KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 4 — Tycoon Tan Sri Khoo Kay Peng told the High Court here today that his estranged wife Pauline Chai was a very difficult and bad-tempered woman who would yell at “every small thing”.
He added that when he and Chai, who is from Ipoh, married in 1970, she had arrived at his house in Kuala Lumpur with just two bags of “old clothes” and “nothing else”.
Khoo, however, is applying to have the case heard in Malaysia, arguing that they were married in Malaysia where he also maintains his official residence. Khoo would risk losing less of his wealth if the trial is held here.
Chai argues that UK is her permanent residence and had cited as proof the collection of 1,000 pairs of shoes she kept at their £30 million (RM158 million) Rossway home in Hertfordshire, England, according to British media reports.- See more at: http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/tycoon-khoo-former-beauty-queen-wife-very-difficult-bad-tempered#sthash.zl1sCHpn.dpuf
