Not So Amicable

It seems that reports that Madonna and Guy Ritchie had reached a completely agreed settlement, with Ritchie making no claim against Madonna's fortune, were somewhat premature. BBC News has confirmed reports that Madonna has paid Ritchie around £50m as part of their divorce settlement, and that arrangements for their children have yet to be finalised. As I've said before, I'm not interested in whether this is the largest divorce payout, but I am saddened that things were apparently not as friendly as was first thought - a high-profile amicable settlement would have served as an example of how things can be done.


  1. Poor old Guy, eh? only £50 million.... * sigh*. Well, at least I suppose he is crying in the back of his Rolls Royce, as opposed to the back of the Clapham Omnibus, along with many other fathers following divorce " settlements"....!

  2. Yes, you've got to feel sorry for him...
