Dorit Kemsley husband
Paul Kemsley (husband)
Date of birth: August 17, 1967
Dorit met her husband in New York. Their friends introduced the rich property owner Paul and the tender blonde Dorit to each other. He liked her at first sight and invited the woman for a date, but she refused because she had to go on business to China. But Paul convinced her to cancel the flight. Since that evening the lovebirds were inseparable. Kemsley, who comes from Britain, moved to New York. They dated just for a while when Paul dared to propose Dorit, having stood up on one knee in a luxurious restaurant, where the parents of both were present.
They exchanged the vows at a lavish wedding ceremony, which took place in the Rainbow Room, the luxurious venue in New York. On March 7, 2020, they celebrated the happy fifth anniversary.
Paul Zeital Kemsley was born and raised in the district of London, called Stanmore. He graduated from Atholl School and then decided to start working. He got his first working experience at the age of 15 when he was hired as a salesman to the lavish shop “John Paul Menswear”. At work, he met aspiring businessman Mike Ashley, who opened the boutique “Sports World” and invited Paul to work there.
In 1985 Kemsley changed the focus of his career from sports equipment to real estate and found a job at “Ross Jaye”. During many years he earned his living as a realtor when he finally dared to start his own business.
Having become successful as a real estate mogul, Paul tried his hand as a football club owner, and then as a talent manager. Now the famous singer Boy George is one of his clients.
Previously to meeting Dorit, Paul was married to Loretta Gold and welcomed three children with her. Their names are Atlanta, Tatum, and Daniel. But the couple separated in 2012. Three years later he convinced Dorit to marry him, and that was his best achievement (as the man confessed on his Instagram page).
