KING PRESENTS A PSA FOR CELIBACY
Billionaire Kirk Kerkorian met former tennis pro Lisa Bonder on a tennis court. He was 74. She was 23. After messing around for a few years, he gave her $4 million to disappear. She took the money and then popped up pregnant. Kerkorian voluntarily began to pay $20,000 per month in child support.
Kerkorian's baby-mama still wasn't satisfied. She wanted their child to be legitimate and complained about not being married. Daddy Warbucks agreed to marry her and increase her child support to $50,000 per month, as long as she divorced him within a month.
She filed for divorce 30 days later and then asked him for $20 million to go away forever. But Kerkorian, finally catching on to Bonder's gold-digger tendencies, ordered a blood test. And surprise, surprise, it wasn't his baby.
Bonder ordered another blood test. This time, she tricked Kerkorian's older daughter from a previous marriage into giving her a saliva sample. Then she submitted it to the courts, pretending it was her daughter's saliva. When the test showed that Kerkorian was the father, she asked that her child support be increased to $320,000 per month. (That included $436 per month to care for the child's pet bunny).
Meanwhile, Kerkorian read a story about Steven Bing, a movie producer who had a baby with model and actress Elizabeth Hurley. Turns out Bing had also had a fling with Bonder. Kerkorian called him up, man-to-man, and asked him to take a paternity test. Bing refused, so Kerkorian sent a bodyguard to Bing's house to rifle through his garbage. A piece of used dental floss was found. And the tests showed that Bing was the father of the billion-dollar baby.
Bonder, however, wasn't fazed. She continued her suit. In court, she said the real father didn't matter since Kerkorian had signed the birth certificate and claimed the child as his own. Bonder didn't get the whopping $4 million a year she wanted. But Kerkorian has been ordered to continue paying over $50,000 per month until the child turns 18.
