An Italian princess who formerly modeled for Playboy has been forced out of her $533 million Rome mansion after a dispute with her stepchildren.
On Thursday, Princess Rita Jenrette Boncompagni Ludovisi was evicted from the historic home where Caravaggio painted the lone known ceiling, forcing her to take her four bichon frise puppies in a taxi.
The 73-year-old lady said that she had been “brutally kicked out” of her home. She and her husband, Nicol Boncompagni Ludovisi, have “lovingly taken care” of the structure for the past two decades.
She wed the prince in 2009, but following his death in 2018, she faced accusations that she had stolen his riches and allowed the Villa Aurora to fall into disrepair from his children from a previous marriage.
A court ruled that Princess Rita, the third wife of the man who owned the most expensive mansion in the world, was responsible for the collapse of an exterior wall, even though photographs indicated that the wall was still standing.
Texas native and former Playboy model Rita Carpenter was escorted from her home by Carabinieri officers as locksmiths replaced the locks.
She released a video on YouTube before being evicted in which she declared, “It’s illegal.” It’s a terrible waste of time that the narrative has to conclude like this.
He replied, “It could have turned out differently.” The meaning of this escapes me. Because I am a woman and a citizen of the United States, I am told.
What they’re doing is so incredibly wrong it beyond explanation. Money is the driving factor, of course.
Some of the Princessa’s personal belongings were reportedly left behind because she just had 30 minutes to pack.
She and her late husband spent nearly 20 years repairing the structure. On the premises, they discovered a library with 150,000 previously unpublished works.
Students at the undergraduate level have entered the electronic record. Twenty-five previously unseen letters between Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette are among the highlights, along with extensive financial data for the Boncompagni and Ludovisi dynasties.
Gregory XIII Boncompagni (1572–1855) and Gregory XV Ludovisi (1592–1616) were the subjects of a course developed in collaboration with Rutgers University.
