Britain’s Biggest Divorce Ever? Man Might Pay Wife £350m

The best friend of shamed BHS boss ‘Sir Shifty’ (together inset) is allegedly facing Britain’s largest ever divorce payout after reportedly leaving his wife for a Brazilian lover half his age. Multi-millionaire Richard Caring, 68, could be forced to pay out up to £350million to his wife Jacqui, 67 (pictured together right with Bill Clinton at a 2005 charity dinner), after apparently dumping her for his 35-year-old lover.

The businessman, who owns a string of exclusive London eateries including The Ivy and Le Caprice, is said to have moved out of the North London home – dubbed ‘The Versailles of Hampstead’ – he
shared with his wife of 45 years.
It is alleged he has moved straight in with his lover, Patricia Mondinni (pictured together left), with whom he has a young son. They are said to be living in a £32million ten-bedroom gated mansion in St John’s Wood, north west London.
