Russian billionaire's daughter buys Onassis island Skorpios

MOSCOW/ATHENS (Reuters) - The daughter of Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev has bought the Greek resort island where shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis famously married Jacqueline Kennedy in the 1960s, Rybolovlev's investment office said. The sale price was not disclosed. Greek media reports on Saturday placed the value of Skorpios island at over $100 million and said Ekaterina Rybolovleva, 24, wanted it not only for leisure but also business purposes.

Athina Onassis looking to lease home island: local official

The heiress of Greek tycoon Aristotle Onassis, Athina, is negotiating a lease of the Ionian Sea island of Skorpios that was one of her family's most prized assets, a local official said on Friday. "There are advanced talks that may have already produced a deal," Stathis Zavitsanos, the mayor of neighbouring island of Meganissi that administers Skorpios, told AFP. Contrary to rumours, the interested parties "are probably Russians, not Arabs," the mayor added.
