Guy Ritchie Walks Away From the Divorce With $76 Million

By December 16, 2008

Follow me on:

Guy Ritchie hit the jackpot when he decided to call it quits with his wife Madonna. After months of mud slinging, Madonna, 50, and Guy, 40 have finally reached a settlement in the divorce. When all is said and done, Guy will walk away with between $76 million and $92 million, according to People.

Original rumors had the amount somewhere in the $30 million ballpark. Mind you, the payout will definitely not be in the form of one fat check. Some of it factors in the value of their home in western England as well as their London pub. Do you think he'll take some of the cash and hit up Vegas?

Yes, I agree he earned it. She had to be a b*tch to live with. Actually, he didn’t get that much money considering what she is worth. He also didn’t want tons of her money. He just wanted to get away from her. Good for him. I wish Guy the best.

What a little, little man Guy Ritchie must be to take money from a woman, when he has his own money??
And what is this bullcrap about he’s
earned it? Earned what? I heard, he never even made any attempt to ever really try to get along with Lourdes
(Madonna’s love child with ex-bf Carlos Leon), as it was no secret that the relationship between
stepfather and Lourdes was quite strained. Besides any other problems
they may have been having, if your spouse has a strained relationship with your child, that’s not good at all! But, he did NOT deserve the queen of pop, anyway. He’s an idiot and so not good enough for her!
