Author Dan Brown’s ex-wife has accused him in a new lawsuit of secretly siphoning off vast sums of money to conduct “sordid, extra-marital affairs” — including a dalliance with a horse trainer, according to media reports.

Blythe Brown made the salacious allegations against her ex-husband Dan Brown — whose 2003 novel “The Da Vinci Code” sold 80 million copies — in a bombshell lawsuit filed Monday in New Hampshire, The Boston Globe reported.

The pair divorced last December after more than 21 years of marriage, according to the newspaper.

Blythe alleges in the suit that her 56-year-old ex engaged in “unlawful and egregious conduct” that amounted to a “proverbial life of lies” during the final years of their union — including lavishing extravagant gifts on a Dutch horse trainer, the Globe reported.

She brought the trainer, identified by the initials JP, from Holland to the U.S. in 2013 to work with a Friesian horse the couple owned, according to the suit filed in Rockingham Superior Court.

After the pair’s divorce was finalized, Blythe alleges she learned that her then-husband had begun an affair with JP in 2014, the newspaper reported.

The trainer was recuperating from a shoulder injury in the couple’s New Hampshire at the home.

Blythe alleges that the bestselling author had diverted large sums of money from their accounts to buy the trainer a $345,000 prize-winning Friesian named “LimiTed Edition,” the report says.

He also allegedly bought his mistress a new car, a truck and paid for renovations to her Holland home, substantially reducing the marital estate, Blythe Brown argued in the suit.

After she learned of the alleged affair, she confronted her ex-husband in January 2020, according to the Globe.

“I’ve done bad things with a lot of people,” he allegedly told her, admitting he’d also had a tryst with a local hairdresser, the suit alleges.

She claims she later discovered that these weren’t his only conquests.

He’d allegedly bedded his personal trainer and a “political official” at the couple’s vacation home in Anguilla, the paper reported.

In the suit, Blythe says she played a critical part in her husband’s success as his lead researcher. She said she “developed the premise of the critical concepts, historical emphases and complex plot twists” for all his novels — including “The Da Vinci Code” which was adapted into a movie of the same name starring Tom Hanks.

The film was a box-office hit, grossing more than $760 million worldwide.

Dan Brown has frequently touted his ex-wife’s substantial role in crafting his books, the paper reported.

After he told her he was unhappy and wanted to separate, Blythe moved out of their New Hampshire home in 2018 and agreed to a quiet divorce.

In a statement to the Globe, she said it was only after they split that she learned he had allegedly been “leading a double life for years.”

She’s suing Dan for allegedly misrepresenting the couple’s assets in the divorce and for inflicting emotional distress.

Dan insisted to the paper that he accurately reported the couple’s assets in the divorce and was “stunned” by his ex-wife’s “false claims.”

“I am saddened that there is not enough goodwill from 21 years of marriage to temper her unfortunate actions,” he said in a statement.

    Browns Reported Interest in Top Free Agent Disputed

    Getty Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski.

    Before Cam Newton signed with the New England Patriots, the former MVP wasn’t drawing much attention on the free agent market. In fact, it was next to none.

    According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, outside of the Patriots, the Cleveland Browns were the only other team to contact Newton about a possible deal.

    “The truth of the matter is that Cam Newton did not have any other offers from any other teams. There was one other team that did have one conversation with him,” Schefter said on his podcast. “It was very brief and didn’t go very far, but the Cleveland Browns did speak to Cam Newton at one point in time, but those talks never really went anywhere. They did with New England and Cam winds up on a one-year contract with the Patriots, which makes all the sense in the world.”

    Patriots were the only team to make an offer to Cam Newton. But there as one other team that checked in with him.
