A reader who wishes to remain anonymous sends along a variety of links to articles about the late owner of Mercedes of Greenwich and his 50-year-younger girlfriend.
This one from the NY Post gives a good expose of the
tail tale. And, being the Post, they’ve entitled it, “A Case of the Benz”.
What’s a girl supposed to do?
The mistress of a late luxury-auto dealer is suing his company to enforce a four-year employment contract — even though her sole duty allegedly was sleeping with her boss.
And now, a judge has sided with brunette beauty Emel Dilek [pronounced “da Lick”? – Ed], saying that while the details behind her deal “are worthy of a made-for-television movie,” the agreement could still be binding.
Dilek, a 30-something from Germany, was hired to work at Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich shortly after she and the married part-owner, Ronald Pecunies, began shacking up in a Central Park South love nest in October 2005.
At a deposition, Watson Enterprises owner Arthur “Kitt” Watson testified that he could recall only one thing that Dilek did “on a regular basis” for her job responsibilities.
“She used to sleep with Ron,” he said.
Watson also said his basis for firing Dilek was “that I don’t want my ex-partner’s girlfriend working for me.”
“Or fiancée, excuse me,” he added.
But Manhattan federal Judge Paul Oetken said Dilek’s suit can proceed, noting “that while the circumstances surrounding this contract are unusual in a theatrical sense — indeed they are worthy of a made-for-television movie — the contract itself is not so unusual in the relevant legal sense.”
The disgruntled Kitt Watson (isn’t he the son of the late Greenwich resident, Thomas Watson of IBM?) sold off the business to Roger Penske but Penske, too now has his difficulties. His 30-year-old son was just arrested in Nantucket for urinating on a female he didn’t know.
