Wives and girlfriends of famous, influential and attractive men, their relationship secrets. We will tell you all about the companions of the world famous oligarchs.
Who are they - the wives and girlfriends of the powerful, the richest, most famous, influential and attractive men? What do they look like, what do they do and why exactly are they next to these men? We will tell you all about the companions of the world famous oligarchs.
1. Vyacheslav Doronin and Naomi Campbell
The slender blue-eyed Russian Vyacheslav Doronin, who by his 48 years modestly possessed $ 2 billion and was a co-owner of the profitable Capital Group, was bypassed by popular media until recently. The handsome Doronin became known to the general public thanks to his affair with the legendary "Black Panther", supermodel Naomi Campbell.
The couple met at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008. The relationship developed rapidly: Vyacheslav immediately began to make his new girlfriend mind-blowing gifts, take her to exotic islands, and perform romantic acts. Six months later, journalists started talking that the novel of a beautiful couple was moving towards a wedding. The Russian businessman gave his beloved a ring worth 200 thousand euros.
Relationship with Naomi is a shock for Doronin's family and loved ones. According to his friends, Vyacheslav is a calm, balanced, restrained person and, until recently, a wonderful family man (Doronin's marriage with his ex-wife Ekaterina lasted 21 years). And Campbell, as you know, is famous for her high-profile scandals, aggressive behavior, passion for alcoholic beverages and drugs.
Relationship Secret: Attraction of opposites. Next to Naomi, the serious and strict Doronin feels the fullness of life, taking a break from his multimillion-dollar business.

2. Roman Abramovich and Dasha Zhukova
The relationship of the most beloved Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich with the clever, beautiful, daughter of London oil magnates Daria Zhukova has been going on for six years.
Where did Zhukova, who managed to be the bride of the famous tennis player Marat Safin, be able to meet Abramovich (who, we recall, at that time was associated with a second marriage with his wife Irina)? It all started in 2005 with a party in honor of the English football club Chelsea, which is owned by Abramovich. For two years, the couple was noticed at events, by 2007 Roman divorced his legal wife, and at the end of 2009, Dasha gave birth to a son to the Russian oligarch.
You cannot reproach the bride of the once richest Russian in the world for selfishness - Zhukova, who recently turned 28, is the director of the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture and co-owner of the Kova & T clothing brand. But the main thing is that she herself is a rich heiress: her father, Alexander Zhukov, is an oil and bank tycoon, founder of the once famous Sintez Oil company and a longtime friend of Abramovich.
Relationship secret: territorial feature. The couple is known for their all-consuming love for the "second home" of all Russian oligarchs - London. Dasha grew up in the capital of England, while Abramovich owns half of his real estate there. Again, the couple's acquaintance took place in Foggy Albion. Independent and self-sufficient Zhukova is a true and equal partner of the most charming Russian businessman.

3. Oleg Deripaska and his wife Polina
The "aluminum king" of Russia, 42-year-old Oleg Deripaska, has been happily married to a beautiful girl Polina for 10 years. It may seem to the uninitiated that the billionaire and the owner of the Basic Element company, Deripaska, became interested in a simple girl, as is usually the case in fairy tales. But of course this is not the case.
Firstly, the future spouses met not just somewhere, but at the dacha of Roman Abramovich, where “simple girls” are not allowed to enter. Secondly, Polina's father is Valentin Yumashev, a former adviser to Boris Yeltsin and, among other things, the husband of Yeltsin's daughter. Such a complex history of the Yumashev family did not frighten Deripaska at all.
Now Polina, who recently turned 31, is the chairman of the board of directors of the largest publishing house Forward Media Group. She supervises the publications HELLO !, Story, Interior + Design.
Relationship secret: mutually beneficial cooperation. Without commenting on the feelings that bind the spouses, we note: kinship with the family of former President Yeltsin is very beneficial to businessman Deripaska. Marriage with one of the most influential Russian entrepreneurs, Polina, is also very beneficial. Maintaining the status and well-being of each other, the husband and wife have been living together for a good ten years.

4. Emin Agalarov and his wife Leyla Aliyeva
Emin Agalarov is 31 years old, he is rich (Agalarov is the commercial director of Crocus International and the heir to billionaire Aras Agalarov) and good-looking. Such a man needs a real princess next to him, which is what Leyla Aliyeva has become.
Calling Leila a princess is quite fair, because she is the daughter of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev. Young people met at a ski resort, but even a representative of such a respected and, to put it mildly, wealthy family was initially refused in response to a marriage proposal. The real passion that broke out between Emin and Leila, who at that time was considered one of the most enviable brides in the world, helped Agalarov to enter the world elite of big politics.
In addition to the status of the presidential daughter, Leyla is the chief editor of the Baku magazine, which is published in Moscow, but is designed for the Azerbaijani diaspora. Aliyev's editorial duties are combined with the role of a mother: in 2008, the girl gave birth to two twin boys.
Relationship Secret: Kinship. Despite the fact that since 2006 the Agalar-Aliyev couple have been living in Moscow, they met in Azerbaijan, where both Leila and Emin are from. Love for your roots, respect for your home country and reverence for your parents - as well as, of course, unearthly feelings - that's the whole secret of a happy family life.

5. Alisher Usmanov and Irina Viner
Alisher Usmanov, 57-year-old billionaire, owner of the largest metallurgical enterprises, linked his life with the outstanding gymnastics coach Irina Viner.
How did fate bring Usmanov and Viner together? The future spouses were united by sports: Alisher went to the fencing section (and became, by the way, a master of sports), and young Irina was engaged in rhythmic gymnastics in the same hall.
The secret of the relationship: community of interests and separation (spouses meet several times a week, preferring to communicate productively and with interest for a short time, rather than dying of boredom in each other's company, like most married couples). In addition, they have every reason to trust each other - in those distant years, when they got married, no one could have thought that the young swordsman Alisher would become a major billionaire, and Wiener would turn from a simple gymnast into an honored trainer known throughout the world. The marriage between Viner and Usmanov is an example of “old school” family relations, when the life partner is really one and for life.
6. Vladimir Potanin and his wife Natalya
A permanent member of the list of 200 richest businessmen in Russia, Vladimir Potanin has long and happily been married to a woman named Natalya. And, despite the huge fortune and love of luxury, the Russian billionaire has never been seen in intrigues and extramarital love relationships for many years of marriage.
The couple have three children, who, by the way, will not get anything from the multimillion-dollar fortune of their influential father. As it became known to the public in 2010, Vladimir Potanin decided to donate his fortune to charity, leaving the heirs without an inheritance. Nevertheless, for now, both his wife Natalya and the children live comfortably.
Relationship secret: a warm home. Natalia Potanina decided not to waste time on a career as a model, singer or business woman. First of all, she is a mother and wife. Natalia rarely attends social events and focuses on maintaining home comfort and tranquility.

7. Vladimir Gusinsky and wife Elena
The infamous media mogul, owner of the NEWSru news resource and the RTVi television company, Vladimir Gusinsky, is known for his love affairs. His first wife, whom he left for the sake of actress Olga Prokofieva (performer of the role of Zhanna Arkadyevna in the TV series "My Fair Nanny"), was left with nothing. But the current wife of the oligarch - Elena Gusinskaya - demonstrates all the signs of the life of the rich and famous.
The relationship between Vladimir and Elena is a classic example of an office romance: she is a young lawyer in the Most group, owned by Gusinsky. He is a boss who has fallen in love with a young subordinate. Now the couple lives in Spain (first, Gusinsky was deprived of his Russian citizenship, then he was expelled from Israel, also deprived of his passport). Elena and Vladimir have two sons.
Relationship Secret: Office Romance. Vladimir Gusinsky, who does not have time to find a wife outside of working hours, found himself an ideal party without interrupting production.
8. Andrey Melnichenko and wife Alexandra Kokotovich
Another regular guest of the list of 200 richest businessmen in Russia, Andrei Melnichenko, has tied the knot with the most beautiful girl in Serbia, model Alexandra Kokotovich. Their marriage is the most common model of relationships in the realm of the rich and famous: "model + oligarch." The wedding of Kokotovich and Melnichenko was, by the standards of the powerful, modest - the couple spent "only" $ 35 million. But today Sandra is considered the chief specialist in couture outfits and a real benefactor of her beloved industry - thanks to a dozen of such enthusiasts as her, the world of haute couture is still exists.
Many would like to become the wife of the head of MDM Bank and the dollar billionaire Melnichenko; the young man was one of the wealthiest suitors, hunted by the most beautiful women in the world.
Relationship secret: beauty will save the world. For his impressive fortune, businessman Melnichenko received a luxurious beauty - the recognized Miss Yugoslavia. The girl is also not at a loss - after all, connecting her life with the Russian oligarch is a profitable business. Over the years of marriage, Andrei himself has noticeably built up - glossy magazines associate his new physical form with the desire to match his beautiful wife.

9. Alexander Lebedev and Elena Perminova
51-year-old Alexander Lebedev is a successful entrepreneur holding the high position of the chairman of the board of directors of ZAO NRK. Under his leadership, the London newspapers Independent and Evening Standard are published. But the past of the handsome gray-haired man is turbulent: Lebedev in the past is a deputy of the State Duma, noticed in espionage activities. Such a man found a girl to match.
Alexander's wife is model Elena Perminova (she is 26 years old, the age difference between the spouses is 25 years). A simple girl from Berdyansk became known not only as a Playboy star and the heroine of video clips of domestic stars - the model attracted public attention after an unpleasant incident with charges of drug trafficking. Then 17-year-old Perminova, who fell under the influence of the then boyfriend, who was engaged in illegal business, just like in a fairy tale, Alexander Lebedev came to the rescue. The girl got off with a suspended sentence, corrected herself and thanked her savior with love, devotion and her son Nikita, who was born to the couple in 2009.
Relationship Secret: Noble Knight. A strong and domineering patron - isn't a good half of women dreaming of such a companion? Elena Perminova got not only strong and domineering, but also extremely rich. Recall that, according to Forbes magazine, Lebedev has a personal fortune of $ 2.1 billion, lives in London, and is friends with Natasha Vodianova. They say that the marriage is very strong - the spouses are expecting their second child.
