Yesterday, Petra Ecclestone bought the most expensive home in America, which was listed at $150 million. But that’s only a piece of the fabulous life of this billionaire heiress.
The 22-year-old, five-foot-eight blonde beauty was born to Bernie Ecclestone, CEO of Formula One (the an elite car racing league in the UK, like NASCAR in the U.S.). Bernie is said to have a net worth of $4.2 billion.
Lucky for Petra and her sister Tamara, most of their father’s fortune is sitting in trust funds for them.
While she may have everything anyone could want, Petra doesn’t just lounge around and spend her father’s money. She’s also an entrepreneur.
Her parents are Formula One CEO Bernie Ecclestone and former Armani model Slavica, who recently divorced
The gorgeous girls grew up in London, but spent much of the childhood jetting around the world (Petra thought all the kids at school did this)
While they were in London, the sisters attended the exclusive all-girls Francis Holland School (tuition is currently around $21,000 per year)
She has a $91 million house in Chelsea, England. She needed a place with a big yard for her five dogs
Parked outside the home are a bright red Ferrari and a Mercedes G Wagon (the first right-hand driving one ever made)
She's engaged to James Stunt, a London businessman who is known for dropping $8,000 partying in one night
And Bernie bought Petra a brand new, $1.3 million Bugatti Veyron as an engagement gift. We can't wait to see the wedding
Petra also has 10 Birkin bags, worth about $65,000 EACH... and this is just a tiny part of her endless wardrobe
She just bought the famous 57,000 square-foot Candy Spelling mansion, which was listed at $150 million
But Petra doesn't just spend money. She's planning to launch a line of hair care products, and a line of bags
- She doesn't like to party
- She works in the fashion industry (and she works just like everyone else, usually every day from 8:30 am - 6:00 pm)
- There's no known dirt against her (no sex tape, we mean)
So she's pretty much the exact opposite of Paris..
