Then couple wanted to get the rings insured and whenever they asked Nirav about the papers, he would keep delaying it.
And later, when Alfonso’s fiancee took the ring to the insurer herself, they found out that the stones were fake, and she broke up with him. Alfonso went into depression. He revealed to the media, “When she told me, I was like ‘That’s impossible. I spent US$200,000 on those rings. There’s no way they are fake. It’s Nirav we are talking about”.
He got to know the truth about Nirav Modi and on this he revealed, “I am usually very careful when I am dealing with a big transaction like this, but again, this is Nirav. I would not imagine him trying to take a few hundred thousand from me when a guy is worth millions of dollars”.
About his fiancée breaking up with him, Paul was quoted as saying, “We broke up literally after one or two days. It was just too much for both of us to handle. It does not make sense to her, because she says: ‘You are a pretty smart guy, how did you let someone scam you out of US$200,000 without making sure the transaction was legitimate?”.
