A billionaire businessman, Ehud Laniado, who deals in diamond, has died after he suffered major complications during a penis enlargement operation.
Reports by local media say the 65-year-old was injected in his penis by an unnamed plastic surgeon in Paris, France, earlier this month.
A Belgian newspaper, Gazet van Antwerpen, said he suffered a heart attack afterwards.
The deceased held dual citizenship of Belgium and Israel.
His company, Omega Diamonds, confirmed his death in a message on Facebook.
“It is with great sadness that we confirm that our founder Ehud Arye Laniado has passed away.
“After living an exceptional life Ehud will be brought back home to Israel as his final resting place. He will be dearly missed by us all,” the statement read.
Mr Laniado was reportedly facing claims of tax evasion of about $7 billion.
The total valuation of his wealth is unknown, however, the deceased is said to own the most expensive penthouse in Monaco, worth over $56 million.
He sold the world’s most expensive diamond, the Blue Moon of Josephine, in 2015 to Hong Kong businessman and convicted felon, Joseph Lau Luen Hung, for $68 million.
