Report: Porsche President Leaving Wife Because She Has Dementia

Estimated read time 2 min read

If true, that’s pretty low.

An explosive report from Daily Mail claims Wolfgang Porsche, the current President of the Supervisory Board of Porsche Automobil Holding SE and Porsche AG, plans to divorce his wife because she has developed a “dementia-like illness.” If true, that’s a pretty rotten thing, but it gets even worse.

The report also claims Wolfgang Porsche, who is 79-years-old, has “become close” with a 59-year-old ex-model Gabriela Prinzessin zu Leiningen who before was the wife of Prince Karl-Emich zu Leiningen and Swiss Karim Aga Khan IV. In other words, she’s practiced at marrying affluent, powerful men.

Caring for a loved who one’s suffering from a neurological condition can be taxing, although most people bear the burden out of love. Porsche’s wife Claudia, who is 74, reportedly has four caregivers who provide for her every need around the clock, plus her daughter lives with the couple and helps out, so it’s not like Wolfgang is all that put out with providing for her needs. Claudia and Wolfgang have been together for 16 years and married back in 2019.

The New York Post says reports indicate Wolfgang finds Claudia “impossible” to live with since her health and behavior both declined recently. We have no idea just how her behavior has changed since reports don’t provide details. However, it’s claimed she can’t move without assistance and has been that way for months.

In case you don’t know, Wolfgang is Ferdinand Porsche’s grandson. He’s the son of Ferdinand “Ferry” Porsche, who was a designer and then CEO of Porsche AG back in the day. Wolfgang’s assets are reportedly valued at 20 billion euros. He and Gabriela Prinzessin zu Leiningen reportedly have been friends for some time, but it appears things have moved well beyond that.
