Heidi and Leni are an adorable mother and daughter! (seen here leaving The Ivy)
I know it can seem like a lot of Heidi posts! Perhaps this site will explode when Heidi has her third baby! The photos of Heidi and her brood are certainly aplenty, but info regarding little Leni’s biological father, 56-year-old Flavio Briatore is quite scant. He is an Italian playboy of considerable wealth and is a Formula One Boss (I have absolutely no idea what it means to be a Formula One Boss….and yes, I know that it has to do with racing sporty vehicles). Quite interestingly, he was involved in bringing Benetton to the United States…and became quite wealthy from that business endeavor. Hmmm….what more to say, except that he sounds like an insensitive man (as evidenced by Flavio insisting that Heidi give birth in Germany, rather than the US which would mean that he would be liable for much more child support. Heidi split from Flavio after discovering that he was having an affair with a 19-year-old model. “I can understand Mr. Briatore having fears about the child being born in America where justice gives all the rights to the mother. It is a financial paradise for single mothers in such situations,” stated a lawyer. It is thought that Flavio was keen to settle the situation with a one-off payment rather than monthly maintenance. “I cannot believe how badly this man has behaved,” said Heidi’s 63-year-old aunt, Erna. “He has broken poor Heidi’s heart. He has behaved like a real bastard towards her).
He seems to have never emerged from his own midlife crisis…and is perhaps another sad example of viagra-induced insanity! As suggested by the following pic it could be said that Flavio is perhaps a bit of a ladies-man.
Whatever can be said about him, he and Heidi had a beautiful daughter together!
