A Soros Wedding

Octogenarian left-wing billionaire engaged to forty-something video yoga instructor


Left-wing billionaire George Soros is engaged to be married to girlfriend Tamiko Bolton. This will be the third marriage for Soros, 82, and the second for Bolton, 40, reports the New York Times Dealbook:

Mr. Soros and his younger girlfriend, Tamiko Bolton, announced their engagement on Saturday night at his summer home in Southampton, N.Y., before a small group of friends that included his lawyer, Bill Zabel, and the Blackstone Group‘s Byron Wien.

It will be the third trip down the aisle for Mr. Soros, 82, who has five children from his two previous marriages. One of the world’s most famous hedge fund managers, who cemented his reputation with a trade that broke the Bank of England, he has become known primarily for his public pronouncements and charitable donations to liberal causes.

Bolton is a health care and education consultant, and the founder of an online yoga education company.

In February, Soros denied choking a 28-year-old ex-girlfriend, Brazilian soap star Adriana Ferreyr. Ferreyr is currently suing Soros for "emotional distress."
