George Soros, noted hedge fund manager and don juan, who undoubtedly spent just as much time teaching his son about investing as he did educating him in the fine art of lady lassoing, is probably more than a little upset this morning. Disappointed at best, downright pissed at worst. Did Robert learn nothing under his father's tutelage? Is is possible he forgot or just flagrantly disregarded Rule No. 127b from the handbook George gave him on his 10th birthday that says thou shalt not book the wife on the same flight as the new girlfriend?
George Soros’ eldest son Robert’s messy, multimillion-dollar divorce has taken a nasty turn after he callously canoodled with his new girlfriend in front of his estranged wife on an eight-hour flight from Venice, Italy. Robert — president of the $28 billion firm Soros Fund Management — filed for divorce from his wife of 22 years, photographer and filmmaker Melissa Schiff, in May last year in Manhattan Supreme Court. The couple, who have two college-age children, have since been battling over money and the language in their two-decades-old prenup...One witness told us: “Robert and Jamie were openly affectionate for the entire flight, while they knew Melissa was seated five or six rows behind. Melissa had to endure 8 ¹/₂ hours of this behavior all the way back to New York. She didn’t make a scene, but it was uncomfortable for her and for others in the business-class cabin who were appalled by his brazen behavior.” [...] Melissa’s powerhouse attorney, Bernard Clair, declined to comment, except to say, “These types of antics will make it much harder to privately resolve this divorce out of court.”
Come on, Bobby! Use your head.
