Billionaire’s son sentenced to jail for failing to pay £50,000 divorce money to model ex-wife



A billionaire's son has been sentenced to jail for failing to pay the first installment of his London-based ex-wife’s £5.8 million divorce settlement.



Preston Haskell IV, son of Preston Haskell III and heir to his vast American construction empire, has been embroiled in a five-year legal battle with Belarusian former model, Alesia Vladimirovna Haskell.


Preston Jr tried to fight a first court ruling that he could have paid his first instalment of £50,000 but did not do so. His appeal failure has landed him with a six-week jail sentence, meaning the 55-year-old would be taken to prison if he returns to England



Ms Haskell told a judge that her ex-husband’s failure to pay the money which was due by February 2020 had affected her finances up to the extent she faced losing her home in one of London’s most upmarket boroughs.
