Still friends af­ter split

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Guide - -

NIGEL Lyth­goe was tem­po­rar­ily re­united with es­tranged wife Bon­nie Lyth­goe (above) dur­ing his re­cent visit to Aus­tralia. He says the pair have been apart for seven years and go­ing through pro­longed di­vorce pro­ceed­ings for the past 3½ years.

‘‘I’m very proud of what she’s do­ing down here (on the show),’’ he says. ‘‘It’s ev­ery­thing she’s ever wanted.

‘‘I don’t think we’ll get back to­gether in mar­riage but I think we’ll con­tinue to be great friends. I had a heart at­tack and peri­toni­tis in the States and she’s al­ways been there for me.

‘‘She never wanted to live in the States and that’s what re­ally split us apart. It’s strange be­ing in the same ho­tel (for So You Think You Can Dance) and go­ing to two dif­fer­ent rooms.

‘‘My money is in­vested in prop­erty and at this time it makes no sense to sell ev­ery­thing. Un­til we can ap­praise ev­ery­thing and sell ev­ery­thing we will con­tinue to ar­gue fi­nan­cially.

‘‘With the down­turn in shares and ev­ery­thing I’ve lost 50 per cent of my money and I’ve still got my wife. It’s worse than a di­vorce.’’
