    Gay millionaire or bisexual millionaire?

  2. so man makes a fortune and wife expects half in divorce settlement , whatever happened to women wanting to do things for them selves?

    1. She does want to do things for her self! she just wants half of every thing to make it possible! divorce law made gold digging legitimate. The golden rule of divorce “What is mine is mine what is yours is mine” rich or poor if her divorce lawyer has an attitude “You!” have a problem! Best advice given to a friend… “divorce and then come out”

      It goes both ways.

      1. It does??? surprise me with a few names of women who had to give away half of their fortune! You won’t need many fingers or toes to count them I’ll bet!

    3. Why should one adult support another adult when a relationship breaks up? Obviously where there are children involved they have to be provided for by both partners, but thats a seperate issue.

      If someone has made a bad choice in a relationship should they be compensated? If I make a decision to buy some shares that flop should I be compensated for life?

    So they’ll only have a measly £150 million each? Shocking!

  4. Don Harrison 5 Sep 2011, 7:15pm

    Hope the woman does not donate it to the Tory party

  5. There is something inexplicably attractive about multi millionaires! ;)

    1. Gold digger! (just kidding!) but it does prove the point that a lot of people “love” to become millionaires!

    2. ‘Inexplicably’???

  6. Civilized deal. Bless them.

  7. Oh the poor man.

    He raided everyones pensions to line his own pockets whilst lying to his wife and employer.

    Prick.

    No time for queers who still can’t stop hiding their sexuality. This day and age is is no excuse.

    Especially in regards to SHAM marriages as he was in.

    1. Why is no consideration given to the possibility that he could be bisexual? Does everyone have to either straight or gay when it is patently obvious thats not how the real world works?

  9. Millionaires divorce every day. Why is this news?

    1. burningworm 6 Sep 2011, 9:35am

      Him being a fag makes it pink news.

      1. Keith Farrell 14 Nov 2011, 5:34pm

        I dont like the use of the word fag, please if you there are many better word to use

    2. It was also reported in the Sunday Times, you might want to ask them why it was news too.

    3. The real question Keith is, why do you care? And why spend your time on a gay news website?

      1. No. The real question that I asked was “why is this news” and nobody actually knows!
        What next, “gay man goes shopping”.

        1. You’re here reading it, aren’t you, muppet? Obsessed with gay stuff, aren’t we, even the no-news items? Did you ever go to that toilet in the end Keith No lying, now, it’s hard for you not to, but try.

          1. Jock S. Trap 9 Sep 2011, 11:27am

            Exactly!!

    4. It was reported elsewhere, the Sunday Times for example: why don’t you ask them why it’s news?

      1. I did and they sid.” It is reported on Pink News, why not ask them?”

        1. silly Gumbo..

        2. I find that as hard to believe as most of what you write, Keith. And as boring.

          1. Boring? Oh, you have no idea….. on and on and on he goes about sex with all sorts of things. He’s basically a sex starved mad person with delusions of importance. Now you’d think that would make an interesting combination, wouldn’t you? We were sorely disappointed….

  10. This guy was a hedge-fund manager?

    I hope he loses more than half.

    What type of amoral, selfish @$$hold would want to work in such a job.

    I hope his tax bill is quadrupled.

  11. AND I NOTICED THEY SAID THAT THE WIFE WAS CONSERVATIVE, NOT A GOOD MOVE FOR A GAY MAN TO HAVE MADE. ITS NICE THAT THE DIVORCE WAS AMICABLE, BUT, FROM NOW OWN GAY MEN AND WOMEN , DO NOT MARRY OR GET IN CONSERVATIVE PARTIES WHERE YOU NO THE PEOPLE DO NOT LIKE YOU , THEY TELL YOU IN YOUR FACE EVERYDAY, LOOK AT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IN THE US, THE GAY LOG CABINS HAD TO SUE THE OTHER REPUBLICAN PARTY FOR ATTACKING AND ABUSING THE GAY MILITARY WHICH TOLD THEM IF THEY AS GAY SENATORS WHERE IN THE MILITARY THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN HARRASSING AND ABUSING THEM ALSO, NEVER CONDONE THE WRONGING OF OTHERS THE LOG CABIN REPUBLICANS HAS NO BUSINESS EVEN IN SUCH A BIGGOTED PARTY, WHAT DO THEY KEEP GETTING IN THERE FOR THEIR OWN ENIMESES CAMP, THEY ARE SIMPLY NOT LIKE IN THEIR OWN PARTY WHICH SHOULD TELL THEM SOMETHING IF YOU MARRY DONT MARRY YOUR ENEMIE OR SOMEONE WHO HURTS PEOPLE LIKE YOU OR YOUR RACE JUST BECAUSE OF SKIN COLOR IT MAKES YOU A FOOL, THEY DONT LIKE YOU DEEP DOWN EITHER, AND AT HOME ALSO

  12. So basically he used a woman for ‘target practice’ before deciding he preferred guys and she’s going to make a packet from it.

    1. I wouldn’t mind that if it meant I got £150-million for it. It’s just a shame she’s a tory.

  13. The current record is £100 million, paid by Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky to his former wife.

    Actually Bernie Ecclestone’s ex-wife Slavica is worth over £700m as a result of her divorce.

    1. Imposter

  14. If the man had not been a homosexual, would the headline be “Straight millionaire faces one of the UK’s most expensive divorces”
    Of course not. But since there are no such thing as men in the gay brigade, only ‘gay men’, ‘gay singers’, ‘gay actors’ we see that the gay brigade are absolutely defined by their sexuality.

    1. No, Keith. We have been defined that way for centuries by homophobic religions and cultures. It’s just that we have to resist those things in order to have a rounded and celebratory life which includes our sexuality.
      But I agree about this article. I find the antics of the filthy rich of all sexualities a bit of a yawn, except when they are pillaging the rest of us, which is pretty often.

      1. Pink News in neither a religion or a culture yet it’s headline reads “Gay Millionaire”

        1. quibbling now ???

        2. What PN is or is not was irrelevant to my point.

        3. You mean the same way you’re just simple dull old Keith, instead of “schizophrenic sex-obsessed Keith”, because having a mental health issue like yours is not a religion or culture?

    2. It’s probably something you’ve not noticed Keith, but minorities are frequently identified as such, even or perhaps especially in sources serving that minority (you clearly haven’t noticed this is a gay website, created by and for gay people). In the same manner as when Lord Taylor was recently tried and jailed he was referred to as black peer, or the Hinduja brothers are frequently referred to as Asian billionaires.

      1. Thank you, Rehan. Exactly.

    3. It’s because pinknews reports on absolutely anything that could possibly be related to a gay news story. You should have picked up on this by now…

    4. Jock S. Trap 9 Sep 2011, 11:29am

      Well I guess being that this is a LGBTQI news site it makes the story relevent, unlike Most of your comments.

      If you don’t like it, don’t spend so much time on it.

  15. Should have got a prenup. Stupidity should be painful.

  16. Jock S. Trap 9 Sep 2011, 11:20am

    I have to say if the split was “amicable.” why this story?
