Mum tries to curb son squandering his fortune

The mother of a wealthy German businessman has launched a court bid to stop her millionaire son from squandering his fortune. A report in the Sunday Times says Helga Eichenauer (64) told the Cape High Court how her estranged son Andreas (34) allowed his R2m farm in the Hemel en Aarde valley near Hermanus to go to ruin and harassed his therapist after a car crash in which he suffered severe injuries. He was so infatuated with the therapist that he sent her a R2m bank-guaranteed cheque and a note asking her to marry him, according to the report. Eichenauer is seeking an order appointing a permanent curator to manage his affairs as she believes his personality disorder causes him to spend his money irresponsibly. Her attorney said in papers before court Andreas Eichenauer was not in South Africa and ‘his whereabouts are unknown’.
