“Dr. Doom” economist Nouriel Roubini has been forced to remove his giant hot tub — famed for being packed with hot young models at his wild parties — from the roof of his Manhattan penthouse by the city.
Roubini, dubbed Dr. Doom for predicting the financial crisis, ran afoul of the Department of Buildings after he did not get approval for the tub, large enough to hold 10, and the wooden roof deck he had built at his East First Street bachelor pad for his boisterous bacchanals.
Now Roubini has been slapped with a violation and was ordered to remove the Jacuzzi, the deck and a party room he built, complete with a bar and bathroom, on the roof of his party penthouse. ...
Roubini, 55, is notorious for his parties ... He bullishly boasted to the mag, “The recession has been great for me.”
Of the many models who attend his bashes, “They love my beautiful mind,” he told the magazine. “I am ugly, but they’re attracted to the brains. I’m a rock star among geeks, wonks and nerds.” And what makes his parties so great are “fun people and beautiful girls,” Roubini said. “I look for 10 girls to one guy.”
