A former supermodel has been awarded £75million from her Saudi billionaire ex-husband after one of the highest-stakes divorce battles of its kind.
Christina Estrada wanted £196million from businessman Sheikh Walid Juffali to meet her ‘reasonable needs’ – which included two luxury houses, a huge clothes budget and five cars.
The 54-year-old model rejected an offer which, added to her own assets, would have given her some £37million to live on.
She was today awarded a £53million cash settlement at London’s High Court – with lawyers saying the payout is worth £75million when assets she has already been given are taken into account.
The awards means Ms Estrada, who already has a home in Beverly Hills, will get £2.5million to spend each year as well as £18million to buy a lavish property in London.
