Citigroup CEO Richard Parsons

…Is a mistress. That’s no secret. But when I read that Citigroup CEO Richard Parsons had a mistress, a certain image came to mind. Men of that caliber of fortune–at least from what I’ve seen (Russell? S. Carter? Diddy? Bob Johnson?)– usually have a “special” kind of taste in women. So I was surprised when I saw this:

Beautiful, no doubt, but unexpected. Cooper runs a non profit organization for orphaned children in Liberia. It was just revealed that she and Parsons had a lovechild last August.
