Donald Trump is back in the singles game. Now the question is, how much is his freedom going to cost the virtuoso dealmaker?
A tearful Ivana Trump left court a single woman Tuesday after a judge, citing Trump's "cruel and inhuman treatment" of his wife, dissolved their 13-year marriage.That makes Trump, dubbed The Donald by Ivana, one of the most eligible bachelors around.
But with his financial empire crumbling, it's unclear how much that freedom will cost him - and how eligible he'll be after paying off.
"There are two parts to any marriage: One, are we married? And two, do I owe you any money? Today we've cleared the way for the real issue: division of property," said Jay Goldberg, Trump's lawyer.
The alleged other woman, Marla Maples, kept a low profile.
Mrs. Trump had nothing to say after the uncontested divorce was approved, but Donald issued a brief statement of good will.
"I wish Ivana the best. I have no doubt that she will do very well in the years to come," he said.
Whether Ivana, 41, will do well with proceeds of a marital agreement updated in 1987 or with a larger piece of the Trump pie remains to be seen. The marital pact calls for Ivana to receive $10 million and the couple's Connecticut estate, worth some $12 million.
