Prince Jefri Bolkiah, brother of the Sultan of Brunei, is suing several of his former business advisers. Among evidence filed in recent court proceedings, are a series of photographs depicting bronze statues of the Prince and his fiancée, Las Vegas femme fatale Micha Raines. Prince Bolkiah commissioned the statues to decorate a swimming pool at his 28 acre estate in Sunninghill, Long Island (which the Prince has never visited). The statues had to be returned once it was discovered that several depictions of the Prince omitted his trademark mustache.
The 80 year old artist, J. Seward Johnson Jr., is the disowned scion of the Johnson and Johnson fortune. Prince Bolkiah, the former Bruneian finance minister, also owns a luxury yacht named "Tits". If the "art" above don't convince you there is such a thing as too much money (the artist alone was paid nearly $1 million for the commission), check out "The Inside Job". This EXCELLENT documentary should be mandatory viewing for every living, breathing human being.
