The revelations about CBS Viacom mogul Sumner Redstone just keep coming. The latest is that the sex-starved nonagenarian once gave a flight attendant on the CBS corporate jet $18 million and then had sex with her sister, whom he gave $6 million. This is according to legal documents filed recently.
The sisters were just two of at least 11 women that Redstone showered with cash, according to Redstone's former girlfriend, 45-year-old Sydney Holland.
"Redstone gave tens of millions of dollars to various other women — who he had no intention of marrying and was not in love with — at the time he was engaged to marry Sydney. "Women who did nothing more than provide sexual favors." the Los Angeles Superior Court filing says.
Holland filed the documents in response to the lawsuit 93-year-old Redstone filed against her and another ex-girlfriend, Manuela Herzer, in October. That lawsuit accused the two women of emotionally abusing him and manipulating him into parting with his cash over a five-year period.
Holland is trying to make the point that she and Herzer should not be the only defendants in that lawsuit, as Redstone also gave tens of millions of dollars to a stable of other women during that same time frame, making the claim that Holland and Herzer had total control of his life more than a bit ridiculous. Giving cash to babes was Redstone's M.O.
Holland did not name names in the documents filed with the court but she has indicated that she may be forced to do so, and is also willing to call the media mogul's celebrity friends as witnesses to her claim.
Holland alleges that Redstone gave $21 million to an aspiring reality show producer and $6 million and a job at Showtime to a friend of his grandson's girlfriend.
Holland also drops not so subtle hints that the billionaire's sexual predilections are not conventional. The court documents state that there were "many other acts committed by Redstone and uncomfortable requests he made of Sydney that will not be detailed here."
Holland met Redstone in the fall of 2010 when they were set up by "The Millionaire Matchmaker" Patti Stanger. Their courtship involved expensive dinners out and long drives down the Pacific Coast Highway. Soon, Holland was Redstone's lover and caregiver. In exchange he agreed to take care of her financially for the rest of her life.
According to the filing, Redstone required that Holland be home for lunch and dinner with him seven days a week. She was also required to go to bed when he wanted to, whether or not she was tired. In exchange Redstone showered her with Hermes bags, jewelry, art, cash, and weekly bouquets of her favorite flowers.
But when Redstone found out about a short-lived affair Holland had, he kicked her out of his mansion and cut her off financially as well as had her removed from his trust.
Holland is seeking a reasonable sum per month, plus an amendment to Redstone's personal trust reinstating her as a beneficiary.
Holland also accuses Redstone's daughter Shari of blocking Holland from her father's life.
Sumner Redstone's attorneys call Holland's claims a work of fiction.
