GIGGS AND EX-WIFE SETTLE CASH FIGHT.
FORMER Wales and Manchester United footballer Ryan Giggs and his estranged wife, Stacey, have settled a fight over cash in a "financial dispute resolution" divorce hearing.
Lawyers representing both parties announced a settlement following Thursday's behindclosed-doors case, and said the "FDR process" had helped the pair reach agreement.
The hearing in London was presided over by High Court judge Mr Justice Mostyn, who specialises in family litigation. Judges overseeing such hearings offer guidance in the hope that disputes can be resolved, rather that make decisions.
"Ryan and Stacey Giggs are pleased to say that with the assistance of the court-driven FDR process they have managed to reach a financial settlement in their divorce," said solicitors Katie McCann, who represents Giggs, and James Brown, who represents Mrs Giggs.
"This concludes the divorce proceedings and they will not be making any further comment."
Lawyers said the terms of the settlement were confidential but added the Giggs' were leaving "this chapter of their lives" as "firm friends".
In August a family court judge had signalled the end of the Giggs' 10-year marriage.
