The billionaire Tycoon Warren Lichtenstein is suing his ex-fiancée Annabelle Bond and her new wealthy lover, Andrew Cader, for allegedly conspiring to take his money. Lichtenstein, who has a 5-year-old daughter with Bond named Isabella, says she has teamed up with Cader to win the largest child support award in Hong Kong history.
Lichtenstein has accused Bond and Cader, of moving to Hong Kong in order to manipulate its court system in an attempt to win a child support settlement of more than $40,000 per month for their daughter.
43-year-old Annabelle Bond is the daughter of the British knight Sir John Bond, former Chairman of HSBC and current Chairman of Vodafone. She was born in 1969 in Singapore, and has lived in Hong Kong, Indonesia, US, UK, and Switzerland. Bond studied in Cobham Hall, Kent.
Annabelle Bond worked in Real Estate for ten years in Hong Kong, and became the director of the company.
Bond is a mountain-climbing socialite, international adventurer and activist. She has scaled some of the world’s highest mountains. Her first climb was Aconcagua in Argentina in December 2001. She continued to scale numerous peaks above 6,000 meters in Chile, Ecuador and Bolivia with her Chilean team.
Bond became the fourth British woman to climb the summit of Mount Everest on May 15, 2004. Her televised climb pictured her as the glamorous blonde who brought her lipstick to the summit of Everest. In 2005, she became the fastest woman and fourth fastest person to ever climb all Seven Summits, when she climbed them in 360 days. Bond also won the title of second fastest woman to complete the 103 kilometer MacLehose Trail marathon in Hong Kong.
On June 17th, 2006, Annabelle was awarded an OBE (Civil Division) For services to Mountaineering and to the Eve Appeal.
Besides climbing, Annabelle Bond spends much of her time in charity fundraising and heads the Eve Appeal to raise money for Ovarian Cancer. She spoke of her own ovarian tumor in a brave attempt to get more women to seek treatment, as well as to raise awareness.
She is now dating Andrew Cader, former CEO of Spear, Leeds and Kellogg, and an owner of the Tampa Bay Rays.
