Billionaire hedge fund manager's divorce latest

Bugsy Malone Food Fight

When the billionaire hedge fund manager Kenneth Griffin moved to divorce his wife of 11 years this summer, his action took many by surprise.

The New York Times reports that now his wife, Anne Dias Griffin, is having her say.

In documents filed in Cook County, Ill., on Tuesday, Ms. Griffin responded to her husband’s divorce petition with a formal request for sole custody of their three children and for permission to move them to New York.

Perhaps more surprisingly, she also argued that a prenuptial agreement that the two signed in 2003 was actually done under duress and should be voided.

The two filings suggest that the breakup of the Griffins, one of Chicago’s richest and most prominent power couples, will move from domestic dispute into public brawl. Hints of an acrimonious fight emerged soon after Mr. Griffin filed for divorce in late July, with Ms. Griffin contending that she had been blindsided by the move.

On one side of the fight is Mr. Griffin, the founder of the hedge fund Citadel, whose net worth is an estimated $5.5 billion, according to Forbes. On the other is Ms. Griffin, a Harvard Business School graduate who had run her own investment firm but now largely focuses on raising the couple’s children.
