A former beauty pageant winner is suing the married Manhattan hedge fund manager she was having an affair with, after she says he gave her an STD.
Aline Marie Massel, 31, is demanding $15 million from her ex-Robert Charles Gibbins, the CEO of Autonomy Capital CEO, after he allegedly gave her HPV and pressured her to have an abortion.
Her lawsuit described how she first met Gibbins at Le Bilboquet French bistro in New York in June 2014, the New York Post reports.

She claims that Gibbins, 47, told her that he was unmarried and wooed her with promises to buy her an ostrich farm in Uganda.
'He promised to buy a large estate for them in Canada called the Royal Antler... and an ostrich farm in Uganda,' according to court papers.
The couple began their two-year affair where he showered her with gifts, including a Faberge purse, taking her for Japanese massages in Midtown Manhattan and flying to the World Cup in Brazil, her suit says.
Massel says she only discovered Gibbins was married a few weeks after they got together, when she received a text message from his wife which read: 'You are not the first and will not be the last,' according to the lawsuit.
However, Massel - a former Miss Germany International beauty queen who now works as a Tesla model - says her new partner promised that he would leave his wife.

The 31-year-old says that Gibbins insisted on having sex without a condom.
During their sexual encounters, she contracted HPV, her suit states. She says Gibbins never told her he was infected before they had sex.
Massel 'felt deceived and upset with [Gibbins] as he had been her only intimate partner since her last health screening and he did not disclose his sexually transmitted disease to her,' the suit said.
The suit states that they continued to date after she learned she's caught HPV with the hedge fund manager treating her to elaborate international trips and paying for her Manhattan apartment.
But when she fell pregnant, she says that her lover demanded she get an abortion and told her he wouldn't offer any support, personally or financially if she kept the baby.

Her lawsuit says that his lawyer offered her money to have an abortion and warned 'how difficult it would be to raise a child alone.'
Gibbins' wife also got involved, according to the suit, allegedly texting: 'Have the baby if you want it so much. I cannot wait to see you getting fat and ugly.'
Massel believes that Gibbins then hired a private detective to follow her until she had the abortion.
She believes that he was also concerned she could talk about his business and failed effort to buy a Ukrainian bank - a notorious 'location for money laundering,' the suit says.
A representative for Gibbins told the New York Post: 'These baseless allegations are without merit, and Mr. Gibbins will defend himself vigorously.'
