Poor little girl. Oh, you were not what was desired, but that makes you no less dear to me. A boy would have been the Son of France, but you, Marie Thérèse, shall be mine.
Porfirio Rubirosa married his fourth wife, American heiress Barbara Hutton, in 1953. Hutton wore black and carried a scotch and soda down the aisle.
Rubirosa’s ex-girlfriend Zsa Zsa Gabor told newspaper reporters she gave the marriage six months and that in a couple of weeks “this man will be after me again.”
Rubirosa and Hutton separated after 53 days.
In the settlement Rubirosa received a coffee plantation in the Dominican Republic, polo ponies, 2.5 million dollars in cash, and a B-52 plane.
Rubirosa promptly flew the plane West to win back Gabor.
