Nielsen has four children from previous marriages.
Her most recent love affair, with U.S. rapper Flavor Flav, provided the material for the VH1 series "The Surreal Life" as well as a spin-off featuring the oddly matched couple. At the end of the series, Nielsen chooses Dessi over Flav.
Nielsen is best known for her roles in several action movies of the 1980s, including "Rocky IV" and "Beverly Hills Cop II."
