People love to follow the lives of individuals who are rich and powerful. This has been a way of life since ancient times. Some people see these individuals as inspiration to succeed in life, and others just want the scoop on how these rich individuals live. With money comes women, and these rich, successful men have picked the hottest women they could find when it came time to find a partner. Let’s see all the amazing women that these wealthy men have been with over the years.
Stephen and Ayesha Curry
Stephen Curry, a two-time NBA MVP, and two-time NBA champion scored the richest NBA contract in history. The overall contract is valued at five years, $201 million! No NBA analyst would have predicted the shooter from Davidson would be the richest in the NBA. We know his wife, Ayesha is happy.
The two met when they were teenagers. Their first date was “cheesy” but Ayesha had stereotyped him as just another one of those arrogant athletes but after the first time they hung out, that all changed. “He was so funny and silly,” she says, “the absolute opposite of what I thought he was going to be.”
Francois-Henri Pinault and Salma Hayek
Francois-Henri Pinault is a French businessman who was born into wealth. He is the CEO of a company called Kering which deals with the sale of luxury goods. Francois-Henri Pinault is also the CEO of Groupes Artemis, which owns Christie’s, the largest art business in the world. He has a net worth of $33.2 billion.
Francois-Henri Pinault is married to actress Salma Hayek, who is known for her roles in such films as Wild, Wild West, Desperado, and Dogma among others. Salma Hayek married Francois-Henri Pinault in 2009, and they have a daughter named Valentina Paloma Pinault.
Jim Clark and Kristy Hinze
James “Jim” Clark is a computer scientist and entrepreneur. If you were around during the dot com boom, you may remember something called Netscape. Jim Clark is the man behind the creation of Netscape. The company was at one time a popular search engine but now functions as a web browser.
Those wonderful geeks have a way with women it seems, and Jim Clark found himselfa fourth wife in Kristy Hinze. Kristy Hinze is a model and an actress who has appeared in Sports Illustrated and also Victoria’s Secret. Jim is 36 years Kristy’s senior but love has no boundaries.
James & Petra Stunt
James Stunt is a colorful British businessman who’s worth a reported $3 billion. Stunt is reportedly known for being an art dealer who loves throwing incredibly lavish and expensive parties, however, there is one mystery around him: just how exactly did he make his $3 billion? In 2015 the Daily Mail published an article focusing on that question, with the headline in part asking “What Does…James Stunt Actually Do?”
His ex-wife Petra Stunt is perhaps better known due to the fact that she’s the daughter of Bernie Ecclestone, a British billionaire who was the CEO of the Formula One Group. James and Petra married in 2011 in a ceremony that reportedly cost $12 million. They divorced in 2017.
Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto
Superstar Michael Jordan has many claims to fame. Not only is he one of the best NBA players in history, but he also has one of the most popular shoe brands in the world and owns the Charlotte Hornets. All this has contributed to his $2.1 billion net worth.
Yvette Prieto and Jordan met at a club in 2007, and were married in April 2013 in Palm Beach, Florida. They made it official in front of 500 people and have twin daughters together, in addition to Jordan’s three other children.
Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian
Alexis Ohanian is the co-founder of one of the most popular American websites, Reddit. Reddit is a site that contains almost everything you are looking for on the internet. Whatever you think of might possibly be found on Reddit.
And Serena Williams is one of the most dominant athletes on the face of this planet. She’s always breaking records and always winning. No other women in tennis come close to her, not even her sister. These two have a huge combined net worth and but the majority of that comes from Williams. Ohanian has a net worth of $70 million.
Evan Spiegel and Miranda Kerr
What do you do when you have a net worth of $2.1 billion at the age of 26? You marry a supermodel. Evan Spiegel, the co-founder and CEO of Snapchat, quickly accumulated his fortune while he was still a student at Standford University. He began dating then-33-year-old Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr in June 2015 and the two were engaged as quickly as Spiegel amassed his wealth.
The Australian supermodel is one of the highest-earning models and told The Sydney Morning Herald, “We met at a dinner in LA for Louis Vuitton and became friends. We were really good friends for a long time before we started dating.”
Brian Chesky and Elissa Patel
Airbnb founder Brian Chesky has a net worth of $4.1 billion that he amassed in under 10 years. A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Chesky was unemployed in 2007 when he first came up with the idea of the “Air Bed and Breakfast.” He met his girlfriend, Elissa Patel, on Tindr, of all places.
She’s also a techie, and has worked at Frontback, a photo app, before starting her own venture. Brian and Elissa are your typical fun, young couple who do yoga and travel together, spending weekends in Airbnbs. They’ve also been spotted at media conferences together.
Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez
Jeff Bezos is the man behind the largest online marketplace in the world. You may have heard of this marketplace… it’s called Amazon.com. Bezos is responsible for making Amazon a household name and the company has made him one of the wealthiest men in the world.
After a high-profile divorce from his former wife MacKenzie, Bezos is now seeing a TV anchor named Lauren Sanchez, who is a licensed helicopter pilot and aerial filmmaker! Sanchez, who has three children, is 50 years old.
Flavia Sampaio and Eike Batista
Eike Batista is the chairman of the EBX Group. This company is in the industry of mining, oil, and gas. Batista has gained a lot of cash from this company, so much cash that he is the richest man in all of Brazil.
Since Batista is loaded with money, he has chosen one of the hottest women as his partner. Batista’s lover is the super hot Flavia Sampaio. Flavia Sampaio is a lawyer, but she looks more like a model or a movie star. She heads an organization called the Institute Consciousness, which was started in order to help children.
Dave Morin and Brit Morin
One of the early employees of Facebook, Dave Morin made out with a small fortune and used it to found his next project, social network Path. The young billionaire has a net worth of $100 million and shocked the tech world when he turned down a $100 million buyout in early 2011. At 39 years old, he’s also a top downhill ski racer.
He married Brit, who worked at Google in 2011 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The 34-year-old launched her business Brit + Co which serves as an online DIY media and e-commerce company. The techy young couple is one of the “it” couples of Silicon valley.
Tom Freston and Kathy Freston
Tom Freston is an entertainment executive. He has had a hand in the creation of a few cable channels, namely Music Television, better known as MTV. He has also spawned such channels as Nickelodeon, VH1, Country Music Channel, and TV Land among several other more channels. Freston is also the head of Viacom television.
With $300 million to his name, Tom Freston was married to Kathy Freston, a former model and self-help author by trade. The two split a few years back in 2012 and they maintain a great friendship together. Still, the pattern of rich guys and their penchant for models and other shapely women is clear, whether the marriages work out or not.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen
Now considered by many to be the greatest of all time or the GOAT, Tom Brady has achieved legendary status. His latest Super Bowl victory in 2017 was one for the ages as he led a huge comeback against the Atalanta Falcons. It was in question where he stood on the list of all-time greats but the debate is over now, he is the greatest.
He is married to the beautiful Gisele Bundchen who is an amazing supermodel. He has a net worth of $180 million and hers is at $400 million. It isn’t a problem if your wife makes more than you if you are the greatest of all time and if you too are a millionaire.
Jay-Z and Beyoncé
The king of rap became a billionaire in 2017. His net worth was at $810 million and then he signed a $200 million dollar deal with Live Nation that covered worldwide touring. There was a battle for the richest in hip-hop between Diddy and Jay but now it looks like Jay has won that battle for the time being.
Jay has also won the battle for having the most beautiful woman in hip-hop as his wife. Yeah, you have your Rihannas and Alicia Keys but Queen Bey reigns supreme. The singer can do it all, dance, act, and be a wonderful mother. The two are now the first billionaire rap couple and should only make more as time goes on.
Sean Parker and Alexandra Lenas
Sean Parker’s name has been swirling around the tech industry since he co-founded Napster back in 1999. Parker was also the first president of Facebook (who Justin Timberlake played in The Social Network) and has co-founded several other ventures since. Although he never went to college, Parker now boasts a net worth of $2.6 billion and generously donates to the Parker Foundation.
He married his wife Alexandra Lenas in 2013 between the trees in Big Sur, California. Their wedding spanned three days and cost $4.5 million. The couple bought their $55 million mansion from Ellen DeGeneres and live a lavish lifestyle with their two children.
Ernesto Bertarelli and Kirsty Roper
Ernesto Bertarelli is a Swiss businessman of Italian descent. Ernesto Bertarelli became the CEO of Serono, which is a pharmaceutical company. He and his sister Donna inherited the Serono company from their father in 1998. Serono became famous after the company found a hormone to treat women with infertility issues.
Bertarelli’s company has helped a lot of individuals who want to have babies. He found his baby mama Kirsty Roper in 1997. She held the crown of Miss UK in 1988, and is also a songwriter. Bertarelli and Roper got married in 1997 and have three children together.
Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal and Ameera al-Taweel
Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal has a massive fortune of $21.5 billion. He’s the grandson of the first Saudi king, Ibn Saud, and works as a businessman and investor in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. In 2015 he was named by Forbes as the 41st richest man in the world. He met his third wife, Ameera al-Taweel, when she was 18 and he was 32.
Ameera is an outspoken activist for women in Saudi Arabia, and is an advocate for women’s right to drive in the country. She made many media international appearances, which irritated Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal’s brother, Prince Khalid. Khalid warned his brother to control his wife’s media appearances. The couple divorced in November of 2013.
Robert Kraft and Ricki Lander
Then-74-year-old New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft managed to catch the eye of beautiful 34-year-old Ricki Lander, and we wonder why. No, not really, but it’s interesting that these two were seen reconnecting at the 2015 Golden Globes party after what seemed to be a break following a four-year relationship.
Due to a broken heart after losing his wife of 48 years to cancer, Kraft was not interested in remarrying, although Lander did her best to lock him down. Things didn’t work out, however, and the couple split up in 2018.
James “Jimmy” Goldstein Doesn’t Believe In Marriage
You might recognize James “Jimmy” Goldstein from his courtside seats at NBA games. The basketball superfan and millionaire attends around 100 games in a season and has attended more than 2,000 NBA games in his lifetime, so far.
Sitting next to him, more often than not, is a stunning woman, including Danish model Amalie Wichmann. Although Goldstein– worth a reported $350 million– says he “doesn’t believe in marriage” he has no trouble keeping beautiful company.
Larry Ellison And Nikita Kahn
Having as much money in the bank as tech billionaire Larry Ellison could attract women for the wrong reasons. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy a life of luxury? But that’s not the case with his girlfriend, actress Nikita Khan, who is a millionaire in her own right.
The couple started dating in 2010 when Ellison was 66 years old and Kahn was just 19– yes, that’s a 47 year age gap in case you were doing the math. It must be true love, because he named his Malibu restaurant after her!
John Paul Dejoria and Eloise Broady
John Paul Dejoria is a Greek-Italian-American billionaire who consequently started off life as a poor immigrant and in Los Angeles, California. He was once part of a street gang, but he turned his life around when a math teacher told him that he “would never succeed at anything in life.” Dejoria is a businessman and philanthropist, and the co-founder of the Paul Mitchell line of hair products.
The Patron Spirits company is also in his ownership. The billionaire is married to Eloise Broady, who is a former playmate who appeared in Playboy in April 1988. They have four children together.
Jack Dorsey and Kate Greer
Jack Dorsey is an internet entrepreneur and co-founder of the widely successful social media platform, Twitter. Dorsey started out programming at the age of 14 and became an innovator before the age of 35 with his invention of Twitter. He is also a board member of The Walt Disney Company and Square, Inc. Dorsey holds a net worth of $1.27 billion.
One of the billionaire’s lovers was a lady by the name of Kate Greer. Kate Greer is a designer who dated Dorsey for four years before they called it quits.
Rupert Murdoch and Wendi Deng
Rupert Murdoch is a well-known media mogul who is synonymous with wealth, with a whopping $18.2 billion to his name. He is one of the richest men in the world and perhaps one of the wealthiest men in history.
Murdoch met his ex-wife Wendi Deng in 1999 while she was working for one of his companies. Although Murdoch is 38 years older than Deng, they had two daughters together. In their divorce, Deng reportedly kept the $44 million three-floor Manhattan penthouse and their girls inherited a third of his estate while the two share joint custody over their children.
Roman Abramovich and Dasha Zhukova
Roman Abramovich is a businessman and entrepreneur who has made his fortune in the oil and gas business. He’s the chairman of Millhouse LLC, which is an investment company that deals with aluminum and pulp and also insurance. Abramovich is the 10th richest person in Russia, with a net worth of $12.9 billion.
Roman Abramovich was married to Dasha Zhukova, and managed to somehow keep the marriage a secret for six whole years! Zhukova was born in wealth to a well-to-do family. It seems that wealth attracts wealth since Dasha’s dad Alexander Radkin Zhukov is an oil magnate as well. Dasha and Roman were divorced in 2017.
LeBron and Savannah James
LeBron James has a net worth in the range of $450 million as of 2020. He should only see that grow with his highly marketable personal brand and that lifetime $1 billion dollar deal he signed with Nike. LeBron makes money even when he takes a rest day in the NBA. There have been rumors of him permanently relocating to Los Angeles once he is done with the NBA so that he could make more money.
He has been with his wife Savannah since high school and the two have three children together.
Guy Laliberte and Claudia Barilla
Guy Laliberte is a very rich man. He is so rich, that he has a net worth of $2.6 billion in USD. Guy Laliberte is an investor by trade and is also a professional poker player. How does the game of poker and being a billionaire go hand-in-hand? This is beyond me, but it does seem to work for Guy Laliberte.
Having all of that cash is no fun unless there is someone to spend it with. Guy Laliberte definitely has someone to share his cash with. No one wants to grow old and be lonely, especially when you are in the money. Laliberte is married to knock-out Claudia Barilla.
Fahd and Maya Hariri
The sixth richest man in Lebanon, Fahd Hariri boasts a net worth of $1.22 billion. The 39-year-old is the son of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, a business tycoon who was assassinated in 2005 when explosives detonated as his line of cars drove past a hotel in Beirut. Fahd Hariri studied architecture in Paris, France where he now lives, and credits his love for real estate development to his father’s influence.
Although not much is known about his wife, Maya, the couple are spotted together at Fashion Week events in Paris, and hold the title as one of the youngest billionaire couples in the world.
Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan
The CEO and co-founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg has a net worth of $99.6 billion, at only 36 years old. The Harvard University graduate has been one of the wealthiest people in the world for many years now and has made a huge impact in the world of social media.
He married his wife Priscilla Chan in 2012. Priscilla also attended Harvard, and works as a pediatrician. The young and wealthy couple has one daughter together, Maxima Chan Zuckerberg, born in late 2015. They are also active philanthropists and head several charitable foundations.
Larry Page and Lucy Southworth
Larry Page is one of the co-founders of Google. He and Sergey Brin created Google almost twenty years ago. Many people think that tech geeks are guys who are socially awkward and have a hard time getting together with a potential life mate but in this case, that is simply not true.
Larry Page found his soul mate in Lucy Southworth. A guy with a lot of intelligence like Page became attracted to a woman with a lot of intelligence. Southworth is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and she holds an M.S. in Science from Oxford. Lucy and Larry have two children together.
Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall
And making the list once again, Rupert Murdoch with his blushing new bride Jerry Hall. Jerry is famously known for being the ex-wife of the Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger, as well as a former model in her youth. Many people thought that Murdoch wasn’t going to be able to find another wife after Deng considering he is 85 years old, but here he is again to make the list for the third time.
After Hall’s divorce to Jagger, she earned $40 million, so there is an interesting buzz about why the two got together after all this time. And, considering Murdoch’s net worth is estimated at $12.4 billion, the two should live quite comfortably for the rest of his years.
Adam Neumann and Rebekah Paltrow Neumann
Young billionaire Adam Neumann co-founded WeWork in 2010. The company specializes in subleasing office units, essentially re-imagining the workplace model to make it affordable for startups and other young companies. Born in Tel Aviv, Neumann served in the Israeli military before moving to New York to “get rich.” Needless to say, his plan worked.
Adam and his wife Rebekah say it was love at first sight when the couple met, and it was before Neumann had made it big. She kept him grounded, introducing him to kabbalah and talking about achieving happiness and wellness, because that’s when wealth follows. Her mantras became the mission statement for the company.
Mike Cannon-Brookes and Annie Cannon-Brookes
The young Australian billionaire co-founded business software company Atlassian with his college buddy and took their venture public in December 2015. Mike Cannon-Brookes’ clients include major players like Tesla, NASA, Citigroup, and eBay, and has contributed to his $8.5 billion net worth.
Mike’s wife Annie owns a fashion business independently of her husband’s fortune and business. The couple lives in a $12 million mansion in Sydney with their three young kids, and say their goal is to make their children’s lives as normal as possible, despite their billion in the bank.
Steve Wynn and Elaine Wynn
When you’re a billionaire going through a divorce, it’s certainly hard to keep it out of the media. Just ask Steve Wynn, whose second divorce from ex-wife Elaine Wynn made some noise when it was discovered he would be paying up $741 million in Wynn Resorts stock for the breakup. The couple had built an empire together, two actually, in Las Vegas casinos.
They got together in 1963, divorced in 1986, and remarried in 1991. They called it quits again in 2010. After the divorce, Steve Wynn (net worth of $2.4 billion) quickly married socialite Andrea Hissom in 2011 in a huge, extravagant wedding that garnered plenty of media attention.
Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani
Mukesh Ambani is a business magnate who is involved in the petrochemicals industry. He has a stake in a company named Reliance Industries Limited, aka RIL. He is a stakeholder in Reliance Retail Ltd which is the largest retailer in the nation of India. Mukesh Ambani has held the title of being the richest person in India for the past ten years according to Forbes magazine.
Mukesh Ambani is married to Nita Ambani. Nita Ambani has a stake in Reliance Industries and she also owns a cricket team called the Mumbai Indians. Nita uses her money to help people who are in need, and helps raise money to improve education and also assist people who are blind. They have three children together.
Tom Gores and Holly Gores
Billionaire Tom Gores earned his $4.1 billion with his company Platinum Equity, a private firm based in Beverly Hills. He was born in Israel, and grew up with humble beginnings in Michigan, even working as a janitor while he attended college. He’s now a billionaire and owns the Detroit Pistons. Gores also helped his home state in the Flint lead crisis in 2016, pledging to help raise $10 million.
He met his wife Holly before he made it big. The two are happily married with three children, and do philanthropy work together.
Michael Schumacher and Corinna Betsch
Before he retired, German race car driver Michael Schumacher earned $800 million. He won seven Formula One World Championships and is noted as one of the greatest Formula One drivers of all time. Now 51 years old, Schumacher was lucky to survive a near-deadly skiing accident that happened in December of 2013. He suffered a severe head injury that sent him into a coma.
Three years later, he’s still suffering from the accident, as his wife, Corinna, and two teenage kids stand by him in recovery. His son Mick may very well follow his father’s footsteps in Formula One racing, while his daughter is a competitive equestrian rider.
Dirk Ziff and Natasha Bacigalupo
Dirk Ziff has a fortune of $4.8 billion, as the eldest son of media magnate William Ziff Jr., who inherited the family fortune in 1994. Ziff attended Columbia University and Harvard before forming an investment company with his brothers Daniel and Robert. Coincidentally, Dirk met his wife Natasha simply because he was a billionaire.
Natasha, a reporter at Forbes, was sent to interview Dirk for an article about billionaires in the ’90s. It was love at first sight as the couple soon married and had two children. They split their time between their Palm Beach, Florida home and their vacation home in Martha’s Vineyard.
Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren
Tiger Woods was once the greatest golfer to grace the face of Earth. Any tournament or major he was in, he was always the favorite. That is, until, he got into the spousal drama with ex-wife Elin Nordegren. We all know he cheated and since then, his skills have not been the same. After the divorce, Nordegren was silent but in 2016 she decided to speak out.
“I have moved on and I am in a good place,” Nordegren says. “My relationship with Tiger is centered around our children and we are doing really good – we really are – and I am so happy that is the case. He is a great father.”
Phil Jackson and Jeanie Buss
Phil Jackson is a name you bring up in the argument for the best person to have ever coached in the NBA. He led Michael Jordan to six rings and led Kobe Bryant to five. Pretty good statistics if you ask us. For the longest time, he was with Lakers executive Jeanie Buss.
Phil Jackson accepted a position as President of the New York Knicks so he had to relocate to New York. That just made the relationship ten times harder and eventually in late 2016, the two decided to split. “With mutual love and respect, we have decided to end our engagement,” Jackson wrote on Twitter. “With the nature of out professional obligations and geographic distance between us, sustaining the relationships has been difficult.” Jackson’s net worth is at $70 million.
Steve Ballmer and Connie Snyder
Steve Ballmer’s name became more well-known in the past years but he gained a huge amount of publicity after he decided to buy the Los Angeles Clippers. Prior to owning an NBA franchise, he was the CEO of Microsoft starting in 2000 after Bill Gates decided to step down. His being the CEO of Microsoft should let you know how much money he has.
Connie Snyder is an advocate for the well-being of children. She started her career in public relations after receiving her degree in journalism from the University of Oregon. The two got married in 1990 after they met at Microsoft when they were just employees.
Phil Knight and Penny Knight
We all have Phil Knight to thank for the success of Nike. He helped Nike build its success by gaining athlete and celebrity endorsement deals. He and Penny met while he was working at Portland State University and they were married in 1968.
Recently, the couple donated $500 million to the University of Oregon. “In an age of declining public support for scientific research generally and declining public higher education support specifically, Penny and I are delighted to contribute to these critically important areas,” said Phil Knight.
Mariah Carey and James Packer
You knew it was coming eventually, even though the two have decided to go their separate ways. Successful and famous diva Mariah Carey caught the eye of billionaire James Packer, but it didn’t last long until Packer realized that Mariah was going to rob him blind.
With lavish trips for her dogs, a ridiculously over-priced glam squad, his and hers yachts and insanely expensive spa sessions, Carey was going to be the personal anchor to James’s yacht if you know what we mean. But, who could blame him, Mariah Carey used to be every man’s dream. Her dreams have just gotten a bit too large for even billionaires to handle. To make matters even worse, Mariah didn’t even give Packer the $10 million ring back! But, Packer’s estimated $3.4 billion can most likely manage without the rock.
George Soros and Tamiko Bolton
The billionaire investor George Soros, now 90, found a much younger woman to be his third wife. Forty-eight-year-old Tamiko Bolton met the wealthy trader in 2008 and the two were married in 2013.
Hungarian-born Soros, who survived Nazi Germany-occupied Hungary, is estimated to be worth around $8.2 billion and has five children from his previous marriages. Apart from his wealth and business smarts, he is also known as a supporter of progressive political causes.
Phil Ruffin and Oleksandra Nikolayenko
Phil Ruffin is a businessman and billionaire who has made his fortune in horse racing and investing in casinos. He has also dabbled convenience stores and real estate. His diverse business ventures have made him a billionaire, with a net worth of $2.5 billion.
Speaking of horse racing and casinos, Ruffin hit the jackpot when he found his second wife Oleksandra Nikolayenko. She’s an actress and model who is Hungarian but hails from Ukraine. Nikolayenko has won numerous pageant awards in Ukraine and has even set a record for having the most wins in pageants in the country. She married Ruffin in 2008 and they have a son named Richard William.
