The Unsettled Settlement

The Unsettled Settlement

As usual, tabloids are falling all over each other to be the first to break the news on one of the biggest divorce settlements of the century: Madonna vs. Guy Ritchie. Rumors were flying this weekend that the couple had reached an agreement with Ritchie getting a hefty $60 million plus the properties in Europe. The celebrity duo was estimated at $525 million, with the bulk of that sum belonging to Madonna. Ritchie's esimated worth is around $35 million.

However, Madonna’s publicist said Monday that the couple’s divorce settlement has not been finalized yet. In addition, no decisions have been reached regarding custody of the couple’s children. Madonna has a daughter, Lourdes, from a previous relationship, and the couple shares a biological son, Rocco, and David Banda, their adopted son from Malawi.
 
The stars did not establish a prenuptial agreement before they wed in 2000. While it’s understandable for those of us not raking in millions of dollars a year to worry about a prenuptial agreement, once you hit a certain income, it seems only natural to protect your assets. This becomes especially true if there’s as large of a disparity as what is between Madonna and Guy.

What are your thoughts on prenuptial agreements? Should Madonna and Guy have known better than to think it would last? [The Associated Press]

I've been really depress and been in so much pains after my wife left me. Our son is just 8 without her mother. Life can be very displeasing especially when i try every way possible to get her back and all i got is been scammed by this fake Spiritual Spell Casters.... I'm new on this spell stuff but after talking and chatting with Dr. Trust then i realize he is the man i can completely trust. I know there are many of you out there who are in the same problem too and also looking for a real spell caster that can give wealth and bring back your love again.. Dr. Trust is real and in just 2 days of his spell my whole story got turn around and things started to be as before.

I followed his advice and Spell instructions, and fortunately, I'm a success story! Kathy is back now and im so glad our son got to see her mother again. Now we're better than ever. Dr. Trust spell really worked and he has been very helpful, and I can't believe it worked so well! I'm honestly, still in shock! :) If you feel like your relationship is salvageable, and you need help contact him .. It never too late ((Ultimatespellcast@yahoo.com or Ultimatespellcast@gmail.com WEB SITE: Link OR CALL +2348156885231
