Barkin Sold Off 'Battle Scar' Jewellery
Actress ELLEN BARKIN sold all the jewellery her ex-husband RON PERELMAN gave her because it reminded her of her miserable marriage.
The actress split up from the Revlon cosmetics boss last February (06) after six years of marriage.
Last October (06) Barkin sold gems Perelman had given her during their union for a staggering $20 million (GBP10 million), and now describes them as "battle scars".
She tells Parade magazine, " I didn't want to look down at my hand and be reminded of why I left him. I didn't need to carry around baggage of a man who had tried to make me Mrs. Somebody. The jewellery wasn't a trophy for me. It was more like a battle scar."
