Man Divorces Britain's Wealthiest Woman
Wed 12-03-2014

A math teacher just divorced Britain's wealthiest female entrepreneur!

Former maths teacher Tony Hawken, 57, is splitting from Xiu Li, 51, because he says he is fed up with being wealthy.

The couple were catapulted into the world of the super-rich after Li's idea of building shopping centers in disused Chinese air-raid shelters.

But Tony is divorcing his rich wife because he says he doesn't like being rich and is 'not in the habit' of spending lots of money.

In an interview with The Times, he said: 'I think it made me uncomfortable because I'm not in the habit, I don't like spending lots of money, I've been brought up that way."

"Until recently I was never a wealthy person. I've been moderately comfortable because I have been careful with my money."

Li owns 22 shopping centers and is president of football team Guizhou Renhe, who are third in the Chinese Super League.
