Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa is serious about his search for a special someone to join him on a space voyage to the moon.
Having recently split up with his girlfriend, fashion mogul Maezawa has launched an online appeal for a female “life partner” to accompany him on SpaceX’s maiden tourist voyage — a slingshot trip around the moon tentatively scheduled for 2023.
“As feelings of loneliness and emptiness slowly begin to surge upon me, there’s one thing that I think about: continuing to love one woman,” 44-year-old Maezawa wrote Thursday in an online appeal.
“I want to find a ‘life partner.’ With that future partner of mine, I want to shout our love and world peace from outer space.”
Maezawa, who founded Japan’s popular online shopping site Zozotown, is worth an estimated $2 billion.
