A bizarre love saga became a bizarre legal saga yesterday when an elderly married woman went to the High Court to fight for a bigger share of her deceased boyfriend's $5 million estate. The court heard Lee Po-san, 69, had married an English serviceman in 1971. She left him soon after, but they were never divorced. Fung Shing-ting, Ms Lee's boyfriend before and after her time with her husband, had separated from his wife, who disappeared in 1969 and was never heard from again. Barrister Cynthia Li, for Ms Lee, told the court both her client and Fung had been diagnosed as suffering from schizophrenia. She said Ms Lee and Fung had first moved in together in 1957. But Ms Lee moved out in 1969 because Fung had no income, which forced her to foot the household bills. The couple rekindled their relationship in the early 1970s, after they had both separated from their spouses, after bumping into each other in Caine Road, Mid-Levels. Fung told his old flame he had changed his ways and wanted her to live with him in his $170,000 Happy Valley flat, Ms Li said. He promised to write up a will leaving Ms Lee the flat and five per cent of his estate. In May 1975, the pair moved in together again, Ms Li told the court. She said Fung's Happy Valley flat had been a 'love nest' for the couple, who covered their expenses with winnings from the racetrack. 'This was a very interesting household where neither of them was working,' said Mr Justice William Waung Sik-ying. 'Both of them were spending all their time gambling.' Fung died of a heart attack in 1986 at the age of 69, leaving two wills, Ms Li said. The first, written in 1976, left 15 per cent of his estate to his estranged wife, and ownership of the flat and five per cent of the estate to Ms Lee. The second, written five years later, left everything to Ms Lee. In 1991, a judge ruled the second will invalid because Fung's mental deterioration made it unclear whether the document had been created 'in a lucid moment', Ms Li said. The case continues.
