Corinna Chu Zain-Wittgenstein-Zain has been accusing her former king of threats, surveillance and intimidation since 2012
Spain’s ex-king Juan Carlos has had a £126m (€153m) lawsuit dismissed in London by his ex-mistress, who accuses him of running a campaign of harassment after she refused to pay him back millions of euros.
Corina Chu Zain-Wittgenstein-Zain sued the 85-year-old former monarch, claiming that since 2012 Juan Carlos orchestrated threats, surveillance and intimidation against her.
Juan Carlos, who denies ever molesting Sein-Wittgenstein, had asked a London court to dismiss the case and the court ruled in his favor today.
Juan Carlos “emphatically denies that he ever molested” Zine-Wittgenstein, the ex-monarch’s lawyer, Adam Wolansky, told a London court hearing in July.
Judge Rowena Collins Rice ruled in his favor today, saying that Zine-Wittgenstein’s lawsuit lacked reasonable grounds to justify it.
Zein-Wittgenstein said in a statement that she was “deeply disappointed” by the decision and was considering all options.
Juan Carlos’ British lawyers did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
