A brief superyacht escapade can be fatal to a career. It happened to Turkey’s finance minister, 41-year-old Berat Albayrak, who, believing he would not get caught, indulged in a wedding getaway aboard a luxury yacht with one of Turkey’s most famous actresses, 36-year-old Ozge Ulusoy. The allegedly secret boat vacation took place in the crystal clear waters of the coast near Antalya. Are you all right? Not at all.

State escapade

Berat was paparazzied by local media in his allegedly hot sex-based getaway. The rumor immediately reached Turkey’s president, “Sultan” Recep Tayyp Erdogan, who did not take it well at all, not least because the minister is his son-in-law, having married one of his two daughters, Esra. Newspapers in the former Ottoman Empire also adumbrated that the galleon cruise was financed with state money. Gossip reports that when he returned home to his veiled wife Esra, he was confronted not only by his furious partner but even by Erdogan himself, who is known to have a very tough temper.

Goodbye politca

Albayrak had an obvious hematoma under his right eye the next day. The embarrassment of the government, which is struggling against a very strong economic crisis and a sharp decline in consensus, is obvious. Berat Albayrak is already given out of state posts. The escapade with the provocative and famous actress aboard the superyacht cost him dearly. Fatal to his political ambitions.
