Former First Lady of Iceland, Dorrit Moussaieff, shared her problem with a neighbor with a Daily Mail reporter which is now featured on the front page of the paper.

In the interview, she explains that her apartment, located in one of London's most elegant squares, has been severely damaged by water that continues to flow down from the home of hedge fund manager Greg Coffey.

However, not only has the apartment itself been damaged, but Dorrit’s assets have also been destroyed, as the apartment is said to be full of designer products.

Among the most expensive items that have been destroyed are two pairs of Chanel pumps, which are estimated to be worth up to £10,000, or more than ISK 1.7 million.

In addition, valuable photographs have also been damaged along with clothes from famous fashion houses that cannot be repaired.

Can't stay in the apartment anymore

“I never know when the next flood will start. It’s had a terrible effect on me,” said Dorrit, who also says she has had allergic reactions to mold caused by the water and can’t stay in the apartment anymore.

“Books, photographs, paperwork. And all the problems that come with not being able to live in my property – not being able to invite my husband’s children and my siblings there, and this recurring lack of any... cordial response,” she explained.

“Everything in this wardrobe was special”

Dorrit says she is also upset about the clothes that have been destroyed, but the closet contained many of her favorite garments.

“Everything that was in there was destroyed. Everything in this wardrobe was special - these were my most special clothes that were in the UK,” she said, but the wardrobe contained clothes from many of the world’s biggest designers, from Oscar de la Renta to Prada and Dolce & Gabbana.

She says the water comes from the home of Coffey, an Australian hedge fund manager, who lives in London and was called "The Wizard of Oz" or "The Wizard in Oz" years ago. Dorrit says she will sue Coffey for the damages.
