FORMER Formula One boss Max Mosley, who died on Monday aged 81, waged a war against the press for revealing he took part in a sadomasochistic orgy with prostitutes.
But when was the sex party that Mosley attended? Here is everything you’ll need to know…
When was Max Mosley’s orgy?
The News of the World revealed in 2008 that Mosley took part in a sadomasochistic orgy with prostitutes.
The paper printed photographs and published a video of his involvement in the sex party.
The sex session took place on March 28, 2008.
What happened at the orgy?
A five-hour recording of the orgy showed the millionaire, whose Hitler sympathiser dad Oswald led the British fascist movement, surrounded by prostitutes in military gear performing sadistic acts.
According to the report from the News of the World, Mosley, who called himself Mike, visited an apartment in London on March 28.
He was said to have had £2,500 with him in cash to pay the five prostitutes.
One dominatrix had arrived at the apartment earlier with uniforms and whips including a modern Luftwaffe jacket.
It is said that Mosley was tied up in chains as one of the women beat him with a cane until he bled.
Mosley then went on to beat two of the prostitutes who were wearing striped uniforms and counted out the lashes in German.
At the time his wife, Jean Mosley (nee Taylor), was said described as “the unseen presence at his High Court victory”.
What did Justice Eady say about Nazi connotations at the orgy?
Mosley sued the News of the World in 2008 for invading his privacy after it printed the images and published the video of him at the orgy.
During the court case, Mr Justice Eady quoted the News of the World’s headline which was: “‘F1 Boss Has Sick Nazi Orgy With 5 Hookers”.
Mr Justice Eady ruled in favour of Mosley saying there was no Nazi element to the orgy, as the newspaper had claimed, and that the story was not in the public interest.
He decided that although the young women “victims” wore striped pyjamas they were not necessarily Nazi-related clothes.
This led Mosley to pump millions of pounds into anti-press campaigns as part of his crusade against newspapers.
Did Max Mosley take legal action against Google?
Yes he did.
In 2014 Mosley launched legal action against Google in the UK demanding that it remove images of him at his S&M party.
Mosley alleged that Google UK and its parent firm Google Inc breached the Data Protection Act and misused private information.
The millionaire had won similar claims against Google in Germany and France.
In May 2015, Mosley settled with Google over the images of him.
Mosley’s lawyer Tanja Irion said: “The dispute is settled, to the satisfaction of both sides” and that the agreement was confidential.
She went on to say that her client did not want to “jeopardise it” by commenting, but described Mosley as “happy”.
