Bad Heir Day

“This was some time before Smyth, whose full first name Walton later would learn was Marianne, convinced him that she was an Irish heiress who stood to inherit 5 million euros. In time, she would also mention that she was pals with Ashley Judd; show him a closet full of allegedly thousand-dollar designer shoes; and share that she had a psychic gift. It was years before Walton and others began to suspect that all these boasts were lies, part of an elaborate scheme that ensnared several individuals in the entertainment industry, and left Walton filing for personal bankruptcy.” The Hollywood Reporter: The Hollywood Producer, the “Heiress” and a Very Personal Quest for Justice. (I have a very simple rule. If you tell me you have a psychic gift, I don’t lend you money…)_
