The Riches of Nikita Kahn
How rich is Nikita Kahn? As of late-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $25 million, earned through success in her various endeavors.
While she’s earned a lot of income from her career endeavors, the main source for all this wealth is believed to be her boyfriend, who has a net worth estimated at close to $70 billion.
Early Life and Education
Very little is known about Nikita’s life prior to her rise to fame alongside Ellison. She has not shared information about her family and childhood. It is known that she grew up in Russia during the latter part of its run as the Soviet Union, during which time she showed interest in performing, and started training as a gymnast as well as in ballet. After matriculating from high school, she then enrolled at Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv to complete a degree in hospitality tourism.
The university is located in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine and is ranked within the top 550 universities in the world. It is the third oldest university in the country, having been founded in 1834, and has changed its name several times over its existence. It was one of the top three universities in the USSR during the Soviet Union era. The school is also known for producing numerous notable alumni.
Further Studies in US and Career
After completing her bachelor’s degree, she then furthered her studies by enrolling for an MBA at the university, following the completion of which she moved to the US and started taking courses in architectural engineering.
At this point she apparently chose to change her name, but why to Nikita Kahn is unknown. She also tried her hand at finding a career in the entertainment industry, which led to her being cast in the film “Catch .44”, alongside Forest Whitaker and Bruce Willis. Deborah Ann Woll and Malin Akerman also make appearances in the film.
Afterwards, she focused more on animal rights activism, and even became the executive producer of the documentary entitled “The Last Animals”, which tells the story of people going to extreme lengths to help protect nearly extinct animals from poachers and traffickers.
She also became a board member of the Peninsula Humane Society and SPCA. Business was another avenue she forayed into, as she started her own real estate agency, which specializes in remodeling homes.
Boyfriend – Larry Ellison
After moving away from college education, Larry became very interested in computer design, and began working for the company Ampex in the 1970s. During his time there, he discovered Edgar F. Codd’s research on relational database design, and a few years later became involved in the creation of the company Oracle.
The technology company began as a database vendor to mid- and low-range systems, which was a successful endeavor. He quickly grew to become one of the richest men in the world thanks to Oracle, which is now based in California, selling software and related technology.
Oracle has since branched out to other technologies, such as cloud engineered systems and enterprise software products, creating its own brand. In 2018, it was reported that it had become the third largest software company by revenue.
The company continues to develop databases for middle tier software, and other products include enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, supply chain management (SCM) software, customer relationship management (CRM) software, and Human Capital Management (HCM) software. In recent years, he’s continued to be involved with the company as the Chief Technology Officer, while also being a director on the board of Tesla, Inc.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Nikita is in a relationship for Larry, reputedly dating since 2010.

He has been married four times before, but the couple show no signs of marrying anytime soon. Reports state that she resides in her own mansion spanning over 7,800 square feet, with seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. Her boyfriend also started a restaurant named after her called Nikita Malibu which features Italian and Mediterranean cuisine.
Her favorite place to go on a date is Disneyland. She has also collaborated with the California Rescue Center, helping raise $600,000 for the organization.
One of the reasons there is limited information about her is due to the lack of any social media presence. She does not have accounts on websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, preferring to keep her life out of the spotlight. Instead she maintains her own women’s lifestyle blog, on which she shares posts on numerous aspects, including travel, fitness, nutrition, beauty, and health. She created the blog to help provide her readers with knowledge and to empower women who want to make the most of their lives. She’s gained a lot of luxury thanks to the help of her boyfriend, and no doubt looks to increase her wealth as time progresses.
