A formerly wealthy businessman Klaus Schweikert, 57, worked for several years managing large concerns in Germany before leaving his job to manage his own business that included property among other investments.
He first met Lucy, 27, from the Czech Republic after returning to his house in Horn in northern Austria from a business trip in Germany.
"I had been away a long time and when I finally got back to my home here in Austria, it was cold and empty. The whole house was covered in dust because I had been away for so long, and when my friend came round to visit me he noticed that I seemed a bit depressed. That was when he suggested inviting someone round, and before I knew it he had rung the local brothel and arranged for a girl to make a house visit," he said.
"I had never visited a brothel before or been with a prostitute, and I wasn't in favour but when I opened the door, and I saw Lucy standing there, I fell in love instantly."
He said that instead of having sex, he invited her for champagne and made her a meal, and the couple had quickly spent the two hours he paid €400 for in conversation - by which point he had fallen in love.
"It felt as if I had found my other half. She felt the same, and rang her boss to tell him she was going to spend the rest of the night with me, and not charge anything," he said.
After that they developed a relationship, and Lucy, who had worked for three years in a brothel in Lower Austria, showed no hesitation when he asked her if she would marry him.
Lucy was seen crying at the wedding ceremony, which was attended by her mother and friends of the family, and for three weeks the couple are said to have been very happy. But all that changed when Klaus crashed his Rolls-Royce, and was hospitalised. At first Lucy visited him regularly, but then as he was about to be released, there was further bad news after he had a massive debilitating heart attack.
Slowly the hospital visits from Lucy dried up. Now she reportedly has a new boyfriend and has left Klaus, taking her expensive jewellery and a brand-new Audi A8, as well as other items of property as her share of the marriage.
And as for devastated Klaus, who has been unable to concentrate on his business, he claims that most of his investments have now gone, and his friends told local media that he spends a lot of his time drinking too much.
"The situation now is far from pretty," one of his friends told the local newspaper.
