Italian beautician Flavia Borzone, 35, is at the center of a controversial family dispute, claiming to be the half-sister of model and singer Elettra Lamborghini, known for her participation in BBB 17. Flavia hired private detectives to obtain a DNA sample from Elettra, seeking to prove that both share the same lineage and, therefore, she would be entitled to a part of the inheritance associated with the famous sports car brand.
According to Flavia, her mother, the Neapolitan opera singer Rosalba Colosimo, had started a relationship with Tonino Lamborghini – son of the brand’s founder Ferrucio Lamborghini – in the 1980s, resulting in Flavia’s birth in 1988. After making her story public in 2019, Flavia faced skepticism from the Lamborghini family, who did not provide a DNA test to verify the relationship.
Seeking to prove her theory, Flavia hired private detectives, who obtained a sample of Elettra’s saliva to perform a DNA test. The result, according to Flavia’s defense, confirmed the genetic link between the two.
However, the development generated legal complications for Flavia. She is being sued by the Lamborghini family, accused of defamation and illegally obtaining the saliva sample, allegedly taken without Elettra’s consent. The trial is scheduled for March and promises to be heated.
Flavia’s defense plans to present an audio recorded by her, where Tonino Lamborghini admits the relationship with her mother. Meanwhile, representatives of the Lamborghini family dispute the evidence obtained, questioning the physical similarity between Flavia and the family members, in addition to highlighting that Flavia’s mother had denied paternity in several fights with Tonino Lamborghini.
The legal saga promises to reveal intriguing details about the paternity dispute and the challenges faced by Flavia in seeking recognition of her supposed family bond.
