“I think u r idiotic, I love u.” This is one of the messages stock analyst Gautam Vora exchanged with former supermodel Viveka Babajee on chat, according to Viveka’s family.
The family released messages from the 37-year-old model’s chat and email accounts to back their claims that Vora had lied when he told the court and police that he was not Viveka’s boyfriend.
An email from Vora sent to Viveka’s account on a social networking site on May 28 read: “Call me babe…need to talk to you. And please don’t assume anything; have been totally loyal to u since we started seeing each other. You have no reason to doubt me. I love you very much.”
Another email from Vora sent on June 9 read: “Hi honey, my phone is out of money, so can’t call you or send text messages. Also, it was on silent so couldn’t hear it in my sleep…just woke up…call when you get this. Miss u. Love u.”
Vora had told the police that Viveka’s life was in turmoil and that he was helping her cope with her troubles. “…She was taking Zoloft [an anti-depressant] and was on heavy medication,” Vora’s statement said.
“As she was a good friend I used to visit her house sometimes and listen to her problems. We have also gone out a few times.”
The family claimed that his messages, however, tell a different story.
An email Vora sent to Viveka from Rome on June 12 said, “Hope u are having a wonderful day at FTV shoot…I can’t wait to see it. Am sure you are going to do extremely well my love... am extremely happy that you are getting really busy…can’t wait to be in Viva’s [Viveka’s] arms…my love…I love u.”
The model’s family members said Vora’s “lies” to the police have been bothering them. The family claimed that the couple were considering marriage seriously and had also matched horoscopes.
