This story has everything: Male escorts! Cocaine! Sports Cars! Italian billionaires! Yes, Lapo Elkann is back in action, showing all those other party boys how to make decadence great again. How? Elkann — Fiat heir and the best dressed man in automotive — was arrested in New York this past weekend for allegedly faking his own kidnapping, according to The Daily Beast.
Of course, the story is incredible. How could it be otherwise? Let me tell you, Elkann never disappoints.
An NYPD source told The Beast that Elkann arrived in the city Thursday night, hooked up with a 29-year old make escort, and they “holed themselves up inside a Manhattan housing project” where they began throwing down alcohol, marijuana and cocaine.
Well, that’s a start. Hard to believe a guy who looks like Elkann would need to pay an escort, let alone someone to party with in New York. Hasn’t he been to The Box? Or Provocateur? Or 1 Oak? But those venues don’t kick off until late. Maybe he couldn’t wait.
