Male model Patrick Ribbsaeter stands accused of attempting to strangle a Saudi Arabian princess's driver after the princess dumped him, the Daily Mail reports. On Wednesday, a court heard the case that began with the breakup of Ribbsaeter and Sara Al-Amoudi who found him with other women in London. Last September, when Al-Amoudi called things off:
Ribbsaeter, 30, is alleged to have lunged at Miss Al-Amoudi as she slept. At this point her driver Sarkis Tokatlian stepped in to stop him, giving him a bloody nose, but Ribbsaeter smashed a wine glass and stabbed the driver six times in his face before beginning to strangle him, a jury was told.
The prosecutor called Ribbsaeter, "violent, he's vain, he's egocentric. He's also, I suggest, a liar and prone to exaggeration." Another adjective thrown around was "gold-digger."
The Calvin Klein, Armani, Gucci and Christian Dior model has a prior conviction in his native country Sweden for strangling another ex-girlfriend. There's no word yet on any verdict in the current case.
