The Porsche billionaire is seeking a divorce from his wife because she has dementia
A billionaire has filed for divorce against his elderly wife, citing her dementia as the reason he wants to leave the marriage.
The executive of Porsche, Wolfgang Porsche has filed for divorce from Claudia Porsche, saying that the disease has led to changes in her personality.
Wolfgang and Claudia have been together since 2007 and married in 2019. The Porsche family's fortune is estimated at €20 billion (around £18 billion).
Klaudia has been living with her daughter for almost two years and has four caregivers who take care of her all the time.
She has not been able to move independently for months and her mental awareness has suffered a rapid decline, the family says.
The media in Germany report that Wolfgang has grown closer to his girlfriend, 59-year-old Gabriela Prinzessin zu Leiningen, in recent months.
