A millionaire who turned a massive foreign lottery win into a business empire wants his ex-wife’s parents evicted from his huge mansion.
New Zealand-born Mr Kennedy said he let Joanne, 68, and Michael Podmore, 62, live rent-free in the property, which has panoramic views of the coast, since 2016.

Mr Kennedy filed a claim in Queensland’s Supreme Court seeking to evict his in-laws, the Courier Mail reported.
His lawyers wrote to the Podmores last July saying that unless they paid $2.1 million, he would sell the four-bedroom home.
The Podmores then lodged a caveat over the house in Gabrielle Grove in August, and Mr Kennedy now wants that removed and vacant possession to sell it.
The in-laws claimed in oral agreements they spent money renovating the property and the caveat protected their stake they earned from the improvements.
In response, Mr Kennedy said the Podmores were never the owners and any upgrades they did were for lifestyle reasons and not to increase the home’s worth.
The Burleigh home, which boasts panoramic views of the coastline, is owned by Mr Kennedy’s company Railton Holdings Pty Ltd, as trustee for the Burleigh Property Trust.
The claim also said the property is owned by Mr Kennedy’s company Railton Holdings Pty Ltd, as trustee for Burleigh Property Trust.
