Chelsea has been married to businessman Jeff Lazkani since 2017, after they met on Tinder when Chelsea moved to America. They have two children together, Maddox and Melia.

In June 2016 he was promoted to the Vice President of the company and in 2021 he became the Managing Partner.

Jeff studied at the University of San Diego from 2002 to 2005 and achieved a degree in Business Admin and Management and Operations.

She has a business degree and a Master’s

Chelsea is clearly very, very smart – because she has a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s. She attended the University of Buckingham between 2011 and 2013 and achieved a degree in Business Economics and Economics, before heading to the University of Dundee from 2014 to 2015 where she got a Master’s in International Oil and Gas Management.

Chelsea is closest with Christine on Selling Sunset

Be prepared for drama, because Chelsea has said her closest Selling Sunset friend is Christine Quinn. “I just adore Christine. We have such a great relationship,” she said in an interview. She continued: “Emma and I have a very special connection. I think the world of Chrishell. To be honest with you, I just have a budding relationship with all the girls. I’m still getting to know some of them, but I didn’t know them before the show.”

She has 38k followers on Instagram
