Broiges of the week: Irina Abramovich v Roman Abramovich

November 13, 2008

The former wife of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has broken her silence about their failed marriage. Irina Abramovich, 41, told Russian OK! magazine that she hated being surrounded by bodyguards and lived in fear of their children being kidnapped. She said: "My life with Roman was not the fairytale that the papers reported... Each year it got harder for me." After their divorce last year, she was awarded £150m of Abramovich £10.8 billion fortune. Which is maybe why she hasn't dished more dirt.
