From the New York Daily News
It’s no secret that Citigroup board Chairman Richard Parsons has been working for months to repair the financial giant.
But, until now, even his closest associates didn’t know he also was wrestling with a personal crisis – how to tell his wife and three children he has fathered a child with another woman.
Parsons and model-philanthropist MacDella Cooper are the parents of a baby girl named Ella.
The 61-year-old former Time Warner chairman said only: “This is a private matter, and I prefer not to talk about it at this time.”
Cooper, 32, also declined to discuss the circumstances of her daughter’s birth.
