Bernie Ecclestone's wife granted divorce
Wednesday 11 March 2009
Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone and his wife have divorced after nearly 25 years of marriage.
Slavica Ecclestone, 50, was granted the split by a London court today on grounds of her 78-year-old husband's "unreasonable behavior."
The couple were married in July 1985 and have two daughters.
In court documents, Slavica Ecclestone said her husband's behavior "has caused me stress and anxiety."
The judge ruled that Ecclestone had "behaved in such a way that the petitioner cannot reasonably be expected to live with the respondent" and the marriage had "broken down irretrievably."
Ecclestone heads Formula One Management, the sport's commercial rights holder.
