Paolo, at that time, told her that he had separated from his wife but hadn’t got a divorce. They soon started meeting and often went to dinners.

Alexander’s fairytale romance began with Paolo after her ex-husband’s death. He took her to places like Mexico, Russia and Greece for the weekends and spent time together quite often.

The surgeon proposed to her for marriage on Christmas in 2013 which Benita accepted. They planned a Catholic wedding in Italy.

However, he left the US after some days telling her that he had a “really important surgery” to perform for a high-powered client.

Benita later found that Paolo had lied about the wedding and that all the wedding plans were scams. He even was not legally separated from his wife and also had another woman in Barcelona.

Benita made a documentary about her story and Macchiarini’s fraud to make people aware of such cases. She even appears on the shows and talks about the surgeon’s fraud and also shares videos of her story on various social media platforms.

“As furious as it makes me what he did [to me and] my daughter, the thought that this is a man who has people’s lives in his hands. This is a surgeon. … People could be dying because of this man, and therefore, I couldn’t stay silent, I couldn’t crawl under the covers. … I had to expose him.”
