More recently, the ex-husband of the founder of the Jimmy Choo brand, TamarMellon, was accused of spying on his own wife during the divorce proceedings, but now these charges have been dropped. After five days of discussion, the jury delivered an acquittal. The billionaire heir to the oil empire, Matthew Mellon, said after the trial ended only: "I feel immensely relieved that this is finally over."
During the trial, TamarMellon provided evidence that her ex-husband had hired private detectives to scan her email in order to gain access to information about the company's financial details. While characterizing her ex-husband, the business lady described him as a sweet but inept idiot, so forgetful that she worries about leaving her daughter alone with him. Arriving at the court in clothes from the most expensive designers, she stated that Matthew Mellon "is late for the planes like other people are late for the bus", behaves "like a child" and cannot even read comics, let alone organize a serious adventure. However, despite such negative characteristics, Tamar claims that the former spouses remain friends.
