He wants an annulment and his wedding gifts returned. tillfir'sMamagfi by Lloyd Shearer O ne of the least publicized -among the world's wealthiest men is Edgar Bronfman, 44, president of Distillers Corp.-Seagrams, Ltd., a Canadian corporation which has captured about 25 percent of the American liquor market, selling Seven Crown, Seagram's V.O., Calvert, Four Roses, Chivas Regal, Carstairs, Paul Masson, and other brands. Edgar is one of the four children of Sam Bronfman, who founded Distillers Corp. and a family-owned company, CEMP Investments, Ltd., an acronym utilizing the first names of 'the four Bronfman children, Charles, Edgar, Minda and Phyllis. CEMP Investments controls close to $1 billion in stocks, bonds, real estate and other holdings. In 1953, Edgar Bronfman married Ann Loeb, daughter of John Loeb, senior partner of Carl Loeb, Rhoades Co., in an alliance that helped produce and consolidate an even 'larger .fortune. Edgar and Ann had five children, supposedly were happily married. Last year, however, they were di- vorced. Edgar Bronfman had fallen in love with Lady Carolyn Townshend, 34-year-old daughter of Marquess Townshend. Lady Carolyn, a former press agent; had met Edgar Bronfman when she was handling the Seagram's" account in London. As she tells it, "Edgar Bronfman pursued me madly. He chased me around the world for two years, asking me to marry him." Million-dollar gift Last December Edgar and Carolyn were married in New York, then held a lavish reception at The Inn on the Park Hotel in London. For a wedding settlement Bronfman gave his new wife $1 million and a New York mansion. Following their London . reception, Lady Carolyn returned to New York City to find a letter from her husband's lawyers. It said he wanted to annul the marriage and asked the court to "freeze" the miHion-dollar settlement and the upstate New York mansion. 'To say the letter was a shock," storms Carolyn Townshend, whose father is chairman of Anglia Television, "is an understatement. I haven't spoken to Edgar since. He gave me the gifts and now he wants them back. He cannot get them back unless the marriage is annulled,, which is why he wants an annulment and not a divorce. "Frankly I didn't want his money, and that's not why I married him in the first place. But an agreement is an agreement.And I shall fight the annulment as vigorously as I can." She wants a raise The second Mrs. Edgar Bronfman, a tall, lovely blonde, is currently residing at the Stanhope Hotel in New York, receiving an allowance of $500 a week from her husband. She wants this raised to $2500 a week until the case is settled. It has, of course, all the ingredients of a major scandal. Lady Carolyn has one son by Italian industrialist Antonio Capellini, whom she married in 1962. They were divorced three years ago.- Her parents were divorced .after 21 years of marriage, and her sister, Lady Joanna, after six. Marital trouble seems to run in the Townshend family. But not in the Bronfman's where it has come as such a profound, shattering shock.
