    In the wake of the horrific terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, which left a death toll of more than 350, it's been revealed that Anders Holch Povlsen, the billionaire shareholder behind ASOS, tragically lost three of his four children.

    The bombings targeted both churches and hotels in Colombo, Sri Lanka, and Holch Povlsen was reportedly on vacation there with his family. The Danish entrepreneur, who's worth over $5 billion, is the largest single party shareholder in the popular online retailer ASOS, and is the CEO of fashion brand Bestseller. He's also one of the U.K.'s biggest landowners, with more than 200,000 acres of Scottish Highlands which he and his wife plan to preserve.
