Designer handbags and Rolex watches are negotiating chips few of us can count on in a bitter argument.
But those luxuries are now at the center of a split between former Italian footballer Francesco Totti and his wife, 17, Ilary Blasi.
The couple, who dubbed the Italian Posh and Becks, were thought to be inseparable.
But Totti has accused Miss Blasi of cheating on him and running off with his Rolex watches.
In response, the ex-Roma striker has taken her collection of designer shoes and handbags “hostage” until his timepieces are returned.
‘What should I do? I hid the bags hoping for an exchange,” he told Milan-based Corriere della Sera.

His soon-to-be ex-father-in-law was also accused of helping to clean up his collection “including boxes and guarantees”.
A source close to Totti told Italian media: “All she has to do is return the watches and that’s over.”
Miss Blasi made a video seemingly mocking Totti on Instagram, posing in front of a Rolex store.
But she has taken serious action over her designer bags and shoes by asking a judge to order their return.
Totti, 46, split from the 41-year-old TV presenter and mother of their three children in July.

Totti now faces a bitter divorce battle over claims he turned down Miss Blasi’s demands for £32,000 a month in alimony.
“We were sure they were different, almost Disney-esque, that he was good and she was lovely,” wrote a commentator in Italian newspaper La Stampa.
Totti decided to search his wife’s phone after hearing rumors last year that she was cheating on him.
“I had never done that in 20 years, and she had never done it to me either. But when I got warnings from different people I trust, I started to suspect,” he said, adding that he “wasn’t the first to cheat in marriage.”
Miss Blasi did not address the infidelity allegations, but said: “I discovered things that would ruin 50 families.”
