Sir Clive Sinclair, 69 years-old, has married a former lap dancer half his age. Congrats!
Sinclair's company Sinclair Research Ltd. released the 8-bit ZX Spectrum home computer in the early 1980s, months before the Commodore 64 hit stores in the U.S. The ZX Spectrum helped to propel the UK computer industry. The ZX Spectrum's library was over 20,000 titles strong, and many British game designers got their start programming games for the computer.
According to the Daily Mail, Angie Bowness, 33 years-old, first met Sinclair in 1995 while she was in her late teens and was working as a stripper in Stringfellows' club in Central London. The two dated off and on over the decade. Bowness married another businessman and had a son, born in April 1998. After her divorce, she began seeing Sinclair again, and he proposed to her in 2003. She, however, turned him down, saying that she was too young. This month, she finally agreed to take his hand in marriage.
"I suggested on the plane that we get married," says Sir Clive, who also invented the pocket calculator. "It was a spur of the moment thing."
Bowness, a former Miss England, will now become Lady Sinclair. She owns two houses; however, she has since moved into Sinclair's £5 million apartment that overlooks London's Trafalgar Square.
Best wishes to both Sir and Lady Sinclair! Marriage is a wonderful institution.
