The late James Caan was married four times in his lifetime. His ex-wives include Dee Jay Mattis, Sheila Ryan, Ingrid Hajek, and Linda Stokes. His four marriages produced five children including actor Scott Caan, best known for Hawaii Five-O.
Back when Scott was very young and James was going through a divorce, James lived at the Playboy Mansion for a short time. In 2003, James revealed, “To get over my divorce, I got a prescription to live at the Playboy Mansion for a while.” Young Scott would visit his dad at the infamous mansion and James once joked that he’d “have Scott bring me girls.”

Scott added, now 45 years old, “No one could say no to a cute little boy.” Scott’s mother is Sheila, who was only married to James for about a year.
James is survived by sons Scott, James, Jacob, and Alexander, as well as daughter Tara. He once joked, “I have four wives and five kids. I apparently don’t know the difference [between sex and love].”
His kids confirmed his death at the age of 82 and shared the statement, “It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Jimmy on the evening of July 6. The family appreciates the outpouring of love and heartfelt condolences and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
