Hong Kong wife wins $154 million divorce settlement

Hong Kong (CNN) -- A Hong Kong judge ordered a wealthy real estate mogul to pay his former wife $154 million in one of the city's largest divorce settlements.

The divorce award translates to HK $1.2 billion and dwarfs famous settlements in other countries.

In comparison, Paul McCartney was ordered to pay Heather Mills almost $50 million three years ago.

Court documents released Thursday detailed a breakdown of the ruling.

It includes a home in the city worth HK $250 million, a London residence valued at HK $30.5 million and HK $2.5 million to buy two cars.

Samathur Li Kin-kan and his wife, Florence Tsang Chiu-wing, married in 2000 and separated in 2008, according to court documents.

They lived a lifestyle "best described as just below that of a US- dollar billionaire," court documents said.

The wife told local media she was "delighted" as she left the courtroom smiling.

go to link for video of the wife



she's a lawyer btw and counter sued her father-in-law (for suing her for fraud) + her husband seems like lots of drama anyway she just hit a payday



edit: better article

Florence Tsang Chiu-wing is now the city's newest billionaire, thanks to a court judgment that awarded her HK$1.2 billion.

Tsang, who was beaming outside the High Court after the judgment, had claimed HK$5.5 billion in a lawsuit seeking ancillary relief following her divorce in 2008 from Samathur Li Kin-kan, a son of billionaire property tycoon Samuel Lee Tak-yee.

The case attracted extensive media coverage and gave the public a rare glimpse into the extravagant lifestyles of the seriously rich.

The Court of First Instance heard that Li lavished more than HK$100 million a year on himself. At one point he owned a Boeing business jet, two yachts, 28 cars and millions of dollars worth of wine, among other items, the court was told.

Lee - also known as Samuel Tak Lee - is the boss of Prudential Enterprise, which owns the landmark Prudential Hotel in Jordan.

As part of the judgment, the court referred the case to the Director of Public Prosecution for criminal investigation after it was found that the father and son might have committed forgery and perjury during more than 20 days of hearings filled with sensational evidence and accusations among the three parties.

The root of the marriage's breakdown was the wife's pregnancy. The court heard that the couple's marriage turned sour after the wife turned down his ultimatum for an abortion. This was followed by the discovery of his affair with another woman, leading to the end of their eight-year marriage in 2008.

Li told the court he had been "tricked" by his wife because she did not tell him it was a "risky time" to have sex. Since the birth of his daughter three years ago, Li said he had only seen her twice and did not want to be involved in her life.

Li's father had earlier initiated a lawsuit against his former daughter-in-law, alleging fraud for cancelling a post-nuptial agreement. Lee lost the case in England and mounted another legal action in Hong Kong.

The three settled the case in February, with the father and son admitting liability for "conspiracy to injure".

The court heard that after Li graduated from university, the father gave him 3.5 billion yen to start a property business in Japan. Under an agreement between the two, the father had the right to acquire shares of the company. The right was exercised in 2009.

Li said in court that he had no choice but agreed to conspire with his father to stop his ex-wife getting her hands on the money

"My father is the only one looking after me," he said in court. "If I pick a fight with him, I would ... be on the street. I have no other choice, so to speak."

The father said all along the son's assets were a retrievable gift from him. "In a word, everything is mine. From top to bottom, through life's journey until death, and throughout all the family changes and internal strife," Lee told the court.

so it sounds like they did have a pre-nup but the son agreed to cancel it and still had the gall to cheat on her

guess the brains belongs to the dad

You got to pay when you trade in for a younger model.

Rupert Murdochs new wife is the biggest gold digger out there.

I know in the UK, even with a Pre-Nup - the judge could still say that it was unfair at the time when they signed it - and still award her 50%.

That's what I was thinking too. When you're that rich, you could have a new girl every day. Why bother getting married?

Look at George Clooney. He dumped Elisabetta Canalis the moment she wanted him to commit. Now he's dating Stacy Keibler (18 years his junior).

yea but the wife probably had her own share of guys as well. Like Italian ballroom dancers or just random club guys, etc.

There are so many rich upper upper class married women who play with so many guys its not even funny. Last time I went to China I had a daughter and wife combo sitting beside me at a club, like a buy one get one free wtf. The rich husband and the son play their own share of girls, while the mom and daughter play their own share of guys as well.
