‘There are no words for my pain’: Heartbroken widow, 29, of millionaire hotel tycoon, 33, tells of ‘devastation’ after he collapsed and died following night of partying just two months after they tied knot at lavish Sikh wedding

  • Property tycoon Vivek Chadha, 33, ran multi-million-pound Nine Group
  • Mr Chadha collapsed at a central London address on Saturday night 
  • Only two months ago, Mr Chadha married former model Stuttee Chaddha, 29
  • She said: ‘I’m in huge shock and devastated… There are no words for my pain’

The grieving widow of a young multi-millionaire property tycoon today told of her heartbreak over his sudden death just eight weeks after the ‘deeply in love’ couple got married.

Vivek Chadha, 33, enjoyed close links to Conservative Party grandees and ran the multi-million-pound Nine Group, which has extensive hotel and property interests.

He mysteriously collapsed at a central London address in the early hours of Sunday morning, just hours after being spotted partying at the exclusive Annabel’s night club on Saturday night.

Today his widow, former model Stuttee Chadha, 29, cried as she told MailOnline: ‘I’m still in huge shock and devastated. 

‘I have not even been able to reply to the huge number of messages of sympathy that have been sent to me because at the moment, there’s nothing I can say. There are no words for my pain.’

Mr Chadha married only two months ago in a lavish Sikh ceremony at the five-star JW Marriott Grosvenor House hotel, on London’s Park Lane, that culminated in a week of festivities.

Stuttee told MailOnline that they had been together for three years.

Friends revealed that the family has not been informed as to the exact reasons for Mr Chadha’s death (pictured Mr Chadha with ex-PM David Cameron at 10 Downing Street)

She said: ‘This is not a good time for me or Vivek’s family. His death happened very suddenly, and we are not able to come to terms with it yet. It’s not even started sinking in.’

There is likely to be a post-mortem to establish the causes of Mr Chadha’s death, given his age and that he did not appear to have any known underlying health issues, but sources close to him indicated that it was from natural causes.

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, his grieving widow sobbed: ‘There are no words to describe what has happened. I’m in shock and still trying to make sense of it’

Mystery still surrounds where Mr Chadha exactly died but it has been revealed that it was not at his central London residence.

Stuttee added: ‘I can’t tell you where he died because it’s a very personal matter.’

A source close to Mr Chadha revealed: ‘He did not die at his central London address but was at another location when it happened. We don’t know the full facts yet and are waiting to establish what exactly occurred.’

Accounts from Companies House up to December 31, 2019 reveal that his business, Nine Estates Limited, made £2.5million in revenue over the previous two years, with a £1.3million gross profit.

Among the hotels owned by Nine Group are the four-star London 02 Arena Hotel and four Holiday Inn franchises.

The firm also owns a pub – the Halt & Pull in Horley, Surrey – and recently struck a franchising deal with restaurant chain Pizza Hut.

Stuttee is being consoled by dozens of relatives and Mr Chadha’s parents, Gursharan, 61 and Jasbir, 58 at their luxurious country home in Iver, Buckinghamshire. 

Jasbir cried: ‘We are in total shock and it’s too early for us to say anything about Vivek and his achievements. There will come a time when we will pay tribute to him but at the moment, it’s too early for us. We are in too much pain.’

Mr Chadha divided his time between the family home in Buckinghamshire and London.

In 2015, Mr Chadha donated £100,000 for a Mahatma Gandhi statute in Parliament Square, an initiative that was backed by William Hague and George Osborne

Tributes and messages of condolences poured in following the news of Mr Chadha’s death 

He was a regular visitor to Conservative Party functions, rubbing shoulders with the likes of former Prime Ministers David Cameron and Theresa May.

In 2015, he donated £100,000 for a Mahatma Gandhi statute in Parliament Square, an initiative that was backed by William Hague and George Osborne.

In 2017, Mr Chadha won the ‘Rising Star’ award at the Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards in recognition of his work.

After graduating with a degree in civil engineering in 2010, he founded the Nine Group with his father in 2012, helping to establish it as one of the largest private hotel companies in the UK.

It now owns 18 hotels across the country and employs more than 800 people as well as having commercial and residential investments.
