Hell has no fury...

Indeed – especially when the source of her ire is a sex tape showing her fella in the act with another woman. After the video of Tamara's boyfriend, Omar Khyami, was leaked last week, the billionaire heiress and daughter of F1 impresario Bernie reportedly decided to ditch him once and for all.

Claims of infidelity and heartache all round – that's nothing new.

No, but this is no ordinary break-up. The couple have been together for two and a half years and Tamara's father is worth an estimated £2.7bn. In such gilded circles, separation arrangements are not as simple as a tug-of-war over the toaster.

So what's up for grabs then?

Where to start? The tabloids have been salivating over an eye-watering list that includes gold bracelets and diamond-encrusted watches. Word has it that Tamara has locked up their collection of prized luxury cars, including Lamborghinis, Bentleys and Range Rovers.

So will your man get a generous slice of the pie?

Possibly. The couple were due to move into a 55-room, £45m home in Kensington, west London, later this year and had they married it is likely they would have opened a joint account. The timing of the break-up may allow Tamara to keep hold of her personal fortune.
