David Walliams and Lara Stone fighting over assets

David Walliams and Lara Stone fighting over assets

David Walliams and his ex-wife Lara Stone are still locked in a bitter legal battle over their assets - a year after their divorce.

The 'Britain's Got Talent' judge and the 32-year-old model saw their five-year marriage officially dissolve under the eyes of the law 14 months ago and, although they've both moved on with new people, they're still embroiled in a fight over their money.

High Court judge Mr Justice MacDonald began analysing the arguments and evidence on the division of assets at a private hearing in the family division of the court on Monday (07.11.16).

He said the media could name the former couple - who were both in court at the time - and report that a trial was taking place, but no details aired in the hearing could be published.

The 45-year-old comedian requested to end their marriage in September 2015, citing Lara's "unreasonable behaviour."

He was granted a decree nisi the next day, making the marriage null and void six weeks after the date of the initial filing.

The pair - who have an estimated combined wealth of almost £19 million - split six months prior to David filing for divorce.

Around the time their marriage began to break down, Lara - who married David in 2010 at Claridge's hotel in London - appeared half-naked in a risqué photo shoot alongside Justin Bieber, 22.

Following their divorce, Lara - who has three-year-old son Alfred with David - was rumoured to be dating Jordan Barrett, 19, after they were spotted canoodling in Cannes earlier this year.

A source said at the time: "The pair of them couldn't seem to stop laughing as they left, and at the last minute Jordan grabbed Lara's hand and led her away.

"They seemed very comfortable in each other's company."

But Lara isn't the only one to move on from, as David is now thought to be romancing Playboy model Emily Agnes.
