A scion of a prominent art dealing dynasty, Hillel Nahmad (or “Helly” as he’s known to his friends), is the proprietor of the Helly Nahmad Gallery. He was charged with wire fraud and bankrolling a gambling conspiracy in April 2013 along with 33 others and was convicted and jailed for one year and one day in 2014. Nahmad has been photographed with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Miranda Kerr on many occasions and of the case against him, his father, David, commented: “I think it’s totally stupid”.
There should be a film about this man. Leonardo DiCaprio could be in it.
