I imagine it’s not easy being rich.
Con artists are always looking for “investors” and almost everything you would deign to own (cars, clothes, islands) cost more that what the jealous masses are buying.
The rich are so miserable one billionaire, investor Tom Perkins, compared “class demonization” to being Jewish in Nazi Germany.
When it comes to relationships, many wealthy individuals are left to wonder if their friends, wives and/or husbands love them or their bank account.
In London, a millionaire who asked his ex-wife to stay on as housekeeper for him and his new wife, probably didn’t think about things like that.
The man, in his 70s, told the court he is “bewildered” by the “aggressive” behavior of his ex-wife after he explained he was moving the younger woman and her child into their home.
A London High Court judge probably added to the confusion by telling the man his ex-wife is entitled to half his $20 million fortune.
The man and ex-wife married in the 1970s and divorced in the 1990s but continued to live together and maintained a “usual” relationship, reports The Telegraph.
A family law expert said it is pretty rare for a man to ask an ex-wife to serve as housekeeper. In 40 years of experience, she had only heard of one other case — a Thai woman who had been tricked into divorce by her British husband stayed in the home “effectively as a housekeeper.”
After that man’s death a judge ruled the first wife was entitled to a share the home with the second wife.
Let’s hope they hired a male housekeeper.
