"This isn’t the kind of thing he usually comments about." Well, does he usually pass out checks for $10M to women? I mean there is not a big frame of reference here for whether he usually comments on these things. "Yeah, he comments about them when they get to $20M, but if it is just $10M it is another day in the office."
I think Simon would probably be a pain in the ass to deal with, but I am too and I'm not handing out $10M checks. I think they genuinely loved each other and she just wanted more and he didn't. So, she split and he thanked her by giving her $10M.
