The demands of a Swedish countess looking for a $100 million divorce settlement from her CEO husband are making headlines, ABC reports. Marie Douglas-David’s pursuit of $53,000 in weekly expenses stands out during a time when many are downplaying lavish spending. “She threatened him with a mud fight if he did not give her everything she ever asked for,” said George David’s attorney.
Douglas-David, who married the United Technologies chief in 2002, notes in her filing that her weekly expenses “may seem high”—for perspective, her $4,500 in clothing and $8,000 in travel per week is the equivalent of flying from New York to Sweden and buying 13 pairs of Gap jeans every day. Adding spice: Each side claims cheating, sex scandals, and multiple divorce filings during their roller-coaster relationship.
