The golfer and television commentator Colin Montgomerie is facing a £5 million divorce settlement payout after his wife accused him of cheating on her with a number of women during their eight-year marriage. Golf enthusiasts in the Greater Manchester area may remember that the sportsman was a Ryder Cup captain, but more recently he has been in the media after news that he started divorce proceedings against his second wife.
The 52-year-old golfer's previous marriage ended in 2004 after his first wife is thought to have demanded that he put their relationship before his career. He married his present wife in 2008 and until recently they lived in a house valued at £2.5 million in Perthshire. She has four children of her own from her first marriage and in 2003 received an inheritance of £20 million when her former husband passed away. She is now thought to be seeking the family home and £5 million as part of the divorce settlement.
