Meet the porn heiresses worth half a billion dollars

Fawn and India Rose James are the granddaughters of London pornography and property mogul Paul Raymond.

Fawn, 28, and India Rose, 23, share an estimated fortune of $560 million after inheriting their grandfather Paul Raymond’s vast estate.

Raymond opened the UK’s first strip club, The Raymond Revue Bar, in 1958 in London’s Soho.

It proved wildly successful and made him wealthy enough to buy up large chunks of property in the area, earning him the nickname “King of Soho.”

At the same time, he set up Paul Raymond Publications, launching men’s magazines Men Only, Escort, Club International and Mayfair.

He was about to hand over the reins of the business to his daughter Debbie when she died of an accidental heroin overdose in 1992.

Although Raymond had four grandchildren, he only recognized two — Debbie’s daughters Fawn and India Rose — in his will, leaving them $126 million when he died in 2008. They were just 22 and 17 at the time.

Raymond’s son Howard and his daughters Cheyenne, 24, and Boston, 22, received nothing.
