Guy Ritchie gets a 75 million dollar doggie bag

Guy Ritchie makes out like a bandit, he gets to take home a whopping $75 million pay out of Madonna's fortune in their divorce settlement. I believe that's a record for a man to receive so much from an ex-wife.

The payout includes the couple's country estate Ashcombe House in Wiltshire, as well as a cash lump sum thought to be at much as $53 million.

Liz Rosenberg (spokesperson) said the couple's west London pub -- the Punchbowl -- would also remain with Ritchie.

But U.K.-based entertainment lawyer Ambi Sitham said it made sense for Madonna to divest herself of her British property.

"She's got no interest in remaining here," Sitham said. "She's relocating and moving back to New York. It's money she's already paid out -- what is she going to do, try to sell the houses in a flagging market?"

Rosenberg adds that while the financial component of the settlement has been worked out, custodial arrangements for the couple's children — Rocco, 8, and David, 3 — have yet to be finalized.

Madonna's daughter from a previous relationship, Lourdes, 12, will stay with her mother.

A representative for Ritchie, 40, declined to comment.

Damn, I wish I married Madonna.
