PLAYBOY’S RIVAL IS FUMING
A TOBACCO king playboy is being sued by a rival company that says he’s been ripping them off.
Travers Beynon, who calls himself The Candyman, is known for his collection of luxury cars and for throwing parties Playboy founder Hugh Hefner would envy.
Surrounded by buxom, scantily clad girls, Mr Beynon spends his days at his “Candy Mansion” on the Gold Coast.
But he slipped quietly into Melbourne this week to defend legal claims that he has been muscling in on rival tobacco company, TSG Franchise Management.
The company alleges Mr Beynon’s Cigarette and Gift Warehouse, which operates as Freechoice Australia, induced its franchisees to sign up with his company.
The Federal Court hearing continues.
