But it was hardly plain sailing

A year into the relationship, Rajic became pregnant with George’s child.

In response to suggestions that George had requested that Rajic terminate the pregnancy in exchange for a sum of money, his spokesman said, “There is no truth to the rumours”.

However, within a few weeks of giving birth to daughter Olivia on 1 May, 2014, Rajic filed a suit against George, seeking a DNA test and legal declaration that he is the father.

Paternity tests confirmed that he is the father.
