German businesswoman Corinna Larsen’s credibility is called into question by her own ex-husband. Philip Atkins offered some explosive statements about the woman he was married to.
Although he did not want to participate in the controversial podcast “Corinna and the King”, the businessman did not mince words when it came to referring to the mother of his daughter.
The most recent episode of the podcast focused on the controversy that was sparked by the fall of King Juan Carlos I during a trip to Africa and the injury he suffered, for which he had to be rushed and subsequently underwent hip surgery.
Who is Philip Atkins?
Philip Atkins is the German businesswoman’s first husband. The two shared a marriage that lasted three years. Atkins is an American businessman who was part of the emeritus’ close group when Larsen was “his great special friend”. In fact, they were introduced and the two forged a great friendship, it is said that the businessman comforted the monarch when Larsen moved away from him.
Larsen met Atkins at age 21 when she was working in Paris and he held a senior position as an investment banker at Citigroup. He was educated at Columbia and Harvard universities, and by the year he met his future wife, he was based in Japan, but traveled constantly to the French capital.
The marriage took place in 1991, they moved to London and in 1992 they welcomed their only daughter Nastassia Adkins. The marriage ended in 1994 but the two maintained communication. The excellent relationship continued until after she remarried Casimir Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn, with whom she had their son, Alexander.
What did Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein’s ex-husband have to say?
Currently, the relationship of the ex-spouses is not very good. In fact, the businessman has not hesitated to lash out at her in some strong words. He claims that everything Larsen has said is “totally false” and that is why he refused to participate in the project.
Atkins has gone a little further and accused her of being “dangerous and unstable”. On the incident in Africa she went so far as to comment in an interview to Vanity Fair:
“It was a privilege to be there. Corinna, her son and I spent some great days in the African savannah, we had a great time and we have wonderful memories. It was a terrible accident and being in a place where you don’t know exactly where the cabin is or the height of the bed… it disorients you. It’s a human accident and it’s terrible. I think it was very unfortunate that the King fell and broke his hip,” she said.
