World's Most Expensive Divorce!!

TRACEY HEJAILAN-AMON, the socialite who alledgedly took a blowtorch to her husband Maurice Alain Amon's safe, ruining his priceless art collection, has been awarded $122,858 a month in spousal support in their divorce, plus a lump-sum payment of $1,262,121-- but she still insists that isn't enough to support her lifestyle.
A Monaco court awarded Tracey 100,000 euros in monthly interim support, plus a back payment of 1,027,301 euros, as she continues to battle with her estranged husband, the 64-year old heir to a Swiss currency printing fortune. His family supplies the link for bank notes for many countries, including the U.S. Yes, they literally print money!
Things got off to a fiery start last year when Tracey lost the key to their safe in Paris and went at it with a blowtorch, allegedly leaving art worth $25 million coated in toxic dust.
The support payment was based on Tracey's lifestyle as his wife, which included year-round private plane and yacht travel, homes in Switzerland, London, Paris, Hong Kong and a $22million Fifth Avenue penthouse apartment.
But Tracey, 47, claims that isn't enough and she actually spends 400,000 euros a month...nearly $500,000!
Maurice-- said to be worth $1.4billion, says the payments are too large and gripes that he gave his socialite wife $50million in gifts over their 8-year marriage including two London properties, a Swiss chalet, a boat, a Ferrari and $10million in jewelry.
They are also fighting over jurisdiction-- he wants the divorce heard in the Monaco courts, often favorable to the wealthier spouse, while she wants the case in New York, where she'd get a larger settlement. And now her designer shoe collection has become the key focus in the fracas.
Tracey's attorney says his client was never a full-time resident domiciled in Monaco, yet Maurice contends that Tracey's enormous she collection was in the Monaco home and this constitutes proof that she was a resident of Monaco.
This case is considered the "War of the Louboutins!"
