Billionaire shipping heiress Athina Onassis is set to move to Wellington and compete in the next equestrian season, sources tell Gossip Extra.
Onassis, 27, is the granddaughter of Greek tycoon Aristotle Onassis, who was married to former first lady Jackie Kennedy.
Athina is believed to have inherited $3 billion on her 18th birthday — and she’s a lifelong equestrian.
Word is Athina is renting a $1.5 million-house on Stroller Way at the Equestrian Club Estates, near the Winter Equestrian Festival’s showgrounds. She also reserved a half barn nearby for her horses.
Athina’s horseman husband, Brazil’s Alvaro De Miranda Neto, has competed in Wellinton the past.
Onassis was expected to compete in 2007 but cancelled after an equine herpes scare.
Athina — who’s known to travel in bulletproof limos with an extensive security staff — would join a field already stacked with the spawns of one percenters like NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and rock ‘n’ roller Bruce Springsteen.
Last winter Bill Gates, America’s richest man, plunked down $600,000 for a Wellington rental. He is not expected to return this winter.
Onassis’ humble digs are expected to set her back a modest $100,000!
