The long marriage of sugar tycoon Pepe Fanjul and his wife, Emilia, the subject of constant gossip and speculation among the international rich and famous group, is finally over and out after being on and off for months. It was thought that the marriage would finally stick after the Fanjuls made peace and left earlier in the summer for a trip to Europe together. But, as from the beginning of the troubles, Pepe never really lost the interest in Nina Griscom that kept him off balance for years.
