Michael Douglas's Ex Can't Touch His Wall Street Money!

| Filed under: Legal Matters

Hey look! The system works! Fantastic!

We bet that Michael Douglas is feeling in tip-top shape today, as his lawyer phoned him this morning to let him know that his ex-wife's case to dip into his Wall Street sequel paycheck has just been dismissed.

Michael's ex, Diandra Douglas, claimed that she was entitled to the money as per their divorce agreement, but the judge in Manhattan told her that she'd pick the wrong venue for this kind of complaint (meaning it should be brought up in California) and dismissed the case completely. Michael's lawyer told the press that his client was "thrilled" by the news when she phone him and added that he "sounded great" when they spoke.

But the war may not be over. Diandra can take a things a step forward and appeal the dismissal or bring the case up in California.

Seems like a lot of effort and a lot of anguish to put a poor, sick man through, but it seems like some people will do just about anything for money. Shame!

Hope this brightened your spirits a bit, Michael! You've still got our best wishes for a speedy recovery!

    Poor, sick man??? Far from poor, and sick because he was a smoker. It's hard to have sympathy for someone who knew, with every puff they took, that cancer was a real possibility. As for his ex-wife - if she was part of the first movie, she very well might have legal rights to the second. In which case, this 'poor, sick man' could easily end this by doing the right thing.

    Hope this greedy butch will give up on her nasty action of asking for more money. Leave Michael alone Diandra (what an ugly name) and have some compassion for someone with cancer. Money won't bring you happiness, so beat it butch.

    Well, Perez do you know that Michael went into sex rehab while married to Diandra because he couldn't stop cheating on her. If this was Leann Rimes you would all for her ex getting the money. You'd also probably be glad about he cancer. But you only care about selective adulterers apparently.

    Re: TruthSquad – True and at the end of the day if it was included in the divorce agreement then he should pay up without delay. He has money.

    That's one greedy woman.



  6. 6

    Good! I think it's been long enough that she needs to move on.



  7. 7

    Why don't these women who marry rich guys get a job? They've been divorced for several years now so just move on with your life.



  8. 8

    Sure, he's old and sick NOW. But when he was healthy, he dumped his wife and lived 3,000 miles away from his children. Is it any wonder his sons turned to drugs?

    Yes, this case may be Diandra's revenge, but if she does pursue it, I say, "Good luck."

    I THINK HE WAS A PRICK IN THE MARRIAGE TO HER. MAYBE SHE WAS A BITCH TOO BUT I DON'T KNOW. I ALSO THINK THAT SHE HAS BALLS THE SIZE OF RHODE ISLAND TO BE ASKING FOR MONEY FOR A CURRENT SEQUEL LIKE SHE HAS THE RIGHTS TO THE MOVIE. IF I BOUGHT A CAR THREE YEARS AGO AND THE SAME STYLE CAR HAS A BIG ASS REBATE THIS YEAR COULD I SUE FOR THE REBATE MONEY? NO. WHY SHOULD SHE BE ABLE TO?

    What a bitch!!!!!!!!
    Legally you were only entitled to the proceeds from the first movie. If you wanted to be such a greedy bitch you would have to have had to stipulate that you wanted all proceeds from all characters he created prior to your divorce.
    Go get a job and leave the sick man alone!

    She can't touch his money? She just sued in the wrong court. Their divorce was probably in CA, so that's where she's gotta sue. POOR SICK MAN? This cancer has one of the best recoveries and it occurs because of DRINKING AND SMOKING! (I had a relative with this cancer, I KNOW>) Also, as one poster pointed out to you, MARIO, MICHAEL DOUGLAS SLEPT WITH EVERYTHING WITH A HOLE when he was married to Diandra-he treated her like SH*T. Yes, she is being vengeful, but nothing like a woman scorned. (over and over and over and over and over again). DIANDRA IS OUT FOR BLOOD.

    This is B.S., she has not been married to him for decades and this is a new movie.
    She should not get crap.
    Disgusting golddigger.

    She got plenty of money in the divorce. Sure he was an ass and cheated on her but he paid out millions to her because of it. I don't think she deserves anymore. If she ran through all that money already then let her get a job

    Diandra's pathetic! She didn't work during the marriage, and her only responsibility was raising their son, who is a drug addict, serving time in prison. She is not married to Michael Douglas any longer, and somehow thinks she still deserves 1/2 of his earnings! Diandra, get a job and get a life. He has a new family to take care of now!



  15. 15

    Worth noting: 1) There very likely was a clause in the divorce that she had a legal right to his earnings based on characters/ventures/etc. that were created during their marriage. 2) The case was brought up BEFORE Michael was diagnosed with cancer. 3) After he was diagnosed, she offered to to postpone the case. 4) Michael refused her offer.

    We can't possibly know what happened between these two over the duration of their long marriage. I would imagine, though, that it was a very sad and lonely time for both his wife and his child — not that that has any baring on the legalities of the matter.

    Who gives a crap how many times he cheated on her while they were married? What does that have to do with her having rights to his Wall Street 2 money? If she is still trying to get revenge for all of that, she really needs to get a freaking life! They have been divorced for 10 years. Yeah its awful he was a cheating bastard, but move on with your life.

    I think this lawsuit will be thrown out in CA too. She is using roundabout logic to justify trying to take his earnings from something she is not entitled to. Her lawyer is arguing the movie is a spinoff (which as Michael says, it is a sequel) and its basically the same movie yrs later, therefore she would be entitled. That doesn't make any sense seeing as how D doesn't have the right to the char itself, but we will see what happens.

    Re: For Every Sprinkle I Find… – You're an idiot, it was in the divorce agreement years ago that she would get money from the sequels if any . Get over yourself and stop idolizing deadbeats like Michael Douglas.

    Re: caroaber – GIVE ME A BREAK! This woman is crazy. And notice he has never bad mouthed her. Except to say that as a mother she was 'limited'. To blame Michael because his son chose to engage in criminal activity is unfair. And let's face it. The boy was home with 'mommy' most of the time.



  19. 19

    Re: Lizard7 – She doesn't need a job. She has been sitting on her lazy, no talent ass ever since she married Michael Douglas. Maybe Michael was just totally miserable with her. I don't see him cheating on his current wife.

    Most women are greedy. Especially the one that are know it alls. Most don't know what they have until they don't have it any more. If most would just shut their cockholsters they would be sooooo much better off, unless they are using it to holster a cock.
