Congrats to George Lucas and Mellody Hobson for their Engagement
If anyone could have an out of this world wedding it's George Lucas. While that is a poor joke, it's also pretty true given that the man has absolutely bags of money, and so does his new fiancée, Mellody Hobson.
Lucas and Hobson have been together for many years but they have only just decided to get married, says the Hollywood Reporter. Lucas has been married once before but this it the first- and hopefully last- time that Hobson will walk down the aisle. She works with Dreamworks, but also heads up and investment business as well as a mutual funds firm, both under the name of 'Ariel'. It's thought to be the biggest black-American money management conglomerates in the US.
Lucas also sold his film production company LucasFilm late last year for an extraordinary $4.05b. However, he also gave all that money to an education foundation. At the time he said: "As I start a new chapter in my life, it is gratifying that I have the opportunity to devote more time and resources to philanthropy." Along with Hobson he'll be beginning an entirely new chapter once again. We wish them all the best and look forward to the wedding photos! If it's not Star Wars themed a lot of people will be very disappointed.
