Who is Thibeault 'Christian' Stracke? Sutton Stracke didn't know how rich she was until her divorce

Even before being promoted to the position of a housewife, 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Sutton Stracke managed to grab everybody's attention. Her obsession with high-end couture and the ability to stir drama wherever she set foot, ensured that she didn't go unnoticed. However, she was cast as 'friend of housewives' on her debut season because her former husband Thibeault 'Christian' Stracke didn't want their children and him to be filmed on the show.

Now that she has finally been promoted as the housewife on Season 11 of 'RHOBH', fans are getting a lot more insight into the 49-year-old's lavish life. On nearly every episode of 'RHOBH' Sutton manages to show off just how wealthy she really is. From wearing $2000 bedroom slippers to hosting a $35,000 party for eight guests, Sutton isn't holding back when it comes to flaunting her wealth. This left fans wondering where exactly the new housewife is getting all her money from. As usual Lisa Rinna gave us the answer last season when she introduced Sutton to the group.

Lisa declared to the world just how rich Sutton really is by pointing out how the new cast member received custom tiaras from Dolce & Gabanna every year on her birthday. Lisa said, "What does it say about Sutton that Dolce & Gabbana make a one of a kind piece for her? It says that she’s rich, honey! She’s-a-rich!” “And she buys couture,” Lisa continued. “And none of these other ho’s do.” Lisa also revealed where all the money was coming from, by pointing at her co-star's ex-husband. "Sutton’s ex-husband’s into hedge funds, who knows, like money stuff. When they divorced Sutton had no idea she’d be set for life. Because there are homes, private jets and I think there’s a baseball team. Or two. Or more. I don’t know. She has a lot of fucking money," the housewife explained.

Later, in the season Garcelle Beauvais too asked Sutton directly where she got her money from. Being the typical southern-belle, Sutton found it extremely uncomfortable to discuss the topic of money with others. However, she did tell her co-star that she was married to a man who "did well" for himself. So, now that Sutton too confirmed that she was getting all her money from her former husband, fans began getting curious about Christian Stracke's job and money.

A fan tweeted, "What the F!#$ does Sutton do for a living??? What did her ex husband do!?? I need to know!!! #RHOBH." Another fan wrote, "I need to Google Sutton and her ex-husband to find out where their money comes from. #RHOBH."

"What exactly does Sutton’s ex-husband do? #RHOBH," wondered a fan.

Who is Sutton Stracke's ex-husband Thibeault 'Christian' Stracke?

Sutton and Christian knew each other since childhood. On an episode of 'RHOBH', the reality star shared that she knew her former husband since she was 13-years-old. The couple was married from 2000 to 2016. The couple shares three children together: 17-year-old daughter Porter and two sons, 15-year-old Philip and 12-year-old James.  According to Heavy, the couple met at a Fine Arts High School in Augusta. His mother, Claire Stracke, taught Spanish at the school. 

After graduating from the University of Chicago, Christian volunteered in the Peace Corps from 1992 to 1994, teaching techniques for tree planting and anti-erosion in Oumm El Khezz, Mauritania, on the outskirts of the Sahara Desert, reported the outlet. There isn't much information available in public about Christian as he appears to be a very private person with no social media accounts. However, his work-related information is available online. Christian works at the investment management company PIMCO. As the global head of credit research, he is in charge of real estate and corporate investments. He has 23 years of investment experience. 


What is Christian Stracke's net worth?

Christian's net worth isn't available on public records, but Distractify has made an estimation of his possible net worth. The outlet pointed out that a senior portfolio manager at the firm the company he works at earns an average of $236,076 per year, while an operations manager earns an average of $213,058. So, the outlet estimates that Christian must be earning in six figures annually. 

During an appearance on 'Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen', Sutton revealed that she didn't know just how rich she really was until her divorce proceedings began. She said, "It's true because he was in charge of the finances, I didn't know everything. So when you do the full disclosure and get everything, I was like, 'What?" It's actually two minor league baseball teams. I knew we had a timber company. But I didn't know all. There was like 10 things on there. I was like, 'Wow, I'm rich'."

'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Season 11 airs every Wednesday at 8/7c on Bravo.
