When you’re a Russian billionaire, any heated exchange, even if you’re on live TV can swiftly be ended by punching your opponent in the face. That’s what happened with Alexander Lebedev, when he appeared on a Russian talk show to discuss global economics. Things got heated, he jumped from his chair and took a well-placed swing.
Chaos erupted on a television chat show in Russia after billionaire Alexander Lebedev punched another guest in the face. The businessman, who owns two British newspapers, was debating the threat of a new global economic crisis when things became a little heated.
Lebedev rose out of his chair and squared up to Sergei Polonsky, who’s a former real estate baron. The first punch was thrown and toppled the guest off the studio platform. Security stepped in as the cameras kept rolling.
Shit, if I were a Russian billionaire, I’d be punching everyone in the face. Fuck ‘em. Oh, did I break your nose? Here’s a thousand dollars, get that shit fixed.
