Woman demands share of ex-husbands earnings on top of £10m payout

A woman is demanding a share of her ex-husbands earnings on top of a £10m divorce payout, the court of appeal has heard.

The marriage of Kim Waggott, 49, with William Waggott, 54, ended after his ‘multiple affairs.’

The couple married in 2000 and have a teenage daughter.

Ms Waggott is arguing that she is entitled to a share of the “post-separation” finances.

Mr Waggott, however, says his former wife’s claim should be rejected.

Ms Waggott is challenging a decision made by Recorder Andrew Tidbury in the Family Court last year.

Mr Waggott argues that the judge was right “in law and overall fairness”  to reject Mrs Waggott’s claim to a share in “future bonuses” he earns “long after separation.”

Judges heard that Ms Waggott and their daughter live in Great Missenden, whilst Mr Waggott now lives at Markyate, Hertfordshire, with “another lady.”

Judges heard that Mr Waggott was having an affair with a work colleague in early 2011.

Appeal judges Sir James Munby, Lord Justice Moylan and Mr Justice MacDonald are analysing the dispute at a Court of Appeal hearing in London.
