Belly Dance Spoils Ex-Wife’s Divorce Deal

Family Law

In the United States a woman has had her alimony cut after her ex-husband saw online pictures of her belly dancing.  She had claimed she was unable to work due to injuries from a car accident in 1997 and was being paid $850 a month in maintenance.  A judge ruled that this should be reduced to $400 a month after the pictures appeared online along with the boast that she danced vigorously for several hours every day.  She was also ordered to pay her ex-husbands legal fees and hand over 60% from the sale of their former home.
