Is Chelsea Lazkani’s husband, Jeff, slowly working his way into more screen time? 

On Selling Sunset season 6, we catch the dad of two joining his wife for dinner with her boss, Jason Oppenheim, and Oppenheim's new girlfriend, Marie-Lou Nurk. At first glance, it might seem as if he's simply tagging along on his wife's outing, but did you know that he was actually the one who met the O Group leader first? Did you know Lazkani almost bought Kanye West's old house? 

Sometimes the quietest cast members have the best stories. There's plenty left unsaid about Jeff on the Netflix series, but we're here to fill you in. 

Who is Chelsea Lazkani’s husband, Jeff?

Jeff is a 40-year-old California native and a University of San Diego alumn who now works as the managing partner for Icon Media Direct, a business of "strategists, media planners, negotiators, data scientists, and visionaries."

Unlike Chelsea's bold personality and even bolder style—wait until you see the fur boots she wears to the girls' trip to *Palm Springs*, a.k.a. a very warm location—Jeff tends to keep to himself and remains relatively low-key and drama-free. (We can't say the same for Chelsea, especially now that she's had beef with O Group newcomer, Bre Tiesi and had close ties with villainess Christine Quinn.) He has 2,100 Instagram followers compared to his wife's 400,000, and even keeps his account set to private. Perish the thought!

However, now that he's starting to get a few cameos here and there, we figured it's high time to learn more about Chelsea's counterpart.

What is Jeff Lazkani's net worth?

Jeff Lazkani's net worth is somewhat of a mystery but is estimated to be anywhere between $250,000 to $500,000, according to Express UK. Combined with his wife, they're likely worth $1 million. (If you're curious, here's where they stand amongst other Selling Sunset cast members' net worths.)

Who is Jeff Lazkani's mother?

Nancy Lazkani was a single mother, but in 2000, she managed to found a media company, Icon Media Direct, a.k.a. the one where her son has spent his career thus far. The two seemingly share a close relationship, but Jeff tends to keep family details private. During another season six cameo, he did make mention of drop off at pre-school for his daughter, though we don't get a look inside their family this go-around.

How did Chelsea Lazkani meet her husband?

Eleven years between them, Chelsea and Jeff crossed paths in 2015, and the rest was history. At the time, Chelsea had been visiting Cali from the U.K. Two years later, they were man and wife, and then two years after that, they welcomed their son Maddox Ali Lavon, followed by their daughter, Melia Iman.

Chelsea confessed how her short US trip turned into forever on—where else—Instagram. "Almost two years ago, I came to Los Angeles for what was meant to be a short break. I stayed because I fell in love. It was the best decision I've ever made," she wrote alongside a professional photo.

When she received her real estate license in 2017, she had been a Selling Sunset fan and turned to her hubby for help scoring a spot at the Oppenheim Group office. 

"I knew Jason through my husband and I said to him, “What do I have to do?” You kind of see how it played out on screen. I wasn’t sure whether I was going to get in or not," she told Vogue

Overall, everything seemed to work out swimmingly. Not only did this connection via Jeff lead to a job and a reality show, but an opportunity for Chelsea to represent other Black women in the field. 

"I knew going into this experience, like every other experience in my life, that if I’m going to represent, I want to represent in the best way possible, and that is being strong, confident, and opinionated, even when I don’t feel like it, because my voice is going to be used as the voice for everybody who looks like me. I’m not doing this just for myself," she further revealed to Vogue
