The couple from London could not be identified, but his judgment reveals the man, who has interests in a portfolio of property in the capital, was in his 70s, and the partner in her 50s.

The couple divorced in the 1990's after nearly 20 years of marriage but continued to live together in the same house, treating the divorce as formality. 

That was until the British millionaire decided to move his girlfriend of 5 years and her 12-year-old child into the house.

At that point, he apparently asked his ex-wife if she would continue living in the house with them but as their housekeeper.

He couldn't understand why she, through her lawyers, "had become so aggressive" about this new proposed living arrangement.

Surprisingly, she turned down his proposal, taking half of her husbands estate instead. Over £6 million in total.
