Allegations of harem against the old King of Spain
Ex-lover opens up about Juan Carlos
Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein and Juan Carlos had an affair for five years. Now the businesswoman is opening up about her romance – and leaving the former King of Spain with no hair. She even filed a lawsuit against him.
Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein spoke openly about her romance with Juan Carlos in her podcast.
Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein (58) settles accounts with Juan Carlos (84). The German businessman had an affair with the old king of Spain between 2004 and 2009. He spent a lot of time with zu Sayn-Wittgenstein at Finca La Angorilla, while his wife Sofia, 84, stayed at Zarzuela Palace.
“He discovered a new way of life, enjoying normality,” zu Sayn-Wittgenstein says in his podcast “Corinna and the King”. But Juan Carlos didn’t just cheat on his wife with her. “He didn’t just lead a double life, but a five-fold one! And I certainly wasn’t interested in being part of a harem, »explains the former lover. He allegedly had around 5,000 affairs.
“You Could Die Like Princess Diana”
So in 2009, she pulled the trigger, which Juan Carlos didn’t like at all. They were said to have been terrorized by the former king. The monarch involved the then head of the Spanish secret service CNI Félix Sanz Roldán (77) and several agents in his former affair. Between 2012 and 2014, they followed her and broke into her.
They even allegedly threatened her with death. One morning she woke up to find someone standing over her bed. The stranger announced, “You could die like Princess Diana.” Princess Diana (1961-1997) was killed in an accident in a Paris tunnel with her partner Dodi Al-Fayed (1955-1997) and their driver Henri Paul (1956-1997). While fleeing from the paparazzi, the driver crashed into a pole with the car at high speed.
Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein sued
Corinna zu Sayn Wittgenstein is now taking legal action against her former romance. She filed suit against Juan Carlos in her adopted home in London. He denies the accusation. His lawyers appealed. The court had previously allowed the trial, ruling that the old king could not invoke immunity. Regarding the current procedure, Corinna zu Sayn Wittgenstein told the “Bild” newspaper: “I hope this case will set a precedent for the protection of women who are abused by powerful men.” (bsn)
