Socialite Jamie Chua settles divorce suit with Indonesian tycoon

Jamie Chua and Nurdian Cuaca agreed to an amicable settlement. The couple had been married for more than 15 years and have two children.

The couple filed for divorce in February 2010 over ‘unreasonable behaviour’.

The high profile divorce suit between socialite Jamie Chua, 36, and Indonesian tycoon Nurdian Cuaca was settled Tuesday.

The couple came to a settlement under confidential terms following a freeze on her estranged husband’s assets estimated at $93 million was lifted by the High Court before Justice Tay Yong Kwang.

The socialite was seeking $450,000 a month in maintenance from Cuaca based on the previous standard of living with her husband.

According to the Straits Times, Cuaca is known to spend around $303,000 a month for more than 27 months. He also has cash in the bank and trading share accounts, together worth some $15.4 million.

Cuaca‘s other assets include two houses in Sentosa Cove and in Hong Kong worth $14.6 million, $79.2 million in shares in a private company, his wine collection and his three cars – a Lamborghini, a Porsche and a Ferrari.

The deal marks the end of a high-profile divorce suit that threatened to expose the couple’s personal lifestyles to the public glare.

She is also frequently spotted at high society events in Singapore.

Why does Jamie require such a high maintenance allowance, you ask?
Perhaps it’s to fund her love for fashion? The former flight stewardess, opened the first Manolo Blahnik boutique in South-east Asia, Jamie‘s been dubbed as the woman who owns “the most number of Hermes Birkin bags in the world.”
