A billionaire who feared the worst after reporting his wife missing learned that she was still alive and well after finding photos she posted on social media.
In July, Gianluca Cervara told police that his wife and former Miss Ukraine, Anna Zaiachkivska, 24, had gone missing. The couple was married in December 2015 in a registry office and planned a formal church wedding for September 2016.
Cervara worried that his wife had been kidnapped, or worse, but the search was quickly put to an end when photos on social media revealed that she was actually enjoying some time in New York.
"Your husband in Milan and parents say thank you for be in New York with address of another man," Cervara sarcastically wrote in a Facebook post, which was accompanied by photos the 24-year-old posted on social media after leaving Italy.
According to the Daily Mail, Zaiachkivska told tochka.net that she left her billionaire husband. Her reason? "He raised his hands against me."
"The first time when he did it I ran away to my parents' house in the western Ukrainian city of Ivano-Frankivsk," she said, according to the New York Post. "I did not tell them what the matter was.
He came to get me, and I gave him a second chance, but during an argument he spat in my face and I simply could not take it."
Anna said that after giving her husband another chance, she had finally had enough, adding that Cervara was very inattentive.
"I had headaches for a week but Gianluca did not care about it," she said. "Finally I decided I needed to make changes as I was fed up of living in a golden cage and I ran away."
Since leaving her husband, Zaiachkivska's Instagram page has been filled with pictures of her enjoying her time in New York.
