Dasha Zhukova whose full name is Darya "Dasha" Alexandrovna Zhukova is a Russian-American businesswoman, philanthropist, art collector and magazine editor who is better known as the ex-wife of the business tycoon Roman Abramovich.
Zhukova was born on the 8th of June 1981 in Moscow, Russia and is the mother of Abramovich's two kids. Here are some interesting facts about her that you might want to know:
What's her Net Worth?
Dasha Zhukova holds an estimated net worth of $100 million for which her four properties given by her ex-hubby, Roman (who is worth $15.1 billion) play the major role. She has amassed the rest of her net worth from her career as a businesswoman and owner of a magazine company.
Ex-wife of Roman Abramovich
The 38 years old businesswoman is the former wife of the Israeli-Russian business giant Roman Abramovich. She met him in 2005 when she was 24 years old and he was married to his second ex-wife Irina Malandina.
The two grew close real quick and she married him in 2008 not so long after Roman's second divorce was settled. They shared two children from their marriage.
The couple thought their decision was wrong and so they decided to split which they did in 2017. Despite their divorce, they promised to remain close friends and come together as parents when it comes to rearing and taking care of their two kids.
Dasha Zhukova and Roman Abramovich also continued working together in projects they developed together. Their relationship is something that most of the couple should learn from who separate these days and cut off every relation.
Ex-Boyfriend Marat Safin
At the time when the beautiful philanthropist first met the oil magnate, she was dating her fellow boyfriend Marat Safin who is a retired tennis player and a Russian politician. When she started getting closer with Abramovich, the couple broke off and parted their ways which allowed her to marry her then hubby.
As we mentioned earlier, Zhukova is the mother of the two youngest kids of Roman that they had from their relationship of 9 years. Her children include a 9 years son Aaron Alexandar Abramovich and a five years daughter Leah Lou Abramovich. She lives with her kids currently and her former partner and a close friend keeps visiting them in a regular interval.
As of 2019, the mother of two is engaged to Stavros Niarchos III who is a Greek billionaire and shipping tycoon.
Dasha is planning her fiance later this year who is 5 years older than her. She often uploads picture with him on her Instagram where they both are seen sharing moments together. Hope this relationship of the art collector doesn't end up like her previous one.
New York City Mega-mansion given by Ex-husband
You'd be surprised to know that Dasha has been gifted four lavish mansions by her former husband. The expensive properties are located in New York at 9, 11, 13, and 15 East 75th Street which Roman transferred to her for a total of $90.5 million. Wow, that is some crazy expensive assets that she got from her ex-husband.
It is also said that the billionaire had already spent over $100 million in renovating and buying those properties. The Magazine collector is surely living a lavish life in those houses.

The museum is located in Moscow and is the home to Russian contemporary art and permanent collections. It focuses more on the modern and contemporary art from 1950s onwards.
