A BILLIONAIRE Russian dating app mogul has spent £145million on a penthouse and neighbouring flats at the former US embassy in London. Andrey Andreev, 47, is behind love-match services Badoo and Bumble. It is thought he will spend millions more turning the properties into one home in Grosvenor Square, Mayfair. Since Badoo launched in 2006, it has become the world's most popular dating app, with more than 500million users. Andreev sold his stake in MagicLab, which owned Badoo and Bumble , in 2019 in a deal valued at about £2.2billion. Grosvenor Square, a five-minute stroll from Hyde Park, was dubbed "Little America" during World War Two.
