Hedge Fund Mnanager Drops $1m Shoe Collection Case Against Beth Shak
Hedge Fund hunk Daniel Shak, 53, filed a lawsuit against his former wife Beth Shak last month, demanding 35 per cent of her shoe collection.
He claimed she had kept the shoes hidden in a secret room in their Fifth Avenue apartment, meaning he was unaware of their value when he agreed to a $3.25 million (£2m) divorce settlement.
This week the case came to court, but after a morning of testimony, during which Beth Shak, 51, described her vast shoe collection as “a sickness”, Mr Shak told his lawyer to withdraw the case.
The judge agreed, telling Mr Shak: “Well, thanks very much for wasting everybody’s time.”
