Ex-Girlfriend Of Gaddafi’s Son Escapes Rebels Who Threatened To Burn Her Alive

Talitha van Zon, a Dutch model, had romance with Gaddafi’s son Mutassim that lasted for only three months because there were ‘other women in his life,’ but remained close friends and enjoyed spending time together until one day, the rebels, joined by NATO forces, launched an attack on Tripoli and captured her as she tried to leave the country.

The Mail said the rebels paraded her in front of the others who threatened to ‘burn her alive,’ that she made a desperate attempt to escape by jumping off the hotel’s balcony.

At the hospital, where she was being treated of her injuries, she narrated how Mutassim treated her to a hedonistic lifestyle, spending $2 million a month flying her on a private Boeing jet around the world, attending luxurious dinner parties, Grand Prix, enjoying holidays at the Caribbean island of Saint Barts, and living in the most expensive hotels with several floors booked for their stay.

But, she said on her latest visit Mutassim had suddenly changed from the fun-loving playboy he was when she first met him to a man whose eyes were ‘cold’ which looked ‘capable of killing someone,’ sitting on a couch strewn with automatic rifles and guarded by ‘16-year-old boys with sub-machineguns.’

Talitha said they separated ways on Friday before the rebels attacked Tripoli where she managed to board a humanitarian ship to Malta after receiving her medication.
