Wall Street man sues poker star ex?
A New York hedge-fund boss is suing his poker-pro ex-wife for a reason that would be like a stiletto to the heart of any pump-crazy girl — her shoe collection.
Daniel Shak claims Beth Shak never told him about her stockpile of 1,200 pairs of designer shoes when they divorced three years ago, the New York Post reported.
The finance titan claims that she hid the $1 million collection from him and that its value may entitle him to hundreds of thousands of dollars more in their divorce settlement.
In addition to her fame as a World Series of Poker player, Beth is known as one of the world's top footwear aficionados. Her collection has been featured in MTV's "Cribs."
Beth Shak's website advertises her love of shoes and fashion above her poker interests, with numerous pictures of her posing in exotic heels and the Marilyn Monroe quote, "Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world."
"I'm shaking my head over this whole thing," she said. "He is saying he didn't know the closet in our master bedroom existed," in reference to his claim that the shoes were kept in a "secret room."
Daniel claims he found out about the shoes only last year.
"In the summer of 2011, Daniel became aware that Beth owned and failed to disclose an extensive . . . collection of Christian Louboutin shoes . . . and other high-end designer shoes and bags," his suit says.
A Huffington Post poll found readers split almost 50/50 on the pair's dispute.
