Greice Santo is a Brazilian model and actress, has accused Daryl Katz - owner of the Edmonton Oilers, co-founder of Silver Pictures entertainment, of offering her millions of dollars and a movie role in exchange for companionship and sex.
According to Variety, Santo alleges that Katz promised to help her with her acting career in order to lure her to his hotel suite. Santo says although she rejected Katz’s advances, she still received two wire transfers totalling $35,000.
Santo, who appeared in the first season of the Golden Globe winning television show Jane The Virgin, told the Hawaii Police Department that she met Katz at a November 2015 photo shoot, he offered her money in exchange for sex. Santo's husband, R.J. Cipriani, filed the defamation lawsuit last week against G.F. Bunting & Co., a crisis consulting firm that represents the Oilers owner.
Katz' attorney, Dennis Roach, slammed the allegations as false in a statement to The New York Daily News.
“Robert J. Cipriani is a convicted felon who has been menacing Mr. Katz and his family for more than a year. The allegations in the complaint filed against Mr. Bunting and his company, and the assertions made in that document about Mr. Katz, are false, malicious and entirely without merit," Roach said.
The 56-year old Katz is married with two children and has a net worth $4.14 billion. According to Forbes, Katz is the 12th wealthiest Canadian and 534th richest person in the world.
