Fifth divorce most expensive for Lord

The fifth wife of Lord Northampton is to receive a £17million divorce settlement, after their 20-year marriage ended in separation.

The Lord's marriage to Lady Pamela Northampton was his longest, but came to an end after her affair with a multi-millionaire came to light. The divorce hearing of the couple was scheduled to begin this month, but the divorce solicitors for both parties were able to stand down when they reached an agreement that will see Lady Northampton receive property, assets and cash that will total approximately £17million. Lord Northampton has an estimated fortune of £120million. The agreement reached includes confidentiality clauses that prohibits either of them speaking out about their marriage.
