PLAY­BOY’S RI­VAL IS FUM­ING

- Hugh Hefner · Gold Coast · Melbourne · Australia

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.
