Ex-wife gets millions from lottery winner 10 years after leaving him

Euro MillionsEuro Millions: Ex-wife gets millions from lottery winner 10 years after leaving himRating:

A UK man who won $90 million in the lottery has been ordered to share his winnings with his ex-wife, who left him for another man 10 years ago.

Nigel Page, 43, had offered to give ex-wife Wendy — who is the mother of his 13-year-old daughter — $1.6 million as a gift, but she responded by seeing a lawyer and fighting for four times as much.

The court awarded Wendy a lump sum of $3.2 million which she can spend as she wishes after Page's push for it to be put into a trust for his daughter was rejected.

A family friend said the court battle had been horrendous for Page.

"Up to this point everyone got on pretty well. But what Wendy has done has ruined everything," the source was quoted as saying.

"Nigel has always provided for their daughter. Even when he was out of work he made sure she was all right.

"And right from the start Wendy was going to get a big gift."

Wendy — a human resources director at an investment firm — is thought to be the first ex-wife to have been awarded a slice of a divorcee's winnings.

It is also believed that Wendy has received a massive increase in child support payments for their daughter after Page won the Euro Millions lottery jackpot.

Page celebrated his win — which was England's third largest — by marrying his girlfriend Justine Laycock, 42, and moving into a new $10.5 million mansion next door to actress Liz Hurley in the Cotswolds.

Page gave his old $380,000 home and car to his cleaner.

Wendy reportedly celebrated her win with a bottle of champagne at her luxury Waterfront home in Gloucestershire.

Too bad. But I don't think $3.2 million out of $45 million (assuming 50% tax on the $90 million) is bad.

Extra xtra too bad because she left him.

I hope his daughter Page is in her teens where he don't have too many more years to pay on child support.

    I disagree with the court ruling especially if she had left him for another man.

    Not that he would miss $3.2M, I think it's just greed on the ex-wife's part.

    It seems like some people will do just about anything.

          I Agree!   the ex wife was really greedy.....the ex husband didn't have to give her anything if he didn't want to but he did..and the ex wife still wasn't satisfied with that.....and the courts to deny the ex husband to put the money into a trust fund for the daughter.....I thought was wrong also.... Smash  what's to say that there will be any money left for the daughter to go to college when she gets older.....

            It doesn't matter because HE will have to pay college costs also.  Lets hope he has something left.

                What an unmitigated outrage. How does this miserable, greedy witch have a right to somebody's money that she was divorced from 10 years prior after leaving him for another man? This is absolutely, unbelievably outrageous.

                They must have liberals in the court system over there, that's all I can figure.

                You can cut the karma with a knife around this one though.

                Nigel will have good karma for offering the trifling trollop over a million and a half as a gift, free money, no strings attached.

                Wendy will have bad karma for being greedy and taking what didn't belong to her and what she had no right to. That money is going to bring her grief sooner or later.

                I've seen it too many times.

                      They should live the same lifestyle as him? She deserves this money?

                      Why is that exactly? Shouldn't her new husband be keeping her in her preferred lifestyle?

                      Why would it be the job of the man she left ten years ago to provide her with a millionaire's lifestyle now, praytell?

                      He's always provided well for his child and will do even more now.

                      What the hell has the old hag ex-wife got to do with it?
