Did Hereditary Count Ludwig von Waldburg zu Wolfegg und Waldsee file for an annulment due to family pressure? Indonesian celebrity Jessica Iskandar says she does not know the reason why Ludwig has filed suit to end what may appear to be have been a sham marriage.
In a press conference held in Jakarta on Monday, Iskandar finally answered questions about her relationship with the German nobleman, heir to large estate that includes a castle, Schloss Wolfegg. His father is the Prince of Waldburg zu Wolfegg und Waldsee.
She admitted that she had not known at first that Ludwig was the scion of a German mediatized princely family. She acknowledged that he "showered her with lavish gifts."
"The only gift he gave to me was a cell phone charger." (How romantic!)
She was also confused by the news that he was a nobleman. He was living in Jakarta boarding house when they met. "I know he's a regular guy, while working in Indonesia."
