French footballer Thierry Henry’s ex-wife Claire Merry is certainly making full use of the fact that nearly £8million are sitting in her bank account as the divorce settlement she got from the messy lawsuit. Claire was recently spotted shopping for lingerie at an upmarket store Agent Provocateur in London and leaving with a lot of bags.
The former model has already splashed a decent amount on getting a new pair of breasts which she showed off to the paparazzi while having a Spanish beach holiday last year.
Henry met her while filming for a Renault Clio advertisment in 2001. The two hit it off very quickly and then got married after two years. They shared a £6m mansion in Hamstead and also had a daughter named Tea.
Although, the wedding went sour and the Croydon-born beauty wanted a £10m divorce settlement keeping in mind the French player’s £130,000-a week earnings. She hired lawyer Fiona Shackleton of Prince Charles and Sir Paul McCartney fame and the settled for £8m.
“Neither her or Thierry wanted to go back to court as they are both now moving on with their lives. She is happy with the conclusion. She said it is close to the £10million she wanted,” the friend said.
