A MAN who won a massive lottery win was was forced to give a £2 million share to his ex-wife who dumped him 10 years ago.
Divorced Nigel Page, who won £56 million ($89 million) was sued by Wendy, 43, for £8 million after his EuroMillions jackpot this year, even though she left him for another man in 2000, The Sun reported.
Mr Page - who remarried after his win last February - is believed to be the first lottery-winning husband in the UK to be successfully sued for a slice of their winnings.
Friends told how despite being left heartbroken when his wife walked out, taking their then-three-year-old daughter Ella, he generously offered her £1million after his lottery numbers came up.
A friend said: "Nigel feels very hurt. The last seven months have been horrendous for him. Up to this point everyone got on pretty well. But what Wendy has done has ruined everything."
The £2 million lump sum she agreed to accept is entirely hers to spend as she wishes - after a bid by Nigel to pay it into a trust for Ella was vetoed.
His ex-wife is also believed to have obtained a huge increase in maintenance payments for their daughter - up from £150 a month to £2,000.
She is said to have rushed to consult lawyers after discovering he planned to give other relatives money.
Mr Page is thought to have agreed to the settlement rather than face the prospect of a larger payout to his ex-wife if the case had gone to court.Experts said it was likely the couple failed to include a legally-binding clean break arrangement at the time of their divorce.
The out-of-court settlement is understood to include a gagging order - preventing either party from talking about it.
He refused to comment on his payout and his ex, who is employed by St. James' Place Wealth Management, also remained silent.
Asked about the settlement she said: "I'm not interested, thank you."
A$$holes like this b*tch shouldn't be able to hound someone for the rest of their life to continually milk out anything they can from them when they haven't been a part of their lives for so long.
She sounds like she royally screwed this guy over once, took off to skank up another guy, took their kid and now acts as if she's still entitled to any successes this guy has in his life...... 10 years after they divorced.
Plus the fact the divorce seems to have been done over her taking off with another guy, imo, he should have had custody of the child, she should have owed HIM money for breaking their marriage contract and she should have no grounds to seek anything from him other then a fart in the face.
Crap like this pisses me off to no end....... undeserving, self-entitled, self-righteous, selfish, greedy assclowns that seem to get their way at the expense of others.
Sure, he won like £56 million and she only got £2 million of it, thus a small penny in comparison to what he still has, but it's the damn principle of the whole thing.... she didn't deserve 1/2 a shilling....... and the fact that the £2 million doesn't even have to go to their child, but it's just hers to blow as she sees fit is disgusting beyond belief.
