Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia’s relationship is one of the most unique ones in Hollywood. The couple still works together even after their failed marriage. Garcia became Johnson’s manager in 2008, a year after they announced their separation. The duo has had enormous success in the business world working together.
The former bodybuilder in an interview with Marie Claire spoke about people’s reaction to them working together after their divorce. Garcia revealed that she had to get comfortable with the situation very quickly.
“I did have to overcome judgments like, ‘Wait, is his ex-wife managing him?’ People are trying to put you in a category—not in a bad way, but just so they know how to relate. I had to become very comfortable, very quickly, with creating a new paradigm: ‘Yes, I am his manager. Yes, we were once married. Now, let’s go build sh*t together.'” Garcia said.
Garcia and Johnson own the famous production company Seven Bucks Production. The company has produced some of Johnson’s career-best films. The duo also owns the popular football league XFL which was relaunched in 2023.
