An Italian rich banker’s speech has gone viral after he accused his fiancé of cheating on him at an extravagant engagement party. Massimo Segre, a 64-year-old banker, and Domani newspaper board member, stepped up to make toast at a banquet hosted at his Turin estate last week. His engagement with entrepreneur Cristina Seymandi, 47, was celebrated with 150 high society guests during the occasion.
What Mr. Segre Said in His Speech
“I want to give Cristina the freedom to love,” Mr Segre said in his address, which he wrote in the form of a letter, according to The Sunday Times’ “Specifically, to love another person; a notable lawyer, who she clearly cares about more than me.”
“Dear Cristina, I know how much you are in love with him mentally and sexually,” he added. “And I know that before him you had a relationship with an industrialist acquaintance.”
“And I know that before him, you were in a relationship with a well-known industrialist. Do not think that I am pleased to look like a cuckold in front of all of you,” he said.
He Also Accused Ms Seymandi of Deceiving Him and Turning Him Against His Other Children from A Previous Marriage
He also accused Ms Seymandi of deceiving him and turning him against his other children from a previous marriage.
“She is so good at telling her truths, that I could not let her be the only one to explain why I am ending our relationship tonight,”he explained.
“Dear Cristina, go to Mykonos with your lawyer. Be happy with him, it’s all paid for, just like the trip to Vietnam.”
The speech’s shaky video has gone popular on the internet. Ms Seymandi can be seen in the video looking shocked as her fiance delivers the speech before walking away.
The Pair Had Been Engaged for Three Years
“When he started talking, I thought it was a joke. Then I was petrified. It was an act of abhorrent violence.” Ms Seymandi told the Italian daily Il Corriere della Sera.
“Not to mention the comments on social networks with obscene words and phrases. If the same thing had happened but with the roles reversed, the reactions would have been very different. But I am a woman, and in this world, that makes a big difference.”
