Art dealer Brandon Davis hails from a clan of high-profile oil barons
|Perhaps best known for his 2004/5 romance with The OC beauty Mischa Barton, whom he romanced for a year, Brandon Davis is the grandson of a larger-than-life Texan with an uncanny knack for investing in oil wells that turned a tidy profit.
By the time of his death in 2004 mogul Marvin Davis had also turned his attention to movies, having bought a studio by the name of 20th Century Fox. But even that purchase doesn't seem to have put a dint in the Davis coffers which, according to Forbes magazine, contain an estimated $5.8 billion.
While current legal wrangles surrounding the estate mean that figure may be revised downwards his grandson's access to LA's beautiful crowd is already ensured. An Andy Warhol fan and pop art dealer by day, by night Brandon is a key figure on the city's social scene.
