The wife of a millionaire businessman who was proposed to in a flashy yachting stunt has been slapped with a restraining order against him after their relationship hit the rocks. <br />
<br />
Rebecca Vowles 'publicly humiliated' former husband Max Walker after posting an abusive rant questioning his parenting skills on Facebook.<br />
<br />
It had looked like plain sailing for the couple after he popped the question to her by stitching the words 'will you marry me?' onto a sail on his plush 38ft sailing boat during a race in 2009.<br />
<br />
The couple moved into a £2 million pound coastal pad in Poole, Dorset, ran a company selling discount goods online and had two children together.<br />
<br />
But just three years later their relationship turned stormy and they split up, kickstarting a string of bitter civil court clashes.
