Actor Zachary Joseph Horwitz, known professionally as Zach Avery, was sentenced up to 20 years in prison.
He is known for his roles in movies The last moment of clarity (2020), Where is hell home? (2018) and Anger (2014).
The 35-year-old was jailed in Los Angeles on Monday (February 14) for running a $650 million Hollywood Ponzi scheme, Fox News reported.
He has also been ordered to refund more than $230 million after defrauding investors into fake Netflix and HBO licensing deals.
Let’s dive into the actor’s personal life. Who is his ex-wife?
Meet Mallory Hagedorn
The actor is married to a woman named Mallory Hagedorn.
However, a report from Guardians announced that she filed for divorce after Zach was first arrested in 2021 and said her husband had:
“Deceiving and manipulating me and everyone around him, and he’s not who I believe he is.”
Mallory apparently deleted all known social media profiles, as did Zach.
Inside their marriage
The pair were reportedly married in October 2014 at the Four Seasons Los Angeles and have been married for seven years.
In an interview with Medium of his career in 2019, Zach said: “My wonderful wife Mallory has been my rock, my sound console and my offending teammate throughout my journey.”
“Today we both have great careers, a real home in Los Angeles and great lives. Without her support and belief in my dreams, I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today,” he continued.
They have a child
Zach and Mallory have one child together, a son named Jaxon, whom they welcomed in 2017.
Talking to Swagger Magazine in 2019, the actor talked about the feelings he felt after becoming a father.
“The reality is that most of our work is really about tapping into empathy, emotions and relationships; he said.
“There are no words to describe the feeling of love, commitment and responsibility that come with having a child, so having these in your arsenal when preparing for a role It’s unbelievable,” he continued.
However, he said that being a father was a “challenge” for an actor because he was away from home a lot.
