Abramovich, the name instantly conjures up the image of a 55-year-old Russian oligarch and one of the richest men in the world. Roman Abramovich has endless wealth with his net worth of $7.9 billion. However, some treasures in his life are unrelated to his wealth, even though they use a lot of it. Sofia Abramovich is one of those gems of the clan who adds adorableness to the rich and subtracts snobbery from status.
The billion-dollar daddy’s girl showed a strong character that replaces the blatant boasting of wealth with heart. She may be a real princess, but we understand she’s more than that. She’s an animal lover, traveler, and down-to-earth with billions in the bank. Read more about Sofia Ambramovich, 27, below:
Sofia was born in Russia and moved to England in 2003 with her parents and older siblings, Anna and Arkadiy. The third daughter of businessman, investor, politician and Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich has six siblings from her father’s various marriages. Sofia is incredibly close to her mother, Irina, Roman’s second wife. The former flight attendant was married to Roman Abramovich for nearly 16 years.
Sofia has four siblings Anna, 30, Arkadiy, 28, Arina, 21, and Ilya, 19. The Russian citizen was born with a golden spoon and has lived a life of luxury since her first cry. Along with her siblings, Sofia attended the $31,000-a-year private Godolphin and Latymer School in West London.
Being the children of the richest man in Israel and among the wealthiest Russians, the Abramovich children lived in safety. It wasn’t a casual walk to school with buddies. Sofia and her siblings took a helicopter flight to a Battersea heliport, where a chauffeured car was waiting for them. A group of bodyguards kept him company on the eight-kilometre journey to school.
Sofia’s mother confirmed in a very rare interview: “My life with Roman was not the fairy tale reported by the newspapers. For my safety and that of our children, he hired a group of bodyguards from a protection agency. We changed our cell phone numbers once a week so no one could track our whereabouts.
She continued: “We were afraid of kidnapping attempts, but we couldn’t hide our children and not show them the real life. So we went to theaters and museums with a host of bodyguards. Every year it got harder.
Those early years of Sofia’s life gave us a dekko in the flip side of being incredibly rich. That ride home with your crush is starting to sound really priceless now, isn’t it? After Sofia’s high-profile divorce in 2007 (a high-profile $300 million settlement), she shuttled back and forth between London and the family’s 425-acre Fyning Hill estate in Petersfield, West Sussex, given to Irina in the as part of her divorce settlement. Sofia completed a business management course at Royal Holloway in Egham, Surrey. Some things stay the same, like chauffeured bulletproof Range Rovers.
Living large in London:
The billionaire oligarch’s daughter shuttles between two mansions, one in London and a 425-acre, $24million estate in West Sussex. Although her UK visa status is unknown, she has lived and thrived in London since 2003. The Swinging City is a regular feature on her Instagram feed.
Sofia also posted glamorous photos of herself with friends on Instagram as they enjoyed the Summer Ball at Royal Holloway University in London.
This marked the end of his degree in management and marketing at the prestigious university. Sofia also shares jaw-dropping photos from her stunning home in West Sussex, making her the most interesting personality of the Russian billionaire’s generation.
The equestrian horses of Sofia, the refuge of Sofia:
Living life under constant surveillance is not easy. Especially when you’re not exactly a celebrity, you still have to bear the burden because you come from a well-known family. Sofia found solace in her horses and dogs.
The equestrian’s idea of paradise is to ride his horses. Sofia regularly posts photos on social media posing with her horses in her own stables. This business graduate really enjoys spending time with her horses by riding, posing and cuddling the beautiful beasts. Over time, she became an avid jumper who took her love of horses beyond her stables.
Sofia has also raced for Russia at the Longines Global Champions Tour and Monaco events. Her nearly 70,000 followers are familiar with her horses Dora, Billy Fraulein, Bugsy, Percy, Princess Dora, Zara, Zanzibar and the adorable pony Merlin, to name a few.
Sofia loves her pet dogs just as much and also posts several heartwarming photos with her dog Zeke.
Lots of parties:
What’s the best part of being incredibly successful? Parties! Sofia may not brag about her affluent life on social media, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have her share of the fun. For her 18th birthday, the milestone was celebrated lavishly – a $40,000 extravaganza fit for an heiress.
The party included chartering the entire ‘Under The Bridge’ nightclub, inviting no less than 500 friends and partying the night away to the tunes of Scouting For Girls and McBusted. Big parties have been a constant in Sofia’s life.
From his own parties to his father’s legendary New Year’s Eve extravaganzas on the superyacht Eclipse, the fun never ends for the incredibly wealthy. For New Years 2016, Sofia, her mother and younger siblings opted for some more serene time at their usual haunt, the One&Only Reethi Rah luxury resort in the Maldives. For those unaware, the resort is the zenith of tropical luxury that would have easily cost them at least $261,000.
Dealing with body image issues:
Sofia, the ambassador of Just World International, which tackles child poverty, is a woman of substance who has faced her share of challenges. Her body image issues were never hidden, Sofia addressed them openly.
She never watered down her reality, whether it was talking about body positivity or willingly sharing her own journey.
Sofia once shared, “It wasn’t until recently that I realized that everyone has a different perfect. I may never have been perfect in other people’s eyes or even in my own, but I have decided to be happy and positive.A friend recently told me that being healthy and dieting isn’t about losing weight, living longer and looking better…it’s about letting go. your body (and your mind) to be happy now and give it a chance to explain what it needs (thanks @howtogreen).’
This sweet 27-year-old daughter of Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich has been through the best things money can buy. Whether it’s flying to the family home in Antibes (by private jet, of course), drinking the finest champagne, or spending $250,000 on New Years vacations with his famous friends, the Beckhams, a good time has never escaped Sofia Abramovich.
Her social media account showcases her love of horses, champagne and exotic vacations.
Speaking of exotic vacations, Sofia has already enjoyed multiple locations, from tropical to temperate, more than the average Joe in her lifetime. Add the luxurious and biggest superyachts of his billionaire dad; you naturally adopt a jet-set and sailor lifestyle. Sofia does everything from posing on lavish yachts to exploring nature’s hidden gems in new places.
The young business graduate has regularly stayed in St Barths, Ibiza and Tokyo. On more than one occasion, the heiress has been spotted at the fashion and haute couture hub, Rodeo Drive, Paris, and the favorite family destination, the Maldives.
Will Sofia Abramovich become the next Ivanka Trump?
Although not a regular fixture on the London social scene, Sofia’s social life is threatened by the ongoing storyline and her father’s role in it. Daily Mail has described Sofia as one of London’s most eligible blondes, aka Britain’s richest teenager. His word cannot be ignored but could his presence be due to his father’s ties to Putin? Sofia took to Instagram to share her anti-war sentiment. His message read: “The biggest and most successful Kremlin propaganda lie is that most Russians support Putin.” She also shared an image of Putin with a red line across him.
Will the sanctions against Roman Abramovich and the restrictions affect his seven rich children? Whether that brings Sofia the same fate as Ivana Trump, who was coldly received by New York elites after her father was elected, is something time will tell.
