About Henry Junkins Topping, Jr.

Henry J. Topping Jr. was a millionaire socialite and third husband of actress and sex symbol Lana Turner. He proposed to Turner at the 21 Club in Los Angeles by dropping a diamond ring into her martini. Although worth millions when they married, Topping suffered heavy financial losses due to poor investments and excessive gambling. Turner finally divorced Topping when she realized she could no longer afford to keep them in the lavish lifestyle to which they had grown accustomed.
