A Briton who won a reported $1 billion in one of the biggest divorce settlements in history has filed for bankruptcy in the US.
Patricia Kluge, a 62-year-old socialite, winemaker and one-time adult film actress, has debts of about £30 million despite selling her 300-acre estate in Virginia.
A £10 million sale of paintings, Roman statues, Qing dynasty antiques and a George III crystal chandelier also failed to keep her afloat.
Asked last night where her money had gone, Miss Kluge would only say: “That’s a very long story”.
“It’s not the moment to talk about ‘what ifs’,” she told The Daily Telegraph, “or what we coulda, shoulda, woulda. It needn’t have come to this, but we’re focused on the future.” Born to an English father and half-Scottish mother in Baghdad, Miss Kluge married Russell Gay, a 1960s soft porn baron, and appeared in his magazine Knave as a model and columnist.
She also appeared in the film ‘Nine Acres of Nakedness’. They separated and in 1982, she wed John Kluge, a 66-year-old television mogul worth $6 billion.
She became a fixture on Manhattan’s social circuit and a £1 million party was thrown at the Waldorf Astoria for her 40th birthday. Guests included Frank Sinatra.
When the couple divorced in 1990, Miss Kluge won an estimated $1 billion comprising cash, their mansion Albemarle House, and its grounds in Charlottesville, Virginia.
She later married Bill Moses, a lawyer, and founded a 775-acre vineyard, which supplied the White House. It ran into difficulties despite a personal investment of £27 million.
It was sold to Donald Trump, a friend, for £3.7 million this year. The couple will now manage it for him. Their mansion, once listed for £62 million, was sold for £9.3 million.
They now live in a more modest house nearby. “It’s not so small, but it’s much smaller than Albemarle,” said Miss Kluge. “We’re very happy”.
