Roxy Jacenko’s divorced parents have offloaded their property portfolio, a decade after their marriage fell apart. 

As reported by The Sydney Morning Herald, the Sydney PR guru’s mother Doreen Davis and father Nick Jacenko have sold a collection of investment properties held in their names for a staggering $78million.   

It is believed the Jacenko estate included a cluster of commercial properties in Sydney’s Beaconsfield, Alexandria and Ultimo, each worth around $15 to $20 million.

Doreen and Nick built a lucrative empire together in the Australian rag trade during their ill-fated 38-year marriage. 

Shortly after marrying, the couple launched Capital Clothing, a thriving fashion business that would generate upwards of $13 million a year.  

Roxy’s parents continued to grow their family wealth by branching out into real estate.

However, it all came crashing down in 2011 when Doreen and Nick split in acrimonious circumstances.  

While Roxy maintains a close relationship with her mother, she’s made no secret of the fact she’s been estranged from her father since the divorce. 

In February 2018, the Sweaty Betty PR founder told Daily Mail Australia she had no intention of reconciling with Nick.

‘How he has treated my mother after 30 years of her dedication to our family and their business endeavours coupled with the fact he hasn’t even attempted to meet my son, Hunter, or enquire when I got cancer,’ Roxy said at the time, explaining her reasons for no longer speaking to her father.

Roxy was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2016, just weeks after her husband, former investment banker Oliver Curtis was jailed for insider trading. 

In 2019, the publicist indicated that their relationship was still strained when asked about reports Nick had ‘secretly wed’ former fashion mogul Lisa Ho.

‘My invite must have been lost in the mail,’ she told Daily Mail Australia via email, adding that she did not attend the ceremony.

Nick has previously been married twice – first to Sandra O’Keefe and then to Doreen.

He reportedly wed Lisa in October 2019 in a secret ceremony.
