Who Is Shirly Chikli?
Shirly Chikli is a 37-year-old DJ and the wife of The Masked Scammer Gilbert Chikli.
In the documentary, The Masked Scammer, we are introduced to people related to Gilbert, one of them being his wife Shirly. At the end of the documentary, it is mentioned that she is a DJ by profession and has been traveling around the world; her age is around 37 years.
As people say, "love is something we cannot control." We do not know when and how we might fall in love with someone. The same thing happened with Shirly when she fell in love with Gilbert, even though she knew who he was and loved him immensely.
We get to see a glimpse of her love for him in the Netflix documentary, where she shares her time and love for her husband, and despite his reputation, she saw the man she loved, not the masked scammer.
Shirly met her husband in Israel; the pair met outside a store where they bumped into each other. Gilbert had asked her to read what was written in the Hebrew newspaper. The said article was about Gilbert, and Shirly had a hunch that the man in front of her was the infamous Gilbert Chikli.
Their casual meeting eventually turned into a romantic one, and after eleven months of learning about each other, they got married. She felt happy marrying the love of her life, and Gilbert made her feel loved and appreciated and fulfilled all her needs.
Her affection for her husband grew stronger, and she stated that even though she knew about his reputation, she didn't care. She described his action as that of Robin Hood, as he stole from the rich.
She Is The Mother Of Their Two Kids
They raised their family and became parents to two of their children over time. They were living their family life until the day when Gilbert was caught in Ukraine, and this time it was for real and there was no escaping.
Hearing the news of her husband's death, Shirly was devastated; she went to visit him on a regular basis and made sure that he had everything he needed. In the documentary, we see her delivering several food items, drinks, and a refrigerator.
Despite her feelings for her husband, she decided to divorce; she filed for divorce after his conviction. It is known that Gilbert began an online relationship with another woman while he was behind bars. They were together for 15 years before it all came to an end.
Her first name is similar to someone who was close to her husband and with whom he started his infamous scams.
