A multi-millionaire hotelier died hours after partying in a posh London nightclub, just weeks after his lavish wedding.
Vivek Chadha, a 33-year-old property tycoon, ran the multi-million-pound Nine Group, which had a diverse portfolio of hotels and properties. He collapsed in the early hours of Sunday, October 24, at an address in central London, hours after being spotted enjoying a night out at the swanky Annabel’s nightclub in Mayfair.
According to sources close to Vivek, his mysterious death was caused by natural causes, with a post mortem expected in the coming weeks.
The businessman, who also owned a Pizza Hut franchise, tragically leaves behind his new wife, Stuttee Chaddha, 29, whom he married just eight weeks ago in a beautiful Sikh ceremony.
Friends described the lavish week of celebrations at London’s Park Lane’s five-star JW Marriott Grosvenor House hotel as a “fairytale wedding.”
His heartbroken wife told MailOnline that she is “in shock” and “still trying to make sense” of Vivek’s death following his mysterious death.
Stuttee said: “We only got married eight weeks ago and it was beautiful. Now I’m having to deal with the loss of the love of my life.”
She was consoled by Vivek’s close relatives and his parents, Gursharan, 61, and Jasbir, 58, who said they are “in too much pain” to talk about their son’s death.
According to a source, he did not die at his central London home, but rather at another location in the city when he collapsed.
According to Companies House accounts, Vivek’s illustrious business, Nine Estates Limited, raked in £2.5 million from 2017 to 2019, with a £1.3 million gross profit.
The multi-company millionaire owns upscale properties such as the four-star London 02 Arena Hotel and four Holiday Inn franchises.
It also owns a pub in Surrey, the Halt & Pull, and recently struck a deal with Pizza Hut, for which Vivek had already devised massive expansion plans.
The 33-year-old co-founded the illustrious Nine Group with his father in 2012 and has since grown it into one of the country’s largest private hotel companies. The company now owns 18 hotels across the United Kingdom, in addition to extensive commercial and residential investments.
