[edit] Information

Headlines around the world were made in 1968, when Greek shipping tycoon and renowned playboy Aristotle Onassis controversially married American royalty - JFK's widow Jackie. But this family's closet is chock full of other skeletons. Having reputedly arrived in Buenos Aires with just $60 in his pocket, Aristotle Onassis went on to build a fleet of oil tankers and become a billionaire. He married Tina Livanos, whose sister Eugenia was the wife of his arch-rival, Stavros Niarchos. The marriage lasted until Tina caught her husband having sex in the saloon of the yacht that bore her name with opera star Maria Callas. Eugenia having died in mysterious circumstances, Tina then married Niarchos, and committed suicide in 1974.

Thus began a catalogue of tragic events. Aristotle's son, Alexander, who was being groomed to take over the Onassis empire, was killed in a freak plane accident. When Aristotle himself died broken-hearted in 1975, his daughter Christina inherited his riches. Her life was no fairy-tale. Married four times, fighting eating disorders, drug abuse and depression for most of her life, Christina died in a Buenos Aires bathtub in 1988 aged 37, apparently from an overdose of slimming pills. It's her daughter - with playboy Thierry Roussell - who has made recent headlines. He's fought the Greek trustees of her estate for more than a decade and now, she's of age - she's chosen to sue him also.
