Sharen Jester Turney, the Victoria's Secret CEO, is married, but allegedly, she had a two-year affair with a luxury Florida real estate broker, reported New York Post's Page Six on Sept. 18, 2013. The gentleman in question is Cliff Donenfeld who says he met Turney, 56, at a party in 2008.
If Donenfeld is telling the truth about his affair with Sharen Jester Turney, the Victoria's Secret CEO, who is one of the highest-paid female executives, promised him a life with her and a multimillion-dollar house to boot.
"I was instrumental in every aspect of her life for two years. I was her sounding board, personally and professionally," claims Donenfeld, 50. "Sharen said if I ended any other romantic entanglements, we could see each other every two weeks . . . [Sexually] I opened a door for her that was closed."
Donenfeld broke up with his girlfriend, had the alleged affair, got a Cartier watch out of the deal, but that was about it. They allegedly broke up, and he never got the multimillion-dollar house.
To add insult to injury, Donenfeld claims that even though Sharen Jester Turney is the Victoria's Secret CEO who could open lots of doors for him, when he allegedly asked her for a reference to get into the fashion world, she refused.
According to the New York Post, Turney could not be reached for comment.
Do you believe Donenfeld's story and if so, what do you think of it? Please leave a comment.
