He was married for three years to Gladys Portugues who was a bodybuilder. With Gladys he had two kids: Kristopher (born 1988) and Bianca. After an affair with Darcy LaPier in 1992, he got married to her in February 1994.
During filming in Thailand that year, he had an affair during Street Fighter production.
LaPier, a woman who was pregnant with Mr Van Varenberg at the time of the incident, didn’t discover this until Van Damme had publicly admitted it in 2012.
Van Damme married Portugues, a bodybuilder, after leaving LaPier. The couple later divorced.
Portuguese had filed for a divorce from Van Damme early 2015 citing irreconcilable differences. In May 2015, however they appeared to be reconciled and had the divorce cancelled.
