Reclusive Billionaire Businessman Inadverdently Has His Picture Taken With President-Elect


Following years of successfully avoiding the paparazzi, Isaac “Ike” Perlmutter was finally captured in a photograph.

The incident occurred Wednesday as the reclusive billionaire and CEO of Marvel Entertainment was in a meeting with President-elect Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

Perlmutter and Trump were discussing the organization of a health summit.

Jonathan Ernst, a photographer for Reuters, snapped the extremely rare photo of Perlmutter by shooting through a window.

Prior to this photo the most recent image of Perlmutter is said to have been taken in the 1980’s.

Serious about his privacy, reportedly, Perlmutter attended the 2008 premiere of Iron Man in disguise.

Seventy-four year-old Perlmutter who, according to Forbes, has a net worth of approximately 3.9 billion, immigrated to the United States from Israel after fighting in the Six Day War in 1967, with a dream and $250.

He began his career by selling toys and through persistence and hard work he rose to the position of CEO of Marvel Entertainment in 2005. Perlmutter went on to sell Marvel to Disney in 2009 for $4 billion.

Perlmutter is responsible for Marvel Entertainment getting into film production.

The first film to be released was Iron Man in 2008, which earned a total of $318 million in ticket sales.

Images of Perlmutter are so rare that The Hollywood Reporter had artist Paul Tuller get a description of the recluse from those around him and create a portrait based on the descriptions.

A longtime friend of Donald Trump, Perlmutter donated $1 million to the president-elect’s fundraising event for veterans last January.
