Very sadly, after only 5 years together, David and Lara's marriage may be at an end. This is a marriage that the court would regard as a short marriage case. David is worth £16.3 million and Lara is worth £2.6 million. This is unlikely to be a case where there will be a 50/50 split of assets but hopefully they will be able to keep their case out of the court limelight and reach an amicable agreement. There are so many ways to achieve an out of court settlement now and when you have a public profile it is so important to try and maintain confidentiality which the out of court route preserves.
Apparently, the 43-year-old comedian and his 31-year-old model spouse - the mother of his son Alfred, two, have agreed on a trial separation. The publication reports that Lara left their London home on Tuesday night, leaving David 'devastated' - adding that he is determined to win her back.
