The living god Ilan Tobianah makes appearances in the four corners of the World, between Monaco, Dubai and Paris, and fascinates users on socials.
Gods have always been a source of fascination and admiration since the dawn of time. In 2023, one of the most famous of these gods, namely Zeus, was resurrected to take over the web and create buzz on social medias. This mystical jet-setter – because we don’t really know who he is – makes the buzz evey time he’s hanging out on social networks on his Instagram or his TikTok. Everything suggests that he is a millionaire, perhaps even a billionaire. This is Riviera has decided to investigate to find out more about him…

Where does his fortune come from?
The Zeus we are talking about is obviously not the one who unleashes the storm and triggers the lightning. The one in question here rather unleashes passions on the net. We could define him as a content creator, because he apparently has nothing to sell, except dreams. And if he gets nicknamed like that, it’s because the guy looks exactly like the real Zeus that we see in the books. Like Khaby Lame, Zeus never speaks and maintains this image of inaccessible divinity. But what especially attracts attention is that the man seems to lead a life of luxury : Lamborghini, models, overpriced hotels, stays on the Riviera… In short, he does not skimp on the means to impress his followers and it works ! The man has more than 613,000 followers on Instagram, and more than 1,2 millions of followers on TikTok. The question that everyone is now asking is : Where does his fortune come from?
Curious as we are, we sought to find out more about him. Zeus is actually called Ilan Tobianah. He was born on November 22, 1971 in Paris, Ile-de-France, and is therefore 51 years old. He is a lawyer specializing in real estate law in Paris and has worked for Immobilier Moët et Associés since June 1999. In any case, this is what we can read on his LinkedIn profile. With more than 23 years in the business, and his position in a prestigious firm, it seems obvious that the businessman, a close friend of Jean-Pascal Lacoste (perhaps he was his lawyer), can afford the life he dreams of. But at a time when inventing a life is on the way to becoming an Olympic discipline, how not to doubt… Especially when you spend a little time reading the comments under the videos posted on your social networks. We quickly see that Internet users are skeptical…: « I think he inherited » or « It’s all wrong, he’s a poor guy who wants to make his way as an influencer ».
So we tried to contact him in person and we can tell you clearly: Ilan Tobianah is indeed a lawyer. This was confirmed to us by his partner. Maître Ilan Tobianah also appears on many official sites such as Public Auctions or on the official site of the Conseil National des Barreaux.
According to the site modelfact.com, the fortune of Zeus would amount to around 50 million dollars. These gains would come from various real estate investments, in addition to his work as a lawyer, of course. He would also be the head of a modeling agency and would earn more than 400,000 dollars a month just with this activity. He has already worked with female models like Lilia Gude, Mariana Martins, Margaux Heller, and Sandra Buczny (this would also explain why he is always very well surrounded…). Still according to the same site, the Greek deity owns several luxury cars, which can be found in particular in his videos on social networks: A black Lamborghini Avantador, an orange Lamborghini Avantador, a Lamborghini Urus, a Ferrari, a Delage D12 and a Ducati motorcycle.
We tried – many times – to contact him directly via his Instagram and finally managed to talk to him. During this informal interview with him, we learned that he was the father of two children. The man seems very keen on maintaining his private life and slightly overwhelmed by this large-scale craze around his character: “I have children and there are a lot of bad guys here. (…) 3 billion views have consequences…”.
What future for Zeus?
We asked him what the purpose of all this was, will the character of Zeus soon reveal something more concrete? His response was: “What is going to happen is going to be huge, people are not ready…”. By all means, we tried to get him to say more, but Zeus remains mysterious (and also very kind by the way). Our feelings after this discussion? We believe that Zeus will move towards an artistic performance related to music. Maybe DJ? Maybe singer or musician? What is certain is that the lawyer is a real music enthusiast and if you watch his videos, you will quickly find that tech house seems to be his favorite genre. We can also see him in a music studio in one of his latest videos posted on his Instagram page. Zeus will end our discussion by saying the following: “I am also a musical performer, soon…”.
Very soon, we will know more according to him, it is a certainty. Even if we do not know if he is really a billionaire, we can easily believe that his popularity rating will explode as a lawyer with such enthusiasm around his person. And then, between us, having such a handsome man as a lawyer, it helps, doesn’t it? We leave you with a pretty stunning edit made by KVN beatmaker which once again proves the indisputable fascination around this living god. To be continued…
