Multimillionaire James Khuri's son, Brendan, 17, pleaded guilty on Friday, April 23, in the fatal crash that took the life of 32-year-old Monique Munoz. Brendan collided his Lamborghini SUV with Munoz's car in Los Angeles, California
The 17-year-old son of multimillionaire James Khuri pleaded guilty on Friday, April 23, in a fatal crash that took the life of Monique Munoz, 32. Now, people want to know more about the millionaire's personal life and his relations with his ex-wife and the teen's mother Christine Khuri-Roderick.
Brendan Khuri collided his Lamborghini SUV with Munoz's car at the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Overland Avenue, Los Angeles, California. The crash was so bad that Munoz's vehicle was nearly split in half, said LAPD Capt. Brian Wendling. The incident followed a pattern of reckless driving by Brendan. Prosecutors said he had been stopped twice for speeding before, in one instance going 72 miles an hour on city streets. His provisional driver’s license had been suspended. Reports suggest that Brendan was given the vehicle for his 17th birthday in June by his father, despite opposition from the boy's mother Christine Khuri-Roderick, 53, who divorced James in 2008.
Who is Christine Khuri?
Christine Khuri, 53, is Brendan's mother and James Khuri's ex-wife, she divorced James back in 2008 when Brendan was around 5 years old. She now goes by the name Christine Khuri-Roderick. Christine has spent her entire professional life developing fitness, health and wellness programs for clients from New York to Los Angeles. Her background as a personal trainer, certified nutritionist and spin instructor as well as her enthusiasm for beauty, health and fitness include a variety of certifications in the fitness community. She is trained in yoga, personal training and spinning. She started working out when she was 22 and never stopped.
She currently represents Transformation protein which is affiliated with world-renowned trainer Gunnar Peterson and has a long list of personal clientele of some of LA's top-notch people. Her Youtube channel has many workout and health-related videos, helping people to get into shape. The Youtube channel was created on July 17, 2015, and has more than 430,000 total views.
Christine lives in her Beverly Hills mansion with her now arrested son, Brendan, and their two pets. In an interview with Prime Women, she said she’d been exposed to fitness and wellness by her mother. “My mom did yoga and meditation and all that weird ’70s stuff. She took me to my first aerobics class — it was Jazzercise! And she wouldn’t let me have sugar.”
Christine's aim now is to create a wellness-retreat business, which she says will allow her to have an even greater impact on clients. “I am passionate about helping people change their lives and be healthier,” Christine said. “There is an experience you can have on a retreat that you cannot have otherwise. When you have access to people in a retreat environment, you can really impact them.” Christine added that one thing she’s found empowering as she has grown older is that people really want to hear her advice. “People don’t realize how old I am,” she says, “but when they find out, they listen to everything I say.” Another joy of aging for the trainer, she said, is, “You get really clear on the things that you want — like really clear. I’ve done so many things I didn’t want to do, that I’ve finally figured out what’s really important to me.”
