A court in Hong Kong has thrown out a feng shui master’s claim to the multi-billion dollar estate of Asia’s richest woman, Nina Wang.

But a high court judge said the will was a fake and a 2002 will was valid which left the estate to a charitable trust run by Wang’s family.

Nina Wang’s Chinachem was worth $4.2bn at the time of her death in 2007.

The fortune had been part of an earlier dispute with her father-in-law.

High Court Judge Lam Man-hon ruled: “The court finds that the 2006 will was not signed by Nina.”
