- She’s also an entrepreneur. She started an Internet vitamin/dietary supplement sales company and now runs a web-based yoga education business, DealBook reported.
- Bolton’s Upper East Side apartment was the centre of a bunch of drama last year between Soros and his ex-lover, Brazilian soap opera star Adriana Ferreyr, who sued the billionaire claiming he reneged on his promise to give her the apartment. Soros filed a motion to dismiss that lawsuit, according to Reuters.
- This will be Bolton’s second marriage.
