Russian Billionaire To Get Married To Win A Bet
March 13, 2007
In order to win a bet that he would marry before he turns 42, Russian billionaire bon vivant Mikhail Prokhorov plans to spend $10 million on his wedding to a woman he has never met.
According to the Russian media, the lavish wedding ceremony with 700 guests would be held in the Maldives on his 42nd birthday, which falls on May 3. Organizers of the wedding say that Prokhorov is not aware which girl he is marrying.
The 6-foot-7 Moscow businessman would rather lose on millions on an uncommon wedding than lose a bet. He is dubbed as Russia's most eligible bachelor, who made his wealth by investing in nickel and gold. Last year, he was listed by Forbes magazine as the 89th richest person in the world.
The playboy is famous for his partying on the French Riviera and was also caught up in a prostitution investigation at a posh ski resort in the French Alps in January. However, the hottest man of Moscow was released a few days later without any trouble.
