Out of the 7 billion people living on this planet, 2,668 are billionaires. That may seem like a lot, but it’s only a fraction of the global population. These billionaires are in charge of running some of the giant and most influential companies in the world. The world’s wealthiest people often choose to date and marry someone who they believe will be a supportive and understanding partner. And, of course, they also want someone who is attracted to them and their lifestyle.
You might be familiar with the faces of many of the world’s wealthiest people, but the people they choose to stay with might surprise you. So, here are some of the billionaires in the world today and the women they decided to have and hold.
Grimes and Elon Musk
Tesla founder Elon Musk has been married and divorced a few times since his company first started becoming successful. His most recent partner was Claire Boucher, a Canadian musician who goes by Grimes.
The two had not a continuous relationship. But Musk is now reportedly dating someone new. Musk and Grimes met through a Twitter discussion about French art and an AI dystopia. However, they are likely most famous for naming their two children. They named their boy X Æ A-12 and their baby girl Exa Dark Sideræl Musk. While we don’t know how to pronounce those names, we think they’re beautiful.
John Paul Dejoria And Eloise Broady Dejoria
In 1993, John Paul Dejoria and Eloise Broady Dejoria were married. They might not be familiar names, but you likely know John from his hair care company Paul Mitchell. Eloise is well known for her business, philanthropy, and modeling work. In 2011 they signed the Giving Pledge, in which they promised to give away at least half of their fortunes. The couple has nearly 13 years of age difference.
Mark Zuckerberg And Priscilla Chan
Priscilla Chan is the wife of Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg. She is one of the few people on this list that does not need an introduction. They met in 2003 while waiting in line for the bathroom at his “going-away” party. After that, the two are often seen together at events and parties. In 2012, they had a surprising wedding ceremony and have been married ever since.
Miranda Kerr and Snapchat’s Evan Spiegel
Evan Spiegel is a co-founder of Snapchat and one of the youngest billionaires in the world. He achieved this milestone at just 25 years old. Evan’s still worth around $3 billion. In 2017, he married Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr. The couple met during an event at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. They have two sons together, along with a son from her previous marriage to Orlando Bloom.
Steve Jobs And Laurene Powell Jobs
The late Steve Jobs left an impressive legacy after he passed away in 2011. And his influence is still evident today. I don’t think there is anyone who hasn’t heard of the Apple founder. Upon his death, he also left a large fortune to his widow, Laurene Powell Jobs. The pair met during a lecture that Steve delivered at Stanford in 1989, and they were married two years later. Today, Laurene uses most of her wealth for charity.
Larry Ellison And Nikita Kahn
Larry Ellison is the founder of Oracle. Oracle is a company that provides cloud-based solutions for businesses. He has a net worth of around $92 billion and has been dating Nikita Kahn for about a decade. Kahn is a model, actress, and businesswoman. She is also very popular for her animal advocacy. Nikita Kahn was born in 1991 in the Soviet Union, and Larry was born in 1944. They have an age difference of almost 47 years.
Leslie Moonves And Julie Chen
Leslie Moonves was in the service as CEO of CBS from 2003 to 2018. But you’re probably more familiar with his wife, Julie Chen. She was a news anchor at CBS for many years and is now a producer and T.V. show host. The couple married in 2004, but Julie still hosts the network’s reality show named Big Brother. She initially wanted to be the face of 60 Minutes, but she had to accept the position.
Richard Branson And Joan Templeman
Although Richard Branson is one of the most public people in the world, no one knows much about his wife, Joan Templeton. But we do know that when they first met, she was married. She was asked for a flyover of an island that Branson claimed he was pretending to be interested in purchasing. But surprisingly, it was all just a scheme to get her to take a flight with him.
We have discussed the billion-dollar better halves and their million-dollar meeting stories. We hope you found it interesting and surprising to know whom they have decided to spend their lives with. What a queer thing life is!
