Rise to Stardom

While the details about Robie Uniacke’s early career as a businessman or his reputation as a ‘mathematical researcher’ are unknown, he has been through a number of broken relationships. This was revealed after he began dating actress Rosamund Pike in 2009. Uniacke has managed to keep a low profile, except for occasional outings with Pike and their children.

Personal Life

Robie Uniacke was born in 1961 in the UK and was educated at Eton College in Windsor, England. He has had an interest in mathematics since childhood and is fluent in Mandarin.


Uniacke’s first marriage was to Emma Howard, the daughter of the late Earl of Carlisle, in 1983 when he was 22 years old. They had one son together, but the marriage was unhappy and ended due to serious heroin addiction. He then married interior designer Rose Batstone and they had three children together. Unfortunately, this marriage also did not last long. Uniacke’s daughter, Olive, is a close friend of actor Daniel Radcliffe.

Uniacke began dating Rosamund Pike in late 2009. Pike had previously been in relationships with film director Joe Wright and actor Simon Woods. She was drawn to Uniacke because he was “the most interesting person I’ve ever come across.” Uniacke is known for being articulate and ruthless about the roles Pike takes on and helps keep her tendency to “imagine there is more on the page than there is” in check. The couple has been together for almost a decade and has two sons together.

Controversies & Scandals

In May 2018, as Pike’s film ‘Entebbe’ was released, Uniacke became entangled in financial issues. He was disqualified as a company director after admitting to a number of offences during the investigation into the collapse of his company, Pale Fire Ltd. He also failed to pay a total of £179,602 in taxes to HMRC. The liquidator’s report stated that his dissolved company’s account was overdrawn by £133,000 and that he had no other income or assets except for an offer of £25,000 ‘in full and final settlement of the overdrawn…account…by a third party’. Uniacke admitted to making no payments to HMRC since July 2012, despite receiving £260,508 in his account during the next couple of years. He used £144,060 of that money for personal use, £10,514 on mobile phones, and £25,154 on other payments and bank charges.
