Di Resta's Grandfather Runs a Brothel
However, while doing so, the German reporters have discovered some uncomfortable details about certain members of his family tree. And it's not related to racing, as it doesn't share any information about his racing pedigree, but about the fact that certain members of his family are in the “gentlemen's business”.
Let's start with aunt Delizia, who, according to the Bild newspaper in Germany, runs an adult entertainment club in Edinburgh, called 'Bottom's Up'. And since the business probably goes well in the family, her brother Tom (Paul's uncle) also seems to run a similar club in the Scottish capital, called “Fantasy Palace”.
And if you're wondering from who Tom and Delizia got their skills in running such businesses, find out that their 81-year old father – Paul's grandfather – is the proud owner of the Ambassador, a sauna/brothel. And Di Resta's father Louis is also a club owner, heading multiple such locations, among which the best known is “The Twig” in Bathgate.
“Yes,” 24-year-old Paul di Resta confirmed reluctantly, according to the aforementioned source, cited by the GMM news agency. “Part of my family is in the 'gentlemen's business'.”
