Ritchie to get £32mn in divorce package
Pop singer Madonna is reportedly set to hand out £32 million to ex-hubby Guy Ritchie as part of the divorce package. The RocknRolla director is said to receive £12 million in cash in his account in addition to having ownership of the Queen of Pop’s £20 million Ashcombe House country estate in Wiltshire.
The Brit will further hold on to his £3 million Punchbowl pub as the Material Girl keeps their London marital abode, reports News of the World.
However, a pal close to Guy, already worth £30 million, revealed that the filmmaker did not want any cash piece of the megastar’s £300 million wealth.
The source said, “He is getting one lump sum imminently. Guy wanted to stay in their London home but Madonna refused to split it in two, and eventually gave him £12 million as compensation. Guy’s ducked out of fighting over her fortune, even though he could be entitled to a big chunk. He never wanted any cash handouts. He agreed with Madonna’s demands to keep the peace.” — Agencies
