From what l read about this relationship - the ex-wife - although divorced from the chap for many years, she did raise their child on her own - with no support from the father. As he has made a fortune in later life - l still think she is within her rights to make a claim against him for a portion of his wealth - albeit it seems to be peanuts compared to what he is worth. They lived like ‘new age’ travellers when they first met.
Yes, l think women should be empowered by this. And he should be made to take responsibility for his offspring.
Same as men - yes some are strong and some are weak. How awful if we were all the same.
We certainly do not get treated equally to men - especially in the workplace.
When you say he is a successful business man - yes he is - he was in the right place at the right time. He saw at music festivals how much litter was left behind. And soon made his fortune by getting a team together to clear it up. [l would like to know where he dumped the rubbish!] And his empire grew from there.
He bought a derelict farmhouse and land - which he made into a ‘castle’ without planning permission. So as the planners could not see what he had built - he then built a giant straw stack around it. So from any side it looked just like giant bales of straw.
l expect many of you remember seeing it on one of the tele series. He is a bit of a ‘maverick’ - and you do have to admire his cheek. He is not shy about showing the world his wealth - so l can understand why the ex and their son thought - ‘why can we not have some of that’.
lf the boot was on the other foot - and he had to bring up his son by himself whilst the wife made a fortune - what’s the betting he would have done the same. Although, l expect he would not have needed to as his ex-wife would have had the decency to help him out.
