News just in the diva office from South Africa is former Manchester United & Bafana Bafana soccer star Quinton Fortune and his wife Kim is looking to settle their differences out of court.

The couple have been married for six years, Mrs Fortune filed for divorce in the Cape High Court and also lodged an application for maintenance of R50 000 a month, pending the outcome of the divorce. Mrs Fortune also wants R75 000 towards her legal costs, a car worth close to R500 000 and furniture worth R550 000.

The case was postponed until next month to give the couple time to try and negotiate a settlement, Mrs Fortune instituted divorce proceedings after claiming her husband had been having extra-marital affairs, and she is also claiming a share of the joint estate.

It’s reported that Mrs Fortune has not worked for the duration of their marriage, the couple were married in January 2002 and do not have any children. If the couple do not reach an agreement it is said that Fortune will file his opposing papers by then end of the month.

It seems that Mrs Fortune has been very specific about the car she wants a “sprint blue” Audi S3 automatic because she is in “urgent” need of transport and currently uses her father’s car, she has also asked for the car to be fitted with all the extras that she was previously used to.

Mrs Fortune would also like R550 000 to furnish her R3,5 million city apartment as she said she has no furniture or curtains. Included on her application is a list of her monthly expenses, totaling R110 150, and Mrs Fortune says it is “far less” than the expenses they incurred as a couple.

She said her husband was living an extravagant lifestyle in Cheshire, and that he owned an Audi Q7, Audi A8 and 2004 DTS Cadillac.
