Madonna forking over $60 mil to Guy Ritchie

Guy Ritchie is reportedly going to walk away from his marriage to Madonna with $60 million along with their British retreat Ashcombe and the Punchbowl pub (which he owned to begin with.) But Skeletor Barbie is going nuclear and claiming that Guy is a gold-digger, according to The Sun:

Queen of Pop Madonna, who famously follows the mystical Jewish religion Kabbalah, told a friend: “I’m totally devastated that Guy’s turned out to be such a gold-digger.
“I thought we’d been on a spiritual journey together for the past ten years — but obviously I was wrong. He’s just after my money. I’ve worked my ass off for the last 30 years to get what I have, and now this gold-digger wants to take it from me.
“Kabbalah philosophy teaches that you don’t take what you haven’t earned. Well that’s exactly what Guy is doing. He hasn’t earned a penny of it, yet wants to take, take, take. He keeps upping his demands — he just wants more, and more, and more from me. It’s unbelievable.”

On the flip side, sources for Guy Ritchie say he’s merely recouping his financial losses and could’ve taken her to the cleaners:

Guy’s camp are insisting he is NOT a gold-digger — pointing out that, had he wanted, he could have got more than five times the figure involved. They put that sum at around $60million of property — equivalent to about £34.5million. But Madonna’s camp disputes the figure — insisting her husband is after much more than that.
One source added: “The divorce is not a done deal yet. Guy will definitely keep Ashcombe and he gets the cash equivalent of all their London properties and the Punchbowl pub, which was always his anyway.

Does anyone remember Swept Away the movie Guy directed starring Madonna? If you do, first off, my apologies. Second, that thing was a gaping head wound to Guy Ritchie’s career and, frankly, I’m surprised he’s legally allowed near a film camera. Which is why, in the court of public opinion, I doubt anyone’s going to begrudge the man a dime that he gets from Madonna. I mean, look what she turned into! I almost feel like Guy Ritchie deserves half of my money for bedding that thing.
