Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer is slated to give his ex-wife, Silda Wall Spitzer a $7.5-million lump-sum payment as well as spousal support of $240,000 per year until her death.
According to records obtained by Radar Online, the terms of a post-nuptial agreement dated September 4, 2013 call for Spitzer to pay Silda's "living expenses at a level sufficient to maintain her current ... marital standard of living."
She will also get to keep their apartment on Fifth Avenue ("or any replacement primary residences of similar size, location and quality"), receive a new car "no more than every five years" as well as money for "entertainment and activities" expenses, and up to $100,000 per year to donate to the charity of her choice.
This may sound like a very generous settlement, but Spitzer can well afford it: his personal net worth is estimated at $50 million, and his family's real estate empire has been estimated at $1 billion. The couple announced that their 26-year marriage had come to an end on December 24, 2013, and their divorce became final on February 5, 2014.
