Although both of them are multimillionaires, they had no prenup, which means everything earned during their marriage has to be split 50/50 under California’s property division law. An insider said:
Gavin is now demanding more than half of her fortune. He has complained that while Gwen was launching her successful clothing line, continuing her music career, and expanding her brand by appearing as a judge on The Voice, he stayed home with their sons.”
OMG. If this is true, then I’m sure things are getting pretty bad between Gwen and Gavin.
The insider also claimed:
Gavin is even threatening to go to trial if he isn’t given a chunk of Gwen’s fortune. And he will ask for child and spousal support as well.
“Gwen is furious because at the outset of the divorce, Gavin said he wouldn’t go after her money. She is just kicking herself for not getting a prenup.”
Yeah, hindsight is always 20/20, isn’t it? While Gwen is said to be worth $120 million, Gavin is said to be worth $20 million. That’s quite a discrepancy, although I’m not sure it’s because Gavin has been playing Mr. Mom. I’m sure they have nannies! A source said:
Gwen isn’t just going to hand over a huge check to Gavin…She has worked very hard for her money and won’t go down without a fight!”
While I doubt Gavin would get more than half of Gwen’s fortune, given how long they’ve been married and the fact that most of the money was earned after their marriage, I suspect Gwen will be writing a sizable check. She should speak to Giada De Laurentiis: Giada kept the key stuff (her brand) to protect her future earning potential at the very least.
I have to say, I don’t WANT to believe this one. I loved Gwen and Gavin and their family; it’s too bad they’ve decided to divorce. I’d hoped they were at least keeping things amicable. Yet money can twist everything…
