// Sir Philip Green’s wife Tina Green bought multimillion-pound properties during BHS collapse
// The purchases included a £15m flat in Mayfair and a new home for daughter Chloe Green
// The BHS collapse led to the loss of thousands of jobs
Sir Philip Green’s wife Tina Green bought multimillion-pound properties in London as BHS, the department store chain owned by the couple, was on the brink of collapse.
The purchases included a £15 million flat in Mayfair as well as a new home for the Greens’ daughter Chloe near Buckingham Palace, bought for £10.6 million in 2016.
The spending took place in the months after Green sold BHS for £1 to the twice-bankrupt businessman Dominic Chappell.
The purchases have been discovered in one of the biggest leaks of financial documents ever.
Green’s identity as the buyer of London properties was hidden as the properties were purchased through anonymous company based in the tax haven of the British Virgin Islands.
BHS collapsed in 2016, leading to the loss of 11,000 jobs.
The collapse came as it emerged the business had a black hole of nearly £600 million in its pension fund.
