The Cost of Love: Tiger Edition- 7 Figures or Better…

December 4, 2009 1 comment

I really didn’t want to continue with this Tiger Woods drama but now that his wife is fighting back I had to post this.

Now that Tiger Woods has come clean about his “transgressions,” we wonder what’s next for his marriage? According to msnbc.com, sources are saying that for now, wife Elin Nordegren, who is often a fixture on the 18th green at golf tournaments, is standing by her man and wants her pre-nup revised.

Get a load of what she wants:

The Daily Beast has learned exclusively that the beleaguered golfer is negotiating an immediate $5 million payout to his wife—and revising her prenup to give her as much as $55 million more to stay with him two more years.

“The links legend’s spouse is reportedly being paid a hefty seven-figure amount—immediately transferred [sic] into an account she alone controls—to stick with her husband,” Zwecker wrote. “At this point, the couple needed to remain married for 10 years in order for Woods’ wife to collect a splitsville settlement of $20 million. I’m being told that time frame has been shortened—and the dollar amount increased ‘substantially.’”

The lawyer familiar with the couple’s negotiations told The Daily Beast that Tiger also has agreed to shorten the original prenup to seven years from the date of marriage, meaning it will vest in another two.

Chris Brown Is Upset That Tiger’s Wife Got Away With Beating Him

December 4, 2009 1 comment

Chris Brown thinks that the world is one-sided because Tiger’s case was closed so quickly while he had his drag on. Maybe he thinks Tiger’s wife should’ve been investigated for domestic abuse too and have the negative media attention that he’s been getting. I guess he may have a point but that doesn’t excuse his behavior. Here’s what he Tweeted after the Tiger case was pronounced over.

Rihanna: Lost Interview… Proof of Violent History

November 10, 2009 Leave a comment

Rihanna’s 20/20 interview was arguably the most entertaining thing I’ve seen on television in 8 months. I think the world will agree w/ because as ABC took the ratings crown for the 10pm hour as an amazing 8.1 million people tuned in to watch Rihanna tell her side of the story.  I was mesmerized by her story as she said. “No. Did not hit him”.  Many opinions have been formed about the interview, but last night while looking at some hot pics of Mila Kunis I stumbled on to a Rihanna interview that many have forgotten about.

In an interview w/ Complex Rihanna reveals

Did you see 300?
Rihanna: [Deadly serious.] 300 is one of the best movies I have ever seen. The choreography, the fighting, the costumes, the production—phenomenal. I
make everybody watch it.
So you didn’t think it was too violent.
Rihanna:
Oh, not at all. That was the
good part. I’m the oldest child with two brothers. We talk all the time now, but we used to fight—and when I say “fight,” I don’t mean arguments, I mean physically fight.
Who won?
Rihanna: I hit the older one in his face with a glass bottle.
Bokkle dem! Whoa. Remind me not to piss you off.
Rihanna: Yeah, my mom was pretty upset.

I’m just saying. I totally agree w/ Rihanna when she said nothing gives a man the right to hit a woman. Nothing in the world. I just hope both Chris and Rihanna can move on w’ their lives and be as successful as the Almighty will allow them to be.
