An unfaithful woman who has won a £ 90m divorce agreement is now battling her ex-lover in court for over £ 20m.

Mandy Gray and Hamish Hurley traveled the world during an intense six-year relationship.

But the couple is now in the war for company shares, an Italian villa and four super sports cars that were acquired during their time together.

Miss Gray, 50, says she is the sole owner of the property

Ms. Gray, 50, says she is the sole owner of the assets, which include other properties around the world, but Mr. Hurley, 46, insists that they are "shared property".

The High Court learned this week that the “a few million” worth of vehicles include a £ 1 million Ferrari and a Pagani.

Ms. Gray, 50, says she is the sole owner of the assets, which include other properties around the world, but Mr. Hurley, 46, insists that they are "shared property".

On Thursday, Jonathan Cohen QC, one of several lawyers to represent Miss Gray, said that his client had financed the purchase of the assets alone and that she never intended to "give" it to Mr. Hurley.

In court records, he claimed that Mr. Hurley had spent £ 7 million from Miss Gray's money on a failed internet marketing business, adding, "In Miss Gray's case, she was no longer Hurley's vehicle for his enrichment and he was the archetypal gold miner par excellence. & # 39;

The QC accused Mr. Hurley of planning to use his lover as a means to get his "wish list" for assets and said he had already bought a Ferrari 458 Speciale and a Pagani Huayra Coupe before the couple's relationship began intended.

Miss Gray was previously married to American finance colleague Randy Work. When the couple, who had two children, separated in 2013, they had accumulated a fortune of £ 180m during their 18-year marriage.

Miss Gray has now "redesigned the whole relationship," he said, misrepresenting Mr. Hurley as "manipulative and controlling."

At a High Court hearing in 2015, the marriage failed after Miss Gray started an affair with her personal physiotherapist.

52-year-old Mr. Work was instructed to pay his estranged wife half of her assets after learning how she had given up her career to move to Tokyo with him before later becoming a "housewife" in the UK.

Mr. Work appealed the decision, but in 2017 the Court of Appeals dismissed his claim that he was a financial “genius” who deserved a larger share of the marriage.

This week's High Court hearing was informed that Miss Gray and Mr. Hurley "lived an international lifestyle" after meeting at an exclusive members' private health club in Chelsea, where he was a nutritionist and physiotherapist.

But Mr. Hurley is said to have subjected Miss Gray to emotional and physical abuse throughout her relationship – a claim he vehemently denies.

& # 39; Because of his domineering behavior and intent, a number of very valuable assets, all bought with horror money – because he had none – are currently fully or partially registered in Hurley's name or held by companies he controls. said Mr. Cohen.

He said that even before their romance ended this year, Mr. Hurley had "made lists of prestige assets that he wanted to receive but could never afford for his own salary."

But Hurley's QC, James Bailey, said his client had an "intense, intimate, loving, consensual, and collaborative" relationship with Miss Gray, and the couple shared 40,000 social media messages he cited as evidence during his time together of their previous commitment.

Miss Gray has now "redesigned the whole relationship," he said, misrepresenting Mr. Hurley as "manipulative and controlling."

Mr. Hurley had returned home to New Zealand to live with his parents after Miss Gray had ended their relationship, he said.

But during their time together, they bought real estate around the world, with Miss Gray "providing the means for living together – building for her future."

Mr. Bailey added: "Now she has changed her mind about Hamish, she wants everything back."

The hearing should examine whether the dispute should be handled by New Zealand or English courts and whether Miss Gray should be given freeze orders to protect certain assets.

Mr. Bailey told judge Brian Rawlings that although Miss Gray's allegations could put his clients in a bad light, "you haven't heard the other side of the story, which is remarkable."

Mr. Hurley's QC said he was fighting his case "in the smallest of spaces" and needed time to raise more money.

He was completely "disappointed" by Miss Gray, Mr. Bailey said, and said, "To begin with, it should be noted that Mandy's litigation approach is to use brute force to try to harass her path to the desired result."

The case was adjourned to give Mr. Hurley more time to prepare his case.
