Daily Mail: Vladimir Slutsker loses £40m Boltons Home Battle

The ex-wife of a fabulously wealthy Russian politician has fought off his bid for a half share of their £40million London home

The ex-wife of a fabulously wealthy Russian politician has fought off his bid for a half share of their £40million London home.

Olga Slutsker, 47, started an empire of health clubs using her husband Vladimir’s money and ploughed the profits into the mansion in the capital’s second most expensive street.

But when the marriage hit the rocks, multi-millionaire Mr Slutsker, 56, declared that he was entitled to a 50 per cent share, and launched a legal battle to secure it.

Rather than being in either of their names the house, in The Boltons in South Kensington, was held through a trust on behalf of their children. Mr Slutsker argued that he had been ‘hoodwinked’ into this arrangement.
