EX-BILLIONAIRE ACQUIRES RICHES OF ANOTHER SORT

Yachtsman, ex-billionaire and art world figure Alan Bond was married Saturday at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, Australia.

Bond, 56, may be best known for financing Australia's stunning victory against the United States in the 1983 America's Cup yachting race. He was ranked as one of the richest Australians before declaring bankruptcy in 1992. Bride Diana Bliss is a former public relations consultant. The ceremony was kept so secret that not even the guests knew where it would be until the last minute.
