Events of GTA IV
At the very beginning of the game, she is married (her fourth marriage) to Kirk Simplex for a mere twenty minutes. Their marriage ceremony cost $50 million, featured her thirteen foreign children in heritage costumes, and A-Z List magazine paying $15 million for exclusive coverage.
After her failed marriage, Muldoon switched religions three times in one week (from Buddhism to Kabbalah to Epsilon). She has fourteen adopted children from various countries, the most recent is a baby from Sub-Saharan Africa which she returned due to its constant crying; Another child, "Wave", who had grown to be eight years old and was given a faux-hawk, wasn't seen for some time and was probably sent home as well.
Events of GTA V
Sometime after the events of GTA IV, she took up a fake southern accent, right-wing views and transitioned from pop to country music. In 2013, Muldoon attempted suicide by ingesting a bottle of vodka with a fistful of pills, after a recent breakup and struggles in her career (she tries to pass it off as an accident). A few months after the incident, she appears on the radio show Bless Your Heart with Bobby June. She tells Bobby June that her adopted children still number at thirteen, who "each have their own room and their own name!". She debuts a song from her new album is I Like Things Just the Way They Are. During the mission Paparazzo, Beverly Felton mentions that there are rumors of Samantha buying an North Korean baby through the black market.
LCPD Database record
- In Grand Theft Auto V, she's one of the honored celebrities on the Vinewood Boulevard sidewalk.
- In the mission Friend Request, one of the readlines that appears during Jay Norris' speech, says that Samantha keeps her adopted children in a separated house, because they are "too loud".
GTA IV era Muldoon was mostly based on Angelina Jolie and Madonna, while her child Wave was likely based on Jolie's adopted son Maddox. Her extravagant wedding was based on Lakshmi Mittal's daughter's wedding, and a strikingly similar supermodel-banker match, Aleksandra and Andrey Melnichenko.
