  • Description

    Paul Getty III, 18-year-old grandson of the American oil millionare, married on Thursday (12 September) night a 25-year-old West German model, Martine Zacher. She is a divorcee with a daughter.

    The marriage was performed by the Mayor of Sovicille, a small town outside Siena where Mr Getty's mother, Mrs Gail Harris, has a villa.

    Mr. Getty was the victim of a kidnapping in Italy last year, during which his captors cut off his right ear and sent it to a Rome newspaper before releasing him.

    It was then reported that his family had paid as ransom of GBP 1,250.000 sterling (3,000.000 US Dollars).

    Thursday's ceremony ended weeks of newspaper speculation about the young man's matrimonial plans. And, until he and Miss Zacher entered the Svoicille Town Hall on Thursday evening, it was not certain that they would be married at all.
