A big presence in the social scene of Singapore, Jamie Cuaca is seeking $450,000 monthly maintenance from her ex-husband, Indonesian tycoon, Nurdian Cuaca.

The couple were married for 15 years before filing for divorce in February 2010 over 'unreasonable behaviour'. They have two children.

Since the story of their divorce surfaced, netizens have been abuzz as to why Jamie needs to have such a high maintenance allowance.

Perhaps it's to fund her love for fashion? The former flight stewardess and the one who opened the first Manolo Blahnik boutique in South-east Asia, Jamie's been dubbed as the woman who owns "the most number of Hermes Birking bags in the world."
