Author Dan Brown’s ex-wife has accused him in a new lawsuit of secretly siphoning off vast sums of money to conduct “sordid, extra-marital affairs” — including a dalliance with a horse trainer, according to media reports.
Blythe Brown made the salacious allegations against her ex-husband Dan Brown — whose 2003 novel “The Da Vinci Code” sold 80 million copies — in a bombshell lawsuit filed Monday in New Hampshire, The Boston Globe reported.
The pair divorced last December after more than 21 years of marriage, according to the newspaper.
Blythe alleges in the suit that her 56-year-old ex engaged in “unlawful and egregious conduct” that amounted to a “proverbial life of lies” during the final years of their union — including lavishing extravagant gifts on a Dutch horse trainer, the Globe reported.
She brought the trainer, identified by the initials JP, from Holland to the U.S. in 2013 to work with a Friesian horse the couple owned, according to
