Brit tourist, 60, loses £90k life savings to murdered Sri Lankan toyboy husband, 26, whose family kept her prisoner until she ran out of money

A BRIT whose Sri Lankan toyboy husband she spent £90,000 on being with before he was murdered has now returned home with nothing.

Diane De Zoysa, 60, from Edinburgh, met Priyanjana De Zoysa, 26, while on holiday in Sri Lanka seven years ago and they wed just six months later.

But she later discovered he had wed behind her back – this time to a local teenager.

Diane was left heartbroken when he was then murdered in a blackmail plot, and was left ridden with debt and stranded in the country.

Before Priyanjana was killed, she even claimed that she became a “prisoner in her own home” and was held hostage by his family until she ran out of cash.

Speaking to The Daily Record, she said: “I just couldn’t stay there any longer. I kind of feel stupid now that I didn’t listen to my family and my friends because they said it was just about the money.

“I thought he did really love me but obviously he didn’t.”

The pair first met around six years ago while Diane was on holiday in Sri Lanka and Priyanjana was working in her hotel.

They kept in touch after she went home and they married seven months later when she returned for another holiday.

After several years of enduring a long-distance relationship, Diane packed up last year and moved to the small coastal town of Ahungalla, south of the capital Colombo.

She said she used the money from the sale of her property in Scotland to build a house for the couple.

But on May 30, he was gunned down at a friend’s house – with Diane claiming his killers were trying to extort cash from him.

She said: “They thought he was a rich man as he had a nice house, a minibus and a tuk-tuk.

“He paid them but they wanted more.”
