David Walliams and Lara Stone split £19m fortune

David Walliams and Lara Stone have split their £19 million fortune.

The former couple have been locked in a bitter legal battle over money since their divorce was finalised 14 months ago, but they managed to reach an agreement at the High Court on Tuesday (08.11.16) - the second day of their trial - after just 30 minutes of private discussions.

Legal representatives for the pair told the judge Mr Justice MacDonald today that they'd reached a settlement, although the authoritative figure has banned the press from publishing the terms of the agreement.

However, he said the media could name the comedian and his ex-wife - who were both in court - and report that a trial was taking place.

The 45-year-old funny man 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, 31 - who has three-year-old son Alfred with David - was rumoured to be dating Jordan Barrett, 19, after they were spotted canoodling in Cannes, France, 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 their doomed marriage, as David is now thought to be romancing Playboy model Emily Agnes.
