Meet Slavica Ecclestone, a former Croatian model who is the wife of Formula 1 racing CEO Bernie Ecclestone. See photos and a biography of Slavica here.
Slavica has moved out of her husband’s home to a flat overlooking Thames owned by their daughter Petra and the couple is now heading for a divorce. They have been married for almost 24 years.
‘I don’t want to say anything. You can talk to my husband.’
The divorce case has become a big topic of gossip these days in Britain becasue of the financial issues involved. The couple are reportedly worth over $4 billion and we can be sure Slavica will be taking quite a lot of it with her, since most of it is in her name due to tax issues.
‘Nearly everything is in her name. She is non-domiciled in Britain and therefore it made sense for tax reasons.’
As a biography, Slavica Ecclestone was born in 1958 in Gorani Konjic district, Croatia so her age is 50. She started modeling in the late 70s and did shoots for Start magazine and photographer Ivan Balić. Her modeling career was at peak when she became the face of Armani.
Slavica met Bernie in a promotional event during the Italian Grand Prix in 1983. Bernie fell for her very loyally despite their age and height differences. She is now the major stakeholder in a Jersey company SLEC which owns much of the F1 property worldwide. The couple have two daughters, Tamara and Petra.
