The former British wife of a Russian billionaire, who was ordered to pay a 453 million pound divorce bill, has claimed the first sliver of the award after seizing and selling a helicopter, her advisers said on Thursday.
Oil and gas tycoon Farkhad Akhmedov was ordered to pay around 40 percent of his fortune to Tatiana Akhmedova by London’s High Court in 2016 in one of the largest divorce settlements in legal history.
The judge ordered Akhmedov to hand his former wife a modern art collection valued at over 90 million pounds, English property worth 2.5 million pounds, a 350,000 pound Aston Martin car and a 350 million pound lump sum.
