Beauty and the Creep: Flavio Briatore and his Supermodel Girlfriends

Posted in General by Vito Rispo | August 2nd, 2008 | 6 Responses |

The man in the picture above has been romantically linked with some of the world’s most beautiful women; supermodels, perfect forms of sexuality… that guy in the picture. Yes he’s incredibly rich, but it’s still mind-boggling, until you realize that he’s also a creep. And women love rich creeps.

His name is Flavio Briatore, and he’s the manager of Benetton’s Formula 1 team, the co-founder of Bennetton, an international playboy extraordinaire, and a shady freak. He was involved in all sorts of strange dealings before he got hooked up with Luciano Benetton and somehow got his name in the history books as a “co-founder”. He was actually convicted of fraud in Italy back in the day, but he fled to the Virgin Islands and waited it out, living the good life there for a while.

But Briatore is more than just a bizarre looking shady dealer, he’s a danger to Formula 1 racing.
Check out this quote:

“The people in charge (of Formula 1) should be businessmen, as they are in Hollywood, not ex-engineers. Nothing costs more, and delivers less entertainment, than hidden technology. And that’s what engineers love most of all.”

Briatore has been outspoken about wanting more ‘entertainment’ in Formula 1, even though every so often, he completely loses interest in the sport and quits his position, only to come back a few months later and pretend to love it again.

Here’s the deal Flavio, if you want to make more money and ‘deliver more entertainment’, then go to Hollywood, or get involved in NASCAR, but don’t try to dumb down Formula 1 just because you don’t understand the complexities of the sport.

Am I right? Back me up here commenters.

Either way, despite all of this (or probably because of it), Flavio Briatore is amazingly successful with the ladies. So without further ado, here’s the good part, a pictorial list of his romantic relations:

Adriana Volpe

Naomi Campbell

Heidi Klum

Elisabetta Gregoraci

So Flavio apparently only dates freakishly gorgeous supermodels. We all have our standards. Good for him. Lovely. Wonderful. Fine.

By the way, one more time for clarification; this is what Flavio Briatore looks like:

    Vito, Vito, Vito.


    “Women” do not love creeps, “gold diggers” love creeps. Although, to be fair, roughly 85% of women are gold diggers…but still, I felt the clarification was necessary.

    [I will agree with you though, Flav’s girlfriends are disproportionally hot. They definitely fall under that 85%]

    Tru. You are right, its an important distinction to make.

    Flav? I wish I thought of that when I was writing the title, I could worked in a little ‘Flavor Flav’ action. awesome

    I think F1 is way more interesting than NASCAR as it is. If they need more people (and specifically more people in the states watching), then they need to promote it better here, and actually have an American Grand Prix again. Anyway, dude must have a lot of money to get women like that and for him to look as he does.

    Flavio is right, F1 is boring to watch (interesting to read about, but the races themselves are boring, someone leads from start to finish = boring)
    I used to love reading about F1 as a kid, then it finally appeared on my TV screen… what a let down

    I wouldn’t care how much money that man had, I would never let him touch me (not even with a paper bag over his face – or mine). Yuck.
