    Roman Abramovich & Dasha Zhukova

    News has surfaced that: Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich and Garage Magazine founder Dasha Zhukova—one of the contemporary art scene’s biggest power couples—have split. In a statement released to the media on Monday, the couple said: “We are committed to jointly raising our two children. We will also continue to work together as co-founders of the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow and the New Holland Island cultural centre in Saint Petersburg.”

    However, there is some speculation that this might be a financial move. Among the Russian social media speculation on Monday were suggestions that the split was fueled by Western sanctions against Russia. High-level Russian officials have reportedly been divorcing their wives in recent years and by some accounts transferring assets to them as a way to protect their fortunes against potential seizure.

    Sometimes it is all about the money!
