Millionaire asks ex-wife to stay on as maid

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.

When the wife gets her $10 mil, I’ll be her husband/pool boy/maid.

Personally I wouldn’t want an ex-wife lurking about in my house, that would make ‘Snakes on a Plane’ seem like a picnic.

This is not so farfetched as she already knows where everything goes. This saves a lot of time.

Typical. Rich people like this make me sick.
Meanwhile REAL working people like nurses, firefighters, construction workers are making poverty wages.

This strategy also controls the possibility of said millionaire being financially baron from any future ex-wives. Check mate!

Millionaire: Is this coffee? Ex-wife/maid: Most of it.

The re-legalization of Hemp for farm and industrial production is the greatest step in the direction of freedom we have seen in this country since it was essentially taxed out of production in the 30s. Let’s hope this bill passes.

I never would have asked my Ex to stay on as a maid, not after witnessing how she kept the place for all those years we were together.

WTH??? Keeping the ex on board? Oh no, absolutely not!

There is a reason they are called EX-wives; Just as they are called EX-husbands.

I would not want my “ex” around any more than she would want me me hanging around.

Split the junk, call it done, and leave one another alone.
