Can I have £2 Million to Buy Strawberries?

The truth is stranger than fiction, as they say. This week a prominent Emirati family found itself before the High Court in what has been billed as the biggest divorce case in English legal history. The youngest of six wives was awarded more than £500 million by way of divorce settlement. To get to this figure the court conducted an analysis of the parties’ spending and apparently at one point £2 million was spent in one go on strawberries for family and staff. That’s a lot of strawberries by anyone’s reckoning.  We haven’t worked out how many punnet’s that amounts to (answers on a postcard). But even this family had to justify its spending. Setting out in detail your resources and outgoings is an essential part of the divorce process and honest disclosure is a key part of the proceedings, even if you have to confess to over-spending on fruit.
