Gianluca Cervara contacted police fearing former 2013 Miss Ukraine Anna Zaiachkivska had been snatched.The billionaire businessman is reportedly suing her - after finding out on social media that she has fled to America after she vanished in July.
The 24-year-old model had married Mr Cervara in a registry office in December, and the couple were planning a formal church wedding this month.
But she had other plans, disappearing the day after posting:
'My amazing Gianluca Cervara, thank you that I can be your flower and part of the family.'.
She had claimed she was going to get some fresh air, Italian newspaper La Repubblica reports. Mr Cervara reported her disappearance to police after she failed to return to their home in Milan.
But he soon found social media photos of his new bride posing with another man in five-star hotels hashtagged with the word ‘freedom’ just months after marrying.
The devastated billionaire is now suing Zaiachkivska for breaking their prenuptial agreement and allegedly stealing £5,000 and a mobile phone from his home.
He wrote in a comment on the social media pictures:
“Your Husband in Milan And Parents say thank You for Be in New York with address Of another Man.Wooooow Married escape without Tell And with fake address in NewYork!!”
But Zaiachkivska claims she fled because her husband “raised his hands” against her and that she was sick of living in a “golden cage”.
The 24-year-old was also furious after Cervara did not pay her enough attention when she had “headaches for a week”.
I had headaches for a week but Gianluca did not care about it. Finally I decided I needed to make changes as I was fed up of living in a golden cage and I ran away.'
The model said:
“The first time when he did it I ran away to my parents’ house in the western Ukrainian city of Ivano-Frankivsk. I did not tell them what the matter was.
“He came to get me, and I gave him a second chance, but during an argument he spat in my face, and I simply could not take it.”
