British lotto winner ordered to pay £2m to ex wife of 10 years

£2 million

Back in February, 44 year old Nigel Page won £56 million playing the Euromillions jackpot lotto game. It was the third largest lottery win in British history.

Nigel Page was recently ordered by courts to pay £2m of his winnings to his ex wife, who left him for another man more than ten years ago. Wendy Page, 43, tried to get £8m from the jackpot winner, but settled out of court for a quarter of that amount.

Mr. Page offered to put the £2m into a trust fund for their 13 year old daughter, but the idea was shot down.

The legal president for the case is a rule called the ‘clean break’ clause. It says that says in a divorce situation where one person pays maintenance to the other, the other can ask for a lump sum of money and a clean break rather than taking ongoing payments. It is suspected that if the case went to court, Mr. Page would have been required to pay much less than £2m, but it seems he settled for the number to avoid the hassle of a legal battle.

Meanwhile, Nigel Page has re-married, moved into a £4million house with a private cinema and an indoor swimming pool, and is known to give regularly to local charities.
