(Newser) – A prominent wildlife charity called Save China's Tigers did more than try to save tigers—it provided an endless source of cash for the founders' opulent lifestyle, according to allegations in a nasty divorce case. Li Quan says soon-to-be-ex Stuart Bray, a former Deutsche Bank executive, used deceptive accounting practices to divert assets to the couple, reports the Telegraph. "We were using the money to fund our personal things," she told the judge in London. But she swears she was unaware of any improprieties at the time because "I am not a financial person."

The couple is fighting over about $81 million in assets held by the charity they founded in 2000, reports Bloomberg. If you've heard of SCT, it might be because it's had spokespeople such as Jackie Chan. Bray denies his wife's accusations, though he hasn't presented his side in court yet. The judge says Li's testimony points to fraud "on a grand and big scale," though it's not clear whether any legal ramifications will follow.
