While he earns his living as an American music producer, little is known about Chris Ivery’s professional achievements. Instead of being in the spotlight because of his career successes, Ivery’s relationship with a Hollywood star is always in the spotlight when his name comes up.
Granted, Chris Ivery seems to have everything under control with his good looks, luxury life, a beautiful wife, adorable kids, and of course a great life; what more could a man ask for? However, there’s not that much to say about his past, which has been plagued by crime, about 13 if we count. All this in detail as you read on.
Who Is Chris Ivery?
Chris Ivery was born on February 7, 1967, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In the absence of any information about his parents and the family he grew up in, it can be assumed that he had a rough upbringing. This assumption follows on from his frequent clashes with the authorities, which he had at a young age. Already at the age of 19, he began to accumulate criminal charges, of which he was convicted in at least 13 cases. His crimes include drug trafficking, mail theft, forgery, credit card fraud, and parole violations. He has served three prison terms for his sentences.
However, he managed to excel in his academic activities and received a degree from the prestigious Havard University. Chris is obviously a new man and doing great work as a loving husband and doting father to his wife and children.
As a record producer, Chris’s career has not exactly been a public affair. His first record project is writing the lyrics to the song Cheers (Drink To That). The song was featured on the television show Smash, it became a hit and Chris was fully introduced to the music industry.
In addition to his musical exploits, Chris Ivery appeared in an episode of the MTV prank reality show Punk’d, where he played a prank on his wife. The record producer was also a guest on the talk show Entertainment Tonight.
Chris Ivery apparently makes a lot of money, even though he doesn’t flaunt his career. His net worth was last estimated in 2017 and is about $10 million. His luxurious Range Rover and a multimillion-dollar beach house in Malibu are proof enough of the lavish lifestyle he enjoys with his family.
His Wife (Ellen Pompeo) and Children
Chris Ivery and Ellen Pompeo, a world-class award-winning movie star, have been married for over a decade and still make us green with envy as they have maintained a happy home amidst controversy. The two met in a grocery store in 2003. They got to talking and discovered that they grew up only 10 miles from each other and that they support the same basketball team – the Boston Celtics.
After being together for several years, Chris and Ellen were married on November 9, 2007, with the Mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg, as best man at the ceremony, which took place at New York City’s City Hall. Barely two years after the exchange of vows, Chris Ivery and his wife welcomed a daughter, Stella Luna Pompeo Ivery (born September 15, 2009). The second bundle of joy came in 2014 from a surrogate mother – a daughter named Sienna May. Eli Christopher, a son, joined the family on December 29, 2016.
Ellen was never left out when it came to her husband’s dark past. He told her everything and she accepted him without conditions. This may have something to do with the stable relationship the two have enjoyed since they met in 2003.
On the career front, Ellen makes more waves than her husband. She has widely known for her role as Meredith Grey in the long-running series Grey’s Anatomy. She earns $575,000 per episode and $20 million annually on the popular series. Apparently, Grey’s Anatomy accounts for most of her net worth, estimated at around $40 million, but she also has other film and television recordings. On television, she has played roles in Law & Order, Friends, The Job, and many others, while her film credits include projects such as Catch Me If You Can, Old School, Daredevil, Art Heist, Life of the Party, and several others.
