In his statement, Temur claimed, “The inappropriateness of your relationship with him (Mr. Isle) worried me even as a teenager.

“I found it difficult to concentrate in school because I was concerned that my school friend's brother, my friend, would become my 'new father'.

“I knew I would be humiliated and laughed at if it was publicly known. I was ashamed and afraid to speak to someone about it at school. & # 39;

Temur painted a vivid picture of his mother's affair with Mr. Isle, claiming that he visited the family home regularly when his father was away and that they "hugged and even in front of him on the day his grandmother died." kissed ".

Temur also alleged that when the affair with Mr. Isle came to an end, he found that his mother was also having an argument with the art dealer Alexander Heller, "in full public knowledge".

News of the affair came after the family went on vacation to Mustique, where his father rented a £ 500,000 villa formerly owned by David Bowie.

He claims that his younger brother Edgar later found a Mr. Heller sock with his name tag in the laundry of the £ 20 million family home in Surrey.

He says, "At that point, however, I was so upset and embarrassed about what was happening that I couldn't even bring myself to confront my mother about it."

Temur claims that the ramifications of the affairs had a profound impact on his ability to trust anyone.

He says: “I have also had serious trust problems since I was a child. I find it difficult to build trusting relationships with women or men as partners or friends. & # 39;

Temur gave evidence in the high court, claiming that the affair and how he felt about it could explain his actions and feelings towards his mother.

But the Honorable Justice Knowles said to him, “This is irrelevant. You know it is. I won't hear your evidence on this. & # 39;

In a powerful statement, Temur explains that he drank heavily after leaving school in order to "block out my feelings of shame and inadequacy and my anger towards my mother for the way she treated me."

His mother, Tatiana Akhmedova, had said to him in words: "Everything will be fine, don't worry."

He said his father, businessman Farkhad Akhmedov, "tried to be kind" but was "very angry".

In his statement, he also described the loss of £ 35 million of his father's money on the stock market in two months as "just bad luck".

Temur lost the staggering amount at 21 in 2015 after setting up as an independent trader with the help of his father. Despite the enormous loss, he was convinced that if he invested more, "great triumphs in the market would follow".

Temur claimed that he lost a total of £ 48million from late 2105 through the end of the tax year to 2016, followed by another loss of £ 8million in the 2016 to 2017 tax year, a combined loss of £ 56million over a period of 18 months.

Regarding the £ 35 million lump sum, most of which he lost in October and November 2015, Temur explains, “After my initial shock about the investment failure, I have recovered.

"I was determined to prove myself to my father as an investor and after this overwhelming loss tried to reassure myself that it was just an early failure which would be followed by a great triumph in the markets."

His mother had said appropriate words to him: "Everything will be fine, don't worry."

The statement also alleged that his huge losses in 2015 were caused by taking "heavily indebted positions" in European stocks.

He added, "The market was doing badly at the time and this was not a fruitful strategy."

Temur admits in his testimony that I couldn't really concentrate on anything after graduating from school.

In his early twenties he was interested in the trade and asked his father for the money because he wanted to prove to him that he too could be a success and "impress" him.

Temur claims that Ms. Akhmedova, despite threatening his father's divorce since 1999, did not respond until he sold Northgas, his oil and gas company, for over £ 1 billion in 2012.
