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.
