The 2 proceeded to journey the world collectively, having fun with Doris’ wealth. They hung out in Russia, went to Romania for “fountain of youth” remedies, shopped for a $25 million Boeing 737, and adopted two camels after Doris realized they had been an endangered species. Chandi managed Doris’s workers and suggested her on monetary issues. They had been inseparable and traveled between Doris’s enormous New Jersey farm, her Newport, Rhode Island property, and “Shangri-La,” her palatial property on Oahu, Hawaii.

This is the place it will get bizarre:

As soon as Chandi was adopted she took management of Duke’s life – operating her households, advising her on funds, and touring together with her everywhere in the 12 months. Duke purchased Chandi a horse farm on the large island of Hawaii that she lives on to this present day. After which, in 1991, Duke reduce Chandi off. The explanations for this are unknown to this present day. However, Duke had reportedly promised to care for Chandi for the remainder of her life.

Doris Duke died in 1993.

In response to the phrases of her will, the overwhelming majority of Doris’ fortune went to charity. At the moment the Doris Duke Charitable Basis controls property value roughly $2 billion in property. The Basis has already given away $1.84 billion in its roughly 30 years of existence.

Chandi was left $0.

Chandi sued Duke’s property. Extremely, she was awarded a $65 million settlement. That is the identical as round $125 million in immediately’s {dollars}.

At the moment, Chandi lives on a palatial farm in Hawaii. She takes in rescued horses, donkeys, pigs, birds, and different animals.

And he or she’ll quickly be associated to David and Victoria Beckham by marriage! What an attention-grabbing life…
