The ex-husband of an LA layer accused of swindling her firm out of $10.2million and staying in luxury suites in Las Vegas has said she ‘broke his heart’ after stealing from him.
Sara Jacqueline King, 39, allegedly blew through the money at the Wynn in Las Vegas and used the money to fund her own ‘extravagant lifestyle’.
She is being sued by her former employer, LDR International, for the total amount – but claims that she only has $11.98 to her name after parting her way through the money at the $300-a-night-hotel.
Her second husband Kamran Pahlavi is the grandson of Iran’s Princess Ashraf and described King as having a ‘lavish lifestyle’ and being the ‘best-dressed woman’ he had ever met.
The pair met in 2018 and married in 2022 after King divorced her first husband – with the duo becoming inseparable.

He introduced her to LDR International, with the layer billing herself as a rising legal star with a dream of running for Congress as a Republican.
Speaking to The Daily Beast he said: ‘We were very much in love, she was a beautiful, smart, classy, charismatic and fun lady, and I was literally heads over heels about her.
‘She already had a lavish lifestyle and was probably the best-dressed woman I had ever met. Her sister was a lawyer, her brother-in-law was a lawyer.
‘Her parents were very successful in the insurance business and very well-educated people. She would continuously send me pictures of her jackpots and cash she would receive.
‘None of the employees from the high-limit room, not her host, with whom I thought I was close to, ever told me she was losing a dime. They said there were ups and downs but she was winning in total.’
King’s winning streaks would lead to her spending thousands at Dior, Chanel and Rolex – as well as bragging that she was going to buy a luxury boat.
A lawsuit filed at the California Central District court accused King of breaching her contract, fraud and civil theft and included several pictures of her with NFL stars such as Aaron Rodger, Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes.
Former friends of the lawyer have also come forward to say that she swindled them out of thousands after convincing them she had high-profile connections.

Her ex-husband Kamran Pahlavi has ‘substantiated’ the accusations and ‘fled to Morocco’, with King accused of gambling 24/7 while staying in the hotel
British Virgin Island firm LDR claims that they extended a series of loans to King Family lending from January to October 2022 as part of a business investment.
She promised to use the funds for loads to third-party borrowers and was handed $10.2million in 97 loans.
King claimed that they were secured by collateral, including luxury cars, yachts, designer handbags, jewelry, watches and earnings from professional sports contracts.
The suit shows photos of the lawyer with several NFL stars, which they claim were used to help boost her profile.
It alleged that she ‘engaged in a massive fraud’ and there were ‘no third-party loans from King Lending to and third party borrowers’.
Pahlavi has ‘substantiated’ the accusations and ‘fled to Morocco’, with King accused of gambling 24/7 while staying in the hotel.
He filed for divorce from King in late December, citing irreconcilable differences, with the couple separating after just nine months together, according to court records.
Once he realized that her loan firm was an alleged sham, he moved to Morocco, where he had previously set up a business.
One pal, Yumi Sturdivant said that she handed King $10,000 after they reconnected and was conned by her
Lawyers for the lending company – which used to employ the LA lawyer as an agent – say that King recently told them she has no money. A photo included in the suit shows King’s allegedly emptied bank accounts
The hotel developer added: It ended terribly. She betrayed me. Lied to me. Stole from me. Embarrassed me. Humiliated me. That’s not bad for a reason to break up.
‘When I realized what she had done, I left and never looked back. To tell you the truth it kills me to do this, but she is sick and she needs to be stopped before she scams the wrong person and she gets in real trouble.
He claims that King sent him hostile messages after the breakup – adding ‘Just wait and see, your time is coming’.
In April, King’s first husband filed a lawsuit against her, claiming that she foraged his signature n certain documents in order to secure a $250,000 loan on their Newport Beach home.
A notice of default was then recorded against the $3million property ‘as a result of the fraudulent loan remaining unpaid’.

King is also accused of sending ‘racist’ text messages to her former partner about his new partner saying: ‘If the whore is in my house Shw [sic] better hide. She’s next on my list’.
She is also being sued by George Poulos, who filed a complaint against King and her company in Orange County – claiming he invested $125,000 and was never repaid and received ‘strange and threatening messages’.
In September, a financial company that leases luxury cars sued King and her law firm after claiming that the attorney owed them $300,000 in relation to her lease of a Rolls-Royce Dawn 2019.
The California Highway Patrol impounded the vehicle in 2021 when King was just 19 months into a 48-month lease.
King also added an odometer tampering device which violates state and federal law – reducing the vehicle’s value.
A spokesperson for the Wynn said, ‘King is no longer permitted on-property at Wynn Las Vegas.’
The facade of the Wynn is seen on the Las Vegas strip. Lawyers say it was there that the LA lawyer took up residency for several months while carrying out the alleged fraud
The lawsuit claims that King presented them with ‘with fraudulent, falsified, and altered King Lending bank statements’ and that ‘she altered the bank statements to show deposits/payments by third-party borrowers that were in fact never made.’
It also claims that she sent photos to LDR and their agent Laurent R in order to gain their ‘trust and confidence.’
She sent them a picture of herself with the NFL players at a Capital One golf tournament at the Wynn Golf club in 2022.
King is now claiming that she has no money and has a paltry $11.98 in her bank account which is demonstrated by a screenshot.
The suit claims that as of February 9th King was still asking for more money so she could ‘try and make back the money she has stolen’.
She also said that she had borrowers who were in the NHL, NBA and MLB as well as a friend who was a ‘hair extension person’ for the Kardashians.
The lawsuit claims King also ‘falsely represented’ that King Lending received $6.3 million in loan repayments from borrowers and ‘redeployed’ the fund to cover more loans.
