David Michael Navarro (aka Dave Navarro) was born on June 7, 1967, in Santa Monica, California. His paternal grandparents were Mexican immigrants. He attended Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, California, where he was a member of the marching band, ‘Jane’s Addiction’. His parents divorced when he was seven years old, and he stayed with his mother in Bel Air. He started playing the piano as a child, but soon switched to playing the guitar after his father bought him one.
David has been married thrice. His first marriage was to the celebrity makeup artist Tania Goddard-Saylor in 1990, which ended in divorce in 1992. In 1994, not long after the first divorce, he wed Rhian Gittins. Their romance ended in just one month, and the couple desired an annulment. In 2003, Dave married again to Carmen Electra, the Baywatch breakout star. But even this marriage didn’t last very long and ended in their divorce in 2007. As of June 2022, David is engaged to Vanessa DuBasso, a model and actress.
David’s mother was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, John Riccardi, in March 1983. Riccardi was arrested in 1991, thanks to a viewer tip after Riccardi was featured on the television series America’s Most Wanted. David stated that he was supposed to visit and stay with his mother on the night of her murder but at the last minute went to stay with his father. In 2015, he released the documentary Mourning Son, which details his mother’s murder and his spiral into drug addiction, as well as the pain he has had to overcome in the years since her death.
