PLAYMATE, TYCOON & A HIT MAN:

She was a pretty Playboy model; (Bridget Marks) he was a ‘married’ multi-millionaire (John Aylsworth).   They met in 1998, at a Manhattan dinner party of a mutual lawyer friend.  There was an instant attraction, despite the fact, she was in her thirties and he was a grandfather, in his fifties.

Their affair produced twin daughters, Scarlett and Amber.  Sparking one of the most vicious custody battles in recent years.

John Aylsworth and his wife Karen wanted custody of the twins.  He demanded that the twins be taken from their mother. Revealing, “I want the girls to move into my palatial estate in Malibu.”

Bridget was not going to give up custody of her babies without a fight.  Although she didn’t have as much money as Aylsworth, she pawned her jewelry and her family offered assistance to pay her high lawyer fees.

Although Aylsworth’s wife supported her husband’s demands, she admits to being devastated when she found out her husband’s mistress was pregnant.

Bridget claims, the couple constantly pressured her throughout her pregnancy to get an abortion.

Bridget Marks graduated ‘Smith College,’ at nineteen years old and has a Masters in International Relations from New York University.

She appeared nude in a 1992 ‘Playboy,’ feature on New York City debutantes.

John Aylsworth amassed a fortune in oil and is the chief operating officer of a gaming operation.

Marks claims she didn’t know Aylsworth was married when they met because he didn’t wear a wedding ring and he allegedly proposed and gave her a $7,000 diamond ring.  The couple also took trips together to Los Angeles and St. Louis.   Not long after their romance, Marks became pregnant.

Even after Marks gave birth, she claims, her sexual liaisons with Aylsworth continued sporadically.

The custody battle would eventually cost both sides more than $1.3 million dollars with Aylsworth winning the battle.

Marks was devastated as she cried uncontrollably.  She vowed to never give up.

Updates: Bridget Marks recently regained custody of her twin daughters and has written a bestselling book. A year ago, the tabloids reported that a former marine was allegedly hired (as a hit man) by an alleged boyfriend of Marks.  He was allegedly paid $72,000 according to the article, the alleged hit was never executed and this story disappeared from the headlines and had no bearing on the custody case.
