Per today’s Guardian:
When 57-year-old Michel Madie arrived in New York in the 1980s, he quickly became one of the biggest names in real estate.
Ever since he has also been part of a growing polyamorous community, hosting open sexuality and swingers party inside one of his most prestigious properties.
The mogul tied the knot with Swedish civil engineering student Rasmus Foyer, 27, in December 2015 at the $12million converted church in Harlem, that has been dubbed the ‘Taj Marharlem’.
According to Narrative, one in five guests were current or former lovers of either groom.
After they said ‘I do’, the party went for another 24 hours, starting with a traditional Algerian dinner, and followed by belly and flamenco dancers, acrobats and a rotation of five gifted DJ’s spinning deep house, down-tempo and funk.
Since moving in to the enormous home, Madie has received countless complaints from neighbors who say it is really an unlicensed club. But Madie hasn’t let the the issues get in the way of his swanky shindigs.
The Guardian published several pictures of Madie/Chevalier and his child groom’s escapades. Here’s a sampling. Recognize anyone? The captions belong to the newspaper.

The place looks like a brothel. Would you want this man near your children or grandchildren? I’m asking you, Julie Albertson! Who’s that diving between your legs?
