When England’s property tycoon Scot Young and his wife Michelle separated in 2006, the bitter battle in one of England’s most famous divorces began. Michelle maintained her estranged husband was worth billions and was hiding assets of which she was entitled to half. Scot allegedly created a business structure called “Project Marriage Walk” to hide money from her.
On November 23, 2013 a judge agreed that Scot hid approximately £45million from the court and ruled he give £20million to his ex-wife in one lump sum. Michelle Young called the amount of the ruling “a disgrace.”
