Guy Ritchie gets $48 million in divorce deal



Tbdguymadonna120908 The final settlement figures in the divorce of Madonna and Guy Ritchie are in, if anyone cares to feel bad about their bank accounts this holiday season. Madge is forking over £32 million to Guy, News of the World reports, which works out to somewhere in the neighborhood of $48 million, depending on exchange rates. And that's with him not asking for anything!

He's getting £12 million in cash, and the couple's £20 million country estate in Wiltshire, but Madonna gets to keep their London home. Ritchie also keeps the Punchbowl pub they owned together, but has otherwise signed away any rights to Madge's fortune. Imagine what he'd've gotten if he contested the settlement!

But since she also is helping Guy buy new homes in London and New York to be near kids David and Rocco when they're with her, Madonna is apparently a bit torqued about how the news is being spread.

"She is fed-up at reports that Guy is walking away with no money — she has sorted his finances for life," a source told NOTW. But to be fair, the director will never get all those eight years of his life back. At least she won an invasion of privacy case against the Mail on Sunday, for which she was seeking some $7.5 million in damages.
