Madge agrees on whopping divorce payout

MADONNA will hand ex-husband GUY RITCHIE almost US$100 millionto end their marriage, her spokeswoman has confirmed.

Liz Rosenberg, Madonna's longtime representative, announced on Monday that a divorce settlement has been reached and director Ritchie will receive around US$92 million.

The figure includes the value of the English country house and London pub they shared.

Rosenberg said in a statement, "I'd assume it's one of the largest payouts ever in a divorce settlement."

She revealed that custody of the couple's sons ROCCO and DAVID has yet to be finalised - and dismissed rumours the former couple would spend Christmas together in London.

Madonna, 50 and 40-year-old Ritchie's split was announced in October ending months of speculation.

The superstar filed for divorce citing Ritchie's "unreasonable behaviour" and was granted a quickie preliminary split on 21 November.

She is now rumoured to be dating New York Yankees baseball star ALEX RODRIGUEZ.
