New York’s Hooker loving ex Governor Eliot Spitzer will be shelling out millions of dollars to his ex-wife and mother of his children. Silda Wall Spitzer, who stood by her husband as he was forced to resign from office after being caught paying over $4000.00 a night for sex, will receive a cash payout of 7.5 million.
The “postnuptial” agreement promises that the man known as “Client #9” will make sure his ex will live a lifetime of luxury in exchange for the years of humiliation she endured married to the disgraced politician.
In addition to a $7.5 million settlement dubbed a “lump sum” but payable over seven years, his ex-wife also gets $240,000 a year in maintenance for the rest of her life — with all the cash coming after Eliot pays the taxes.
The 31 page agreement states that Spitzer, who thought New Yorker’s were ready to forgive him for his past transgressions but lost last year’s race as City Comptroller, will “use his best efforts” to ensure that Silda gets to stay in their tony Fifth Avenue apartment at no cost to her, or else move her to “a replacement residence of similar size, location and quality.”
For the 54 year-old Spitzer, who has been dating political publicist Lis Smith, who is 23 years younger, the cash paid to Silda is a drop in the bucket. The disgraced politician has over $46 million dollars in real estate holdings and still has a reported income of 4.2 million a year.
