Roman Abramovich & # 39; coat hangers from £ 8m by ex-wife Irina about £ 33m St Tropez villa & # 39;

The ex-wife of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has misled him & # 39; from £ 8m during the purchase of a villa in St Tropez, claim legal documents.
Irina, 50, is the second wife of Abramovich and the couple divorced in 2007.
Rex Features Abramovich and Irina were divorced in 2007. She is involved in a legal battle with former assistant Elarem Hoffman, 55, who accuses her of using a series of offshore companies to avoid paying British taxes on her private jet.
Documents filed with the High Court say that Irina has arranged for fake documents to be sent to Abramovich's lawyers, overestimating the property they have purchased in the context of their divorce.
It is claimed that she stated that the property on the French Riviera was worth about £ 33 million, which meant that he had to pay £ 8 million over the whole lot.
The Times reports that she has pocketed the difference.
Empires It is claimed that Irina overloaded the Chelsea owner for the villa purchased as part of the settlement. Nice picture & # 39; s – Getty The couple were married in 16 years. Irina denies the accusations and is against Hoffman for wrong management of her finances.
The London-based former flight attendant Aeroflot married Abramovich in 1991 and together they have five children – who spend a lot of time with their father.
During their marriage, he switched from a powerful but withdrawn figure in the Russian Soviet roller coaster business and political world to a concept in the West as owner of the London football club.
Irina received a settlement of around £ 155 million in 2007, together with an agreement that Abramovich would cover the expenses of their five children.
