Lynsi Torres, the subject of a recent Bloomberg Businessweek profile, is the youngest female billionaire in the U.S.

She's the owner and president of the cultishly beloved California-based burger chain In-N-Out Burger, founded by her grandparents in 1948 and now worth about $1.1 billion.

Though Torres is incredibly secretive, Bloomberg managed to unearth juicy details about Torres' dramatic personal life as part of its series on hidden billionaires.

Torres rose through the ranks of her grandparents' lucrative business after her uncle died in a plane crash and father died of a drug overdose. After her mother's death in 2006, the then 23-year-old Torres took over the chain through a trust. She received half ownership of the company when she turned 30. She will receive the other half at 35.

Torres has been married three times, for the first time at age 17, and later to a minister. Her third and current husband is drag racer Val Torres Jr, who shares Lynsi's love of motor sports.
