A New York lawyer contesting an alimony suit from his fifth wife in a London court was relieved yesterday to receive judgement that he could keep his Steinway baby grand.
Counsel for Richard Fields pleaded that his third wife had won his first Steinway in their divorce settlement, leaving him brokenhearted.
‘That wife took the piano from him. He had to relinquish the piano. He wanted such a piano. He went out and bought another such piano,’ said Stephen Trowell QC. The instrument is valued at $100,000.
Nobody mentioned the cat.
