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?
