Lilian Betencourt, the richest woman in the world, Lilian Betancourt, the heir to the French beauty giant L'Oreal, died at the age of 94, according to a statement from her family.
The family said in a statement that Lilian died in her home "quietly and peacefully" during the night.
According to official estimates, her exclusive wealth reached 40 billion dollars this year, 2017, and was ranked first by the richest woman in the world.
Lillian has abandoned her position on the company's board of directors since 2012, although she seldom appeared on public occasions, but she did the news after her name was received in a major abuse case after being diagnosed with dementia.
"Liliane Bettencourt was highly appreciated by all, because she was always interested in Crystal, the company and its employees as well, and had a role in its success and development," the company's president and chief executive Jean-Paul Agon said in a statement.
"She has personally taken part in the success of the company for many years, and we have been left with a great woman in the world of beauty and we will never forget it."
The year 2007 saw a crisis and a public conflict between the heirs of L'Oreal and her daughter Françoise Betencourt Myers.
Francoise has filed a lawsuit after fears that her mother is being abused by her surroundings as her health deteriorates.
In 2008, photographer François Marie Bagni, friend of Lillian Bettencourt, received hundreds of millions of dollars in gifts, including paintings by Picasso and an island of 670 acres in Seychelles.
The daughter said she had taken legal action against the cameraman after the staff told her at her mother's home that there were allegations of her intention to adopt it.
The relationship between mother and daughter returned to normal in 2010, and a French judge ordered the mother to be placed under the care of her family because of the deterioration of her health.
But the case of exploitation has been exacerbated at this time into a political scandal, after charges of financial director for Amet Bettencourt, Patrice de Mister, that he received funds to fund the election campaign of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy in 2007.
The alleged illegal financing of Sarkozy, All the charges were always denied, and French investigators dropped all charges in 2013.
The rest of the exploitation case was resolved in May after eight people, including photographer Banye, were convicted and forced to pay millions of dollars for the damage to the family.
All of Pitncour's assets, including its stake in the global cosmetic company, are under the management of her daughter.
Her father, Eugene Schuilar, founded a hair dye company in 1909, which later became the giant L'Oreal group, the world's largest cosmetic company.
