Roman Abramovich Buys Land on the Moon

What do you get the girl who has everything?

Roman Abramovich has just purchased 100 acres of land on the moon for his girlfriend Dasha Zhukova.  (Here they are earlier this week, strolling down Madison Avenue in NYC. We like to imagine that the only thing Dasha has in her handbag is a nail file and stacks and stacks of crisp hundreds. It makes us feel safe.) 

Roman bought the moon space via the Lunar Embassy, which sells land to the weathy and the sci-fi freaky deakys amongst us.  Oh, if you wish to pop by to drop off a happy land-owning gift, Dasha’s plot is located between 20-24°S latitude and 30-34°W longitude. No word on whether she plans to use the area for extra stiletto storage, though it would seem to make the most sense.

Random: Dasha is quite the culture vulture and has recently convinced Roman to get in on the Russian art market.

    I’m only on this site because I was idly wondering if this man had ever used any of his (probably) ill-gotten gains for some charitable purpose. So I googled Abramovich and charity. Thin pickings. What a waste of space this guy is!

    So there IS still some money left…

    LOL @ LTG If I was him I would have opted for a personality transplant.

    I'm with Jules – why the moon? I don't foresee them ever going to visit said property. And if they do, I will spend the next 10 to 20 years laughing at the idiots that allowed that to happen. A nice private island or a retreat home or a charity gift to Ethiopia would have been much nicer. In multiple ways. Its a waste of money.

    I can only interpret that look to mean…”DUURRR”. And I’m with you on the moon thing, V. Who has the right to sell it? A fool and his money are easily parted…

  6. lose that girl says:

    People are losing their jobs, their homes and this loser with too much money and not enough brains buys land on the moon. Talk about a space cadet.

    lose that girl blog

    He probably bought the land online from an exiled nigerian… I doubt he has any illusions about ever exercising those property rights.

  8. Andy says:

    Mr. Roman go spend the money on quality players and ask your club inexperienced coach Scolari to SELL Anelka, Kalou and Malouda or reduce their wages because they are a waste to the Chelsea team. This game is emotional, so please, Mr.Roman, Scolari, Anelka, Kalou and Malouda stop playing with our emotions and anger.Mr.Roman,if you invested in Chelsea as just a mere investment and no ,love for the game, please step aside.

    He looks pissed off. In a comical way. And she looks like she was his daughter rather than his gf. Weird, but she is pretty dont you guys agree? and as for the moon thing, I think its kinda retarded…1. Venice is so right, who the heck owns the moon? puulease and 2. what the f*** are you gonna do with it? even with a lot of imagination you cant see it. Why didnt he buy her a nice little private isle with a beach house and palms, so she can leave that boring black nyc style behind and get a nice tan on her very own beach? yeah ok, maybe that'd be MY perfect gift, but anyways. Land on the moon…I dont get it.

    i remember when she used to date marat safin. what a downgrade!

  11. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    That's a crap present. If I were her I would be seriously unimpressed. Why not some nice Christian Louboutins instead?

  12. Dee13 (mrs m metze) says:

    truly amazing what people will spend their money on…

  13. Becca says:

  14. klyn312 says:

    NOW If we can just get him to move his football club there… KIDDING girls! kidding.. I couldn't resist!

  15. aristeia says:

    Erin & Venice, I notice the same thing. He always looks surprised, or perhaps sheepish would be the better word. What’s going on in his brain?

  16. AJ says:

    Disgusting, filthy Oligarch. Like spending money stolen from the Russian people to buy a football team wasn’t bad enough. Now, imaginary land on the moon. Co**sucker. Oh, and after spending hundreds of millions of pounds on Dasha’s little pet project…she admits she still hasn’t a clue about art. Despise him. She’s not much better. :S

  17. Venice says:

    LOL Erin, I agree! He has the emotion chart of an Irish setter. He does look thick. I guess that’s how they managed to sell him land on the Moon :-D (is that even legal? Who exactly owns the moon?)

  18. Erin says:

    He always has that same look on his face.
