Delusional Old Fool Sues Dancer Who Allegedly Conned Him into Buying Her a Manhattan Condo
An aging and apparently delusional theater director has made the costly mistake of believing a lithe young dancer had looked past his ear and nostril hair, bad breath, and receding gums and hairline to fall in love with the virile and artistic genius (read: sugar daddy) that he has always believed himself to be.
Cue the lawyers.
Now the doddering old fool is suing the former object of his affection, claiming she conned him into buying her a nice little Manhattan condo for $775,000.
According to the New York Daily News, “Natasha Diamond-Walker, a stunning 27-year-old Fordham University grad, is accused in court papers of feigning love for prominent Italian theater director Antonio Calenda, then tricking him into footing the bill for the pre-war apartment.”
“She manipulated our client and took advantage of him to finance her purchase of a luxury Manhattan apartment,” Calenda’s lawyer told the Daily News. “She never had any intentions to repay our client and she abruptly severed their relationship as soon as she got what she wanted.”
Judicial Hellholes reporters don’t per se condone gold-digging, regardless of age, gender or sexual preference. But if an old fool is so easily parted from his money, others should be exercising his power of attorney. He ought not be running around loose.
In any case, a 73-year-old’s egomaniacal belief that a 27-year-old could be interested in something other than his money and what he might be able to do for her career doesn’t square with his subsequent and pathetic resort to a lawsuit. Either you’re a suave international ladies’ man, Antonio, able to take care of yourself and make sound judgments when chasing tight little tutus. Or you’re a feeble incompetent who had no business getting involved with a mean chorus girl in the first place, much less shamelessly turning to a U.S. court to protect you after-the-fact. You can’t be both, Antonio, so which is it? Cool or fool?
