Frederic Prinz von Anhalt (ne Robert Lichtenberg) has spoken to Bunte about Prince Carl Alexander's failed marriage. He served as Carl Alexander's best man at the February 23rd ceremony in Las Vegas when the Prince, 41, married 21-year-old Corinna, described by Bunte as an Austrian model. At the time of the wedding, von Anhalt noted that Carl Alexander's ex-girlfriends wanted to exclude him, but Corinna "wants to be with him."
Now, two months later, the wedding is over, and Corinna has filed for divorce. According to von Anhalt, Corinna flew to Austria after the wedding to get her papers, and then decided to not return to the United States.
Prince Carl Alexander told the magazine" Four weeks ago, she called me and said 'I do not love you and do not come back.'" Carl Alexander was understandably disappointed. "For me it was love, but she just used me."
Von Anhalt is surprised by Corinna's audacity. He railed: "She just wanted the title of princess." Corinna apparently sent her manager to Los Angeles to pay off Prince Carl Alexander. He was supposed to receive $10,000 immediately and then a further $80,000 after Corinna officially changed her name.
But, according to von Anhalt, Corinna's managers tricked Alex, and gave him only $100.00. But Carl Alexander was not "intimidated" by Corinna's people. He set a trap, apparently aided and abetted by Frederic von Anhalt.
"I ordered them to my house and explained that we would do whatever they wanted," von Anhalt said with pride. "Then I called the police." According to Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband, who paid a large sum of money to the late Princess Marie Auguste of Anhalt, in order to be adopted so he could have the surname Prinz von Anhalt, "Austrians peed in fear," and now Corinna's plans have come to naught.
Poor Carl Alexander. No wife, no money. He said his dream wife should have "above all great character, and must not take advantage of me for my title." He added: "I like German women, who prefer wearing a dirndl. He also likes women with large breasts."
