The French politician has an estimated net worth of $145 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Villepin Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Rabat Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondervillepin - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Dominique) and a fashion line called “Dominique de Villepin Seduction”.
