    Court claim for at least £200k over Tory peer Michelle Mone’s ‘racist’ WhatsApp message

    Tory peer Michelle Mone is being sued for unlimited damages after she allegedly called a financial consultant a “waste of a man’s white skin”.

    The millionaire bra tycoon, 50, has had a 10-page claim filed against her by Richard Lynton-Jones, who is of Indian heritage, in the High Court in London.

    Mr Lynton-Jones, 42, claims Mone’s actions have caused him “enormous distress, embarrassment and injury to feelings” and is demanding at least £200,000 in aggravated damages.

    Their bitter dispute dates back to a 2019 crash involving her husband Doug Barrowman’s yacht in Cannes when crew member Jake Feldwhere, 29, died.

    Baroness Mone is said to have later sent the “racist” WhatsApp message to Mr Lynton-Jones and others. In other messages, she is also accused of calling his then partner “a mental loony”, “mad” and “a nut case bird”.

    Her office said: “Baroness Mone is 100% not a racist.”
