Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has turned to Hollywood as he hit the red carpet for the 2023 Golden Globes.

The 49-year-old American, who also owns the Los Angeles Dodgers, is normally seen watching his teams from the stands, but on Tuesday he was seen walking the same carpet as some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.

It comes after Boehly quit his role as Chelsea’s interim sporting director and overseeing their summer spending worth £270million.

Boehly had a busy 2022 after completing a £4.25bn takeover of Chelsea from Roman Abramovich in May. 

Months later he also became the owner of the Golden Globes, after the Hollywood Foreign Press Association voted to transfer ownership of the award show to his company, Eldridge Industries. 

The move was done to save the Golden Globes, with Eldridge creating a new for-profit private company to acquire the rights for all of the Golden Globes’ intellectual property.  

It comes after Chelsea owner Boehly resigned from his role as sporting director at the club

Boehly though has one less job to do though after stepping down as Chelsea’s interim sporting director.  

The Blues co-owner gave himself the position after the exits of Marina Granovskaia and Petr Cech last summer, and he has since led transfer negotiations at the west London club.

Despite emptying his pockets on £270million worth of new acquisitions including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Raheem Sterling, Marc Cucurella, Kalidou Koulibaly and Wesley Fofana last summer, Chelsea find themselves 10th in the league, 10 points adrift of Manchester United in fourth.

After hiring a new recruitment team to oversee negotiations, Boehly has stepped down from the position and will just continue as chairman at Stamford Bridge.

Boehly and his co-owner Behdad Eghbali will still take part in Chelsea’s spending, but Paul Winstanley, who was appointed as the club’s director of global talent and transfers, and new technical director Christopher Vivell will now be tasked with leading the Blues’ recruitment strategy.

Chelsea are having a busy January window with Joao Felix expected to join the club on loan

Last week, the pair were pictured alongside Chelsea’s new star Benoit Badiashile, who agreed a seven-year deal with the club following his £35million move from Monaco.

The west London club are in the market for a right-back to deputise for injured star defender Reece James, and the recruitment team would also like to bolster Graham Potter’s squad with a new midfielder and wide forward.

Meanwhile, Joao Felix arrived in London on a private jet with his girlfriend to complete a medical ahead of a £9m half-season loan from Atletico Madrid.
