GOLD Coast playboy tycoon Travers “Candyman” Beynon is as protective of his daughter as any dad — but that’s not why he goes clubbing with her.
The Helensvale-based tobacconist franchise and property tycoon hit the Glitter Strip with teenage daughter and model Lucciana Beynon last Friday night.
Beynon tells ATG in no way was his appearance with her at SinCity Nightclub on the Orchid Ave party strip a chaperone situation.
He has every confidence his statuesque daughter, now 18, can handle herself: “She is a 5ft 10 half Venezuelan up-and-coming model.
“She gets a lot of attention but she can hold her own. I will always feel very protective of her as she is my daughter but she is a true Beynon and I don’t think anyone would want to mess with her.”
Along for the night was his son Valentino, who was headlining as DJ for the third instalment of a SinCity-Candyman collaboration party dubbed Sinful Candy.
Beynon Senior says he’s very happy with the SinCity link: “It was our third and most successful Sinful Candy. They have tripled in size and success over the last three months and has made Friday night the new Saturday night at SinCity.”
It wasn’t his first night out with Lucciana or Valentino who by all accounts love a party night out with dad.
According to Beynon Senior: “Lucciana, Valentino and I have a closer bond than any father/children relationship I’ve come across. We can do anything together and have a great time. She has watched me throw parties her whole life so she has waited a long time to party alongside me.”
