So says alleged Swedish countess Marie Douglas-David who’s divorcing her 67 year old husband George David 😦 Has this woman lost her mind?
What with all of the hoopla going on surrounding AIG and the recession and unemployment, we almost forgot that there are some people in New York with real problems. By which we mean really awesome problems. Such as Marie Douglas-David, a 36-year-old former investment banker and alleged Swedish countess who got carried away by her love for sexagenarian George David, the former United Technologies CEO, and accidentally signed a post-nuptial agreement in which she would get a mere $43 million dollars in the event of divorce.
Which, now that the marriage is over, she has come to realize is not nearly enough.
At the trial, which started yesterday, Douglas-David explained that what she actually needs is $100 million, plus $130,000 per month in alimony. This is really the bare minimum, because she has expenses, you see.
Douglas-David has filed court papers showing she has more than $53,800 in weekly expenses, including for maintaining a Park Avenue apartment and three residences in Sweden. Her weekly expenses also include $700 for limousine service, $4,500 for clothes, $1,000 for hair and skin treatments, $1,500 for restaurants and entertainment, and $8,000 for travel.
With millions of Americans unemployed and millions of Americans who live on less than $53,800 a year, this wench has alot of nerve to be squawking about her $53,800 weekly expenses 😦 I guess $43,000,000 million is chump change to her. Who in the world spends $1,500 a week on restaurants and entertainment and $4,500 a week for clothes? Ms. Douglas-David needs to cut back on her expenses.
