Mikhail Prokhorov, Russia’s fifth richest man worth about $22bn has denied reports that he was the misery buyer of the €500m Villa Leopolda in Cote d’Azur, the world’s most expensive home.

With the French and Russian media insisting that Mr.Prokhorov was indeed the misery buyer of Villa Leopolda, his spokesman denied the allegations by explaining that his boss refused to do business in France until he got an apology for being held in a prostitution probe.

Roman Abramovich, another Russian magnate and Britain’s second richest resident also denies the purchase. We know for certain that the buyer was Russian.

Central London and the French Riviera are the current hotspots for Russian buyers.
