American businessman Ronald Perelman through his company, has invested various companies in grocery, cigar, licorice, makeup, car, photography, television, camping, security, lottery, jewelry, banks, and the American comic book industry. Mr. Perelman annually is one of the world's largest philanthropic donors. As of 2012, Perelman is the 26th richest American, and 69th richest person in the world, with an estimated wealth of $12 billion
A Superior Court judge in New Jersey rules that the 23-year-old Perelman no longer has to prove that her uncle, James Cohen of Cresskill, N.J., exerted undue influence on her grandfather to get him to change his will multiple times before he died last year. The onus is on Cohen to prove otherwise.
He has accumulated five marriages, eight children, a $12bn-$14bn fortune and countless legal bills from run-ins with family members, business associates and regulators. So it’s not a surprise that Ron Perelman collects restaurants, too. The pugnacious dealmaker has invested in establishments from Graydon Carter’s Monkey Bar in Midtown Manhattan to Harlem’s fashionable Red Rooster. He once fought to close the bistro Le Bilboquet because of “illegal” outdoor tables on his block, only to fund its move to a larger venue two streets away.
Five times married billionaire Revlon chairman Ronald Perelman will add to his already impressive brood after it was announced that he is to be a dad for the eight time.
