Born on April 28, 1942. American businesswoman socialite and philanthropist Elaine Wynn has an estimated net worth of $1.7 billion as of 2015, according to Forbes. She attended and earned her Bachelor of Arts from Washington University and is widely recognized as the co-founder of Wynn Resorts along with her former husband Steve, yet she was later removed from the company’s Board of Directors in spite of being re-nominated for the same role at one time. Wynn also cannot sell part of her 9% share in Wynn Resorts without Steve’s approval thanks to the divorce settlement, which results in her having sued him for the right to sell her stake since 2012. She was ranked #12 on the 2015 America’s Self-Made Women as well as #261 on the 2014 Forbes 400 list. Elaine Wynn has two children, Kevyn Wynn and Gillian Wynn.
