Parents of Christina and her brother Alexander did not get along well, her father was fond of love affairs, and her mother fell into depression, and soon they divorced. In 1975, after the death of her father, a twenty-four-year-old girl became the only heir of Onassis, because before that her brother had crashed in an accident, and her mother passed away.
The yacht “Christina O” became the main place where the young daughter of the Onassis couple spent years. The ship in its parameters could give odds to the representatives of the royal fleet. The girl played with dolls, the outfit for which the most famous couturiers of the world sewed. She thought that everyone lived this way around, although often the world around her saw only through the window of a luxury yacht.The constantly busy father generously gave the children presents, but paid little attention to the family.

Billionaire Aristotle went berserk, having learned about this union. He put his daughter a tough condition: either she is divorced, or he strikes her out of the inheritance. Under active pressure, the marriage broke up after a few months.
The second wife of Alexandros Andreadis, Christina, met soon after the death of her father, who was buried in a family crypt on Scorpios.The husband managed to squander tens of millions of Onassis fortunes in six months. In connection with this and the dissimilarity of the characters, the heiress of the billionaire filed for divorce. Then she begins to actively engage in business, which is good for her.
Being engaged in the company of her father, Christina Onassis managed to competently keep her business afloat in times of crisis. Soon she meets a Russian official, Sergey Kausov. Some sources claim that she was bribed by the beautiful voice of a stranger who responded to her when negotiating for the supply of oil with Moscow. There are suggestions that Sergei was a KGB officer, and their marriage with Christine was put on the ears of many special services of Western countries.
But the Soviet realities turned out to be unbearable for a woman who was accustomed to living in luxury without denying herself anything. Soon the couple gets divorced, Onassis returns to his homeland, helps his ex-husband go abroad. She gives Kausov a tanker to start a business, and after a while he becomes a very rich man and marries an Englishwoman.
The daughter of Onassis, Christina, returning to her native Skorpios, arranges secular receptions and leads a rather violent lifestyle.After meeting her fourth husband, Thierry Rossel, the billionaire is undergoing treatment for drug addiction, the daughter Athena is born in a marriage. However, this alliance cracked at the seams. The French businessman after the wedding continued to meet with the former lover, a fashion model from Sweden. Moreover, they had two children born out of wedlock.
Unable to withstand such a blow, Christina Onassis gets divorced once again. After that, she returns to a wild life and is engaged in raising her daughter. Rossel from billions Onassis does not get almost anything, except for about $ 12 million a year for maintenance.
