The Untold Truth Of The MyPillow Guy's Ex-Wife

People could not believe their eyes when MyPillow founder Mike Lindell, 58, showed up at the White House coronavirus press briefing on Monday, March 30. During his speech at the Rose Garden, the businessman announced that his company is hoping to increase its production of cotton face masks from 10,000 to 50,000 per day to help the United States' fight against the coronavirus

Despite his helpful initiative, Lindell got plenty of hate from journalists and outspoken social media users, according to Fox News. Now, as the hashtag #MyPillowGuy continues to gain traction on Twitter, fans want to know more about the famous infomercial CEO. So here it is!

Lindell, an American inventor, has had quite a dramatic life outside of his MyPillow bubble. In 2013, he married his girlfriend of two years, Dallas Yocum — only to divorce her weeks later. As he told The Star Tribune that year, the couple was driving together in July, just one month after their nuptials, when Yocum dropped a bombshell. 

"She said Just leave me alone or you're going to hear something you don't want to hear," Lindell recalled. "And of course, I said 'What do you mean?' and she looked at me while I was driving and said I don't love you. I never loved you. You're boring. We don't have anything in common and you've ruined the last two years of my life." Yikes! That's harsh, huh?

Mike Lindell's failed marriage

Mike Lindell filed for divorce days after Dallas Yocum's diss, and she left the state with her brother. When Lindell looked back at their photos together, he noticed his wife never looked happy. That's when he realized it may have been all about money for her. "I get stronger every day," Lindell told The Star Tribune in August 2013. "I have not [gotten] angry. There was a sadness of how somebody could do something like that. God got me through it. A lot of prayer. You wake up one day and go 'What?'... I've never been this blindsided."

Though Yocum allegedly ran off with her wedding ring, expensive jewelry, and money she got from her position as MyPillow's director of customer service, Lindell eventually got the closure he needed when friends of hers told him it had been a scam the entire time. Luckily for him, Yocum signed a prenup.

As he attempted to heal from his breakup, Lindell told the outlet that he was doing his best to finish his autobiography, but it would need a different ending. The book was supposed to actually end on the former couple's wedding day, June 8. "Now that book is going to end with her telling me I'm boring and then there's book two, which I'm living now. We don't know how that's going to turn out," Lindell joked to the Tribune.

The MyPillow guy's rocky love life

Mike Lindell's disastrous love life didn't start with his failed marriage to Dallas Yocum. The MyPillow guy — who was called "boring" by his runaway bride, and who's worth a whopping $330 million thanks to his pillow company — apparently also had a tumultuous fallout from his first wife, Каrеn Dісkеу.

Dickey and the Mankato, Minn. native were married for about 20 years before they called it quits, due to Lindell's addiction to cocaine, crack cocaine, and alcohol. The former couple had four kids together, according to Bloomberg.

The now-successful CEO succumbed to his habits for a big part of his life, and even lost his family home because of them. But in Јаnuаrу 2009, he vowed to get sober, and he's been clean since. Lindell revealed all the details about his past drug use in a candid 2017 interview with CNBC. He credits his faith for helping him overcome addiction, saying, "I look back now, and I go, 'The only way that we were able to do that was divine intervention.'"

Mike Lindell's new girlfriend transformed his faith

After experiencing some lows in his personal life, Mike Lindell met his current girlfriend, Kendra Reeves (pictured left), in 2014, according to the mogul's interview with The Salvation Army's Florida division. In addition to bringing happiness back into his life, Lindell said that Reeves also restored his religious faith. "I would say, 'Well, I believe in God.' But it was different with her," Lindell explained. "I was watching her, and I said, 'Wow, I want what she has.' I didn't have that relationship with Jesus that she did."

The Minnesota native's journey intensified when, in 2017, he attended a "spiritual retreat" to explore his feelings. "I went in there with the hope I would get what Kendra had, this relationship with Jesus," he shared. "I totally surrendered. It was the most amazing thing for me." 

Lindell added, "Since that time, I can now talk about Jesus Christ in the same way I used to talk about a pillow. I talk about it with the same passion."

We're not sure if the lovebirds are together as of this writing, but Lindell did post a photo with Reeves at the White House's 2019 Christmas party. All's well that ends well, we suppose!
