Celebrity chef's wife faces divorce courts alone

The estranged wife of celebrity chef Marco Pierre White will face the divorce courts next week alone.

Mati White told the Times that she could no longer afford the hefty solicitor's bills, which have already amounted to £750,000.

Ms White plans to ask for half of the value of the couple's marital home, which was valued at £2.2 million, as well as maintenance from the chef to support their three children.

She told the newspaper: "I am in an absolutely impossible situation. I am in rented accommodation, I don't own anything, and I can't afford lawyers.

"I can't do a Heather Mills because I am not clever enough. I shall just have to stand there and say: I want something that is fair."

People who are filing for divorce could learn from Ms White's experiences, as she has been accused of intercepting her husband's personal papers.

Information cannot be obtained through interception or force.

Marco Pierre White is famed for having given his three Michelin stars back to the French company.
