A millionaire is suing his poker playing former wife for her £640,000 (approx Rs 5.6 crore) designer shoe collection, claiming that she hid them from him in their divorce settlement.
The 42-year-old shoe-lover Beth Shak was stunned to discover that her former husband Daniel, 52, a wealthy hedge fund manager, is claiming 35 percent of her designer hoard. Her husband has claimed that Shak hid the financial value of her 1,200 pairs of shoes from him in their divorce settlement three years ago.

But Shak, who is now dating 36-year-old policeman Ben Cook, said that her ex-husband's decision to take her to court amounts to harassment.
The claim, could cost the mum of three about £225,000 (approx Rs 2 crore) in shoes, plus thousands more for her collection of designer handbags.
In the lawsuit, Daniel has claimed that his ex-wife managed to conceal her shoe collection from him in "a secret room" while they shared a £4.7-million apartment in New York.
He insisted that he only found out about it last year, two years after their 2009 split. "Dan trusted his wife and was not inspecting his home to try to find inventory or "secret rooms"," the legal papers claimed. But Shak said that her ex hubby knew about these rooms.
After their divorce, Shak has moved to a luxury home near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with her two children 17-year-old Lindy and 15-year-old Austin. Shak is rumoured to be a multi-millionaire following the end of her marriage.
