About James Stunt
British businessman, James Stunt, is married to heiress Petra Ecclestone, the daughter of billionaire Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone. Stunt dated Petra for four years before they married on 27 August 2011 at Odescalchi Castle near Rome, Italy, at an event attended by royals, socialites and celebrities. The wedding reportedly cost £5 million and Petra’s Vera Wang dress £80,000.
Stunt and Petra signed a pre-nuptial agreement before their wedding. Petra is a billionaire’s daughter, but so is stunt who has insisted on having the ‘his and her’ pre-nuptial agreement drawn up. Stunt wants the marriage to start on an equal footing and he is keen for Petra to hold on to her assets – and him to his – should they ever separate.
Stunt, 28, has a fortune of his own to protect. An avid wine collector, he owns a collection of sports cars and recently bought Petra, 22, a pair of £80,000 earrings. They certainly have a formidable combined wealth. In June 2011, Petra bought America’s most expensive house. She and James plan to settle there once they are married. The pile, which has 123 rooms, was owned by the Spelling family and was on the market for £92million. Petra also owns a £52million Chelsea home. This is where it gets really scary, she is now threatening the world of ultra-rich socialite reality show stars. Petra now hopes to launch her own reality show, starting with plans to throw a huge celebrity bash at her new pad, to welcome herself to Hollywood.
James Stunt gave his wife, Petra, 22, the keys to the £260,000 Rolls Royce after their wedding in Italy.
