Walked Out Ten Years Ago, But Came Back Quick For Euromillions Win.

Recommended Posts

I never understand these uber rich people, why don't they just hire an assassin or something?

Heh Felix Dennis got it right decades ago, he said:

"If it flies, fornicates or floats, rent, it always ends up cheaper in the end."

I'm no expert, but how could he have had a clean break when there was a 3 year old daughter involved?

How would that work?

I think it means a financial 'clean break' rather than a moral one. :rolleyes:

So he'd still have to care for the child, and it seems like he did do this before the win, but this woman wouldn't be able to make this claim for extra money just because he's got it now.

You have to be a very brave, or stupid, man to trust a bird.

Ridiculous.

I can not even begin to imagine how this is justified.

I seriously doubt that even a small number of women would consider this fair or reasonable.

I suspect that the few who do would dwindle when it is pointed out that their ex hubby could do likewise.

As presented, the law does look an ass. Still, I'll be generous to her, she'll be penniless within 3 years and "latest fella" will be laughing his **** off after he's scammed her for a "business venture".

I hope the daughter grows up to know whatever the true story is and is allowed to make her on mind up about things.

he won 56m.

I don't think 2m is going to break the bank...

wouldnt break the bank if he gave me £2mill but I dont think anyone would see that as fair either

It's the principle though. He offered her £1million straight up when he won but she was greedy enough to threaten court action to get more. £1 million to a woman who broke your heart (10 years ago!) seems more than generous to me.

It wasn't even under the pretence of child maintenance - the £2 million she's got has no strings attached as he will support the child separately!

I hope there's a clause in the settlement that she can't claim for more again in future so he can put this behind him and finally get away from her greed.

True. He can fairly easily forget it if he's mentally healthy himself.

If I was him I'd put a clause in the deal that she never phoned, wrote, emailed or intentionally came within 100 metres of him again.

Brilliant. A female poster just posting the exact thing I would expect. Thanks. :D

Whether 2m is going to break the bank or not is not the point. Only a female would fail to understand this.

Not your fault - your crazy minds are wired differently !!

PS I hope you are a bird !!

Your right, it won't. Paying 2m to a **** who cheated on him, and then walked out with his daughter 10 years ago, that might break something....

If I were him, I'd spend another 2m to ensure she doesn't enjoy a single penny of that money, and ANOTHER 2m to ensure that my daughter wasn't impacted in anyway.

But then, I'm not known for my forgiving nature :angry:

I suspect the bit in bold would be the worst bit, most mature people can get over being cheated on sexually in time, shit happens.

Remember, giving her a miserable life is hardly going to improve his daughters situation.

My reasoning behind my comments is:

He could of course have taken her to court - but at the centre of this is the child they made together.

He should have given her nothing and fought for residence ... After all with money it's easy to get a good solicitor and "bribe" the child into spending more time with him. But that would be really unkind on the kid and waste a lot of money and in the end the kid might have decided that she liked her mum best even though she had no money. A judge also might not like the fighting aspect.

However as a sane and rational man he's avoided legal action which would have been horrid for the child, and avoided any futher action from her by getting the clean break agreement signed now.

His biggest mistake was telling people about the win - or at least the size of it.

If he'd told people he'd won £2M then she'd have been cheeky and asked for £100k maybe...

She is the mother of his child and although she's a cheating scumbag he's got over that and that makes him the bigger person.

Took yourself a long time to work out a way out of that one. :)

Why not just be honest ? You came up with the standard female response to this situation. And when you read it back to yourself and were questioned on it you realised you were being completely unreasonable. Like a great number of females are. No great biggie.

And may I add I have discussions with woman about this sort of stuff quite regularly. And the interesting thing is many woman agree.

The guy was obviously a schmuck, his first mistake was getting married. His second was going public with the win. The third mistake was offering 1 million to the woman, as in a courtroom this would remove any doubt that the woman deserved any money at all, as he himself, by his actions, believed she did. The court would only then decide the amount, probably using the £1 million as a starting point. I'm sure his lawyer pointed this out to him, hence the out-of-court settlement.

Good for him though, it's a small portion of his holdings. He should enjoy his life now and remember the lessons: a) Don't ever get married. B) Don't be a show-off and c) Don't offer a woman free money unless you want her to **** you in the ***.

It's not about the woman and it's not about justice, it's about the daughter, my guess is that those on this thread who don't see that don't have children.

If my daughter lived with her mother and not me, (this could happen though we're still together at present!) and I had 56m quid, I'd willingly sacrifice 2m quid to the mother whether she deserved a penny of it or not, in the hope that it would improve the life of my daughter. The only exception would be in the case that she ill-treated the girl, which is unlikely, most mothers love their children after all.

Fortunately this bloke seems to have his priorities right, he's still 54m up after all....

Don't have children myself. However I have known a fair few whose parents (Parent) were mega rich and kids did not want for anything.

Greatly increases the chances of the young un growing up to be a grade A spolit wee ****.

The guy's a fool for a number of reasons. It was particularly stupid of him to give his £235,000 house to his cleaner. No, it's not generous; it's just showing off. Every friend and relative will now see what they get in this context. How much does his best mate now think he deserves? What about his relatives? What about the postman? Surely his ex-wife, who's brought up his child for the last decade, is worth more than four times the cleaner? This settlement with his ex is probably just the start of it. I bet he's lost a load of friends already, not because they're greedy but because he's monetised their friendship. He'll soon learn that you can't by friends even with £56m - well, not genuine one's at any rate.

Correct.

If he'd been smart he would have kept it quiet until the daughter was of adult age. At that point he could set up his daughter for life, completely bypassing this horrible excuse for an ex-wife. The ex exploited the child and used her as leverage.

Won't somebody think of the children!

Oh, he already did:

The £2million lump sum she agreed to accept is entirely hers to spend as she wishes - after a bid by Nigel to pay it into a trust for Ella was vetoed.

Wendy is also believed to have obtained a huge increase in maintenance payments for their daughter - up from £150 a month to £2,000.

Who knows he might also be planning to pay for other stuff on top of that as well. He can afford it, at least.

Money can be spent wisely on children as on anything else. It frequently isn't, but it can be.
