True Stories About Women the Richest People on the Planet Have Chosen
The wives of the richest men in the world: what do they look like and what do they do? If you think that they spend their entire lives in spas, wearing new dresses from famous fashion designers and going to parties, you’re wrong. Wealthy men choose women who can play the piano, write dissertations and fix TVs.
Bright Side has prepared a compilation of stories that combat the popular stereotypes about the wives of billionaires.
MacKenzie Bezos is married to the richest person in the world, Jeff Bezos. They’ve been married for almost 25 years and met each other at work: the woman had a job interview at her future husband’s company. After they got married, they lived in a small rented apartment. Today, they own Amazon, The Washington Post, and Blue Origin. But MacKenzie Bezos is not famous because of this.
MacKenzie has always wanted to become a writer and she even preferred to write stories than hang with her friends. In order to pay for her education at Princeton University, she worked as a waiter, a dishwasher, and a babysitter.
Her very first books were bestsellers and even got prestigious book awards. Today, she has her own charity foundation called 4 children, she helps her husband, and of course, writes books. She gets up at 4:30 in the morning to be able to do everything!
The story looks typical: a wealthy man married a beautiful model. However, it’s not that simple. Not everyone knows that before Melania became a model, she earned a degree in architecture and design. Later, she found herself working in this profession.
Melania wasn’t satisfied with her role as an accessory so now she is a successful watch and jewelry designer in addition to being The First Lady.
A gorgeous blonde woman named Lucinda Southworth is the wife of Larry Page, the co-founder of Google. It was not her appearance that her future husband adored about her, but rather, her love for science.
She has degrees from Oxford, Pennsylvania, and Stanford Universities, and wrote a dissertation on progressive medical technology. She is also a successful teacher and scientific researcher.
The world didn’t believe that their marriage would be strong — the bride seemed “too smart”. But in fact, this is exactly what Larry liked about her! Lucy now teaches at Stanford University and thinks it’s her calling.
This is a case where we don’t know who got luckier — the wife of the billionaire, François-Henri Pinault or the husband of the talented actress, Salma Hayek. Her path as an actress in Hollywood was not simple: she had to play maids and prostitutes but she never gave up.
Today, the entire world knows her name.
Salma Hayek has been in 30 movies and was the first Mexican woman to be nominated for an Oscar for “Best Actress”.
This is one of the most famous millionaire/billionaire couples. Unfortunately, they’re not together anymore.
Mariah Carey’s ex-boyfriend is a billionaire named James Packer. He loved giving his girlfriend presents like private jets and giant diamonds. But Mariah herself is far from poor. The world knows her as a successful singer, songwriter, producer, and actress.
According to Forbes, in 2007, Mariah Carey was the 6th wealthiest woman in the entertainment industry: her fortune was estimated at $225 million.
It is seemingly impossible to impress the owner of Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy, the man who has been surrounded by luxury and beauty his entire life. Any model would dream of being with him. But he chose a Canadian pianist named Helene Mercier. Today they have 3 children.
But what did the future wife like about Bernard? According to Helene, she loved listening to him play Chopin!
