AMERICAN Pickers star Mike Wolfe is letting his estranged wife and their daughter live in the family's stunning $2million Tennessee estate amid their divorce, The Sun can exclusively reveal.
The reality star's ex Jodi filed for divorce in November 2020 after eight years of marriage.
Mike and Jodi share 9-year-old daughter Charlie Faeth Wolfe.
The Sun can reveal the mother and daughter reside in this gorgeous home in Franklin, where celebrities including Miley Cyrus and Justin Timberlake also own properties.
The couple are believed to have purchased the abode in 2012, the year they tied the knot, for $849,000- and it’s now worth more than double that amount.
Spring-fed creeks runs through the middle of the property, according to online records, and it's described as the ideal location for a dream home.
The couple gave Country Living a tour of their luxury abode back in 2016 – showing off their renovation and how picker Mike had turned trash into treasure when it came to interior design.
He bought an old gas pump for $800 on a trip to Virginia which had been locked in a semi trailer for more than 20 years, he told the outlet. It now stands proudly outside their home.
Mike, 57, has brought in a light fixture from an old barn in Ohio for the living room, along with a locker from a factory to hang jackets in a cloakroom area.
Quirky chandeliers, a 1915 Excelsior motorcycle, a wooden dining table and huge matching cabinet filled with 1920s oilcans and trophies are also pictured.
A vintage telephone is attached to the wall next to one cosy nook in the home, while he has also collected vintage kids' cowboy boots for their daughter.
"Most of the bathroom is new, so I brought in a vintage Stetson cowboy hat ad and displayed Jodi's hats on antique millinery stands to incorporate found objects," he told the outlet.
"Just one layer of vintage accessories is all it takes to give a new room old soul.
"In my office, each shelf has a theme: bikes, motorcycles, aviation, and cars. It's easy to go overboard, though, so I like to stick to just one spot."
Fans were sad to learn Mike and Jodi, 50, quietly separated after more than a decade together.
Divorce documents seen by The Sun show Jodi filed in November, citing "irreconcilable differences," and listing their date of separation as June 2020.
Papers also show Jodi had been married once before as it was previously reported she has an adult son named Kyle.
The Sun can exclusively reveal the couple have signed a Collaborative Divorce Participation Agreement, known as a PA.
The key element of the agreement is that both parties agree that they will not ask a court to decide a disputed issue, meaning it could be a hassle-free divorce.
The documents show all hopes of reconciliation had been "exhausted" and Jodi and their daughter are residing in their huge Tennessee home.
Jodi is getting her life back on track after a difficult few years.
In 2013, she developed stage 2 Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
The mother of one explained her diagnosis: "Believe it or not even vegan, exercising, juicing mamas get cancer.
"I was the last one to expect it. Life was everything I could possibly dream of then bam"
Meanwhile, her ex Mike is now listed at a smaller residence not far from the family home and is dating tattooed model Leticia Cline, 42.
The couple went public with their romance earlier this month in exclusive photos obtained by The Sun.
They enjoyed a day of running errands and attending a local parade in Mike's hometown of Le Claire, Iowa.
A day later, they were spotted at the Tugfest Tug-Of-War festival in Iowa.
In video obtained by The Sun, Mike and Leticia seemed to enjoy the festivities, as cars decorated with signs, flags, streamers and more drove by.
The Beauty and the Geek contestant has already met the American Pickers star’s mother, as his mom Rita joined them for the day out.
The happy trio later enjoyed the tug-of-war competition across the Mississippi River between Le Claire and the town of Port Byron, Illinois from a VIP tent.
Apparently, the new lovers have been friends for several years, as the model shared a photo alongside her new man in 2018.
Leticia has been known for her appearances on Beauty and The Geek, her interview role for TNA Wrestling, and her racy photoshoots.
She shocked the public when she once went on Howard Stern's radio show and "rode his Sybian vibrator in the nude," TMZ recalled.
