A one-legged Romanian millionaire claims he is a "sex magnet" who women find irresistible.
That seems to be true of his wife who has gone into the record books for marrying and divorcing him six times.
Now she has left 50-year-old Silviu Prigoana again and it remains to be seen whether Adriana Bahmuteanu, 39, will ever make it up the altar with him for a seventh time.
Silviu is hardly wasting time sweet talking her back. On Monday, when it was learned that they are splitsville once more, he said: "When it comes to sex, the woman who could refuse me has not yet been born.
"However, women always find reasons to neglect me, but that wasn’t the case with Adriana. If she wants, she can leave, she can do whatever she wants. She called me a filthy bastard, but she came back so many times I figure I can't be that much of a filthy bastard. I won’t kick her out of the house, but if she wants to leave, what can I do?"
The former politician, who lost his leg to childhood polio, said Adriana used to receive "royal treatment" when at his side.
He said he gave her gifts worth tens of thousands of euros. "I don’t know why she was unhappy. I got her over 50 purses and none costed less than 1,000 euros (800 GBP). I got her 7,000 euro (5,600 GBP) watches, even some 15,000 euro (12,000 GBP) ones. I do not know where they are, they’re not in my house. Many women would have loved to be in Adriana’s spot", he said.
Silviu is a Romanian businessman who owns Rosal Group, a waste collection company. He is also the founder of several TV stations, one of which only broadcasts gypsy music videos (Taraf TV, like a gypsy MTV) and is worth 30 million EUR, according to Forbes Romania.
In 2010, he attempted to pass a bill that was supposed to force so-called gypsy witches to pay tax for their services of predicting the future for people. It didn't pass.
