I can’t believe July’s over and I missed it, the big divorce settlement of Swedish countess Marie Douglas-David and her investor hubby George David. Remember them? They made big headlines when this nuptial mess started back in the spring in Hartford, Connecticut. Then it was placed on a back-burner because they were both too busy to get down to the multi-million dollar dilemma.
It turns out it settled mid-July. She walks away with her contracted pre-nup settlement of $43 million plus an extra $5 or 10 million in personal property, making her take about $21,000 for every day they were married. Sounds like a great deal to me. Where can I sign up?
The countess had been trying to grab nearly a third of her hubby’s $329 million fortune. He is the former chairman of United Technologies and obviously had better lawyers; yet she is still one very lucky lady!
