GREAT WHITE SHARK BITES WIFE! Greg 'changes locks and cuts up credit cards' in divorce fight.

Byline: By ANTON ANTONOWICZ US Correspondent

GOLF ace Greg Norman has been accused of cutting up wife Laura's credit cards and changing the locks on their home to force her into signing divorce papers.

Her lawyers say Greg, nicknamed the Great White Shark, is using a dirty tricks campaign to pressure her into taking a cutprice settlement after a year of squabbling.

And she insists that while Norman, worth an estimated pounds 250million, is swanning around the world with new girlfriend, tennis legend Chris Evert, 52, she has been left with no means of support.

Her lawyers say he has changed the locks in their pounds 10.5million Florida home which Laura was expected to get as part of the agreement - and fired the housekeeper.

Norman has also allegedly cut off access to credit cards from his firm Great White Shark enterprises, said to be her only source of income.

In court papers the lawyers say Norman is "attempting to starve her out so she has no choice but to surrender to his position".

His attorney Martin Haines calls 57-year-old Laura's poverty claims "laughable".

He added: "I would say she is spending as she wishes and vacationing as she wants. "She does not meet the dictionary definition of impoverished."

Norman filed for divorce last June after 25 years of marriage.

They have two children.
