As it turns out this Prince Von Anhalt may not be exactly on the up and up. This is a shocking claim, just shocking.
Here are a few notes on the latest:
His out-of-left-field assertion has been met largely with disbelief and boosted curiosity about the man who, the British press reports, may have paid a bankrupt princess for his title. He denies those reports. Even his age has been questioned. He says he’s 59; the German press puts him in his mid 70s.
He acknowledges making millions of dollars by passing the family title to at least 10 other people. “If someone offers you $2 million, you do it,” von Anhalt says.
Okay, sure, he’s had a few things that don’t ring of “truthiness” but there is no way he’d seek publicity in such a brazen way. What could he possibly gain? Besides the $2 million per title I mean.
