Divorce of Malaysian owners of Laura Ashley stake to be heard in Britain
Pauline Chai and Khoo Kay Peng’s £400m dispute likely to be settled in London where wives can expect higher awards
A £400 million pound divorce battle between a Malaysian former beauty queen and her husband, who own much of the Laura Ashley fashion business, is set to be heard in Britain following a ruling by the Asian country’s highest court.
The dispute between Pauline Chai, 67, and her estranged partner Khoo Kay Peng, 74, is now more likely to be settled in London where wives can expect far higher awards and a more equal division of family assets.
