Ex-calendar girl Christina Estrada awarded £53m in divorce battle

By John Aston

A former model declared "we have made history today" after winning £53m following a bitter High Court divorce cash battle with her Saudi billionaire former husband.

Christina Estrada (54) was fighting for £196m from international businessman Sheikh Walid Juffali (61) to meet her "reasonable needs".

Family judge Mrs Justice Roberts, sitting in London, ruled that, even though some of the former Pirelli calendar girl's claims were inflated and needed pruning, she was nevertheless entitled to a lump sum of £53,330,000 to meet her future needs "as she moves into an independent life outside her marriage".
