The billionaire Porsche executive who is divorcing his wife after she was diagnosed with dementia has reportedly moved in with his new girlfriend.
Wolfgang Porsche, 79, struggled to live with his wife Claudia, 74, due to changes in her behavior after she was diagnosed with dementia two years ago, sources close to the couple said.
It emerged yesterday that the car magnate had filed for divorce amid rumors that he had grown closer in recent months with a friend he had dated for 25 years, Gabriele Prinzessin zu Leiningen.
And now Porsche has moved in with 59-year-old Gabriela – who is now his girlfriend, it is claimed – after they enjoyed a holiday together to the Maldives in January.
The former model’s close circle of friends told Austrian media that the couple’s decision to move in together was because they both wanted to avoid spending time apart.

However, it has not been disclosed whether they have moved into Porsche’s home in Zell am See, Austria, or the princess’s luxurious villa in Munich.
It came after it was revealed that Porsche has filed for divorce from Claudia, his partner of 16 years, who is known to suffer from a dementia-like illness.
Sources told BIld that the billionaire finds it “impossible” to live with his wife as her declining health has reportedly permanently changed her personality.
Claudia, who is a grandmother, has four carers who care for her around the clock after suffering from the disease for the past two years.
She has reportedly been unable to move independently for months and her mental awareness has rapidly deteriorated.
Wolfgang and Claudia have been together since 2007 and got married in 2019. The wealth of the Porsche family is estimated at 20 billion euros.
In recent months, Wolfgang is said to have grown closer to Gabriela – also known as Inaara Aga Khan – who was born in April 1963 in Frankfurt.
Like Porsche’s wife Claudia, she studied law in Munich and Cologne.
In 1991, Gabriela married Prince Karl Emich of Leiningen, who claims to be heir to the defunct House of Romanov in Russia, and with whom she shares a daughter, Princess Theresa of Leiningen. The couple divorced seven years later in 1998.
Later that year, she married Swiss Karim Aga Khan IV, 86, the 49th Imam of the Nizari Ismailis who is considered a direct descendant of the Prophet Muhammad.
The couple share a son, Prince Aly Muhammad Aga Khan, and were involved in a high-profile divorce battle that took 10 years to settle.
They eventually divorced in 2014.
Since 2004 she has been actively involved in the fight against AIDS and supports the German AIDS Foundation.
