Man Threatens to Re-Possess Ex-Girlfriend's Breasts

If your boyfriend gives you a loan so that you can get breast implants, what happens if you don't pay him back in full?

According to Anastasia, a woman in Germany, her ex-boyfriend, is seeking to re-possess her implants after she failed to completely reimburse him. The former couple allegedly had a deal: as long as the woman stayed with the man for a year, she wouldn't have to pay him back. The woman apparently admits that she signed an agreement that said she would stay with the man, named only as "Carsten," for at least a year if he paid for the implants.

The problem is, these lovebirds broke up before the year was up. Alas, the flames of their love only lasted two months. 

That isn't all that surprising considering the fact that the boyfriend found it necessary to have such a contract in the first place. It seems that the 20-year-old woman has only paid part of the money back. Her ex-boyfriend demanded the return of 4,379 euros (about $5,750), but the woman has only paid back 3,000.

Now her ex-boyfriend is demanding that she pay the rest, or he will get the police and repossessors involved.

It's certainly a strange case, that has left many wondering whether such is thing is legally possible in the U.S. Generally speaking, no.

The breast implants are not legally considered assets. The loan was therefore for the surgery itself and not the implants. Therefore Carsten could sue her for the funds. Even in that case, it is questionable whether a judge would find such a contract enforceable. It's possible it would be voided for public policy reasons. After all, just how does Carsten, the hopeless romantic that he is, envision repossession would go down?
