According to media reports, Laniado suffered from a so-called Napoleon complex due his short stature.
An old friend of Laniado who wished to remain anonymous said he was known as “the Argentinian” at Omega Diamonds “because he looked like a tango dancer."
The old friend said that Laniado was “always focused on his appearance and how others perceived him.”
According to Laniado’s friends, the only time he forgot about his short height was when he asked his accountant to read out his bank statement, something which he did multiple times a day, it was reported.
Laniado reportedly owned the most expensive penthouse in Monaco worth over 30 million pounds (approx. $39.4 million) as well as a house in the plush L.A. suburb of Bel Air, where he loved to drink bottles of Chateau Margaux with models and celebrities.
