James was seen clutching a bizarre walkie-talkie device when he headed outside for a cigarette during his night at the plush eatery. Petra’s former flame put the divorce battle out of mind on his night out as he was in high spirits for the night out.

Baroness Fiona Shackleton, who previously acted on behalf of Sir Paul McCartney during his divorce with Heather Mills, is representing Petra. 

This comes amid her billionaire ex-husband James reacting angrily to cynical claims that a £90 million burglary at his home was a con.

He had previously claimed that he was the victim of Britain’s biggest ever burglary with £90million of cash and valuables.

The plush items were said to have been stolen from his house in Belgravia, which he moved into after the pair split. 

On Monday, James slammed critics who have accused the burglary of being a fake.

He said: ‘I’ve nothing to hide. I’m a victim with no upside to this embarrassment of having no insurance.

‘It’s disgusting how people are commenting that I’m a criminal. It’s not true or fair. I just want whoever did this arrested and my things back.

James told police that thieves had emptied the safe in the basement of his Georgian townhouse in Belgravia in December as he slept upstairs.

Cash, gold and diamond jewellery worth up to £90million was stolen in the raid, according to The Sun on Sunday.

Other items taken include pink, yellow, white and blue diamond rings, as well as cash, gold bars and his passport.

Asked what the latest update was on the investigation, James said: ‘You will have to talk to the Flying Squad. I have no insurance. I’m a victim.’
