Richard Branson Profile, published in Open Road magazine

At one boarding school, he started an affair with the headmaster's pretty 18-year-old daughter Charlotte and one night a teacher spotted him sneaking out of her room. The headmaster expelled him on the spot, but Branson wrote a suicide note, gave it to another pupil and started walking slowly towards some cliffs near the school. Teachers came running after him and the expulsion was taken back.
