Michelle’s Oscar win has also shed some light on her personal life. After the ceremony, she posted an image with her fiancé, Jean Todt. She captioned the image with various emojis including hearts.
Is Jean Todt married to Michelle Yeoh?
Not many were aware that the pair were together, or how they met. Interestingly, the couple met at the 2004 Shanghai Grand Prix. Michelle was engaged in promotional events when she came across Todt. He was the Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 team’s General Manager at the time.
F1 fans would know that this was the dynasty period for Ferrari at the time. Michael Schumacher was the best racing driver on the planet and he almost seemed unbeatable. Ferrari and Schumacher were a killer combination that other teams were terrified of at the time.
Todt has revealed in the past that he doesn’t miss Michael and watches F1 races with the legend. He said, “Him, Corinna, the family, we’ve had so many experiences together. The beauty of what we have experienced is part of us and it goes on. Sometimes success and money changes you. But Michael has never changed. He’s so strong.”
A fascinating fact is that the German driver was the one to play wingman in Michelle and Todt’s love story. As multiple sources claim, Schumacher helped Todt with relationship advice. He told the former FIA president that it would be better for the couple to communicate through text.
It eventually worked out best for them considering how often they had to deal with a long-distance relationship, mainly because of their conflicting schedules.
Despite being together for almost two decades, the couple isn’t married yet. They have mentioned that the reason is the lack of time but fans have been eagerly waiting for the day they tie the knot.
