The Saga Continues...

The Scot/Michelle Young divorce case continues to entertain. The Sunday Times tells us today that Michelle has handed over 'secret files' on Scot's dealings with the 'super-rich' to HM Revenue & Customs. The paper speculates that this may give some of Scot's friends 'the jitters', but Scot assures us once more that he has nothing to hide.

The files apparently contain details of Scot's property dealings (which were the subject of a Daily Mail article last week) and also references to various investments including possibly funding Manolete, a film about a Spanish bullfighter. According to Wikipedia, the film was originally due for release in 2007, but wasn't actually released until March this year, after facing "several production delays and a spiralling budget". Doesn't sound like that good an investment to me...

Scot was of course recently made bankrupt by HM Revenue & Customs and has apparently failed to make any of the maintenance payments that he was ordered to pay last year, with the result that Michelle is struggling to pay her legal costs. However, the Sunday Times tells us that she is looking for “an angel investor” to help fund her case, and her solicitor points out that the taxman can do much of her work for her anyway, as he has “a bottomless pit in terms of resources” to find out what had happened to Scot’s assets. So, we're all going to foot the bill...

It looks like this one is going to run and run. Stay tuned for the next exciting instalment...
