Roman was a successful entrepreneur, owner of the Chelsea Football club and one of Russia’s wealthiest individuals. He married his wife Irina (his second marriage), in 1999. Over the next decades his fortune skyrocketed. He became extremely close friends with Vladimir Putin. It was actually Putin who told him to “clean up his act”, so he filed for a quicky divorce. You see, he was having a much publicized affair with former model Daria Zhukova. When the publicity and photos of Roman and Daria vacationing together around the globe started to surface the divorce was negotiated quickly and closed in Moscow in about 6 weeks. Rumors are that Putin intervened to expedite his embarrassment of a wealthy financial ambassador of the new Russia being disgraced. Irina was awarded somewhere between $300-$400 Million including such assets as cash and 4 houses in the UK. One of the properties she received was a Sussex estate worth 18 Million British pounds. He got to keep his beloved Chelsea FC team (and his girlfriend).
