Bernie Ecclestone's ex wife Slavica buys £36.5m jet

Wednesday July 22, 2009

There's been no confirmation of any divorce settlement between Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone and his former wife Slavica. However a British newspaper reports the former Armani model has made her first post-divorce purchase – a £36.5 million private plane.

The top-of-the-range Gulfstream G550 jet has every conceivable luxury and is able to fly from London to Singapore without refueling, reports the Daily Mail.

"It has two bathrooms and two bedrooms," says a friend. "She is always travelling to faraway places like India, Morocco and South America, and she supports an orphanage in Brazil."

In March the Croatia-born brunette was given a 'quickie divorce' and granted a decree nisi in just 58 seconds on the grounds that the marriage had "irretrievably" broken down due to the 78-year-old's "unreasonable behaviour".

Legal experts say she is entitled to £1 billion of Bernie's £2.4 billion fortune.
