Chelsea Owner Billionaire Abramovich Prepares To Host Lavish New Year's Eve Party

With Chelsea facing its biggest crisis in the 12 years he has owned the club, it's no surprise Roman Abramovich has decided to sail away from it all.

The 49-year-old billionaire has taken a much-needed break with his family on the Caribbean island of St Barts where he owns a £49million home.

He was seen browsing the shops with his six-year-old son Aaron after mooring his £1.5billion mega-yacht, The Eclipse, nearby. The Russian oligarch is set to host New Year's Eve celebrations for guests including Princess Beatrice at his mansion in two days' time.
