Multi-millionairess’s estranged husband could be jailed after judge rules he breached orders in bitter divorce fight over her hundreds of millions

A wealthy multi-millionairess’s estranged husband could be jailed after a judge ruled he breached orders in a divorce fight over her hundreds of millions.
Louise Backstrom, 33, who is Swedish but lives in London, said Martin Wennberg, 39, was in contempt and asked Mr Justice Peel to impose a jail sentence.
The judge heard that Ms Backstrom and Mr Wennberg had married in 2015 and separated in 2021.
Since then, a bitter fight erupted over how much each should walk away with following the breakdown of the marriage.
Mr Justice Peel ruled in her favour on Thursday after considering evidence at a public hearing in the Family Division of the High Court in London.

The judge, who heard that Ms Backstrom was worth hundreds of millions of pounds, concluded that Mr Wennberg had breached court orders relating to the disclosure of information which had been made during divorce litigation.
While they were together, the couple were often seen at charity events and were good friends with the Queen Consort – then the Duchess of Cornwall, according to dnevnik.hr.
They owned a portfolio of properties with an estimated combined value of £115million, including a penthouse in Hyde Park.
However the marriage idyll came to an end when Ms Backstrom left her husband of six years for his friend Alexa Hemsley, a rugby player who has also worked as a topless waiter.
The judge adjourned sentencing until later in the year.
Ms Backstrom was in court – Mr Wennberg, who is also Swedish, was not at the hearing.
Mr Justice Peel refused to adjourn the hearing because Mr Wennberg, who was represented by a lawyer, was not in court.
