WEST PALM BEACH — Didn’t take long: Just hours after Gossip Extra reported exclusively that Palm Beach Post Society Editor Lizzi Bickford Sned swore out a criminal complaint against her local blue-blooded husband, the leggy hottie filed for divorce after barely two years of marriage!
According to Palm Beach County court records, Lizzi says her union to real estate developer William Harmen Sned III, aka Trey Sned, 33, grandson of local pioneers and society stalwarts Dick and Pat Johnson, is irretrievably broken.
In her petition, Lizzi says the lovebirds were married April 5, 2014, after signing a pre-nuptial agreement. Now, she wants every penny that the document gives her!
“The wife is in need of, and the husband has the ability to pay an award of temporary alimony,” Lizzi’s filing reads. “The husband does not require alimony, in any form.”
She also wants half the assets that the couple acquired in accordance with the pre-nupt, according to court papers.
While he’s been served, according to records, Trey has yet to respond to his wife’s filing.
In March, the 30-year-old Lizzi told West Palm Beach Police she was smacked upside the head by her husband in the middle of a downtown restaurant after he became “belligerent” and “hostile” towards her, according to the report.
She said he used his umbrella while walking out on her.
West Palm Beach police have not filed charges in the incident caught on surveillance video at Lynora’s on Clematis Street.
In addition to producing the shrinking newspaper’s Notables section, a collection of photos from fancy black-tie events, Lizzi runs an event planning company in The Hamptons and Palm Beach, Events by Lizzi Bickford. (The two jobs clearly present a serious conflict of interest, but conflicts at the Post are too numerous to count!)
Sned The Third, meanwhile, is a real estate broker who’s developing a small property in Palm Beach His family has had a hand in numerous community projects over the past 50 years, including the Palm Beach County History Museum in the old courthouse.

“The husband slammed his plate of food down in front of her and on his way out of the restaurant, he turned around and struck the victim in the back of the head with the end of his umbrella,” the report reads.
Lizzi was not injured, physically at least.
