Leticia Cline, the girlfriend of “American Pickers” star Mike Wolfe, is making a name for herself with her $200k business empire.
According to The Sun, the 43-year-old journalist/model/entrepreneur has amassed her empire from commercial property. She also owns a bar called The Dive and a motorcycle garage called Smiley’s Garage.
Cline is also a city councilwoman and has some acting credits from her past. She said she’s an avid traveler on her website, averaging 20,000 miles on her motorcycles each year.
Since last year, the 57-year-old Mike Wolfe has dated the Kentucky-born woman. The two have shared a friendship since 2018. Recently, the website said Cline bought $110,000 in real estate in her hometown of Cave City.
