Natalia Potanina was married to Russian gazillionaire Vladimir Potanin for 30 years before then divorced in 2014. The divorce saw Natalia get properties (really, really nice properties) in New York, London and Moscow. And about $3 million a year to satisfy her whims. But that’s vodka money compared to the life style Natalia Potanina is accustomed to. After all, Vladimir Potanin is worth more than $15 billion.
Natalia is in the news because she believes Potanin’s real wealth was concealed from her during the divorce proceedings, and that she’s entitled to far more than she received. Perhaps Natalia is also mad that — so cliche, Vlad! — her ex married a much younger second wife, the professional dancer Ekaterina.
