An ex-premiership footballer’s ex- wife has won an appeal to claim more than a third of his future income. Originally offered £250,000 maintenance, the Court of Appeal decided she would be awarded £406,500 a year which will be reviewed after four years.
The couple were married for seven years and they had three children until they divorced in 2002. At the time the woman agreed to not getting half his assets as she had only been married to him for seven years and the player offered her £150,000 per year which she rejected.
As well as receiving more than a third of his future income she has already been awarded two mortgage-free houses worth over £1 million and a £250,000 lump sum. The ex-football also pays child maintenance.
She is understandably delighted at the judgment:
“I am very relieved at the outcome of the appeal and the settlement agreed.
“However, it has been a difficult and stressful time for all of us and I have not enjoyed my family and I being in the media’s spotlight.
“I would like to ask everyone concerned to respect our privacy from this point on and help us to get back to normal as quickly as possible.
