It has been a messy split for Michael Douglas and his ex, Diandra Douglas, even though they split quite a few years ago.
In the divorce, it was said that Diandra would be getting a portion of what Michael has earned in movies he did during their marriage.
That's the reason why Michael can't figure out why she thinks she deserves any amount from one of his latest movies, Wall Street 2, because it wasn't even on the horizon when they split.
But she is relentless in thinking she does, so, she has asked the courts to reconsider the case that they threw out because they said it should be brought up in California.
Here's a bit of what went on inside the courtroom:
With Diandra Douglas looking on, the actor's lawyer noted his recent fight with throat cancer and said his ex "should be ashamed of herself" for seeking more money when she's gotten more than $51 million from him in the divorce and her stake in some earnings afterward. Her lawyers, meanwhile, mentioned his recent purchase of a $5 million-plus home near New York and his children's private schools.
We're not exactly sure what him buying himself a house and putting his kids through school has to do with him owing her money he has earned. Just as confused as he is!
It'll be inneresting to see if the judge ends up letting this go to court, but we don't really see why they would.
Do U think it should?
