Star Island home
In 2009, the Russian billionaire, Vladislav Doronin, bought the Star-Island home from the retired basketball player, Shaquille O’Neal. He got it at a discount though - for $16 million which is $2 million less that what the basketball star payed for it in 2004. The home was actually listed for $32 million in 2005 before the real-estate roller-coaster brought it down.
Location: The home is located on the artificial island in Biscayne Bay within the City of Miami Beach in Florida. The little oval island has about 35 home sites on it.
Accommodation: The home is very unique just like all the other houses that the Russian billionaire has bought. The house boasts of eight bedrooms and an equal number of impressive bathrooms. The house has been styled along Mediterranean lines and arrives with a car garage that can house six cars. An added guest house increases the home's luxuriously accommodating capacity for another 4 people.
Features: Having belong to Shaq, it is no surprise that the house has a basketball court attached to it. The total ground area for the property is an impressive 2.5 acres and houses many facilities. A mini-harbor dock, a tennis court and a large, private pool are located in its grounds. The house is characterized by a gigantic, two-storey tall living room which has been amply furnished. There are also separate areas for a modern gym and an indoor steam/sauna room.
Neighborhood: Star Island is home only for the ultra rich. Will Smith, Gloria Estefan, Paulina Rubio, Madonna and Sylvester Stallone are some of the stars who have owned properties on the island.

Neighborhood: One Hyde Park’s status as the most expensive apartment complex in the world has helped to attract some of the most powerful men in the world.

Naomi Campbell was snapped by the paparazzi vacationing in the beaches of Ibiza with her Russian boyfriend Vladislav Doroni. Campbell spent close to a week there in August 2008 and had a great time sunbathing on the deck of her luxury yacht. She also spent a lot of time by the sea beach and loved to splash around in the crystal clear sea waters with her boyfriend.

Vacation in Spain
Naomi Campbell spent a day at the Miami sea resort on 19th March 2013. The supermodel was provided just the perfect company by her billionaire boyfriend, Russian entrepreneur Vladimir Doronin during her day out at Miami. Campbell jumped straight into the cool welcoming sea waters after a hectic work out session. Apparently Naomi was so thoroughly stressed out that she didn’t even wait to don a bikini and instead bathed in the sea donning her exercise gear. Later she went for a run along the beach front along with her beau.
