Betar Jerusalem sponsor Guma Aguiar was forcibly admitted to the Abarbanel Psychiatric Hospital overnight Wednesday following a court order.
Aguiar apparently come out with a series of seemingly bizarre remarks, including a claim to having met Gilad Schalit in Gaza.
Israel Radio reported that the Brazilian-American energy tycoon had only arrived for the last 20 minutes of Saturday’s soccer match at Teddy Stadium between Betar and Bnei Sakhnin, saying his late arrival was due to him having visited the captured IDF soldier.
In the legal annals of Broward County, and the often furious back-and-forth between people suing one another for supposed lying, swindling, cheating, sleeping around and other misdeeds, this may be a first.
The director of one of South Florida’s most generous foundations, the Lillian Jean Kaplan Foundation, believes he is the Messiah and has been spending the foundation’s millions to bolster his image, a lawsuit filed by his uncle claims.
The alleged Messiah wannabe, Guma Aguiar, dismisses his uncle’s assertions as nonsense. If he truly believed he was the savior, he said, he would belong in a mental institution.
