Celebrities Who Married Billionaires and Millionaires

Becoming a famous personality around the world is something that a lot of people strive to achieve. Aside from the fame and fortune that comes with the job, becoming a celebrity also means they get to meet a lot of interesting people along the way. Among these are people who are influential in their fields and also possess a vast amount of wealth. Who needs credit cards when you have that much cash?

We’re sure some of you wonder what it’d be like to have billionaires as spouses. Aside from living a cushy life, let the celebrities on our list let you in on the pros and cons of marrying one of the wealthiest people in the world.

Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson is, without a doubt, one of the biggest names in the music industry during her time. Her songs Together Again and All For You are still played today. Aside from being Michael Jackson’s sister, she did work hard and earned a name for herself. In April of 2010, Janet Jackson met Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana. According to The Richest, he currently has a net worth of $1 billion. With so much wealth, this family wouldn’t have to worry about things such as mortgages. Some might think their wedding ceremony was an extravagant and public affair, but it was held in secret in 2012.

Sadly, after giving birth to their first child, Eissa, the couple would find themselves arguing over how to raise their son due to their different religious beliefs. One thing leads to another and in 2017, three months after Eissa was born, the couple finally parted ways.

 Miranda Kerr

Starting her career off as a Victoria’s Secret model, Miranda Kerr definitely knew how to grow her empire. Aside from modeling, she was also able to run a business, Kora Organics, and it turned out that she’s actually pretty good at it. After calling it quits with Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr met Snapchat’s CEO, Evan Spiegel in 2014. The two developed a romantic relationship which eventually led to their marriage in 2017. The Australian model first met Spiegel during a dinner event hosted by Louis Vuitton. From then on, things went slow and steady between the two of them before they finally admitted to each other about their feelings.

The couple later started their own family. They have two children, Hart and Myles. With how things are going, the Kerr-Spiegel family won’t be running out of gas anytime soon. As of 2020, Evan Spiegel has a net worth of $4.6 billion.

Salma Hayek

American-Mexican actress Salma Hayek was able to gather a huge fan base at the start of her career. With her stunning looks and fierce persona, her roles were quite versatile. Though she originally started in the TelaNovela, Teresa, she eventually stepped up and moved into the big screen.

In the spring of 2006, Frida actress Salma Hayek met Francois-Henri Pinault during a gala at the Palazzo Grassi in Venice. In 2007, they announced their engagement along with Hayek’s pregnancy. Although Pinault, the CEO of Kering, is a man of wealth himself, Hayek prefers to keep a sturdy flooring for herself to stand upon, saying, “I have a system in my life that I’ve chosen, where my expenses from before the marriage are my expenses.” Throughout their relationship, the two have always been there for each other through thick and thin. As of 2019, Francois-Henri Pinault has earned a net worth of $33.2 Billion.

Elle MacPherson

Starting her career off as a model, Eleanor Nancy Macpherson eventually expanded her network by venturing into acting and modeling as well. Her modeling career is what gave her a headstart, with her almost perfect figure, she was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated five times.

Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson got married to Jeffrey Soffer in Fiji the year after he survived a helicopter crash in the Bahamas – an event that somehow brought the two closer together. Unfortunately, things didn’t go so well for the two because, by 2017, they went their separate ways.  Macpherson ended up getting Soffer’s mansion, which was worth $26 Million, and also received $53 million in cash. Not a big loss for Soffer since he has earned a net worth of $2 billion. As for MacPherson, despite getting such a lavish home to herself, she purchased her own place and got the assistance of a moving company.

 Jami Gertz

If you were born in the 80s, well, Jami Gertz will be someone you might be familiar with. Being one of the biggest names during her time, she starred in various films such as  Crossroads, The Lost Boys, Less Than Zero, and Quicksilver. These films are only some of her previous projects.

For more than 3 decades now, Jami Gertz has been living happily with her husband Antony Ressler. Since their marriage in 1989, they’ve been finding ways to help make the world a better place to live in. The couple donates often to various charity organizations, an amount close to $10 million. Together, the couple has three children. Oliver being the eldest, Simon in the middle, and Theo is the youngest. The Lost Boys star and her philanthropist-by-heart husband Ressler, along with their three sons, continue to make investments for charity projects and organizations. As of 2020, Antony Ressler has earned a net worth of $4 billion.

Holly Valance

Actress Holly Valence swooned the hearts of many as she was able to gather a huge fanbase at the start of her career. Aside from being an actress, she also does very well in terms of modeling and singing as well. With the vast amount of talent she has, she quickly rose to fame.

To be proposed to at the beach with the words “Will You Marry Me” written in the fire would have been quite the romantic gesture, but to have it happen in the Maldives? Must be many a woman’s dreams! Nick Candy proposed to Holly Valance in 2012 and he definitely deserves credit for knowing how to make his girlfriend happy. Ever since they’ve been happily married, eventually becoming a family with two daughters: Luka Violet Toni and Nova Skye Coco. The couple also makes an effort to share their fortune by participating in charity projects. Nick Candy’s current net worth is $1.1 billion.

Stephanie Seymour

Before we talk about Stephanie Seymour’s current relationship, let us mention her past one. The actress was once married to Guns and Roses frontman, Axl Rose. However, like most celebrity relationships, their union didn’t really work out. Love is always worth another try. With that being said, she is definitely one of those who gave it another shot.

It seems that she gave her ‘another shot’ another shot. Seymour and Peter Brant thought they were ready to part ways but had a change of heart during the trial. Imagine this scene: husband and wife announcing to everyone that they were taking back every terrible allegation they have thrown at each other and were reconciling. Crazier than fiction, right? Since then, Brant and Seymour have continued to live happily with their two sons and one daughter: Harry, Peter Jr., and Lily Margaret. To their credit, thinking about their kids is probably one of the reasons why they stayed together. Not fame or wealth, although Peter Brant does keep his family comfortable with his net worth of $800 million.

Jane Fonda

Still being one of the most poised actresses despite the years, Jane Fonda is definitely someone to look up to in the industry. Having a good track record in terms of her achievements, it seems like the big screen isn’t her only forte.

From 1991 to 2001, Fonda was married to Ted Turner, who is the founder of CNN and has a net worth of $2.2 billion. They began their marriage like lovesick teenagers and never wanted to be away from each other for too long. Unfortunately, the “flooring” of their relationship started to crumble as the years went by. Communicating with each other slowly became difficult for them to do. In time, this eventually led to both of them choosing to separate. Although all’s well that ends well for both, Fonda’s adopted daughter Mary Williams did write about how the experience affected her in a book titled The Lost Daughter.

Princess Charlene of Monaco

Princess of Monaco Charlene Wittstock managed to make headlines not only through sports – as she was also hailed as a princess as well. Though she was born in Bulawayo, Rhodesia, her family eventually moved to South Africa during her younger years.

Before becoming a princess, Wittstock was an Olympic swimmer for South Africa. If you are curious how she became royalty, her road to obtaining that title started in 2000 when she and Prince Albert II first met during a sports event. Since then, the Prince and the Princess have been married for more than 10 years and are happily raising their twins, Jacques and Gabriella. The children were born in 2014. With such precious gifts to take care of, we won’t be too surprised if the couple takes extra measures to ensure their safety. This includes getting a top-notch home security system, which should be easy to do thanks to Prince Albert II’s net worth of $1 billion.

Heather Mills

Heather Mills may have earned a name for herself through her modeling career, but she does seem to have a lot more to offer. Who would have thought that she’s still slaying the runway on a prosthetic leg? Her car accident in the past didn’t slow her down in terms of her career.

In 1999, Heather Mills met Paul McCartney at an awards ceremony. Since then, the two were inseparable. Did you know that he even wrote her a love song? We think this is the grandest of all romantic gestures—especially coming from Paul McCartney.  He proposed to Mills in July of 2001 during her birthday and their intimate wedding ceremony was held the following year. The ceremony took place in County Monaghan, Ireland. The following year, they had a daughter named Beatrice. Unfortunately, the couple separated ways in 2006 with Mills receiving quite a sum of McCartney’s $1.3 billion net worth.

Talulah Riley

English Talulah Riley worked her way up into the limelight by working on different projects.  Some of the projects she worked in are Pride & Prejudice, St Trinian’s, The Boat That Rocked, St Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold, and Inception.

Talulah Riley first met tech mogul Elon Musk in 2008. He was already significantly wealthy back then, but certainly, nothing compared to his current net worth of $1.7 billion. The two would later develop a relationship and exchanged vows in 2010. It eventually became clear for both of them that their relationship was built on top of unsteady flooring, however. They tried to separate twice, the first time in 2012 and the second time in 2014. While they are now on different paths, it is reported that they are still on good terms with each other and wish for nothing but the best in each other’s lives.

Alvaro de Miranda Neto

Álvaro de Miranda Neto is quite prominent in the world of sports — he’s continually won awards in the Olympics. He may be very good at one thing, but he also does very well in terms of touring the globe. His name in sports is a huge, but sometimes, one can’t have the best of both worlds.

After many years of being acquainted with each other, the two showjumpers Alvaro de Miranda Neto and Athina Onassis decided to get married in 2005. Their marriage was been beautiful in the beginning, with both living a comfortable life thanks to both of their assets. Athina Onassis, alone, is worth $1.5 billion as of this year. Later on, however, things soured for the couple and they decided to part ways—settling the matter in court with a lawyer representing each. The process was not easy, we’re certain, but they eventually reached a settlement that favored both of their requests.

Anne Wojcicki

Thriving in the tech industry, Anne Wojcicki does have a lot to offer.  In May 2007, Anne Wojcicki and Sergey Brin became one of Silicon Valley’s most influential married couples. The 23andMe founder Wojcicki and Google co-founder Brin have two children together. Their daughter, Chloe Wojin, and son, Beji Wojin. By 2013, their relationship started to crumble as Wojcicki. The two eventually decided to live separately before deciding on parting ways.

Despite this, there’s no doubt that their children will be well taken care of. These kids will never have to worry about student loans in the future! Aside from their mother’s personal assets, their father also has a net worth of $52.5 billion. Aside from having a huge net worth, she was also listed in Forbes’ World’s 100 Most Powerful Women, where she was #93 on the list. Seem like Girl Power runs in the family, as her sister Susan Wojcicki is the CEO of YouTube. While Janet Wojcicki is a Ph.D. anthropologist and epidemiologist.

Jerry Hall

American Model and Actress, Jerry Hall, started her career back in the ’80s. Aside from modeling, she also worked on film projects such as Tim Burton’s Batman and Urban Cowboy. She eventually tied the knot with Mick Jagger, but their relationship didn’t work.

Things may have been rough, but she did give love another try. When it comes to marriage, especially high profile ones, there will always be people who will talk. The naysayers and rumor mongers can make or break a blossoming relationship. Fortunately for model Jerry Hall and global billionaire Rupert Murdoch, they were much stronger than all the gossip. They openly showed their affection and love for each other in public showing how much they love and care for each other. The 25-year age gap didn’t even seem to exist between the two of them! To their credit, they chose to enjoy life and are happier for it. We’re sure their children and friends are all rooting for this amazing couple!

Andrea Casiraghi

Andrea Casiraghi’s relationship with Tatiana Santo Domingo started in 2005. In 2012, Princess Caroline, his mother, announced the couple’s engagement to the public. They were often spotted celebrating many occasions together, including Prince Albert II and Charlene Wittstock’s wedding. The couple now has a happy family with three children, Alexandre Andrea Stefano the eldest and the first son, their first daughter India, and Max Rainier the youngest of the three.

Like his uncle’s family, the couple also ensures their children’s safety by making investments in proper security. With Tatiana Casiraghi’s net worth of $1.3 billion, doing so would be easy to accomplish. For sure, the couple has already covered the basics for the future of their children. They are certainly also showered with everything that they could ever ask for. They would be able to join the entertainment world without a worry if they wanted to follow in their father’s footsteps as well. It’s the best of both worlds for them.

Kate Capshaw

Landing a role in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was such a fortunate experience for actress Kate Capshaw because of two things: it was a blockbuster and being in the film allowed her to meet her soulmate. Who you might ask? Not the lead actor, but the film’s director, Steven Spielberg. This might seem like your typical Hollywood romance, but contrary to the stereotype, these two have withstood the test of time.

We have to give them credit for their three decades of togetherness. That’s something that not even Steven Spielberg’s net worth of $3.7 billion can buy. Decades of being together in the jungle that is Hollywood is something that is definitely impressive, because not a lot of couples can stay together while they are public figures. Capshaw and Spielberg obviously have something special. We’re happy that they found, support, and comfort in each other as they both embarked on their separate careers.

Melanie Craft

After dating for eight years, Melanie Craft and Larry Ellison got married in December 2003 at his Woodside Estate. Craft always wanted to be a writer, but her relationship with Ellison led to her put this passion for writing on hold. The couple decided to part ways in 2010, but Craft did not leave their home and marriage empty-handed. She received a number of properties from Ellison, including mansions, cars, and yachts, as well as alimony.

Since then, she has authored and published three books to her credit. Meanwhile, Larry Ellison continues to add to his net worth of $70 billion. The marriage that they had might not have been the best for both of them but they both grew from the relationship. Rather than just Ellison doing all the work, Craft was able to really pursue her passion and gain a lot when they split. We hope they’re both doing better today.

Diane von Furstenberg

Before the couple got married in 2001, dress designer Diane von Furstenberg and Barry Diller had a rocky relationship. There were even reports of her leaving him for another man at certain points. Despite this, Diller was always there for her and this helped create a sturdier flooring for their future together. Throughout their relationship, the two have been known to go out of their way to give each other presents.

Including the 26 diamond wedding bands, Diller gave her on their wedding day to symbolize the 26 years they weren’t married. An easy purchase considering Diller has a net worth of $4.2 Billion. Despite all the rumors going around about them — considering the pair is a very famous one — they both still found ways to make their personal lives better and their relationship with each other stronger. Behind the lavish gift-giving, the couple’s efforts in maintaining their relationship with each other shines through.

Amanda Coetzer

Amanda Coetzer is a former tennis player who played the sport for 16 years – from 1988 to 2004 – before putting down the racket to pursue other things in life. Eventually, she met and married Arnon Milchan, founder of New Regency Productions. The couple has four children, including the two that Milchan had from his previous partners.

Among these children is Alexandra Milchan who, just like her father, went on to become a film producer. Some of the movies she has to her credit include Street Kings and The Silence. With his film production business, Arnon Milchan has earned a net worth of $4.1 billion. Now that the two are married, some of his assets have surely been shared with Coetzer, making her richer than she was as an athlete. She must really live big along with her family. Her children might even follow in her footsteps and become professional tennis players as well.

Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry met back in 2016. Romantics would say that the two were in the right place at the right time. She was in Toronto, where Suits was being filmed, while Prince Harry was in the city to launch the 2017 Invictus Games. A mutual friend of theirs, the fashion designer Misha Nonoo, introduced the former Deal or No Deal model to meet with the Prince. This encounter between the two became the very gas that helped set their love ablaze.

They got married in 2018 and had their son Archie in 2019. Though no longer an official royal, Prince Harry’s net worth is at $50 million. Of course, even if he and Markle made the decision to leave the royal family, he is still known to the world as the former prince. Their cultural differences might have had influenced each other in their relationship hence the big news. Even then, they still have a high profile life despite that they are now away from their former duties.

Jessica Chastain

Before Jessica Chastain and Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo got married in 2017, the two had been in a relationship for five years. With a bond as loving and pure as theirs, it is almost a guarantee that they will go a long way together. The Passi de Preposulo might seem unique, but it comes with a strong history dating back to 1973.

Passi de Preposulo is an Italian noble family and they originated from Bergamo in Lombardy. “Passi” is derived from the local word “pas”, which means peace. This couple can afford all the peace and quiet they need given Gian Luca’s net worth is $10 Million. They can even venture out into the coolest and the most luxurious secluded spots in the world. They won’t ever have to think about how much money they need to spend as long as they are having the time of their lives.

Kaley Cuoco

Before meeting her current equestrian husband, Kaley thought she would never find love again. This isn’t uncommon for women who have gone through a separation. When Karl Cook came into her life, however, it helped rekindle the flame in her heart. The two have plenty of things in common, including being horse lovers. He married an actress, but Cook has an established career of his own.

He has four Grand Prix honors to his credit, after all. He finally proposed to her in 2017 and the two have been enjoying married life since. With all the comfort provided by Cuoco’s assets and Cook’s net worth of $120 million, the pair have been living a dreamy life together. They should both really enjoy riding together as the sport must really fuel their love for each other. Making a regular habit out of spending quality time with each other through a shared interest is good for any relationship.

Serena Williams

The story of how the tennis player Serena Williams met her now-husband Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit, might sound like a romantic-comedy that came to life. The two first met at a hotel in Italy in 2015, not knowing what the other’s profession was at the time. What started as small talk, became the start of their relationship. After a year and a half, Ohanian invited Williams to go to Italy with him. There, he proposed to her at the very hotel where they first met.

Williams has quite a fortune to her credit, but so does Ohanian who has a net worth of $10 million. Both are very successful in their individual fields, and they are really a great pair because they can build each other up and support each other when they need it the most. They seem to also share their assets and have all the lavish things life has to offer.

Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon met her now-husband at a party in 2010, where a drunk man started making unwanted advances towards her. Luckily, Jim Toth came to her aid and also apologized to the actress for his friend’s inappropriate behavior. After a year of dating, the two got married. They have one son, Tennessee James, who was raised alongside Reese’s two older kids, Ava and Deacon.

At present, both have stable careers and often give others credit when it comes to raising their children. With Toth’s net worth at $5 million, they wouldn’t have to worry about student loans in the future. Their children would also have a bright path ahead of them. Both being active in their own careers, the pair must really enjoy their quality time together and have a great family life as well. There has been nothing but good coming from their home, so they really are an inspiring clan.

George Clooney

“Where do I want to meet the love of my life?” For George Clooney, he certainly wasn’t expecting it’d be so close to home—his living room, in fact. This is where he met human rights attorney, Amal Alamuddin. The two met through a mutual friend and their initial meeting ended with the two of them exchanging email addresses to stay in touch. As they communicated more, their relationship started to blossom.

By 2014, the pair got married. In 2017, Alamuddin gave birth to twins, Ella and Alexander. She may not appear in films like Clooney does, but Alamuddin’s net worth of $20 million doesn’t fall far behind. Though the two come from very different worlds, they have managed to find something in each other that made them both happy. Their differences most probably complement each other as they always look very blissful whenever cameras catch a glimpse of them.

Eve

How do you know that you have found the right one? For rapper and actress Eve, it was the moment when British entrepreneur Maximillion Cooper saw her while she was getting her hair done. Eve considers this a “vulnerable state” and she wasn’t too pleased. However, the gentlemanly Cooper assured Eve that no matter what hairstyle she wears – even if it was her natural hairdo – he would still love her.

All credit goes to him because this honesty became the fuel for their relationship. In 2014, the two finally tied the knot and became husband and wife. Maximillion Cooper’s net worth might be $55 million, but it’s his heart of gold that’s most precious. He must have really won her over not only through his charm but also through his chivalrous ways. He respects her and all that she is, so we think they they are really meant to be.

Kym Johnson

When the ballroom dancer Kym Johnson and self-made millionaire Robert Herjavec competed in a dancing competition, they won something more valuable than a trophy: each other. Known for his lucrative investments and co-hosting for the show Shark Tank, Herjavec went and showed off his dancing chops on Dancing with the Stars back in 2015. It was this that led to the chance encounter between him and Kym Johnson during the rehearsals.

By 2016, the two made it official and got married. Together, they are parents to Haven Mae and Hudson Robert. With Robert Herjavec’s net worth of $200 million, we’re sure this family is well taken care of. They must have all their basic needs covered, and have a lot of extras on top. Their future must also be very bright given that whatever they might want will be easy for them to acquire. It must be a great experience being in their well-to-do and talented family!

Cindy Crawford

From best friends to lovers—this is how it began for supermodel Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber. Since the two of them met in 1998, they have stayed together for over two decades. When asked about the secret to maintaining stability in their relationship, both credit their bond as friends, which they shared since the day they first met. Many years have passed, but they only seem to be getting stronger and stronger.

They have two children together, Presley and Kaia. Rande Gerber’s net worth is $350 million, but he won’t have to worry about his kids since they also earn plenty on their own. Just like their parents, they made sure that they would be financially stable and independent as well. They have their own personal ventures and their parents are always there to support them when they need it. They can even ask for their parents’ help should the need to do so arises.

George Lucas

George Lucas is the creative genius behind the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises. But filmmaking isn’t his only love. He met his soulmate in Mellody Hobson, who is just as prolific as Lucas. She started out as an intern in Ariel Investments and worked her way up. She is the former chairwoman of Dreamworks. They began dating in 2006 and credit their open-minded way of living for strengthening their bond.

In 2013, they got married and eventually started a family of their own. Not too long after, they welcomed their daughter, Everest Hobson. Lucas is one of the world’s richest men, but Hobson’s net worth of $10 million isn’t too shabby in comparison! With the two of them working together, they will definitely not only make a great team but will also be very productive and efficient when it comes to generating income. Lucky for their children, they might not have to work a single day in their lives!

You’ve Reached The End
