Richie's Estranged Wife Arrested

LATEST: Soul star LIONEL RICHIE's estranged wife DIANE has been arrested for allegedly allowing her boyfriend to operate an illegal cosmetic surgery clinic in her bathroom.

Diane was arrested on Monday (15NOV04) and charged with aiding and abetting DANIEL TOMAS FUENTE SERRANO, who allegedly injected patients - including Lionel - with anti-wrinkle drugs, which had not received approval by health bodies.

Diane was released from jail on Tuesday (16NOV04) on $25,000 (GBP13,800) bail.

Court documents show Serrano has reportedly made thousands of dollars (pounds) by charging people for the injections in Diane's Beverly Hills home, despite the illegal status of the drugs and the fact he does not have a license to practice medicine in America.

Federal investigators allege Serrano has an Argentinean doctor's license, but is only registered as a nurse in California.

Serrano is due to apply for bail at a hearing tomorrow (18NOV04).

Diane filed for divorce from the singer last year (03) and in March (04) demanded $300,000 (GBP166,000) a month in maintenance support payments, including huge monthly amounts for clothing, shoes and accessories, dermatology, laser hair removal and jewellery.
