A 61-year-old man from Indonesia was dubbed the “Playboy King” for having purportedly been married 87 times.
The man, identified as Kaan, is a farmer from Majalengka, West Java province. His first marriage took place when he was only 14-years-old with a girl who was then 16-years-old. Although their marriage lasted for two years, she asked for a divorce due to his bad behavior at the time, according to Kaan. After the divorce, Kaan reportedly felt angry with his ex-wife and sought “spiritual” knowledge to make many women fall in love with him.
“However, I don’t want to do things that are not nice to the women I know and refuse to play with their feelings,” Kaan told local media. “Instead of committing immorality, it is better for me to get married.”

The “Playboy King” said he was planning his 88th wedding with one of his ex-wives because he could not refuse her request.
“I plan to marry my ex-wife from the 86th marriage,” Kaan reportedly said. “Even though we have been apart for a long time, the love between us is still strong, and I refuse to play around with it.”
“All this time, she is still ‘crazy’ about me even though we were only married for a month,” he added.
