Gladys Portugues is an actress and former body builder, who twice married the Belgian actor.

Their first marriage lasted from 1987 until 1992. The couple split up as Jean-Claude Van Damme became more and more famous in Hollywood.

Two years later Jean-Claude Van Damme married Darcy LaPier by who he has a son, Nicolas.

This marriage too ended in divorce and Jean-Claude Van Damme returned to Gladys Portugues. It was burgomaster Leopold Lippens, who presided over their wedding ceremony in the Belgian jet set resort of Knokke in 1999.

For Jean-Claude Van Damme this is his 5th divorce as he was briefly married twice before he met Gladys Portugues.
