What Is Jessica Hahn’s Net Worth?
Jessica Hahn is an American former model and actress who has a net worth of $4 million. Hahn is best known for being in the center of a sex scandal involving televangelist Jim Bakker while she was employed as a church secretary.
Jessica posed for “Playboy” magazine in the late ’80s, and she appeared on television shows such as “Married… with Children” (1991), “Dream On” (1992), and “Unhappily Ever After” (1995).
Jessica Hahn was born on July 7, 1959, in Massapequa, New York. Her mother, Jessica Moylan, was a homemaker, and her stepfather, Edward Moylan, was a police officer with the NYPD. Hahn grew up with two older siblings and a half-brother, and she attended Massapequa High School, graduating in 1977. Sadly, in 1989, Jessica’s mother died of anorexia.
Jim Bakker Scandal
Hahn first became known to the public in March 1987 after Jim Bakker announced that he was leaving his position as head of the Christian TV network PTL and the theme park/water park/residential complex Heritage USA. This occurred after the “Charlotte Observer” started investing PTL’s finances and discovered a $279,000 payment to Jessica. Hahn alleged that she was drugged by preacher John Wesley Fletcher and raped by both Bakker and Fletcher in December 1980 when she was 21 years old.
In his 1997 book, “I Was Wrong,” Bakker claimed that he didn’t rape Jessica and that the encounter was consensual. During a “Larry King Live” interview, Hahn was asked why she didn’t report Bakker, and she replied, “Because my whole life was the church…he had his own zip code. He had his own post office box. This man had an empire.” She also revealed that she returned the hush money to the PTL partners because people had lost their jobs (PTL filed for bankruptcy in June 1987) and she felt sorry for them. Bakker was sentenced to 45 years in prison on counts of mail fraud, wire fraud, and conspiracy, but he served less than five years and was released in 1994.
