Athena Onassis angry with the Rybolovlev family

The only heir of Greek billionaire Aristotle Onassis, Athena, is very dissatisfied, and even angry, with Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev.
According to a publication in the Greek Ciao magazine, the reason is Skorpios Island and in particular, how he and his daughter Ekaterina are using it. Long before signing the sale contract for the Ionian island Athena warned Rybolovlev that the new owner must fully respect the history of the island and preserve its style, as well as to keep some of the buildings and to use Skorpios fully in the spirit of the tradition that has been left by her grandfather Aristotle.

A year after the sale of the island Athena reports that the new owners have not respected the deal and according to sources, she told people who are close to her, "I did not know they would turn Skorpios into a discotheque."

Sources say that Athena is dissatisfied with the amount received from Dmitry Rybolovlev for the island, as she believes that she could have sold it for more money.

This was the reason for her refusal to attend Ekaterina Rybolovleva’s birthday party on Skorpios last month. Athena refused politely, citing obligations that would not allow her to attend it, but sources claim that the causes were deeper.

On one side is her desire to stay away from everything that connects her with her mother’s family and on the other the fact that she regrets the sale of Skorpios, not from a sentimental but from a purely financial point of view.
