I understand that in California, under certain circumstances you are entitled to half your spouses wealth but how much is too much? Mel Gibson’s divorce from wife Robyn, of 30 years was recently finalized resulting in her being entitled to 50 percent of his reported worth of $850 million. PEOPLE reports:
“Because the couple didn’t have a prenuptial agreement, Robyn, 55, was legally entitled to half of everything he earned during their marriage.
Among Gibson’s estimated assets: more than $600 million grossed by The Passion of the Christ alone; $100-plus million in real estate investments worldwide (he bought an island in Fiji for $15 million in 2005); and $75 million for film and TV projects for which Gibson, 55, executive produced.
It appears some of his wealth has already been transferred to Robyn, in particular two Malibu homes worth a combined $22.5 million. As for film residuals, Robyn is entitled to half of every future check Gibson receives for the rest of his life.”
