Third time lucky for Bernie?
ECCLESTONE WEDS AGAIN: F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone has married Fabiana Flosi even after claiming he'd "stay single for life" after his divorce from Slavica in 2009.
F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone, 81, has married Brazilian Fabiana Flosi, 35, at his ski chalet in Gstaad, Switzerland during the August race break.
She is his third wife.
British newspapers the Daily Mail and the Sun reported that F1's famous chief executive's bride worked on the marketing of the Brazilian GP.
The reports said Ecclestone's daughters Tamara, 28, and Petra, 24, and their mother, were in Los Angeles at the time. In May Tamara told The Mail on Sunday she had no plans to attend her father’s wedding out of loyalty to her mother.
Despite a 46-year age gap, Ecclestone and Flosi began dating in 2009 after the end of his 23-year marriage to former Armani model Slavica, the Mail said.
The wedding is the third trip down the aisle for the octogenarian, who vowed to "remain single for the rest of his life" after being forced to hand over an estimated £1-billion (an equivalent of R13-billion) of his £2.4-billion (R32-billion) fortune to Slavica in the divorce settlement.
