Starring in “Storage Wars” for a number of years definitely has its perks. Just ask Brandi Passante.
The A&E series has been a massive success, and that’s in large part due to the cast of colorful characters. One of those characters is the feisty, Brandi Passante. She does not play games when she has her mind set on a locker, and it’s paid some big ole dividends.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Passante has amassed a fortune. Her net worth comes in around $2 Million.
She started out on the show back in 2010 and is still a permanent fixture on the series. And over time, the show has only gotten more popular.
As fans are well aware, Passante and her former partner Jarrod Schulz made one heck of a team. The two actually called it quits not too long ago.
Before their falling out though, the pair regularly racked up on “Storage Wars,” and even had a couple of their own shows. They were featured in an A&E special called “Brandi & Jarrod: Married to the Job” back in 2014.
‘Storage Wars’: Brandi Passante and Jarrod Schulz Call It Quits
Passante and Schulz ran a thrift shop called Now and Then Second Hand Store in Orange County. The two sold their treasure finds from old lockers, and after Schulz’s aunt encouraged them to do so, the two started hunting for profit, according to TV Shows Ace.
Brandi and Jarrod have two children together. However, the two never tied the knot. Back in June of 2020, the two parted ways. Earlier this year, in May of 2021, authorities arrested Jarrod for domestic battery.
Last month, Passante revealed a tattoo commemorating the day she left her “Storage Wars” costar. The pic shows Passante holding her hand just so in order to display a tattoo that reads “free.”
The artwork symbolizes a free bird, which, of course, many assumed had a connection to the iconic Lynyrd Skynyrd song. However, Passante says the meaning goes much deeper.
“Although, everyone assumes, this means that I am a huge, ‘Lynyard Skynyard’ [sic] fan…
I do love this song! But, this tattoo means so much more. To me, it means that somehow, by the grace of god, I managed to escape a very difficult situation, that so many people fall victim to. I will be eternally grateful, for the life and freedom, without fear that I get to live now. I am also grateful for the empathy and grace, that I am able to give others as a result of the things, that I have endured! I love you all & thank you for all the support!”
