A billionaire diamond trader has died after 'suffering a heart attack' during a penis enlargement operation in Paris. Officials say 65-year-old Ehud Arye Laniado was checked in at a private clinic in Paris last Saturday when complications during surgery proved fatal.
Laniado's incident reportedly happened when a substance was injected into his organ. His company, Omega Diamonds, confirmed his passing saying in a statement that read, 'Farewell to a visionary businessman. It is with great sadness that we confirm that our founder Ehud Arye Laniado has passed away.'
A friend of Mr. Laniado's, who wished to remain anonymous, said he was 'always focused on his appearance and how others perceived him'. According to media reports, Laniado suffered from a so-called Napoleon complex due to his short stature.
- In 2015, Laniado sold the world's most expensive diamond, called the Blue Moon of Josephine, to Hong Kong businessman and convicted felonJoseph Lau Luen Hungfor $48.4-million.
