The Los Angeles County divorce judgment for Paypal founder, Elon Musk and his ex-wife, Talulah Riley has been finalized. The parties were married for less than 1 year. They do not have any minor children together.
According to the Judgment, Riley will be receiving a $4.2 million settlement. Musk is worth about $680 million.
The $4.2 million will be disbursed to Riley over a 9-year span. Riley received $500,000 up front and an additional $900,000 after the judgement documentswere signed.
Additionally, Talulah will receive $700,000 on the 1-year anniversary of the signing of the judgement, followed by a $280,000 annual payment for years 2 through 8. During the ninth anniversary, Talulah will receive a final payment of $140,000.
From an Orange County divorce lawyer’s perspective, I’m assuming these two had a prenuptial agreement in place to disburse their assets accordingly. If you own substantial separate property assets, its a good idea to enter into a prenuptial agreement prior to marriage. That way, in the event of an unfortunate divorce, the disposition of your assets have already been predetermined.
