The gates of wrath

The gates of wrath

Ornate gates and a 24/7-manned guardhouse cauterise the wealthy residents of this exclusive stretch of Illovo’s 5th Avenue from the rest of the world. But closed gates could not protect Karen Brouze from the enemy within - her allegedly abusive and philandering maybe-billionaire husband David Brouze.

Despite his much-denied great wealth, businessman David keeps himself out of the public eye. But in private, the former head boy of King David High School, who turned 47 on February 6, leads a colourful lifestyle now that he’s departed from Karen and number 32 5th Avenue. He’s got his new R20-million bachelor pad in Joburg’s Hyde Park, a R30m Cape Town holiday apartment at Clifton, a Ferrari and – so his about-to-be ex-wife claims – a brand new 21-year-old squeeze.

Now lurid accusations - and fish - fly in billionaire's bid for access to youngest child.

Who cares about these obnoxiously rich and sad people.
