Clive Shaw had to turn to court over his inheritance after he was disowned by his parents.

Clive says it's all because his mother doesn't like his girlfriend. He had a falling out with his family in 2016 and was written out of his parents' wills.

His mother, Gillian, thinks his girlfriend, Lesley Hollis, is nothing more than a gold digger who wants his family's money.

Furthermore, the elderly parents feel that their son didn't work hard enough to earn the farm. They also say he always complained that he hated cows.

Clive claims he gave up most of his adult life to Whaley Farm. He insists he never said he hated the cows - he doesn't like them, that's all.

Clive's parents also say they have financially compensated their son for the little work he did over the years.

Their lawyer says Clive is very depended on his parents and lived on the farm without paying for long periods.

He now runs an American show-truck business and lives in a caravan on the farm, according to a report by IOL News.
