Read the VERY cryptic party invite sent by a millionaire socialite to his Playboy 50th party – as his lover’s ex is seen with a mysterious woman outside the club where he assaulted a cop
- Socialite Annabelle Price celebrated her partner’s wild 50th birthday
- The ‘Playboy’ themed party had a strict ‘no phones’ rule
- Meanwhile, her ex-financier was spotted with a mysterious woman
Their failed marriage has been the talk of Sydney’s social circles for most of 2021, but it seems disgraced financier Freddie Blencke and his ex-wife Annabelle Price have finally left their failed relationship.
The one-time model celebrated her partner Tom Fennell’s 50th birthday Saturday night at The Ivy penthouse, where 100 of the couple’s best friends dusted off their tuxedos, silk pajamas and bunny ears for “A Night at the Playboy Mansion.”
Daily Mail Australia can exclusively reveal the strict social media and photo ban Mr Fennell had put in place, reminding guests via email on the eve of the party.
While it was strictly black-tie for men, there were probably more than a few bunnies on the loose Saturday night.
“One can only imagine the outfits, or lack thereof, some of the wives and girlfriends were in,” a well-placed source told the Daily Mail Australia.
Millionaire private equity associate Tom Fennell has been dating Annabelle Price since her split from Freddie Blencke in 2020
Nothing says a midlife crisis like a “Playboy themed” 50th birthday party
“No doubt that empty spa was also running on high rotation,” the source said, referring to the venue’s infamous hot tub.
Meanwhile, her ex-private wealth advisor also seemed to be enjoying his weekend.
He was spotted outside Hotel Revesis in Bondi on Sunday, deep in conversation with a mysterious brunette.
It’s the same celebrity hot spot where he assaulted a police officer in 2021 after being asked to leave by security.
After pleading guilty to assaulting a police officer, causing bodily harm and staying near licensed premises after being asked to leave, Blencke was sentenced to a 12-month injunction in Waverley local court for community corrections and a $750 fine.
It has been three years of hell for the businessman, who was acquitted last year of assaulting his wife and violating an arrest warrant.
The father of three even traded his Ralph Lauren shirts for prison green for a month during the 2021 Christmas break.
But the 50-year-old finally got a break when Sydney judge Jacqueline Milledge allowed him to live in a luxurious private home in the northern NSW town of Federal.
He was ordered to report to Byron Bay Police Station three times a week and was not allowed to drink alcohol or visit a licensed location.
“Not even a Chinese restaurant, Mr. Blencke,” Magistrate Milledge warned him at the time.
Mr. Fennell is the managing director of Tama Capital Partners and was previously married to Vanessa Fennell, who recently joined the rebooted cast of The Real Housewives of Sydney.
