Ecclestone ‘secretly marries’ Brazilian Fabiana Flosi
By Berthold Bouman
Reports have emerged FOM CEO Bernie Ecclestone has secretly married Fabiana Flosi at his ski chalet Le Lion in Gstaad, Switzerland. According to reports in the UK Daily Mail, Ecclestone’s daughters Petra (24) and Tamara (28), failed to attend the ceremony at the 23-million-pound chalet.
In May of this year Ecclestone already announced he would marry the third love of his life, Brazilian Miss Flosi, age 35 and 46 years his junior, the pair met through their work on the Brazilian Grand Prix where Miss Flosi is Formula One’s vice-president of marketing.
“We are officially engaged — and it is not going to be a long engagement either,” Ecclestone said at the time. “We are so happy and it’s just a case of when we get married, not if, though we haven’t fixed a time or place yet. We have been together for two years and what makes it work is that Fabiana has a really good sense of humour — and when you live with me you need to have a sense of humour!”
Ecclestone has previously been married to Slavica Radic, a former Armani model from Croatia, a marriage that lasted almost 25 years but came to an end in 2009. After the official divorce on March 11, 2009, which cost the now 81-year old Formula One boss an estimated one billion English pounds, Ecclestone vowed he would ‘remain single for the rest of life’, but now it seems he made the trip to the aisle for the third time.
