(THE SUN) MEGA rich billionaire George Soros, 82, is set to get married again – to his girlfriend who is less than half his age.
Invester Soros – worth £20billion – will tie the knot with 40-year-old yoga firm boss Tamiko Bolton.
The trader met Bolton in the spring of 2008, and they shared their joy with friends at Soros’ summer home in Southampton, New York, recently.
Soros proposed to Bolton, 40, a few weeks ago during a weekend visit to the Hamptons, a summer beachside colony on Long Island frequented by New York’s wealthy.
It will be dad-of-five Soros’ third marriage, and Bolton’s second.
The engagement ring Soros gave Bolton, according to a person close to the trader, is a Graff diamond in a platinum setting on a rose gold band.
Last year, Adriana Ferreyr, a former girlfriend of Soros, filed a lawsuit in Manhattan state court, alleging he reneged on a promise to buy her an apartment. Soros has filed a pending motion to dismiss the lawsuit filed by the former Brazilian soap opera star.
Also in 2011, Soros, who is an active contributor to politically liberal causes and frequently speaks on world economic events, converted his hedge fund into a family office and stopped managing money for outside investors.
Soros rose to fame and fortune two decades ago on a now-historic trade, in which he took on the Bank of England and shrewdly wagered on a devaluation of the pound.
Bolton, who once started an Internet-based dietary supplement business and is now running a web-based yoga education business, has a masters degree in business from the University of Miami.
