Billionaire heiress Ivy Getty, husband Tobias Engel files for divorce

Last Modified: 4th Apr

Billionaire oil heiress and socialite Ivy Getty has filed for divorce from her actor husband Tobias Engel after four years of marriage.

“Obviously, being a member of the Getty family, Ivy is careful about legal entanglements,” a source revealed after the knowledge of divorce filing became public.

According to court documents, Getty filed for divorce in January 2024 and is listed as “contested” – meaning the parties did not settle before the divorce was filed.

Aside from some wedding pictures, Engel’s photos appear to have been removed from the socialite’s Instagram feed.

The former couple first met at Paris Fashion Week and eventually got engaged in Capri, Italy.

The soon-to-be ex-couple had tied the knot in a private wedding ceremony in December 2020. They also had an extravagant ceremony in November 2021, which was covered by Vogue.

Getty, 29, and Engel held a pre-wedding party at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, California. Performances were made by Mark Ronson and Earth, Wind & Fire during the event.

The pair were wed by former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and actress Anya Taylor-Joy was a bridesmaid.

Elites including Fletcher Cowan, filmmaker Christian Coppola,  San Francisco Mayor London Breed, Vanessa Getty, Governer Gavin Newsom, fashion designer Wes Gordon, Princess Olympia of Greece, Vogue veteran Hamish Bowlesm and Mimi Wade attended the wedding.

Engel, whose birthplace is Vienna, is the son of English actress Cheryl Prime and Austrian businessman Peter Engel.

Famous for being the great-granddaughter of oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, she is the daughter of John Gilbert, who died of fentanyl overdose in 2020. Her mother is jewelry designer Alyssa Boothby.

Getty’s great-grandfather owned Getty Oil and was one of the richest men in the world. However, he is well known for refusing to pay the ransom of $17 million to release grandson John Paul Getty III from kidnappers in the 1970s. The late mogul did wound up paying $2.2 million after John’s severed ear was sent to a newspaper in Rome.
