Trust’s tight grip

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

JOHN Paul Getty was the world’s rich­est man, and also the mean­est.

The bil­lion­aire oil ty­coon was tighter than a tin of Si­amese sar­dines.

A so­cial recluse, he lived with his harem in a listed Tu­dor manor house, hated his kids (“per­fumed wasters”) and made all-com­ers use a pay phone.

Trust tells the story of Getty’s “Golden Grand­son” John Paul Getty III’s ab­duc­tion, with the un­proven spin that the spoilt teenager staged his own kid­nap­ping.

True or not, the drama grips like Getty’s hand on a ten bob note.
