Ex-Neighbours star Holly Valance’s property tycoon husband, Nick Candy, is being sued for $247 million. Yikes!

The wealthy businessman and his brother, Christian Candy, have been accused of blackmailing property developer Mark Holyoake with ‘mafia’ style threats, and threatening to hurt his family.

The Candy’s and Holyoake reportedly fell out over a $22 million loan.

Nick, 43, will have to declare any assets he owns over $1.8 million in preparation for the trial, amidst assertions he is not the ‘billionaire’ he claims.

Mark Holyoake’s lawyer has since told the courts that ‘Despite the fact Nick Candy is stating he is a billionaire we cannot see where he gets any money from at all, still less to buy a yacht.’

The yacht in question is a $53 million gift Nick bought for the former pop star in January of this year, despite the singer being susceptible to seasickness.

Aussie Holly, 32, married Nick in 2012 after they met at a party in 2009. They share a daughter, Luka Violet Toni Candy, who was born in November 2013.
