Socialite

 Sammy Davis Jr. and Rubi enjoying drinks with company. 
To give an idea how expert he was in the field of romance, he once spent two hours teaching Sammy Davis Jr. the proper way to kiss a woman’s hand. 

Spy

The FBI suspected he was a political assassin. They curated an over 100 page report on Porfirio Rubirosa. After he lost his diplomatic immunity, he was questioned by the New York District Attorney concerning the disappearance of Trujillo opponents Sergio Bencosme in 1935 and Jesus Galíndez in 1956, but was never charged. Many think he was Ian Fleming’s secret inspiration for James Bond 007.
