The 80-year-old sold a portion of his compound, including his Palisades guesthouse, for $3.3 million in 2013. It is believed that Al owned another house in the Palisades neighborhood, which he sold in 2010.

Al Pacino: Wife & Children
Pacino has never married, and for this reason, has no wife. But he has fathered three children from his previous relationships.
The 80-year-old became a father for the first time when his ex-partner Jan Tarrant, an acting coach, gave birth to their daughter, Julie Marie Pacino, on October 16, 1989.
Al has two children, twins, son Anton James and daughter Olivia Rose, born on January 25, 2001, from his relationship with actress Beverly D’Angelo. Both dated from 1996 until 2003.

Pacino split from his long-time girlfriend Lucila Solá, an Argentinian actress, in 2018. They had briefly ended their relationship in 2015 but had eventually got back together.
Following his separation from Lucila, Al began dating Israeli actress Meital Dohan after both met at a Hollywood afterparty. They separated in February 2020, with Dohan citing their 36-year age gap as the reason for the split.
“It’s hard to be with a man so old, even Al Pacino. The age gap is difficult, yes. I tried to deny it, but now he is already an elderly man, to be honest,” she told Israel’s LaIsha magazine.
