    gordon's wife gets $15 million

    heres the story as reported by nascar.com

    Gordon's ex-wife gets at
    least $15.3M in divorce

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Four-time Winston Cup champion Jeff
    Gordon reached a divorce settlement that guarantees his former wife
    at least $15.3 million.

    Brooke Gordon waived alimony and will get the money from the sale
    of two properties, including the couple's oceanfront home in Highland
    Beach, according to court documents.

    It was unclear when the properties would be sold or how the couple
    would divide other assets, which include boats, an airplane and cars.

    Brooke Gordon filed for divorce in March 2002 after seven years of
    marriage, citing marital discord. She was "extremely pleased" with
    the settlement, said her lawyer, Terry Young.

    Jeff Gordon also said he was happy with the terms.

    In early court filings, Jeff Gordon estimated his worth at about $48.8
    million and his 2001 earnings at more than $18 million.

    Generally, Florida law requires assets amassed during a marriage to
    be split evenly, but Jeff Gordon contended he should not have to
    split the couple's estate because he risked his life to collect it.

    Brooke Gordon argued her husband was worth more than he said.
    According to court filings, appraisals showed the value of the race
    teams at five times what Jeff Gordon reported in affidavits.

    "The settlement recognizes what we contended was Mr. Gordon's net
    worth as opposed to what he contended it was," Young said.

    Their divorce was set for a six-day trial in October until a settlement
    was reached after a 12-hour, court-ordered mediation session.

    I'm surprised she settled for so little. Last I heard, she was trying to get her hands on a lot more than that. I'm glad it's over. I never liked her anyway.

    Go for it, joeguy! Just learn from Jeff's mistake and make sure you get her to sign a pre-nup first!

    she can go for you Joe, and have me as a sidedish. Well now lets see how Jeffy handles the rest of the season now that this is settled.

    At first I was walking around calling her a gold-digger when I first heard they were getting a divorce.

    But my husband told me that infidelity on his end was the reason for the divorce and was defending her.

    I have no idea if it's true or not, but if that is the case, I think he is the one that got off lucky.

    Bravo, there are lots of rumors going around as to the "marital infedelity" meaning. No one knows exactly what it's about. Everything has been speculated from another woman to another man.

    *Fans self at thought if Ili and Joe in same room*
    Maybe she will go out and buy herself a nice real guy now, she can afford it.
    Back when the suite was filed it said Marital something or other . Weird wording. Anyway, he has been seen with several other track bunnies so hasn't learned his lesson

    Yesterday in English, Leah got married to Riley, had four kids, and then Riley cheated on her with Seville and she got $10 million, but she also got the kids, so Riley thinks he won.

    Not sure why I wanted to share that, maybe even people's marriages that come as a result of boredom end with cheating.

    Now here's a real life "For Love or the Money" story... they should have had cameras follwing these two along from day one!! So in a few years marriage was she ever in love with him or was she in it for the $$$?
    She goes from a Ms. Winston girl to a multi-millionaire- not bad for a poor central florida trailer park girl... her momma should be proud!!
    I am also wondering who is really happy with the settlement, even though they both are proclaiming to be thrilled with the judgement? i know she was hoping to get a lot more then 15 million- she was asking for everything- 1/2 the $$$, houses, boats, future earnings, cooks, butlers, maids, etc...

    maybe there is some truth to his infidelity rumor, a rumor that could come out soon- since the settlement is over... that's what i am wondering- did he really bang Brittney Spears?? all i know is something HUGE happened- he cheated- but the 15 million dollar question, is with whom??
