The Italian prince Giacomo Bonanno di Linguaglossa sued his Belarusian beloved for "extorting gifts"



51-year-old Italian prince Giacomo Bonanno di Linguaglossa has started a legal battle against his beloved, 35-year-old Tatyana Yaschenko from Belarus. The man claims that she extorted hundreds of thousands of euros in gifts from him. This development of the affair in high society is no longer unique in itself, and yet there are unexpected moments in this story, which the Times writes. So, Yashchenko had previously filed a lawsuit against the prince, and he himself, despite the lawsuit filed, claims that he loves Tatyana. We understand the details of this secular affair.

Giacomo Bonanno di Linguaglossa met Tatyana Yashchenko in 2019 at a dinner party, and the couple began an affair. In December last year, the man filed a lawsuit against Tatyana, saying that she simply "spun" him for expensive gifts. In his lawsuit, he refers to the fact that he was traumatized by the breakup of his previous marriage and therefore could not make reasonable decisions. He claims that Yaschenko took advantage of his psychological state and wants her to return all the gifts he bought her.

The Italian aristocrat claims that he took Tatiana on trips around the world, together they visited Monte Carlo, Dubai and the Maldives, among other things. According to the Times, it is known that Giacomo also gave her a Mercedes worth more than $90,000, a $65,000 share in a hotel in Rome, expensive jewelry and more than $20,000 so that Yaschenko could rent an apartment in the center of Rome. In total, as expected, Giacomo spent more than 500 thousand dollars on gifts for his beloved. But, according to some reports, the amount may exceed one million dollars. The size of the general condition of the aristocrat was not mentioned in the press.

However, Tatyana herself filed a lawsuit against her lover back in March last year. According to Italian media reports, she became disillusioned with the relationship and claimed that di Linguaglossa was stalking her. Yashchenko even hired a psychiatrist to testify on her behalf against the aristocrat and substantiate her complaints, but the expert switched sides and now claims that the prince is a victim and that Tatyana "took advantage of his psychological fragility," according to Il Messaggero.

It was also reported that Yashchenko sent messages to the prince, in which she called him "a dishonest, deceitful traitor, devoid of sympathy, and also mediocre."

However, despite mutual claims, there was no break in relations. According to Il Messaggero, the couple spent Christmas and New Year together. And the prince even told reporters that he still loves Tatiana.

I would like to publicly apologize to my partner Tanya for my false statements.

Whether the lawsuit will now be withdrawn remains to be seen.
