Golden heiress Athina Onassis finally managed to put an end to her marriage with Brazilian rider Alvaro de Miranda Neto known as Doda. The low-profile, ‘silent’ girl took a sound revenge: she pays her former husband for 11 years much less that he had asked. Athina Onassis proved in the court that he had a relationship with a Belgian model for 8.5 years.
After a year and a half years of lawsuits, injunctions, suits and claims of hundreds of millions of euros, the former spouses decided to get their divorce in consent.
According to Greek tabloid Espresso, the divorce was issued, with the two parts to have reached agreements on all issues and that all they wanted was to leave the difficult period behind and move on in their lives.
German lifestyle magazine Bunte.de reports that both were represented at the Belgian Court by their lawyers and called for a quick agreement.
His claim was based on the pre-marriage contract that should have granted him also 11 million euros in one-off payment as well the horses joint ventures.
At the very end, the Brazilian “beau” had to be satisfied with a much lower amount as ruled by the court. “Doda gets almost nothing,” Bunte reports.
The amount the ex husband is going home with has not been revealed so far.
The marriage solution came shortly after a good friend of the Onassis family, Alexis Manatheakis, revealed, that de Miranda was in parallel relation with a Belgian model in 8 out of the 11 years of marriage with Athena.
Speaking to Greek media on Friday, Mantheakis said that it was “a Belgian woman who worked as escort who approached him and handed him a file with all evidence she was in relationship with de Miranda.” The file contained bills incl accommodation in hotels, flights etc. he said.
32-year-old Athina Onassis is the only surviving descendant of Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, She is the sole heir of Aristotle’s daughter Christina Onassis, who had inherited 55% of his fortune, and died of pulmonary edema when Athena as just three years old.
Onassis married Brazilian Olympic showjumper Álvaro de Miranda Neto in 2005. She was a competitive show jumper, under the name Athina Onassis de Miranda, until she filed for divorce in 2016.
Her personal fortune is estimated $270 million.
