Cirque Du Soleil Founder Is Being Sued By Babymomma - It's Getting Ugly In Court!

| Filed under: CanadialandLegal MattersLove Line


Oh, how we love it!

Guy Laliberté - founder of the world famous and very very successful Cirque Du Soleil - is being sued by his former partner (They were never married!) for a $50 million lump sum settlement and $56,000 a month in support.

Them's some expensive demands!

Laliberté met the woman when she was 17 on a beach in Brazil, then moved to Quebec and had 3 kids together. He left her in 2002 after 10 years together.

The woman already receives $35,000 a month in support, but she claims to be fighting on behalf of single mothers in Quebec, where the laws protecting single mothers from common-law relationships are notably weaker than in other places.

She's SUCH a crusader!

The woman's lawyers claim she cannot afford the lifestyle she and her children enjoyed during her relationship with Laliberté.

Had the couple been legally married, Quebec law would entitle the woman to a large portion of the wealth earned during the couple's marriage. But, since Laliberté and the woman were never married, she's entitled to nothing.

If the case is won, its outcome could radically alter common-law regulations, which could prove beneficial to single parents who have made sacrifices for their partners and their kids.

    These ppl are ridiculous… They can't afford the lifestyle they once lived. Tell that to the ppl who have no home or food to put on the table. Pathetic, truely pathetic.

  11. 11

    Wow I'm really surprised the guy is Guy Laliberté.
    In the local news they kept his identity a secret.

  12. 12

    Sorry, no sympathy here. STOP HAVING ILLEGITIMATE CHILDREN. I hate it when people who shack up want the same rights as people who made it legal by getting married. Sorry…. This is exactly why I don't understand why it has become the NORM to have kids without marriage… YOUR FAULT

  13. 13

    Hey! Not only has she 35000$ a month pension for the kids, she also has, in her name, a more then 2 M $ house, and numerous domestics plus expenses! She is complaining that she is unable to take a private plane with her kids to travel! Not too many women in Québec agrees with her. She is our own Heather Mills, without the wedding!!! She is also suing him in Brazil for half his fortune and half the profit of the Cirque du Soleil, so they said on the news channel. a real gold digger.

    …there's a publication ban on that trial!

    Re: MexicanTaco

    I know! Cyberpresse keeps churning out articles about how difficult it is to keep the identities under wrap, because of the Internet.

    Re: neigeb – Wow that is ridiculous…

  17. 17

    Re: neigeb

    yeah and her milion dollar legal expenses are being paid by another sugar daddy… ohhhh the hard life of the rich and famous…..
    skiuze me people, I gotta go count the pennies in my piggy bank to see if I have enough to buy milk and sugar….

    like crap that she is fighting for single mothers. the lesson for women is, don't push the puppies out until you have that piece of paper and when a wealthy person is involved, make sure a prenup is also near and dear with your lawyer. One pregnancy might be an 'accident' but three are not.

  19. 19

    I've met Guy Laliberté and his new wife and the five kids he has with her. I'm not sure he's the "guy" in the story because he does not deserve that a crazy woman wants to "ruin" him.

    I'm from Montreal and my boyfriend and I are planning on having kids. I'm the one who makes all the money and I hope the girl doesn't get anything because I don't want to be stuck with a scenario like this if my boyfriend and I ever split up.

    This story is just ridiculous!

  20. bleh! says – reply to this


    OH SHIT! The local news has been feverishly trying to keep the guy's name under wraps.


  21. 21

    How about get married? Why is it so hard? You were never married, you don't get anything. It's pretty simple. People need to stop being stupid.

  22. 22

    haha, why by the cown when you can get the milk for free.

  23. 23

    Re: harrybalsac – i've seen it and it fabulous.

  24. 24

    that circus sucks and is for retards

  25. 25

    Fuck this bitch. I get about ONE PERCENT of 35k for my son from my ex husband! Yes, I would love more…but who in the HELL needs 35k a MONTH to raise a child?! SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY GOLD DIGGER!

  26. 26

    Well for one, Quebec unlike the rest of Canada runs under civic law and not common-law as that was one of the terms settled after the British won. Which means that their court system (unless criminal of course) does not run on precedence as our common law system does, it relies on statue and rules already in place. Therefore this will pretty much be an open and shut case.

  27. 27

    Women in Quebec already get huge settlements in separation and divorce cases and they can continue to go after their ex for years. My uncle married this complete douche bag and unfortunately had two children with her. She did NOTHING while they were married. She stayed at home, watched TV, hardly raised the kids, never cleaned the house or made dinner and never wanted to go back to work. He supported her lazy ass and would run home after work to cook, clean and take care of the kids. She decided to leave him two years ago, after 20 years, for another man and she got the house, a huge financial sum every month and he had to pay for her to go back to school even though she was dating someone else. Now she lives in the house with the two kids (who don't talk to my uncle) and the new boyfriend. She's just recently gone after him for more money per month and she got it. My uncle now lives in a bachelor suite in Montreal and is completely broke because almost his entire weekly payday goes to her. I mean he's a douche as well for having put up with her crazy ass for 20 years, but still, most women in Quebec can milk the shit out of their divorces.

    Move on lady. If you never "put a ring on it" during your time with him, just move on. It is not a law that you are supposed to forever live like you once did. That is a fantasy. I am a single mother and I walked away, glad to move on.

  29. 29

    Vancouverite is correct, women in Québec have a lot of rights, it is men who need more rights in this province. Common sense by a jury of peers should be used in all cases, for men and women, especially where children are concerned. A mother merely has to hint of child abuse and the father has no more rights for years. It's sad. Of course, there are still women who get the short end of the stick, the system is not perfect.

    And yes, the identity of the people is supposed to be confidential, thanks Perez!

    I live in Montreal, and during my divorce I could have walked away with 10x more but it would have been unfair, I left with what I put in (no kids).

  30. 30

    Lots of folks in Quebec don't get married - they live together as if they are married, have kids, buy houses, but aren't married. That seems to be the trend in France as well. So please people - let others live their lives as they see fit, not governed by whatever your imaginary god has decreed. Long Live the Flying Spaghetti Monster!

  32. 32

    Thanks Perez for revealing his identity. I live in Québec and in the news they keep his identity secret. I am happy to know who it is! :)

  33. 33

    Apparently he is or was on cocaine…
    Thats what the woman said in court!
    The Quebec media is not allowed to say that the man who is sued is Guy Laliberté

  34. 34

    Hi! I'm from Montreal. The trial is on. We have a non publication name about this case. I just found out on Perez who it was. She shoul just shut up and take the generous offer she's getting right now. She's lucky to have it. We gets more in a month that me and my husband get in over a year!!! She sucks!!!

  35. 35

    I'm from montreal, she's such a golddigger since in the $35,000 monthly alimony for her kids, a hidden part is actually for the ex-partner. He's already paying school tuition, chauffeurs and a fancy house in the richest neighborhood of montreal for her and the kids.
    Guy Laliberté came from nothing and built Cirque du Soleil on his own, she has nothing to do in it, he deserves the money she clearly doesn't. She should get a job like anybody else!

  36. 36

    all you need is love

  37. 37

    THEY seem to put an awful high price on that slot of theirs?

  38. 38

    bad perez, theres a publication ban on this in Quebec because of the kids. I was wondering who the poppa was. lol
    We have been hearing about the case for about a week, but no idea who the dad was

  39. 39

    Thank you for revealing the identity of the man in this case, making a lot a noise in Montréal. This woman is unreasonable, she lives like a queen plus she has a man paying her legal expenses. I THOUGHT WE HAD COME A LONG WAY BABY !!! There will always be leeches. Go back to Brazil if you don't like the laws in Québec. Those Brazilian women are dangerous, think of Gisele the ugly, whatever his name should thing long and hard before marrying her.

  40. 40

    She wants $56 000 a month in support?
    Go get a job bitch like the rest of us!

  41. 41


    I hope she wins, the legal precedent that would be set by this case would help so many single mothers.

  42. Brice says – reply to this


    you can help Gut on facebook…pretty nasty

  43. 43

    that guy lives in my town!
    st-bruno, quebec

  44. 44

    No, it would not help any women. She is not in need!!! She is richer then most doctor or entrepreneur in Canada. It is not the case to involve the constitution in, she is fucking crazy!!! The bitch just want to live like a princess (she already is). She sais that everybody in Brazil lives like that, then go back there. She is not intelligent enough to get that all the domestic that she had back there were not living like her. She is just a spoiled brat, she should go back to daddy, oups, he told her to stay where she was, if she would leave Brazil for Canada. she is fucked.

  45. 45

    Perez…you do realize this was supposed to be a confidential matter in Quebec with respect to privacy laws…you kind of defied the purpose a bit there…

  46. 46

    Normally i am a huge supported in womens rights and aim for Women to be victorious in everything they do. But this is just plain greedy. 35, 000 a month is a lot of cash to get to support you and your kids, most people don't even make that in a year and you're getting it for doing nothing. Its alot of change to me because i have no money and now no job anymore thanks tot he economy, so when i see one person being this damn selfish in today's bad economic world i want to rip her hair out and drill some sense into her, be happy with what you have because most of us have NOTHING!

  47. 47

    I read the story in the Montreal Gazette (no names being published) and the word "gold-digger" immediately sprung to mind. Now that I know that its Guy Laliberté, I hope she takes him to the cleaners. He's a turd. His Cirque has ripped off and exploited artists for years. Also, in the early 90's the German magazine Stern published a photo of him eating some random chic's vayjay on a yacht. Find it!!!

  48. 48

    Re: The Vicar – Is it possible that your hate of Guy Laliberté is based on racism, are you a francophobe perhaps ? Jealous of Mr. Laliberté's many successes all over the world and he's a French Canadian, damn it ! If you read the Montréal Gazette I am not surprised at your envy and racism, that dirty rag specializes in French-Canadian bashing. Go to hell hater.

  49. 49

    This is hilarious - the papers in quebec won't name who the woman and the man are - but the similarities are, well, THE SAME! Wow, this is supposed to be confidential!

  50. 50

    Good for her - common-law couples deserve the same rights as those who are married, especially those who are parents! check out my comments on the Montreal Gazette, signed under the name Kiki

  51. 51

    She is NOT "entitled to nothing." She gets a monthly allowance and got a $2 million dollar house. She is suing for half of his fortune which is estimated at over $1 billion. I'm sorry but you should get all the facts before commenting on an issue like this. There was a video on you tube (which has been removed) stating all of her demands. Also she's suing him in Canada AND in Brazil, her home country. Talk about a gold digger… :::vomit:::

  52. 52

    Re: The Vicar – Okay so wait.. You hate him because he gave oral sex to a woman? WOW.
    The chick is crazy, I can't believe she's complaining and making so much drama when she gets to keep a huge 2M$ house and gets 432,000$ a year for doing NOTHING! Plus she apparently found a new sugardaddy paying all her lawyers and shit. She'll probably rip him off too.. it makes me furious how fking spoiled some people are, especially in this economic climate.

  53. 53

    my moms pacient is the lawyer and she said tht the 50 million is only 1% of his wealth

  54. 54

    Sorry !! You can't disclose that information Perez !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Quebec's matrimonial laws forbid disclosing the parents' name of ANY matrimonial cases pending

  55. 55

    Then perhaps she needs to join all the other single parents in the financial struggles that they are faced with. That'll shut her up.

  56. 56

    WAIT WAIT WAIT ! Y'all just concentrating on the 35 K alimony payment. There's so much more than that. He paid the 2,5 million house she lives in, plus an extra 500 K to "redecorate". He pays a chauffeur, with the car of course, a gardener, a nanny, a private tutor to help with homework for the kids, a housekeeper… He pays EVERY expense the house may have, bills and everything. He pays the tuition and ANY EXTRAcurricular activity… He pays the bills for private doctors… AND ! the best of it all… he pays a yearly trip to a destination of her choice, anyplace she wants, with her three kids… AND HER MOTHER ! Above everything, he gives 36 K for the kids. Yeah because they're in such a need. I mean… COME ON !

    She only deserves to go back to Brazil and live in a favella.. let's see how long does she survive THERE with that lifestyle !

    Peace out.
