Marcus Lemonis, an American business executive, met his entrepreneur wife, Bobbi Raffel Lemonis, at an event where she pitched him on her business idea.
Marcus, the CEO of Camping World, America’s largest RV and outdoor shop, met his current wife Bobbi Raffel Lemonis for the first time in 2016. Bobbi, who was then the owner of a fashion company, approached Marcus at the event to offer her business opportunity to him. Fashion groups, designer brands, and retail stores were all part of her company.
The Lebanese-born American businessperson was so impressed with the deal that he bought her business idea, kicking off their business and a romantic relationship. They began dating soon after the commercial transaction, according to Netline. The Profit star then proposed to her a few months later, in December 2016. The former sales manager gladly accepted the suggestion.
Marcus Lemonis Was Previously Married To Ila Lemonis
Bobbi is not the first lady married to a Lebanese-born business executive. Ila Lemonis, a businesswoman, was his first wife (birth name Ila Penfold).
Marcus married his first wife in 2003, according to Netline. The couple had an on-again, off-again romance until they separated in 2017.
Marcus had previously dated Bethenny Frankel of The Real Housewives of New York City in 2015.
On the other hand, Bobbi has had her fair share of previous relationships. She has biological children and grandchildren (she does not have children with Marcus) and frequently tweets about her daughter and 43-year-old son on social media.
A Weekend-Long Celebration
Marcus Lemonis (47) and Bobbi Raffel Lemonis (47) married in February 2018 at the Hotel Bel-Air in front of family and friends. The billionaire admitted that he cried while speaking with Page Six Magazine about his nuptials on his wedding day. He described the wedding day as “a truly special” experience for him and his family, although it was held in a simple manner.
The priest and the cantor were present at the wedding, which was a weekend-long celebration with multiple outfit changes and festivities (since the bride and groom are not of the same faith).
An Older Wife
Bobbi, who celebrates her birthday on September 21, leads a very secret life. Thus, her exact age is unknown. On the other hand, Marcus’ age is public knowledge: he was born on November 16, 1973, and as of April 2021, he is 47 years old. Despite his wife’s ‘undisclosed’ age, it is evident from their photos that he is much younger than his spouse.
Despite their age difference, the couple appears unconcerned about it as they enjoy beautiful hours together.
