I never gave Russell Brand much thought before, but I really admire the fact that he chose not to profit from this short-lived marriage.

Tiger,tiger , are so stupid! maybe you deserve what you got?

I think  she did it for the publicity and her tv show?!

hmm... so you can buy love after all, can't you - to receive $2.8 million for every year Zeta Jones stays in marriage... doesn't sound like there is much love in there, just business

Fifty mill! Is that it...LOL..not bad for doing nothing for a few years! He is worth 800 mill so i guess she could have been more of a ****..?
Sep 15, 2012 8:15AM
Funny,he gets a million dollars and its talked about like its nothing.He took care of those kids ALOT better than she ever did.Maybe thats changed now but i wonder?

Bet her bank account is okay.She was an actress making moneybefore she met Tom.Just cause she cant get into his bank account(good for him) does not mean there is a house and possessions(cars,jewelry,etc) that she gets? 400,000 thousand a year! I amsure she can make do with what she has got!

I really felt sorry for Sandra a loyal lady I,m sure but nobody need,s a let down. I find her and I,m sure many more do as beautiful, she will find the right one.

Ya know its ALMOST like he did that on purpose? Making sure everybody knew about his sexcapades? Anybody agree with me?
Sep 18, 2012 6:52PM
Kind of makes you wonder - if Sandra had enough sense to put the clause in her conditions, why didn't she have the sense to realize this guy is a dog? (Love you, Sandra)
Sep 15, 2012 6:30AM
ok jeez while he's a dog he's not broke , his marketing profits are off the scale , clothing, jewelry bikes, etc, quit putting him on the busted/broke  list, I'd kill to be that solvent
Sep 15, 2012 8:24AM
Thats just wrong---15 mill for 9 months.No kids, no job,a no brainer...J Lo got ripped off!

Is Michael ouglas worth a ton of money and how? Sure he's done movies but didn't he get fleeced when he cheated on his last wife? ( claiming sexual addiction).

Madonna only had to give 76 - 92 million?  So what when you have 500 million it's not even a fifth of what she made.
