Gianna Lahainer

“One-time secretary” Gianna Lahainer hit gold when she married a Palm Beach real estate tycoon named Frank Lahainer. He “indulged her every whim” and she is said to have a 25-carat engagement ring from Harry Winston, a white Rolls-Royce Corniche, a 32-carat sapphire, and a 26-carat emerald. When he died of leukemia and left her £240 million ($300 million, €283 million or درهم‎‎1.1 billion) in the in the middle of the Palm Beach party season in 1995, she delayed his funeral for 40 days until all the galas were over. Justifying storing his body for such a long period this “good friend of Donald Trump” remarked: “He was 90. I am 60. So why should I wait? I would miss the season”. She has married again since.
