A 70-year-old man from Treviso, a city in the northern Italian region of Veneto, became embroiled in a bitter feud with his son after booking an escort who turned out to be his offspring's girlfriend.

When the father booked an escort in the nearby city of Vicenza, he got the shock of his life when she turned out to be his 40-year-old son’s South American girlfriend, Il Gazzettino reported. 

Clearly embarrassed, the pair promptly bid each other farewell, the newspaper said.

The man then pondered whether to tell his son that the woman was in fact an escort, and not the waitress she claimed to be, while at the same time exposing his use of the dating service.

Deciding honesty was the best policy, he told his son, a move which prompted a fight between the pair, Il Gazzettino said.

The incident happened four years ago but only recently came to light during a court hearing after the son decided to sue his dad for injuries.

The judge failed in his attempt to get the pair to make amends, and postponed the hearing.
