How old is Tamara Rotolo?

Jazmin Grace Grimaldi’s mother, Tamara Rotolo, was born in California, United States of America, on October 25, 1961. As of 2023, Tamara is 61 years old. Though nothing is known about who her parents are, it is reported that she comes from a working-class family. She holds an American passport and also belongs to the white race.

There is no information on the educational background of Tamara. However, her daughter, Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, started her formal education at St. Margaret’s Episcopal School. After she graduated from the school in 2006, she went to JSerra High School, where she graduated in 2010. Jazmin was an honor student at the time of her graduation from JSerra High School. She received numerous awards and also had an opportunity to perform with Barry Manilow, a singer and songwriter with a career span of seven decades.

Tamara Rotolo started her professional life as a waitress. She worked in a hotel in the Cote d’Azur region of France, Monaco. After working several years in the hospitality industry, she took courses in real estate and currently works as a real estate broker, according to the Los Angeles Times. 

Tamara became popular in the mainstream media in 1992 when she first filed a case to seek child support from the father of her daughter, Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, Prince Albert II. Though her case was dismissed on jurisdictional grounds, Prince Albert II accepted Jazmin as his daughter after several investigations.

What happened between Tamara Rotolo and Prince Albert II, Prince of Monaco?

Tamara Rotolo and Prince Albert II have a daughter together. The daughter of the duo, who never dated or married, is Jazmin Grace Grimaldi. According to Harper’s Bazaar, Tamara and Prince Albert II met in 1991 in Monaco, where the Prince was having an official vacation.

When the two met, Tamara was a waitress at the hotel where the Prince was lodging. Prince Albert had an affair with Tamara, resulting in Jazmin’s birth out of wedlock. The news of their affair and the birth of Jazmin was a secret until Tamara Rotolo came out to claim child support from Prince Albert II.

Tamara first filed the case in Riverside County in the United States in 1992 to allege that Prince Albert was Jazmin’s father and claimed child support. Due to jurisdictional reasons, the case was dismissed by a Supreme Court judge in Riverside County. Nine years later, in 2001, Tamaro sued the lawyer who filed the case on her behalf for not telling her about how to go about the paternity case.

In 2006, Prince Albert II’s lawyer officially declared that the Prince had confirmed through investigations that Jazmin Grace Grimaldi was his daughter. Later reports suggested that the Prince did that to protect Jazmin. Though Jazmin is now a member of the Monaco royal family, she is not in the line of successors. This is because she was born out of wedlock.

However, Jazmin can inherit part of her father’s $1 billion net worth and her other half-siblings. Jazmin, a Fordham University graduate, is the half-sister of Alexandre Grimaldi-Coste, Princess Gabriella, and Hereditary Prince Jacques.

Tamara Rotolo took her daughter to meet Prince Albert II in Monaco for the first time in 2006. At the time of their visit, Jazmin was 11 years old. Security officials protested the mother and daughter from Gavin de Becker and Associates.

Has Tamara Rotolo ever been married?

Before Tamara met and had an affair with Prince Albert in 1991, she had been married and divorced once. Her first marriage was to a man named David Shumaker. Tamaro and David married in 1987 and finalized their divorce in 1992.

The story of Tamara’s first marriage was brought up when she filed a case against her paternity lawyer in 2001. There is no other information on Tamara’s first marriage.

Prince Albert II was born on March 14, 1958, in the Palace of Monaco. He is the second child and only son of Prince Rainier II and Princess Grace. As of 2023, Prince Albert II is 65 years old. He is a former Lycee Albert Premier and Amherst College student, where he studied political science.
