Top 8 Bizarre Divorce Settlements: Part Two
5. Robert Lucas & Albert Einstein
Robert Lucas, winner of 1995 Economics Nobel Prize, had to share his winnings with his ex-wife. Worse still, Albert Einstein’s ex-wife, Mileva Maric, was rewarded all of his prize money from his 1921 win.
6. Dr Batista
A Long Island doctor made a bizarre request during his divorce proceedings; he wanted ex-wife, Dawnell, to either return the kidney he had given her or for her to pay him compensation of $1.5 million! Of course, he didn’t get either as a body organ is considered a gift!
7. The Hoff
In his 2008 divorce settlement with ex-wife, Pamela, David Hasslehoff was awarded full possession of both nickname “The Hoff” and catchphrase “Don’t Hassle the Hoff”.
8. Marvin Gaye
When Marvin Gaye couldn’t pay his ex-wife the maintenance she was awarded, it was decided that he would make a new record and give all the royalties from it to her. It might have been a good plan if the record hadn’t been such a flop!
