Billionaire Diamond Trader Dies During Penis Enlargement Surgery

Ehud Arye Laniado, a Belgian-Israeli diamond trader, has reportedly died after complications during penis enlargement surgery.

The 65-year-old was undergoing the procedure in a clinic on the Avenue des Champs-Elysees in Paris on Saturday, Belgian media reported.

According to newspaper Gazet van Antwerpen, the diamond expert suffered a heart attack after a substance was injected into his penis.

Laniado's company confirmed his passing on social media.

"Farewell to a visionary businessman," the statement said.

"It is with great sadness that we confirm that our founder Ehud Arye Laniado passed away."

With little information from hard and fast sources online, Laniado's exact wealth is unknown, though reports on deals he was believed to have a hand in certainly put estimates in the billions.

An anonymous friend told a Belgian newspaper that Laniado was “always focused on his appearance and how others perceived him.”

It appears Laniado didn't go to university and got his start working as a masseuse at the Hilton hotel in Tel Aviv.
