Ryan Giggs and wife Stacey to divorce

11 August 2017 National News


The estranged wife of former Manchester United footballer Ryan Giggs has been granted a divorce at London’s Family Court.

Stacey Cooke married Giggs in September 2007 and the couple have two children.

Her lawyer, James Brown, said she wished to finalise the divorce with as little attention on proceedings as possible.

“Mrs Giggs’ primary focus has always been and will continue to be the welfare of her family,” he said.

“Her only interest is bringing these events to as swift and amicable a conclusion as possible, so that she and her family can move on.”

The pair split last year, and have since been involved in proceedings relating to division of marital assets at the Family Court.

If an agreement is not reached it is expected that a judge will decide the share Mrs Giggs will receive.

Earlier this year Mr Justice Cobb made an order limiting what journalists could report on the case, prohibiting the reporting of private financial information and the names of the pair’s children.

that he made a “special contribution” to the creation of wealth during the marriage.

The football star retired from Manchester United as a player in 2014, after making a record 963 appearances over 24 seasons for the club.

He also won 64 Welsh international caps.
