Michael Douglas' Ex Speaks Up, Explains Why She Went After So Much $$$ In Divorce

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?

Former Enron CEO's Son Found Dead In Dorm Room

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersR.I.P.Sad Sad

former enron ceo sun found dead

First, Bernie Madoff's son committed suicide back in December, and now former Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling's son John Taylor has been found dead in his dorm room.

So sad and disturbing to see the sons of these imprisoned "businessmen" going down this road.

No word yet on whether Skilling's death was related to suicide, foul play, or something else, but students have said that the former CEO's son was "despondent over a recent breakup with his girlfriend." Also, multiple prescription drug bottles were nearby the body, which makes suicide seem like a strong possibility.

Guess we'll see what they find out after the toxicology reports come back.

Our thoughts are with Jeffrey Skilling and his family during this difficult time.

ruth madoff blames bernie for sons suicide

What a terrible situation!

Ruth Madoff is reportedly blaming her husband, Bernie, for their son Mark's suicide.

Here's what Madoff biographer Jerry Oppenheimer had to say about it on The Today Show:

"She claims that Bernie Madoff has blood on his hands. She calls him an SOB … that he's totally ruined his family, and the death of their son was the final straw."

Oppenheimer has also said that Ruth feels that Mark "would not have died if it weren't for what [Bernie] had done."

And more from Oppenheimer:

"Her wrath is aimed at her husband."

We definitely feel for Ruth! Such an awful tragedy!

Bernie Madoff's Son Commits Suicide

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad


Mark Madoff, the son of convicted Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff, who is currently serving a 150-year prison sentence, was found dead in his Manhattan apartment early Saturday morning of an apparent suicide.

Madoff was found hanging from a ceiling pipe with a dog leash around his neck. His father-in-law discovered his body.

His two-year-old child was also allegedly asleep in a nearby bedroom at the time, unharmed.

It is unknown whether or not he left a suicide note, however prior to his death, Madoff emailed his wife in Florida with "words to the effect that someone should check on his son."

His death occurred on the second anniversary of his father's arrest.

Wow. So sad.
