Who is Brian Quinn’s Rumored Girlfriend?
Many fans loved to know the relationship status of Brian Quinn. However, this guy has a very complicated relationship status.
He never disclosed any relationship status to the public, even during his time on Impractical Jokers.
According to Looper, Q once confessed that his girlfriend is related to an A-list celebrity and that his girlfriend went to prison due to serious drug charges.
National Enquirer reported that the mystery woman Q is dating is the half-sister of King of Queens TV star Leah Remini, and her name is Elizabeth Remini.
The rumored girlfriend, Elizabeth, was sent to New Hanover County Jail after being charged with drug trafficking and five felony counts of cocaine possession. She was released on $50,000 bail after three days.
People have speculated that he is gay and dating a boyfriend, especially because he shared on social media that he would tie the knot when gay marriage is legalized in New York City. In May 2017, he tweeted;
“I will not marry until gay marriage is legal in New York City. Hard Stance on that.”
Many are curious about his tweet, and some speculated that he is gay. But Q didn’t admit nor deny this. Maybe he’s just a supporter of gay marriage.
Brian Quinn never imagined that he would be a father at such a young age.
It all started when his then-girlfriend Daniella Cook brought his daughter Katie Quinn to him when she was just one year old.
Today, Katie is all grown up, and Brian has full custody of her.
According to Wattpad, it only took seeing his beautiful daughter for the first time for Brian to fall head-over-heels in love with her.
However, Daniella returned after a few years and filed for child custody. Brian doesn’t want to let go of Katie and be with the wrong hands.
Even though Brian tried to keep Katie away from the media, he wanted her daughter to live a normal life.
Brian Quinn’s Net Worth
Q earns money from various sources, with a reported net worth of $5 million. It is said that each of the Impractical Jokers makes $50,000 per episode in salary.
Furthermore, the Jokers often go on tour and host cruises.
One of his fans asked how much money these guys make. He responded by saying that you should think about what money you believe people on TV get paid and then cut that in half. After taxes and fees, there’s not much left.
During his time in Impractical Jokers, Q donated $50,000 to the New York City Fire Department.
