    Well, he gets money from sponsorships and that depends on his reputation.

    But yeah, signing ALL his money away does not make sense, unless he really cares for his kids.

    She obviously knows things that haven't been made public. This buys her silence. Speculation has been steroid use or gay affairs.

    I'm forced to wonder exactly what she did to "deserve" that much of his present and future earnings (other than beat the tar out of him with a 7 iron). Yes, he broke the marriage contract and should be penalized for that, but this seems...excessive.

    Wow, just wow. The guy was left in the ruin after this payout.

    I bet this is her face after the pay out terms were signed:

    Excessive

    And one hell of a bad lawyer. Or good depending on which side.

    Its probably not just a lawyer, but a firm. I think the legal fees are up to 40% of the sum awarded.

    I didn't know he even had $750M. It's staggering that she could get that much. What could she possibly know that's worth that much?

    The dude was a necrophiliac. Seriously. Read between the lines. I'd want it kept secret. That, and all the murders.

    Judge not my fellow mac enthusiasts. We all have our dark secrets.

    She knows too much about his obsessions and infidelities. The stories involving the midget contortionists, capes, yo-yos, spiked paddles, Carrot-Top DVDs, and dead unicorns would ruin his career.

    That's the most expensive silence I've ever, uh, heard of.

    Agreed. She must know some pretty embarrassing things about him to get this sort of payoff.

    Well she certainly picked the right law firm…

    She gets most (if not all) of his money and gets to keep his balls in her handbag.

    Impressive.

    At this point, does anyone really care what dark secrets he may have? The man is mortal just like the rest of us...how utterly shocking. If it means that much to him and he pays it, shame on him. He could very easily tell her to go pound sand and who cares if she leaks his secrets. It'll all be yesterday's news soon enough and he should know that by now.

    Maybe it includes a phrase in which she has to "roll play".

    Otherwise it's not worth that much.

    Like Melrose, I also laughed at Carrot Top.
