A high society Italian engagement party ended in chaos when the groom accused his bride of cheating in a devastating speech.
Massimo Segre, 64, invited guests to his Turin mansion to celebrate his upcoming nuptials to Cristina Seymandi, 47, when all hell broke loose during a toast.
“I want to give Cristina the freedom to love,” the groom said. “Specifically, to love another person; a notable lawyer, who she clearly cares about more than me.
“Dear Cristina, I know how much you are in love with him mentally and sexually. And I know that before him you had a relationship with an industrialist acquaintance.”
As Segre tears into his bride to be, sharing photos of Seymandi with another man as she stands next to him, she looks around the room for support.
The groom then said: “Don’t think it pleases me to look like a cuckold in front of all of you.
“Cristina is so good at telling her truths, that I couldn’t leave her alone to narrate the reason why I’m ending [our] life together tonight.
“It’s a banal story of infidelity, even premarital. I am so disappointed. I am heartbroken.”
Segre then wishes his ex-fiancee well, tells her to go to Mykonos with her lover, and leaves the stage.
After the chaotic engagement party, a video taken by one of the guests has now gone viral, leading to Seymandi to receive of death threats.
Speaking to Italian newspaper Il Corriere della Sera, she said: “When he started talking, I thought it was a joke.
“Then I was petrified. It was an act of abhorrent violence.”
In a letter to the director of the Zona Bianca TV news programme, Seymandi also claimed Segre committed an act of “psychological violence” and had “meticulously planned his revenge”.

Speaking to the Times, Seymandi’s adviser said she will be taking legal action for “reputational damage” against her.
She added: “She has suffered very serious attacks on social media and threats from Italian citizens. It has been traumatic.”
Claudio Strata, Seymandi’s lawyer, added the banker had “intentionally humiliated her”.
“The letter was read out in front of dozens of people and it was captured in a video that was sent to the newspapers. We don’t think this was improvised.”
