Divorces are never pretty. But for The Rock and his ex-wife Dany Garcia, it’s a very different story. Dwayne Johnson, mostly known as the WWE character The Rock, divorced Dany Garcia back in 2007. But, years on now, they still remain the best of friends. But more than that, the two basically run a company together. Now that’s something ordinary couples do not expect when they get divorced.

The couple were reported saying that they would continue their business together back in 2007 when they had divorced. Johnson and Garcia, who have a 13-year-old daughter, divorced after ten years of marriage.

"We will continue to advance and manage our business interests, our philanthropic efforts and most importantly the raising of our child together, as a loving team," the pair told People magazine at the time. “We’ve been fortunate enough to spend the last 17 years together as a couple and look forward to spending the rest our lives together as best friends and business partners.” 

Well, that turned out right! Keeping their word, the two founded 7 Bucks in 2012. Just for trivia, 7 Bucks is the amount of money Johnson had before entering WWE or as they say, becoming the Rock!!! Having enjoyed tremendous success in the ring, Dwayne Johnson is also doing well in Hollywood with with several TV series on the way. Perhaps most notably, the pair are executive-producing an HBO show with Mark Wahlberg called Ballers, in which Johnson will play an athlete working to become an agent. The news was recently shared on Twitter by both individuals.

Dany Garcia married ex husband  Dwayne Johnson in 1997 after seven years of dating. Together they have a daughter Simone Alexandra who has now reached the age of 13. They met at the University of Miami while Garcia was 23 years. They married in 1997 only to get divorced in 2008. Dany’s parents objected to their daughter dating Johnson just because it was a mixed relationship. There was no anger or mud-slinging during their divorce and the relationship ended amicably. Thereafter, Garcia reclaimed her maiden name. Garcia and Johnson have split custody of their daughter with Dwayne paying child support of over $22,000 per month. Together they will provide the child with $5,000 towards a trust fund for health care, education and other financial requirements.

Enough about the Rock, Dany Garcia has also carved a fine name for herself. Although not into heroic movies like his ex-husband, she has does have some tremendous workloads in her plate. The first-generation Cuban-American founded The Garcia Companies, a talent and media management company. But more than that, she competes as a professional body builder; and, she runs The Beacon Experience, a foundation that provides at-risk children with tutoring and scholarships for college. 

The entrepreneur/ bodybuilder/ mom also has some decent fans with around 17.6 K followers on Instagram. She is usually seen posting pics from her workout. On March 29, 2014, she married Dave Rienzi in Orlando. And if there were any doubts as to whether Johnson was affected by the marriage, all we can say is that her new husband has been her ex-husband’s trainer for three years now. Looking at this ex-couple, there’s certainly a happily ever after divorce.
