This is a judgment we had been waiting for. The Husband was trying to argue that his wife shouldn't share in his wealth because he had created it. The Judge did not agree.
A former private equity exec has been ordered to pay his ex-wife £72m - much more than he'd been offering. Randy Work, a former exec at Lone Star, said his estranged wife Mandy Gray should receive just £5m ($7.5m) of his wealth. He said his £150m ($225m) pot was protected by a post-nuptial agreement originally signed in Texas. Work's lawyers said his "special contribution" meant he should be awarded a greater share of the couple's fortune. But the judge refuted this, saying that his wife had also made a special sacrifice in raising their family.
