Meet Bre Tiesi, Netflix's Newest 'Selling Sunset' Star Who Divorced Johnny Manziel

Bre Tiesi is a new face to the Netflix hit show "Selling Sunset," but football fans may recognize her for her brief marriage to Johnny Manziel.

Have you met Bre Tiesi? With the debut of Season 6 of the mega-popular Netflix series "Selling Sunset," the 32-year-old model-turned-real-estate-agent has stormed onto the screen, winning over viewers with her confident strut, exceptional clientele, and a knack for sparking drama. As the anticipation now builds for Season 7, Sunset fans have found themselves intrigued by the newest member of the show's cast.

As the newest addition to "Selling Sunset," Tiesi is poised to leave her mark on the show and its fans. She's already shown us that she's more than just another pretty face — she's definitely one of the agents we'll want to follow on screen and off. But she's more than a real estate agent in a glitzy reality world. She's a woman juggling motherhood, career, and personal growth while under the heat of the spotlight.

But what's Tiesi actually like, and where did she come from? Does her name sound familiar? It might — or you might be surprised to learn that she's the ex-wife of Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel and part of the footballer's very messy divorce. What else should you know about Tiesi if you plan on diving into more of the Netflix reality show?

Let's dive in and get acquainted.

Bre Tiesi: From the Runway to the Real Estate Market

One glance at Tiesi and it's clear she has a history in the modeling world. Born in Calabasas, California, she was introduced to modeling at 16 and quickly rose through the ranks, becoming the face of Rockstar Energy for two years.

"I literally fell into modeling," she told E! News. "I had never in a million years even considered or thought about it."

But she didn't stop there. She decided to make the move from modeling to real estate after giving it some heavy consideration.

"I just wanted to branch out and really build my portfolio and I was like, 'I want to be the plug.'," she continued. "So I basically became the plug for everything, whether you wanted to get a house rental or you wanted to get a jet, you needed a car service, needed security, whatever you need, I made sure that I could supply that."

Turning Down the Spotlight, Until Now

It might come as a surprise that Tiesi was actually offered a place on the "Selling Sunset" roster not once, but multiple times.

She declined the chance to become a cast member during the show's second season, and once again a few years later. Her decision to join the team for the sixth and seventh seasons came only after she entered a new chapter in her life. As she put it in an interview with E! News, "I wasn't really ready. And then I decided after everything was out and I was in a different place in life that I was officially ready."

Balancing Motherhood and Stardom

One key aspect of that "different place in life" is Bre's newfound role as a mother. In June 2022, she welcomed a baby named Legendary Love Cannon, her first child with partner and star Nick Cannon.

She's kept fans in the loop through a dedicated Instagram account for Legend, showcasing precious family moments, holiday-themed photoshoots, and a glimpse into their lavish lifestyle. Her relationship with Cannon has led to several moments on "Selling Sunset" that had her tangling with the other women, especially given her views on the "Wild 'n Out" host and his several other children with other birth mothers.

Before her relationship with Cannon, Tiesi was married to former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel. Their whirlwind romance began in 2016, culminating in a courthouse wedding in 2018. However, their marriage was short-lived, and they parted ways in 2019 amid accusations of infidelity. Tiesi claimed that Manziel had cheated, stating that "vows were broken" in a deleted social media post.

"u been married? U been betrayed I don't do betrayal for a person I was devoted to period. Vows were broken f— money and f— u and every other loser on here," she wrote at the time.

Manziel had responded in a statement to TMZ Sports about the allegations.

"This is all very, very personal and very sad. I appreciate everyone who has been so supportive of both of us and I would just ask that everyone respect our privacy at this difficult time. My hope is to put my head down and be allowed to focus on work and what is required of me on the football field."

In the wake of the divorce, Tiesi originally sought spousal support but later claimed that was an error on her lawyer's end.

Her attorney, Arther H. Barens, sent a statement to TMZ confirming the mistake.

She Stands Up for What Matters

Family is at the heart of everything Tiesi does, a fact she makes abundantly clear on "Selling Sunset." Her protective nature extends not only to her loved ones but also to her lifestyle choices, a sentiment she expressed in her E! News interview.

"I am not your typical conventional type of person, and I live it loud and proud. I don't really care how anyone feels about it, but I definitely have some spice. And when you take it too far, I'm the first one to go a little too far with you."

A Passion for Fitness and Giving

Elevate With Bre


Tiesi's interests extend beyond just modeling and real estate. In partnership with OFTV, she launched Elevate with Bre, a series of empowering workout videos aimed at motivating and inspiring women.

Amid her many commitments, Tiesi still finds time to dedicate herself to volunteer work. From attending the Westside Community Dinner and Celebration to supporting PETA, her commitment to community service speaks volumes about her values. Between her real estate commitments, life as a mom, and everything else she has going on, it's clear that Tiesi is one busy woman.

Considering her ex-husband Johnny Manziel is out of the NFL and she's selling million-dollar mansions on Netflix's hottest show right now, Bre Tiesi is doing just fine after her divorce.
