No 'Pretty Woman' ending for tycoon

A MILLIONAIRE property tycoon who attempted to "save" a high-class escort is suing her for more than $100,000 (€75,000) after she went back to selling sex.
Robert Brot (57) hoped to copy the story of the film 'Pretty Woman' by helping Lindsey DeLeon give up her trade. He even offered to marry the 26-year-old mother of two and spent more than $100,000 on her.
But, according to papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, there was no happy Hollywood ending.
Mr Brot, who runs a successful property company in New York, arranged for Ms DeLeon to move in with him and pay for her to train as an estate agent. He also paid for her to leave the city and return to her home in Oklahoma where he believed she was trying to find a job.
According to the lawsuit, Ms DeLeon agreed to pay back Mr Brot when she was established in a new career.
However, after moving back to Tulsa, she got a job as a stripper and began advertising herself on adult websites. Ms DeLeon has refused to comment. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
