Marcus Lemonis Married His Second Wife after He Bought Her Business Deal
American business executive Marcus Lemonis first met his entrepreneur wife, Bobbi Raffel Lemonis, during an event where she sold him her business idea.
It was the year 2016 when the CEO of Camping World and America’s largest RV and outdoor retailer, Marcus, met his present-day wife Bobbi Raffel Lemonis for the first time.
Bobbi, who owned a fashion business then, first approached Marcus in the event because she wanted to sell her business deal to him. Her business included fashion groups, designer brands, and retail stores.
Impressed with the deal, the Lebanese-born American business person purchased her business idea, which marked not only the start of their business but also a romantic partnership.
Soon after the business trade, they started seeing each other, reports Netline. And a couple of months after that, in December 2016, The Profit star proposed to her. The former sales manager happily accepted the proposal.
Shed Tears On His Wedding Day
Marcus Lemonis (47) and Bobbi Raffel Lemonis married in February 2018 in front of family and friends at the Hotel Bel-Air.
While speaking about his marriage with Page Six Magazine, the businessman revealed that he cried on his wedding day. He expressed that the wedding day was “a really special” occasion for him and his close ones, although it was celebrated simply.
I cried. It was just a really special day. Nothing spectacular, very simple. It was just awesome.
The wedding — a weekend-long affair with many outfit changes and parties — witnessed both priest and cantor (since the bride and groom are not of the same faith).
Wife Is Older Than Him
Bobbi, who celebrates her birthday every September 21, manages a very private life, due to which her age is unknown. But her husband Marcus’ age is made known to the public — he was born on November 16, 1973, and as of April 2021, he is 47 years old.
Despite his wife's ‘undisclosed’ age, it is clear through their pictures that he is way younger than his partner.
But despite their seeming age difference, the couple looks to be unbothered by the age factor as they spend happy times together.
Was Married To Ila Lemonis
Bobbi is not the first woman the Lebanese-born business executive got married to. He was previously married to businesswoman Ila Lemonis (birth name Ila Penfold).
According to Netline, Marcus got married to his first wife in 2003. The couple managed an on and off relationship until they officially divorced in 2017.
Besides that, Marcus had dated The Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel back around 2015.
As for Bobbi, she also has her share of past relationships.
It can be said so because she has biological children and grandchildren (she has no kids with Marcus.) She often posts about her daughter and 43-year-old son on her social media.
