Bella Hunter, daughter of the late rock musician Mark Hunter, is a married girl.
The 33-year-old Austrian DJ, who has been based mainly in Los Angeles for the past several years, walked down the aisle with 65-year-old American furniture salesman Gary Friedman.
Mark Hunter, who performed with the long-running New Zealand band Dragon, identified with their songs Rain and Are You Old Enough?, died of cancer in 1998 at the age of 44. If he had been alive as we speak, he may only be 4 years older than his ultra-rich son-in-law.
Friedman, owner of Restoration Hardware, a popular family goods retailer, is worth $2 billion on the Internet, according to Forbes.
The newlyweds tied the knot last weekend at the luxurious Six Senses resort in Ibiza with Sydney Morning Herald reporting “no expense spared”.
Entertainment reporter Richard Wilkins and his flight attendant girlfriend Nicole Dale were among the guests.
