Ouch! And they never even made it official!
Chad Kroeger's former common-law partner of over six years, Marianna Goriuk, has taken the Nickelback frontman to court seeking $95,000 A MONTH in spousal support!
According to legal documents filed in the Vancouver Supreme Court, he's currently only paying her $10,000 a month, but Goriuk is arguing that given his $9.7 million a year income and "lavish lifestyle," she deserves to receive much more.
B.C. Supreme Court Associate Chief Justice Anne MacKenzie ultimately decided that the mess will have to go to trial, where they can assess the couple's "credibility and reliability" in their respective arguments, but for now, she ordered Kroeger to pay interim spousal support of $25,000 a month, which Goriuk previously declared to be her average budget!
“I find $10,000 a month to be unreasonable in all the circumstances. The parties’ lifestyle was extravagant. According to the claimant, they spent unlimited amounts to improve their properties. They ordered expensive food and wine, took private jets to Mexico and other places, hired helicopters at the last minute to fly in to Vancouver for the evening and travelled in limousines. He has a wide variety of assets, including corporations, trusts, partnerships, real property and other assets that are difficult to discern.”
She's going to ripping the 'nickels' right off of his 'back!'
LOLz! Look at that! Isn't it punny?!
Okay, cheesy jokes aside, this is one hell of a situation, especially given that they never even tied the knot!
Bet he wasn't expecting this to get so complicated!
Too bad! But hopefully they can find some sort of common ground and make this whole process as painless as possible!
What do U think?? Should Kroeger be paying that kind of spousal support??
