Mum raised on council estate made £300m but it destroyed her husband

LONDON, June 11: A millionairess raised on a council estate has told how her fairytale turned to dust when her husband cheated on her – then hid their £300million fortune.

Sarah Pursglove and her partner had unimaginable wealth – a £25million penthouse, a £22million yacht, a private jet, a property empire and a booming online business. But she says the money “absolutely ruined” her husband Robert Oesterlund, 44.

And after a two-year legal battle to get her share of their stash she has spoken about her extraordinary rollercoaster life that would fill the pages of a best-seller.

Sarah, 47, tells how romance and riches ended in deceit and divorce – and even near disaster involving a perilous escape from shark-infested waters.

Sarah said: “Robert betrayed me in every way you could possibly be betrayed – you just never expect a husband to do what he’s done.

Sarah grew up in a three-bed semi in North Wales while Robert was the shy son of Finnish Jehovah’s Witnesses. The pair met while she was working as a cruise ship photographer and fell madly in love.

They made a fortune with an online marketing venture, had two kids and life seemed perfect.

But heartbreak and humiliation lay ahead and the marriage ended after Sarah caught her husband and another woman kissing. He had been having a fling with an interior decorator.

Sarah filed for divorce only to discover he had hidden their millions in off-shore trusts. It took nearly two years before a court ordered accountants to release thousands of papers documenting their fortune.

After a lengthy legal battle Sarah finally got her hands on a multi-million pound payout.

But speaking from her £4million waterfront mansion in Florida, she said: “I would have been happy living with him in a small apartment, as long as we were together with our girls. This has ruined everything.”
