Ex-wife wants former husband jailed over £2m divorce debt after he spent £80,000 on his latest wedding

A woman says she wants her ex-husband jailed after he spent more than £80,000 on his latest wedding even though he claimed he cannot afford to pay her.

Sarah Rogan said her ex-husband Grant Rogan should be committed to prison for breaching an agreement made following the breakdown of their 10-year marriage.

Ms Rogan has suggested that Mr Rogan is wilfully refusing to pay the money he owes which amounts to more than £2 million.

Mr Rogan, 63, claimed he cannot afford to pay his ex-wife, despite spending more than £80,000 on his latest wedding.

A judge analysed preliminary issues in the case at a hearing in the Family Division of the High Court in London.

Mr Justice Holman indicated that decisions would be made after a further hearing later in the year.

He said Mr Rogan had agreed to pay Ms Rogan, who was Mr Rogan’s second wife, £5 million in instalments four years ago.

Mr Rogan had also agreed to hand over £8,000 a month alimony pending the full payment of the £5 million.

Mr Justice Holman said, “On the face of it, it is very contumelious. To fail to pay wife number two but to go out and spend large amounts of money on wife number three. The clear inference is that the husband chose to prioritise making considerable expenditure on these two weddings rather than pay the maintenance.”
