ukraine as "one family."
SEAGAL GOT MARRIED AT 58 FOR THE FOURTH TIME

After divorcing his third wife, the martial arts instructor-turned-action star took a long hiatus from love. Eventually, in 2009, he married his fourth wife, Mongolian native Erdenetuya "Elle" Batsukh.
Batsukh, a professional dancer, met Seagal in 2001 when she worked as his interpreter during a visit there. They met again in 2002 when Seagal visited Outer Mongolia trying to raise money to finance a film.
In 2004, she started working as his assistant, and five years later, the two married. They welcomed their first child together, son Kunzang, shortly after and remain married to date. A year after marrying Batsukh, Seagal purchased his bulletproof mansion, and he lives there with his family.

The 9-seater custom-made private theatre is also an attractive part of the home, designed to entertain both the owners and guests of the house, and is big enough to host private screenings.
On top of the breathtaking interior of Seagal's luxury abode, the carefree country chic home also has a two-story atrium and several flex rooms. The property also features a 600-square-foot guesthouse with a bedroom suite complemented by a fully-equipped kitchen and a living room with upscale amenities and comforts.
