This long running case has now reached conclusion, with the Wife getting £3.3 million as part of the settlement and maintenance of £320,000 a year.
However, the Husband, Mr Fields asked to appeal the decision, but the Judge refused, adding that it was tragic they hadn't been able to resolve their financial agreement sooner and that the pair had spent over £1.2 million in legal fees in taking their case to a final hearing.
A former beauty queen has today won a £3.3 million share of her lawyer ex-husband's £6 million assets after a bitter High Court battle. Russian-born Ekaterina Fields, 42, is to get a £1.2 million lump sum and £1.3 million of other assets after a lengthy divorce court fight with American lawyer Richard Fields. In addition she will get £320,000 a year in maintenance to help keep her in the style to 'which she has become accustomed'. But the figure is less than half the £2.6 million lump sum and £500,000 a year Mrs Fields, who was voted Miss World University in 1990, had originally asked for. A judge has today hit out at the pair after they ran up lawyers' bills of more than £1 million fighting over money.
