NEW YORK: George Soros, the 83-year-old billionaire investor, philanthropist and active supporter of liberal political causes, married health care and education consultant Tamiko Bolton yesterday afternoon.
Soros and Bolton, 42, exchanged vows in a small ceremony at his Bedford, New York, estate, which Soros bought in 2003 from Jurassic Park author Michael Crichton. Federal judge Kimba Wood officiated at the non-denominational wedding, which was attended by members of the couple’s families, including the groom’s five children, a source familiar with the wedding told Reuters yesterday.
For Soros, whose net worth is $20bn according to Forbes, this will be his third marriage. It is Bolton’s second.
Soros put a Graff wedding band on Bolton’s finger during the half-hour ceremony, according to the source. The exchange of vows that was to be followed by a reception, began at 4.30pm, and was attended by more than 500 guests.
