Polish call girl in £4m battle over late banker lovers estate is found dead

A woman at the centre of bitter court battle after being accused of swindling millions out of her former lover has been found dead.

Nightclub boss Magdalena Zalinska was accused of being a call girl who had conned a rich banker out of £4m.

But the body of the Polish mum-of-two has now been found in her south London flat after cops smashed through her front door when neighbours raised concerns over her welfare, reports the Mail Online.

Miss Zalinska, 44, had been left a chunk of money in the will of former Goldman Sachs banker Danny Truell, who died of a neurological condition in 2019, and she had also been given a lot of money during their relationship.

But Danny’s brother Edi, a City financier, claims she got her hands on some of Danny’s £18m fortune through “undue influence”.

Danny, a former boss of the Wellcome Trust, had made payments on her flat over seven years.

Edi’s lawyers executed the estate and described the pair's relationship as that of a "call girl" and her client. But Miss Zalinska had denied the allegations, and she said she and Danny had been in a loving and romantic relationship for 14 years before his death.

Her lawyer noted that the banker’s will described her as a "dependent and partner".

The full High Court case was due to take place next year, but in a recent hearing a judge was told that the case revolved around the nature of the "strange relationship" between the pair.

Miss Zalinska’s ex-husband Wojtek Zalinski confirmed her death, and said he was flying in from his home in Krakow.

He insisted she was not a prostitute, and said: “That was absolute rubbish, she was never a call girl. Never. I do not know why such hurtful things were said about her in the court.

“That is wrong and should not have been said. She is not here to defend herself now so I will do it.”

Police said officers were approached by people concerned for Miss Zalinska’s safety on Saturday (March 11).

A spokesman said: “The death is being treated as unexpected, though initial inquiries determined it was not suspicious.”

Danny, a successful fund manager, divorced his wife Naomi in 2011, a year before he was diagnosed with MS, which later became a form of motor neurone disease.
