He and Gal once owned a boutique hotel, which they sold to a Russian billionaire for $26 million.
Love life and marriage with Gal Gadot
Both Yaron and Gal Gadot prefer to keep their marriage away from the media’s attention, but Gal has shared some details concerning the two in one of her interviews.
They were apparently friends in their teens – it was at a party that they met for the first time.

They exchanged phone numbers and were friends for a couple of months before they dated.
