REUTERS/Neil HallA wealthy businesswoman in Britain took her husband to divorce court after he refused to pay attention to the erotic blockbuster “Fifty Shades of Grey” with an eye to bettering their sex life, the Daily Mail has reported.
The 41-year-old banker wanted to add spice to the couple’s sex life by consulting the raunchy series but was turned down by her husband. She filed a divorce case soon after, citing her husband's unwillingness to participate in her efforts to salvage their sex life.
The husband agreed to take on the accusation of "unreasonable behavior" to finalize the divorce as quickly as possible.
The "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy has become a global phenomenon over recent months with over 60 million copies sold worldwide. Universal Pictures and Focus Features, who snapped up the film rights in March for $5 million, said Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti – collaborators on "The Social Network" -- will produce the film adaptation.
