London (ANI): Guy Ritchie will get 60 million pounds in property and cash in his surprise settlement with Madonna, it has emerged. According to reports, the Brit director shall receive 20 million pounds in cash and properties worth multi-millions, including the couple's 1200-acre country estate and a posh London pub, in his deal with Madonna.
The money will be for covering their London properties - a 7million pounds family townhouse in Marylebone, a ten-bedroom, 6million pounds property next door and two mews cottages worth 2 million pounds each. All in all, the 40-year old will be entitled to a total value of 60 million pounds, which shall add to his existing 25 million pound fortune.
"The negotiations were relatively painless," the Sun quoted a source close to the couple, as saying. "Guy knew what he wanted and Madonna knew what she was keen to keep. There was a spell when Guy was in a mood to dig his heels in, but he decided this arrangement seemed reasonable and a long battle over money would make life unbearable," the source added.
The couple is expected to reach a compromise regarding their 3 kids while they both claimed the other to be stingy in money matters. Previously, Guy had been reportedly infuriated with Madonna's accusations thrown at him that he refused to dig into his own pocket for anything.
A source said: "He is furious - it's the complete opposite. It's Madonna who's mean with money, even though she has ten times as much cash as Guy. She rarely dips in her pocket for anything."
