Dmitry Rybolovlev

This billionaire businessman started out in medicine but soon moved into commerce realising that enterprise would better provide for his family. He was imprisoned on falsified charges of contract murder for 11 months in 1996. Subsequently cleared, Rybolovlev then went on to make his fortune in potassium and banking. This divorced father of two has used his fortune to fund the restoration of many of Russia’s churches and also bought Donald Trump’s former residence, The Masion de L’Amitie in Palm Beach, Florida, for $95 million in 2008. This risk taker also parted with another $88 million in December 2011 to purchase New York’s most expensive apartment for his 22-year old daughter. Rybololev’s passions are surfing and 19th and 20th century art.

  1. of course reality is sometimes a little different then the tabloids make it look. the fact of the matter is that Mr. Rybololev’s didn’t really buy this flat for his daughter (she is in college hundreds of miles away) , he put the property on her name because he is shielding assets from his ex wife who is suing him. A slightly less glamorous story but closer to the truth,
