New York (Tadias) – The mystery woman behind a royal divorce in Europe has been identified as Ethiopian Princess Kemeria Abajobir Abajifar, reports New York’s Daily News quoting the Ethiopian website Ethioplanet.com.
Last week we reported that the internet was abuzz with the news that an Ethiopian beauty has wrecked a royal marriage. Countess LuAnn de Lesseps and her husband, Count Alexandre de Lesseps, have been separated after the Royal sent an email informing his wife of 16 years that he is intimately involved with an Ethiopian woman in Geneva.
Alas, the woman is now unmasked as an Ethiopian royal herself. She is the descendant of King Abajifar, the last ruler of a powerful kingdom in the Gibe region of Ethiopia, Ethioplanet said.
Quoting The New York Daily News: “An unnamed source said it was the wish of both the princess and Count Lesseps, 59, that she no longer be identified as ‘the Ethiopian woman’ but rather with her royal credentials.”
