Biography

Miller grew up in Southern Rhodesia (modern Zimbabwe) with her parents, a twin sister and a brother. By the age of 24, she was a successful fashion model in Britain. She was known for being one of the "beautiful people" and for getting whatever she wanted easily. In 1974, she met Hunt in Spain. He proposed to her only weeks later, and they were married the same year. The wedding, which took place in Kensington, was considered the "society wedding of the year", and the couple were considered "one of the sporting world's most happily married couples."

The couple spent their honeymoon in Antigua with one of Hunt's close friends, also newly married, and then settled in Spain for "tax reasons." Later, Miller described feeling that Hunt's career came ahead of everything else in his life. He was also frequently unfaithful and the marriage foundered.

In December 1975, Burton met Miller at a Swiss ski resort and invited her to return to New York with him. Their relationship developed quickly and Burton left Elizabeth Taylor for Miller. Burton allegedly paid Hunt one million US dollars as part of the divorce settlement between Hunt and Miller.

Miller claimed that part of the reason she initially became involved with Burton was so that she could make Hunt jealous. Miller divorced Hunt in Haiti in June 1976. After her divorce from Hunt, she and Burton had a honeymoon of sorts, and were married in August 1976 in Arlington, Virginia, U.S.A. During their marriage, Miller was reported to be jealous of Burton's ex-wife Taylor. The marriage between Burton and Miller ended in their 1982 divorce, which was settled in Haiti.
