How to spend $53,000 a week

December 22, 2008

Marie Douglas-David, the estranged wife of UTC’s George David, filed a document with the divorce court showing that she requires $53,000 a week to support her lifestyle.

Real estate accounts for a lot of it, including mortgage, maintenance fees, rent or other costs for a Park Avenue apartment, a Hamptons residence and several properties in Sweden.

But travel ($8,000), clothing ($4,500), hair and skin care ($1,000), dry cleaning ($650) and flowers ($600), among many other items, contribute to the total.

Dry cleaning does not include fur storage and cleaning ($45).

And that’s when Douglas-David is cutting back.
