F1's Bernie Ecclestone splashes the cash for his ladies
According to a recent report, Bernie Ecclestone paid a total of £101 million (US$ 161.4 million) to acquire two of Londoon's most expensive properties for his daughters Tamara and Petra.
Ecclestone's daughter Petra received a £56 million, grade two listed, eight-bedroom house in Chelsea, named Sloane House. Whilst Ecclestone's other daughter Tamara received a £45 million ($US 72 million) house in Kensington Palace Gardens.
Ecclestone is quoted by U.K. paper The Sunday Times saying; "I'm very proud of them. They're good girls. They're not stupid when it comes to money. They are very level headed and that's something I and their mother insisted on. At Christmas we bought them things we thought they needed and would use."
"They've both got boyfriends, they travel, and renovating a property will be good work for Tamara. There won't be a housewarming party for a while because there's a lot of work to do, but that's good. It will keep her busy and it will be a good project for her to learn from. I think they will even be able to make a healthy profit when they come to sell," he added.
Ecclestone, whose divorce settlement with ex-wife Slavica in 2009 cost him a reported £1 billion (US$1.6 billion), was also asked whether he would be retiring as Formula One CEO at any time soon.
"I'm not taking it easy. I can't afford to take it easy. It's business as usual," he said.
Perhaps the comments are justified if his recent presents to his daughters are anything to go by.
