Filed under: Legal Matters

Even with cancer, Michael Douglas still wants to show his ex-wife what's what!

His ex Diandra Luker offered to postpone their hearing today to fight over the money he will make from Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. Although, Michael insisted that the hearing go on as planned as he wants "to get this over with as soon as possible."

Or does he think he might garner some pity, seeing as he had a huge tumor in his throat and all?

How you going to take money from a man who has cancer? Seriously! (Good plan, Mike!)

Michael Douglas' Ex Wants His $$$$$ From Wall Street Sequel

Filed under: Film FlickersLegal Matters

And they've been divorced for almost a decade!

Michael Douglas' ex, Diandra, filed a lawsuit against her former husband earlier this month claiming that she is entitled to half of his earnings from Wall Street 2.

Diandra received about $45 million in the divorce, but she claims that part of the deal was that she was entitled to 50 percent of money from his films during their time together - including residuals, merchandising, ancillary rights and spinoffs.

"He doesn't want her to be an albatross around his neck forever," Michael's lawyer, Marilyn Chinitz, told the judge.

"It's the same character, the same title, just years later," added Diandra's attorney.

Chinitz is arguing that a sequel is not a spinoff and she has no right to the money.

"They're not the same thing," she said.

The judge did agree that there was a difference between a spinoff and sequel, but will not decide the issue until he figures out whether the case should be tried in NYC or sent to California, where the two divorced.

Messy.
