Most people remember Eddie Murphy Raw right? One of the classic bits was when Eddie Murphy is talking about how he was reading about Johnnie Carson’s divorce settlement in the National Enquirer.
Watch the video (strong language)
Which brings us to CBS sportscaster Jim Nantz who divorce was finally settled today and his ex-wife ended up with a $916,000 a year settlement.
Let me repeat:
$916,000 a year
Thanks to our friends at RPulse.com here is the breakdown:
Nantz pays $72,000 monthly in alimony until he dies or his ex-wife remarries, and another $1,000 weekly in child support for their 15-year-old daughter, Caroline, for the next two years. His ex-wife Lorrie, gets their six-bedroom home in Westport.
Nantz makes 3.2 million a year from CBS and about 4 more millions for various projects. So she didn’t quite get half, but I am sure that is no comfort to Nantz.
They have been married for 26 years, so at least you can say she stuck around for a bit.
I am trying to think what his Ex will be doing with $72,000 a month considering most people would love to make that in a year.
In the immortal words of someone it is cheaper to keep her.
I find it funny that Nantz cried on the witness stand as he describe his marriage ending. I would cry to if I knew I had to pay almost a million dollars a year to a woman who I wasn’t breaking lamps with.
Of course Nantz cheated on his wife (he said the marriage was already dead by then) with a younger #noho and I am sure his wife was sleeping with the pool boy, but still almost a million dollars is a lot of money.
Maybe Tim Tebow can console him.
