    A billionaire in the midst of a lengthy divorce has claimed to want to move on with his 34-year-old girlfriend.

    John Paulson, with a net worth – according toForbes –of around £2.6billion, is believed to be hunkering down with Alina de Almeida in his plush Manhattan pad.

    Paulson, 66, is in the process of divorcing his wife of 20 years, Page Six reports.

    Influencer de Almeida runs a business selling diet plans for over £100 a pop. It is claimed by a source that: “He wants to have a baby with her and they are definitely getting married.”

    The unlikely couple move in New York’s elite social circles – earlier this week the MailOnline reported they had been snapped hanging out with the mayor of the city, Eric Adams.

    Alina shares content online of her enjoying herself in swanky spots, including images of her up the world-famous Rockefeller Centre in Manhattan.

    His future ex-wife is understood to have put the brakes on things though, reportedly turning her nose up a multi-million-dollar divorce settlement.

    According to reports, a source said she had been stunned to discover her husband had "run off" with the much younger De Almeida when she read an article on Page Six.

    Speaking to Page Six, John's attorney Bill Zabel said: “People would have been astounded by the generosity of Mr Paulson's offer, which would have given Ms Paulson far more than what is required by law.

    “Her greed has created an insurmountable obstacle to settlement.”

    She has sued him for $1billion (£0.86billlion) and reckons her old fella has been hiding his cash from her in "secretive trusts".

    Her lawyer, Robert Cohen, said: “Husbands who have made a fortune in the marriage do not give their wives allowances… He is trying to put pressure on her to accomplish a settlement, and it is just wrong.”
