For the past 17 years Yasmine has been married to strip club owner Paul Cerrito, who she reportedly met in a Malibu rehab centre after voluntarily checking herself in for cocaine addiction.
Yasmine, who hasn’t acted since 2003, has struggled with addiction over the years and relapsed after leaving the clinic. She was arrested in 2001 when police found cocaine in her car following a crash.
