Chris Hohn’s Wife Goes All Patty Cohen On Him

Like the former Mrs. SAC, Jamie Cooper-Hohn suspects that The Children’s Investment Fund founder, who once loved her enough to take her name and to give her a £2 billion charity to play with, is hiding £1.7 billion—or at least several hundred million—in the crevasses of his “modest life.”

Mrs Cooper-Hohn, 49, claims their joint assets were about £849million and her husband is worth at least a further £872million from personal assets in his hedge fund – The Children’s Investment Fund group of companies – making a combined wealth of £1.72billion.

But Sir Christopher, knighted last month in the Queen’s Birthday Honours, claims he is worth a mere £67million and that much of his wealth was built up after they separated….

The couple separated in December 2012 and divorced in April 2013 but the decree nisi has never been made absolute.

Yesterday the High Court heard that despite the tycoon’s incredible ability to make money on the financial markets the couple lived ‘modest lives’….

Whatever the outcome the divorce settlement is likely to be the biggest in UK history, beating the £220million paid in 2011 by the late Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky. The hearing continues.

    Dude, the sex had better have been 100 times better than the 200K euro or so you could have spent legally leasing a couple of hookers for per year.

    >It's all about the cost benefit analysis.

    Seriously, why bother getting married. So fucking stupid. You wind up hating the person. Don't even get me started on people who get married two, three or four times. Goddamn morons.

    Especially if you have money. Bang whoever you want, no hassles, keep all your money. no kids. its great

    These people are disgusting. I hope their airing their dirty laundry gets them into trouble with the HMRC and IRS. The treasury should start scanning those Swiss Swift Codes for their activity. Everything about their set up reeks tax evasion.

    1- Set up a "Charity Hedge Fund"
    2- Non-dom to avoid UK taxes
    3- No UK house– probably living in a company flat that is paid for by the company.Check if that's declared.
