Tamara Ecclestone (December 2014)

As heiress to her parent’s fortune, this puts Ecclestone’s net worth higher than the average individual. Her father, Bernie who currently has a net worth of $3.3 billion, was once regarded as one of the U.K.’s wealthiest, according to Celebrity Net Worth. From serving as the chief executive of the Formula One Group to racing to real estate, it isn't a surprise that Ecclestone’s father holds billionaire status.

Ecclestone’s mother, Slavica Ecclestone, is also sitting on quite the fortune. Salvica was born in Croatia and started a modeling career as a teenager. Today, her net worth is estimated to be around $1.2 billion, ironically the same amount she received from her divorce from Bernie in 2009.

Moving on to Tamara Ecclestone, while she isn’t a billionaire, she’s said to be worth $300 million. Ecclestone hasn't only worked as a model but also as a presenter for various events including the Sky Sports Italia coverage of the 2009 Formula 1 season and the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. She has also starred in two reality TV shows, with the most recent being Tamara’s World (2017).

Tamara Ecclestone collects fancy things, including designer handbags and exquisite jewelry.

As the daughter of a model and having modeled herself, it isn’t surprising that Ecclestone has a jaw-dropping collection of designer clothes, shoes, and handbags. In 2017, she shared a video via Instagram that gave fans a glimpse into the closet many can only dream of having.

In 2019, Ecclestone lost precious gems and family heirlooms after her jewelry collection was raided. BBC released a documentary in July 2022 that highlighted details surrounding what is being called “the biggest home burglary in British history.”

While away on Christmas vacation, Ecclestone’s home was burglarized and more than 400 items, which included jewelry and watches valued at £26m or $31.3 million were taken. After the airing of the one-hour documentary BBC titled Who Stole Tamara Ecclestone’s Diamonds?, the socialite went public with a $7.2 million offer to anyone who could help her locate her precious jewelry.
