Do we have a thread for Blind Items? Posting it here now though, as I can't find any such thread and because it's supposedly happening, anyway, some think it's about Masako and Maxima, Maxima the one helping

Today's Blind Items - The Gilded Cage

The foreign born subject of this blind is probably permanent A list, even though many people may not be familiar with who she is.  I'll call her Ms. N.  When she was younger, she had a super bright future.  Not only was she beautiful, but she was genius-level smart.  Ms. N's beauty and intelligence got her on the radar of some powerful people who decided they wanted her to become a part of their family and family business.  She was approached many times with offers to join this family firm, but turned all of them down.  This firm wanted her to join up with them in such a bad way that they even approached Ms. N's family members, hoping that they would also pressure her to agree. Ms. N's father was particularly ruthless in pressuring his daughter to take this offer, since he wanted prestige and wealth for himself.

Eventually these combined campaigns finally convinced Ms. N. to agree to work for this family- and even worse, she was also convinced to marry one of their higher profile members.  This family was able to con Ms. N that this was an incredible offer and made promises of love, wealth, status and other opportunities which were pretty hard to resist.

As is always the case, the public facing image of this family is far different than the reality in private.  By the time Ms. N. realized the truth, it was too late to extricate herself from the situation.  This family exists in a strange bubble with bizarre traditions, many of which are rumored to include cruelty and violence.  Ms. N's spouse, whose public image is that of a devoted husband, is also rumored to be a very volatile man in private. Ms. N is said to have had a lot of problems with her health.  Insiders have whispered rumors for years that these health problems were actually miscarriages-- not caused by infertility but by of physical violence inflicted on Ms. N. from both the husband and other relatives.  If the rumors are true, then this is some really disturbing stuff. As you can imagine, this situation has taken a toll on Ms. N. mentally and physically over the years.  When she threatened to leave and expose this nightmare, the rumor is that her passport was taken away and she was confined to the family home.  Sometimes months would pass before anyone saw her.  When outsiders became concerned, they were told that Ms. N was mentally unstable, which continued for years.

After a long absence, Ms. N has recently surfaced publically again -- and the rumors floating around are that she is about to break away from her awful situation once and for all.  And when it happens, count on it happening in a very public and ugly way.  The reason is because Ms. N is being aided by another foreign born A-list public figure, who I will call Ms. D.   Ms. D is involved in a similar family firm and recently befriended Ms. N., mostly because she noticed telltale signs that Ms. N was in crisis.

There is whispering that Ms. D is helping Ms. N formulate an escape plan.  Ms. D is flamboyant, high profile and well liked by the public. She will have no problem blasting this story out into the public so that Ms. N gets MAXIMUM public sympathy.  And when that happens, those in Ms. N's family organization will be thrown into such chaos that there could be some serious consequences as a result.

Fits rather well with Masako...

Ms N for Nihon/Nippon (Masako)
Ms. D for Dutch (Maxima)

^ Maybe that's correct. It would explain a lot about Masako. Also, Maximum=Maxima ?

^ I thought exactly the same.

The only thing I don't understand is, that apparently the person wasn't mentally ill, but actually had miscarriage after miscarriage due to domestic violence. Now, the thing I don't get: why beat your wife up so much, she loses your baby, when you don't have an heir and only boys count? Unless the man is so violent, he doesn't give a f, or the babies were girls too, depending on the stage of a pregnancy.

Though the text says "tradition" and that violence is part of it - really?

And if this is true, fgs, why didn't anyone (from the family too!) step in and help the poor woman (Masako?)??

I am not sure if I believe it. Except the violence by the husband everyone knows about Masako and it's not surprising that the japanese RF is like that.

Also Max is friends with Masako since ages ago.
