One of the financial world’s nastiest divorces just became a bit more toxic.
Looking to fight back against the financial demands of estranged wife Anne Dias Griffin, hedge fund billionaireKen Griffin has filed in court an itemized list of what she claims are $1 million in monthly expenses.
• $160,000 for vacation accommodations
• $6,800 for groceries
• $7,200 for dining
• $2,000 for stationery
• $60,000 for office space and professional staff
• $300,000 for a private jet
Dias Griffin, having already failed in her attempt to get a court to order payment on these expenses as part of marital maintenance, now is making a plea for the payments as child support, Griffin claimed in the court filing.
In addition to making the potentially embarrassing monthly expenses public, Griffin told the court that his wife exaggerated her accomplishments while running her own hedge fund.
Dias Griffin, through a spokeswoman, said Griffin “continues to lie with impunity.”
“Who knows what the truth is?” asked James Feldman, a Chicago divorce lawyer not involved in the case.
