It is being reported today that Madonna is getting off cheap. Apparently Madonna will give Guy Ritchie just $20 million in a divorce settlement. As part of the deal Guy, has agreed to a gagging clause that will prevent him from ever talking about their seven-and-a-half-year marriage. hmmm, can you just imagine how much money he would get for a tell all book?
They agreed to the settlement via their lawyers and film director Guy yesterday told friends he is ‘hugely relieved’ and walking away from the broken marriage ‘a happier man’. Madonna should count herself lucky she is worth around $600 million so paying Guy $20 million is a drop in the bucket for her. They have also agreed that Guy will have full access to their sons, eight-year-old Rocco and adopted David Banda, three.
Guy will own Ashcombe House, their 1,200 acre $20 million estate in Wiltshire, while Madonna will keep the couple’s $14 million townhouse in Marylebone in central London. A source close to Guy said last night: ‘He just wants out, he has had enough of the Madonna circus and he is massively relieved. It was never about the money.
