German Lady+Swiss Gigolo = Blackmail



Photo Courtesy:-BGNES

There is no dearth of bizarre news in the world. And here I am presenting a news-story that might propel you to react. Susanne Klatten, who is considered the richest woman of Germany, recently hit the headlines due to her own faults. Klatten, an heiress to carmaker BMW's fortune, was blackmailed for millions of Euro by a Swiss lover, who threatened to release their secretly filmed sex videos. The Swiss gigolo Helg Sgarbis had started an affair with the German lady in 2006. Klatten, who owns a 50% stake of chemical firm Altana and 12.5% stake in BMW, has already paid EUR 7.5 million to Sgarbis last year. According to media reports, this gigolo had already spent that amount on Egyptian real estate and exotic cars, including a Rolls-Royce Silver. However, he still demanded 40 million more form this lady, who had approached Munich prosecutors over the matter, saying that she was a victim of fraud and blackmail. Following her complaint, Sgarbi and his accomplice, Ernano Barretta of Italy were arrested, thanks to a joint Italian-German police operation. But the question is why she started an affair with a gigolo, who finally blackmailed her ? Perhaps only she knows the truth…..

I don't see it as strange at all, the things women do to feel loved has no limit. Even if it seems as a really bad idea at the time, many women push the doubts to the side and go ahead and do it anyways.

Loneliness can play terrible tricks, even on the wealthiest.
Of course, what she paid to this gigolo is outrageous!

Come on... its always lonely at the top. Rich men have been doing it since time immemorial - having sex/relationship with younger and poorer women - now women are catching up.

She prolly paid up to avoid this kinda publicity.

Dear Silly, please notice my first line that the story might propel you to react and you reacted...

She is stupid ! Why did she let herself get blackmailed ? She is old enough to know what she is doing and why not a video with a gigolo !

Some people are never satisfied with their sex lives or the amount of money they have. They try to get more.

Dear humanobserver, i've noticed your first line, but reacted to your last ones :"But the question is why she started an affair with a gigolo, who finally blackmailed her ? Perhaps only she knows the truth…"
I dun think she knows... i think she had no idea what she's gettin' herself into, but if she did... would she have started this affair still?... the answer to this one i would like to know.

Oh oh and was she already married when she met the gigolo? Sounds like a lot of paperback novels I used to read.
