michael douglas ex speaks up

Michael Douglas' ex-wife Diandra Douglas hit him hard in their divorce, where she reportedly got $45 million from the actor.

Now, Diandra has spoken up about the divorce, explaining that she went after so much money because she got schemed by Bernie Madoff and Kenneth Starr.

Here's what she had to say about it:

"Because of the type of human being I aspire to be, if Starr & Company hadn't happened and Madoff hadn't, and if a lot of other things hadn't happened, to tell you the honest truth, I really believe I would have walked away."

And here's Diandra on Michael's recent battle with throat cancer:

"Michael didn't know he was ill, I didn't know he was ill, and the gods didn't know he was ill. I am not into going after sick people for things that don't belong to me."

And more from Diandra:

"I am not a greedy person by nature."

Hmm…would she have really just walked away if she hadn't been schemed by Madoff and Starr? Based on everything we've heard about this over time, we're not 100% convinced.

Do U think Michael Douglas' ex went for so much money ONLY because she got schemed? Would she have left him alone otherwise?

    This is TYPICAL of our society at the moment! No personal responsibility!
    SHE got scammed, not Michael. Why should he have to pay for HER mistake!
    If she had kept the money he gave her in the first place, instead of trying to be greedy and make more money from it, then she would have been set for life!
    She should not have spoken as now she not only looks a Bitch but a stupid one!!!

    Are you kidding me? Diandra personifies greed. Her 45 million wasn't enough because she squandered it on god knows what. This broad lacks reason and accountability. What a horrible, horrible person

    Probably wouldn't want to have lunch with her, but I think she was entitled to "go after" it.



  4. 4

    Shouldn't that be her problem not his it annoys me to no end when people go after money they haven't earned.



  5. 5

    i don't even know why she's trying to justify herself. if she has legal right to something, that's it.

    Gold Digger

    He was a sex addict while married to her. I think she caught him
    in bed with her best friend. Catherine has a stipulation in
    her pre nup if he cheats- she gets lots of money.
    He put her through hell. She earned it.

    If she is entitled to that amount, why not. I agree with several of the above posts. He was NOT a good husband or father. She earned it.

    Greed is part of her personality. If she had put more effort toward her son rather than toward her investments she would have won big. He wouldn't be in jail and so screwed up, but I guess she's the type of person who looks at success in $$ signs. Hopefully her son will be a richer person than her when he gets out of jail. Im not talking about financially richer, but richer in personality, decisions and growth.

    Michael is equally responsible in raising that boy. He threw his family out to dry and started running around, so, don't just blame Diandra for the son's problems. He should have stayed home with his family like his dad did.
    If D. is legally entitled to whatever she's supposed to get…then get it.
    Just because he's sick doesn't mean he isn't rich as hell.

    She put up with so much of his sh*t through the years - she deserves every penny!

    Re: Evey girl

    "Like his dad did"? Are you kidding me? His father was also a philanderer. Where do you think Michael learned it? They weren't closed until he was older.

    Re: Evey girl

    P.S. He's rich as Hell!
