Gianluca Cervara contacted police fearing former Miss Ukraine Anna Zaiachkivska had been snatched.
But he soon found social media photos of his new bride posing with another man in five-star hotels hashtagged with the word ‘freedom’ just months after marrying.
The devastated billionaire is now suing Zaiachkivska for breaking their prenuptial agreement and allegedly stealing £5,000 and a mobile phone from his home, Mirror reports.
He wrote in a comment on the social media pictures:
“Your Husband in Milan And Parents say thank You for Be in New York with address Of
another Man.Wooooow Married escape without Tell And with fake address in NewYork!!”
But Zaiachkivska claims she fled because her husband “raised his hands” against her and that she was sick of living in a “golden cage”.
The 24-year-old was also furious after Cervara did not pay her enough attention when she had “headaches for a week”
The model said:
Furious Cervara hit back telling reporters that his wife is working as a model in New York and she is “not the person she is pretending to be”.
“The first time when he did it I ran away to my parents’ house in the western Ukrainian city of Ivano-Frankivsk. I did not tell them what the matter was.
“He came to get me, and I gave him a second chance, but during an argument he spat in my face, and I simply could not take it.”
The businessman said: “She has lots of pretty photos taken in five-star hotels, she is posing with other men. She does not look unhappy at all.”
