Default MJ's divorce may cost him 168 million dollars.

Divorce dunks Michael Jordan for £80m - John Harlow, Los Angeles


As A basketball superstar, Michael Jordan was always in a league of his own. Now he is setting a record with his divorce as he prepares to pay his former wife an unprecedented settlement of more than $168m (£80m).

Last December, when Jordan, 44, and his wife Juanita, 48, split up, the athlete balked at signing the settlement. Insiders claim that negotiations have added £20m to the final deal.

The final severance package for Juanita Jordan, which includes the couple’s seven-acre estate in Chicago and custody of their three children, is expected to be agreed before the first anniversary of their last row – which was said to be about money.

Damn. Must be nice to just live in luxury until such time you decide you want a ton of cash and be on your own.

The divorce laws in this country are ridiculous.

She deserves a couple million and that's it. That is plenty to survive on and it just inspires other woman out there to be gold diggers.

I just don't get the law in this respect.

Someone explain to me why getting 170 million for being MJ's ex is fair?

Who cares if it's fair... it's the law, fair or not. It's MJ's fault (and his lawyer's) for not drawing up a pre-nupt.

How do ask your wife to be for a prenup?
I mean you might as well slap her in the face and tell her you don't trust her, when people are in love they rarely think about those decisions.

I suppose... but you'd think he'd get better advice from his legal counsel or agent or whoever. Rich, famous people should get prenupts....

I have to agree, my girlfriend has some cash, I would be a little offended if her cash meant more than I do.

Well he wasn't really that rich when he married her. Back when Jordan was a rookie NBA salaries were crap compared to now.
