The estranged wife of celebrity chef Marco Pierre White has been charged with vandalising his car ... with a child's scooter.

The wealthy celebrity chef owns two restaurants in Fulham's Chelsea Village development at Stamford Bridge, Marco in partnership with Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich and Frankie's Sports Bar and Grill, in partnership with Frankie Detori.

Mati Conejero, 47, is accused of damaging his Range Rover in May while it was parked outside his flat in West London.

Ms Conejero has pleaded not guilty to criminal damage and is due to appear before Isleworth Crown Court in October.

Mr White, 50, who has an estimated fortune of £25 million, met his wife in 1992 and they married in 2000.

They began divorce proceedings in 2007, but halted them last year after running up legal bills totalling an estimated £3million.

According to reports, Ms Conejero lives in a flat above a pizza restaurant once owned by Mr White, in Chiswick, while he lives in a £2.5million flat in Holland Park.

Details of the court appearance emerged less than three weeks Mr White was seen dining in Chiswick with actress Emilia Fox.
