Later, when Adam established himself in the film industry, his parents also appeared in a few acting projects, majorly playing themselves in documentaries or projects based on their son's life.

Besides, the Happy Gilmore star also has three siblings in his family, with who he spent most of his childhood and teenage. He has one brother, Scott Sandler, and two sisters, Elizabeth Sandler and Valerie Sandler.

But contrary to Adam, who is often in the news and manages a luxurious lifestyle, his siblings have a simple and private life. 

Adam Sandler's Brother Is Allegedly a Lawyer

Adam's elder brother Scott was reportedly born on May 12, 1960, in Brooklyn, New York. He currently works as a lawyer.

According to the LA Times, Scott helped his brother Adam win a legal dispute against a nanny who took care of the actor's children and accused his company of slavery.

The nanny was also ordered to pay back the $48,000 that HP Production (Adam's company) had paid her under the settlement and cover HP's more than $33,000 in attorney fees.

Scott is not much seen in the media, apart from a few appearances during red carpet events of Adam's movie projects. For instance, he attended Adam Sandler Footprint Ceremony at the Chinese Theatre in California in May 2005.

His Sister Elizabeth Sandler Is a Dentist

While Adam's brother is a lawyer, his one sister, Elizabeth, is a dentist. Her bio on the Wellness website reveals that her dental office is in Manchester, New Hampshire.

However, she also maintains a very private life, due to which her personal life details remain under wraps.

The actor's other sister Valerie is even more private. Some internet outlets claim she works in the food industry and leads a conservative way of life.

An Instagram handle with username @sandva12  — that seemingly belongs to Valerie — suggests that she prefers an EDM lifestyle and is a student of biology and linguistics.

However, the details available on the internet relating to Valerie could not be all correct, as no official source has revealed the righteous facts about her personal life.
