(BEIRUT, LEBANON) — Lebanese supermodel Loujain Adada sparked the start of an expensive divorce battle between one of the world’s richest men, and his former wife, supermodel Christina Estrada.

The Daily Mail reports that Estrada is divorcing her husband, Saudi billionaire Walid Juffali, after he married a second wife — his third in total — Adada.

But things get more complicated.

Estrada, 52, is seeking a “significant slice” of Juffali’s wealth, including some of his multi-million dollar estates around the world.

With an estimated family fortune of $6.2 billion, Estrada is reportedly seeking three of the couple’s properties in the UK, worth an estimated $90 million.

Juffali divorced his first wife Basma Al Sulaiman in 2000 after 24 years of marriage, paying her $62 million.

Juffali, 60, and Adada, 25, tied the knot in 2012 during a large lavish wedding held in Venice, Italy.

Juffali’s family owns one of Saudi Arabia’s largest conglomerates, EA Juffali & Brothers, which has a long list of multinational corporations as partners, including IBM, Siemens, Ericsson, Mercedes-Benz, Michelin, Massey-Ferguson, Electrolux, Kelvinator, Carrier, Dow Chemicals and DuPont.
