James Stunt, a broke ex-billionaire, is fighting his father in court over a painting worth millions of dollars.

James Stunt, a broke ex-billionaire, is in court with his father over ownership of a million-dollar Dutch painting.

Stunt, an art and gold bullion dealer, hoped that selling the Cheeke Sisters, a 17th century masterpiece by Sir Anthony Van Dyke, would help him get out of financial trouble.


In June 2019, the ex-husband of Formula One heiress Petra Ecclestone filed for bankruptcy, owing more than £5 million in debt.

He was sued by his lawyer, a gambling firm, and former bodyguards prior to his 2018 divorce battle over a £5.5 billion fortune.

Ian Defty and Adrian Hyde have been named to the board of trustees.

Geoffrey Lee Stunt has now filed a lawsuit, claiming ownership of the painting.

James Stunt “is the rightful owner of the painting,” according to the trustees, who are fighting him in London’s High Court.

His financial affairs were entrusted to trustees, whose job it is to locate his assets and pay off his debts to the extent possible.

They claim that James is the “rightful owner” in London’s High Court.

A hearing date is to be set.
