London, June 29 : "Bend It Like Beckham" star Parminder Nagra's divorce case has turned ugly over the couple's joint finances.
estranged husband James Stenson has filed a lawsuit claiming he
deserves a slice of the British actress' fortune after giving up his job
as a photographer to manage their lives when she was cast in the hit TV
medical drama "E.R." in 2004.
According to tmz.com, Stenson is
demanding at least $500,000 in damages and half of the three properties
they purchased before they wed in 2009.
He said they made a pact
to share their combined wealth during the six years they spent as "life
partners" before formally tying the knot.
Nagra filed for divorce in February to end their three-year marriage. The couple have a three-year-old son named Kai.
