Kristen Messner was 51 years old as of June 2021. Meanwhile, Lindsey was 71 years old at the same time. Her birthday was mentioned to be on February 28, making her of the Pisces zodiac.
As a Pisces, Kristen talked about herself having the most connection with a “trait of a dreamer.” She added,
“My dreams, small or grand, are an important part of what makes me – Me. These dreams drive me forward and I feel so lucky that I am able to make many of them a reality.”
Kristen Messner Family
Kristen Messner wasn’t particularly fond of talking about her family. However, there was one person she couldn’t stop sharing about, her mom. According to Kristen, her mother “never met a car she didn’t speed in, a party she didn’t enjoy, or a brownie she didn’t love”. She was the best mom anyone could ask for, and Kristen is “glad to have inherited some of her finest traits”.
Digging around a little, we found out that Kristen has a sibling who had a 14-year-old son (as of 2021). Reportedly, on one of Kristen’s birthdays, her nephew gave her a paper-mâché dog that was “black and white with a red collar and a blue ribbon on his breast that read MOST STYLISH”.
Trivia: Kristen is an animal lover; especially horses. She shared that she grew up around horses, and in time, she started participating in shows and riding seriously.
Kristen Messner stands tall at a height of under 5 feet 4 inches (162 cm).
Just in case you are curious, Kristen is over 5 inches (12 cm) shorter than her husband Lindsey who is 5 feet 9 inches (177 cm).

As of June 2021, Kristen garnered 7.5K followers over her Instagram @kbchrush, and 1K followers over her self-titled Facebook page.

Kristen Messner Net Worth
Kristen Messner’s net worth was over $ 50 million by 2021. Likewise, her husband Lindsey flaunted a whopping net worth of $160 million then.
But unlike Lindsey, Kristen didn’t make her fortune associated with the music industry. Rather she is an interior designer who made some pretty big real estate deals. Back in 2018, Kristen sold the Brentwood home she and Lindsey bought for $6.6 million (in 2004), at $19 million after remodeling it. Originally, the asking price for the home was $29.5 million.
Her admirers love the way Kristen’s aesthetic put a subversive spin on otherwise traditional design elements. Inspired by her favorite style eras from the 30s, 40s, and 70s, Kristen shared that her definition of style was “definitely personal”. She added, “I love a beautiful space with a sense of collected elegance, but it has to have livability and humor. Also edgy, not overtly feminine.”
As for where does she turn for her inspiration, she shared, “it sounds lame – my own design library and Pinterest.”
In 2021, Kristen was working as the CEO of her eponymous showroom in Los Angeles’ La Cienega Design Quarter. Reportedly, she opened the company back in 2010 influenced by Albert Hadley’s idea of chic suitability.
Over the years, Kristen’s works have been featured in ELLE DECOR, C Magazine, and Traditional Home, among other publications. In 2014, she was also named to ELLE DECOR’s exclusive A-List.
Kristen someday hopes to design a boutique hotel in New York City, a Paris apartment, or a Villa in Italy.
Apart from designing, Kristen also was interested in penning down her thoughts. Go check her vlogs at “kristenbuckingham.com”.
Lindsey Buckingham And Kristen Messner: Wedding, Kids
Kristen Messner first met Lindsey Buckingham back in 1996, while working as a photographer shooting for one of Lindsey’s solo albums, Town and Country. And after four years, the duo held their wedding, and eventually went on to share three kids — William Gregory (born 1998), Leelee, (born 2000), and Stella (born 2004).
Her son, William was once featured over her IG with “his beautiful girlfriend” in March 2019. Also, her daughters seemed to be in a relationship judging by their IG’s @leelee_buck, and @stellabellacandy with 3K and 2K followers as of May 2021.
Over an interview, Lindsey once shared that he waited a long time to find a wife due to his rock star lifestyle.
After 21 years of marriage, Kristen filed for divorce in Los Angeles in 2021. June that year, TMZ first reported the news.
Kristen Messner On Stevie Nicks
Kristen Messner was by Lindsey’s side when he was kicked out of Fleetwood Mac in 2018. Although Kristen didn’t directly press it on Stevie Nicks, she tagged the whole band to “really suck.”
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Kristen expressed her surprise at how did Lindsey get replaced by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell and Crowded House singer Neil Finn. She shared, “I was just sad… I was thinking, ‘How did they get here?’”
Also, she mentioned that the band members including Mick Fleetwood, Christine, John McVie, and Stevie Nicks, were “a family of sorts”; and that her three kids “called them aunts and uncles.”
Later, Kristen even called out Fleetwood Mac founding member Mick Fleetwood through a tweet, writing that while he was busy “telling the world how ‘unhappy’ the band was,” no one told Lindsey.
As of 2021, Lindsey remained silent on the matter. Also, there were no interviews online of him speaking on Stevie Nicks or his wife.
For those of you won don’t know Lindsey’s story with Stevie, the pair met long before they joined Fleetwood Mac. They attended the same high school and later went on to join the band Fritz in 1967; the same time around they began their romantic relationship.
Since then, the duo’s tempestuous relationship stayed in the spotlight until 1994 when the pair decided to split. After the breakup, the stars took a long time to mend their relationship as a friend, and although they never fully healed, Stevie wrote a letter to Lindsey in 2019 after he suffered a heart attack.
She said it read: “You better take care of yourself. You better take it easy and you better do everything they tell you and get your voice back and feel the grace that you have made it through this.”
