Celebrity exes Sally Ridge and Adam Parore have avoided appearing in the High Court in Auckland today as lawyers for both parties met to discuss attempts by Ridge to freeze Parore's assets.
The case was called before Justice Murray Gilbert and counsel Daniel Grove, for Ridge, and Zane Kennedy for Parore. Neither Parore nor Ridge appeared in court.
According to the proceedings list of the High Court, Ridge has applied to freeze Parore's assets. Parore opposes the proceedings.
A date has yet to be set for a hearing between the two parties.
The couple, who have two children together, ended their nine-year relationship in 2010. Last October Ridge withdrew her shareholdings in several of Parore's companies.
Parore is a former New Zealand cricketer who had an international career spanning 10 years. Following his cricket career he set up the self titled Adam Parore Mortgages.
Ridge, who was married to former league star Matthew Ridge, is an interior designer.
Neither lawyer would comment to media.
