George Soros Announces Engagement to Girlfriend 40 Years His Junior

Billionaire investor and political activist George Soros announced his engagement to girlfriend Tamiko Bolton over the weekend, Reuters reported.

The festive occasion will mark George Soros' third wedding and Bolton's second.

The Guardian has more information:

Billionaire investor George Soros had a lot to celebrate on Saturday evening: his 82nd birthday and the engagement to his much younger girlfriend Tamiko Bolton.

Soros and Bolton, who met in the spring of 2008, formally announced their engagement at a party at Soros' summer home in Southampton, New York, attended by a small group of friends and relatives, according to a person familiar with the trader.

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.

Last year, Soros' ex-girlfriend Adriana Ferreyr sued the billionaire investor for $50 million after he supposedly reneged on his promise to buy her an apartment, Reuters reminds.

The Brazilian actress' lawsuit also contained claims of emotional torture, harassment and violence, though Soros denied the allegations.

Adriana Ferreyr did not comment on the news of Soros' impending nuptials, but her lawyer remarked: "I wish him the best of luck on his marriage, and now that he doesn't need the apartment, hopefully the case can be resolved."

The Guardian continues:

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.

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.

The couple told friends the wedding will place sometime next summer.
