These guys have serious problems controlling their women.
Of course, Donald Sterling has trouble with V. Stivano.
Rupert Murdoch caught his ex-wife Wendi Deng shacking up with Tony Blair.
A George Soros ex-girlfriend is suing him.
And Sumner Redstone, the largest shareholder in CBS and Viacom is the latest with woman problems. NyPo reports:
Sumner Redstones live-in girlfriend, Sydney Holland, is a control freak... . Redstone, the majority owner of CBS and Viacom, is being dragged into a bitter court battle between Holland and his former protegee Heather Naylor.
Holland, 43, is suing Naylor, 33, for $1 million claiming the star of the short-lived MTV show The Electric Barbarellas stole her laptop computer containing private and confidential photographs.
That usually means X-rated.
Naylor countersued, charging that Holland used her influence, as she took control of Redstones life, to get the show canceled.
Redstone is 91 and worth $6.2 billion.
edstone reportedly pushed MTV execs to air the show about a girl group described as a cross between the Pussycat Dolls and the Spice Girls, but raunchier and gave Naylor $157,000 worth of Viacom stock.
In motions filed Friday, Naylors pit bull lawyer Neville Johnson states, Because Holland is a beneficiary under Redstones will, she did not like that Redstone was spending his time and his resources with a free thinker like Naylor.
Court papers state that Holland grew jealous of Naylors relationship with Redstone and made efforts to cut off all ties between Redstone and Naylor so that Holland could control Redstone for her own economic advantage.
Holland allegedly had all the phone numbers changed so Naylor couldnt reach Redstone and all of Naylors contacts removed from Redstones database so that he couldnt reach her, a source familiar with the case told me.
These boys need to take some lessons from J. Paul Getty, once the world's richest man, who kept a dozen, or so, women floating around him. One for his cultural tastes, one for his intellectual pursuits etc.. In his will he left them only on average about $500,000 each. From PEOPLE:
After his death last month at the age of 83, it was disclosed that a dozen women he had loved, was charmed by or did business with would share in his multimillion-dollar estate...The largest personal bequest5,000 shares of Getty oil stock valued at $826,500 and $1,167 a month for lifewent to Penelope Ann Kitson, 53, an English interior decorator and mother of three. Recently divorced from her third husband, industrialist Patrick De Laszlo, tall, elegant Penelope Kitson was constantly at Getty's side during his final weeks...
Penelope's closest rival, in terms of inheritance, is Mary Teissier, 50, a Russian-born French interior decorator and art expert. She was willed 2,500 shares valued at $413,250 plus $750 a month for life. "The last few years," she says of Getty, "were very close, very sweet and very generous. Don't try to make a romance out of that. He was as old as my father!" ...
Getty left 1,000 shares worth $165,000 to widowed Lady Ursula d'Abo, 59, a celebrated prewar society beauty he had known 22 years. She shared his interest in gardening and served as a sometime hostess at Getty's parties where guests ranged from French esthetes to Oklahoma wildcatters.
Rosabella Burch, 42, a Nicaraguan widow who was one of Getty's companions for the last 15 years of his life, received $82,625 in stock....
Oddly enough, only one of Getty's five ex-wives was mentioned in his will: Louise Lynch Getty of Santa Monica, once a professional singer, who received $55,000 per year for life.
He bestowed lesser amounts on an astonishing variety of women about whom little is known: Countess Marianne von Alvensleben, 54, of Düsseldorf, West Germany; Karin Mannhardt (another German); Hildegard Kuhn, 69, of West Berlin; Gloria Bigelow of Los Angeles; Mary Maginnis of Malibu and Belene Clifford of West Covina.
Getty also claimed that Aristotle Onassis knew how to deal with difficult women. According to Getty, Ted Kennedy was severely outmatched by Onassis when he met with Onassis to hammer out the financial arrangements for Jackie's marriage to him.
Getty reported that, among other things, in his will Onasis left half of his yacht to Jackie and the other half to his daughter. The yacht required a massive staff for upkeep. It was a tremendous financial drain that Jackie couldn't do anything about, other than pay the bills, because of her only half ownership. Getty claimed that Onassis knew exactly what a financial knot he was leaving Jackie in when he negotiated with Ted.
As best I can tell, it seems that as far as modern day tycoons, Warren Buffett is closest to handling women in the manner Getty did. He is married but seems to have a number of other women floating around his place---and he doesn't seem to have the women problems that Murdoch, Sterling et al., have come up against.
i think it proves that if you have a woman problem the solution is NOT to get involved with yet more women.
They stayed around him for love......of money.
When you become a billionaire you also become a target of “major league” gold diggers.
Go undercover and find a girl who actually like you when she doesn’t know you are filthy rich. That’s my plan.
Hasn’t worked so far and I’m tired of pretending to be rich ‘pretending’ to be poor.
After his death last month at the age of 83, it was disclosed that a dozen women he had loved, was charmed by or did business with would share in his multimillion-dollar estate...
Worth noting that Getty died in 1976. This PEOPLE article must be quite old. Also, the dollar amounts meant more 40 years ago.
At some point science will make human females irrelevant to men.
How about if you just pay them to hang around as living art?
Seems all these Billionaires are also huge LIBERALS
doubtful... might be the other way around
Don’t date whores of Babylon.
you don’t think employees have ever caused employers problems? that live in nanny just became a squatter this week.
Not employees.... just contractors. lol
A problem “controlling” “their” women?
I often wonder what happens if I ever found myself with billions of dollars. Women would be falling off trees for me. Why these guys marry or get involved with them is beyond my comprehension. If you’re going to get a young hot babe who is attracted to your billions you may as well hire professional prostitutes. I think it was Charlie Sheen who said “I don’t pay them to stay, I pay them to go away.”
This is exactly why I choose not to be a billionaire.
Women need love and romance, male excitement, and human complications, not a device.
Men are the opposite, a pretty female who cooks, cleans and is sexually perfect, WITHOUT, the female complications will do just fine for most men.
In other words, a Tomboy.
The big head makes the money, the small head gives it away.
I don’t understand what that means.
Where did a Tomboy fit in?
