They were married for 23 years
Witschak married Soros in 1960. Soros was born to a non-observant Jewish family, and Witschak was non-Jewish.
Still, Soros's parents liked her as she had also experienced privation and displacement brought about by World War II.
However, the couple got divorced after 23 years of marriage. Witschak accused Soros of cheating on her.
She shares three kids with Soros
Witschak welcomed two sons, Robert Daniel and Jonathan Tivador, and a daughter, Andrea Soros Colombel, with Soros.
Their eldest son, Robert Daniel, is the founder of the Central European University based in Budapest, as well as a network of foundations in Eastern Europe.
Their second-born daughter Andrea is the founder and president of Trace Foundation, the foundation which was formed in 1993 to promote cultural continuity and sustainable development of Tibetan communities in China, while their youngest-born son Jonathan is a hedge fund manager and political donor.
Who is Soros currently married to?
Soros married for the second time to an American historian, Susan Weber, in 1983, the same year he got divorced from Witschak.
From their marriage union, they welcomed two sons, Alexander and Gregory James Soros. They got divorced in 2005.
Soros is currently married to his third wife, Tamiko Bolton, whom he met in 2008 and married in 2013.
Her son Jonathan was thought to be the heir to his father’s $25 billion empire, but his father chose his half-brother
Soros handed his $25 billion financial and charitable empire to his 37-year-old son Alexander "Alex" Soros, whom he shares with his second ex-wife Susan Weber.
Alexander was elected chairman of the charitable empire Society Foundations known as OSF, the foundation which distributes around $1.5 billion per year aiming at advancing human rights and democratic governments in December, although Soros had previously said that he did not want OSF to be handed over to any of his children.
Soros, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, said that Alexander, who is the second youngest child out of his five children, has earned it and also that they think alike.
According to the Journal, before Alex, Jonathan was believed to be Soros's successor for years, but Soros said he didn’t get on with Jonathan.
Upon his father’s decision, Jonathan told the Journal that he was disappointed but not regretful of the outcome.
He knew his father would change the decision, he said.
Alex, who took over his father’s $25 billion empire, was once famous for his flamboyant and playboy lifestyle.
Back in 2016, the Jewish publication Forward wrote he was shuttling models to and from his $85 million summer rental mansion in the Hamptons, and in 2021, it was reported that he left a $700 tip after purchasing a tequila from a bar-based in Brooklyn where he was spending a night with two different women.
After taking over the reins, Alex told the Journal that he is more political than his father and that he would campaign against Trump’s attempt to run for a second term as president.
Her exact net worth is currently under review. As of now, we have the net worth of her ex-husband, the father of her three children.
Wikipedia reported that her ex-husband had a net worth of $6.7 billion as of October 2023 after having donated more than $32 billion to the OSF.
Out of which $15 billion has already been distributed.
- She is 89 years old.
