Ex Describes Financier as Self-Hating Asian in Explosive Trial

Marta Billeci

A former girlfriend who sued her ex claiming he ruined her career testified in an explosive trial in New York.

Mara Billeci told an all women jury that financier Taye Famm was obsessed with Eastern European women and was looking to whiten the gene pool, reported the New York Post.

“He was looking to have children. He made a reference that it’s going to improve genes,” Billeci said.

The two had a brief jet-setting relationship in 2011 going off to such exotic vacations as the Dominican Republic and Jamaica, according to Billeci.

She said things soured after she broke things off with Famm, a former Soros employee. Both accused each other of harassment and stalking. Famm successfully obtained a restraining order against Billeci and later had her arrested for two days when she called him in violation of the order.

Billeci is suing Famm for emotional distress and is seeking $250,000 in damages.

Famm is scheduled to testify today in his defense if a deal cannot be reached before then.

Famm is currently married with two children.

  1. RE: Ex-describes financier as self-hating Asian in Explosive Trial: What a shame. I pray that this doesn’t affect the wife and children.

  2. RE: Ex describes Financier as self-hating Asian in Explosive Trial: You know he’s the type of guy who projects his self hate onto Asian women.

  3. RE: Ex describes Financier as self- hating Asian in Explosive Trial: Well they settled without having to go to trial. Glad his family can put this behind them and learn that money makes your troubles go away but doesn’t change who you are or what you did or didn’t do.
