Why Shouldn't She Get Half?


First it was because Tracey Edmonds' kids hated Eddie Murphy and now the reason given for the split is that Tracey Edmonds wanted half of Eddie's money and wouldn't sign a pre-nup. Whatever. The reason they are not together is because someone figured out their wedding wasn't legal. BUT, for the sake of argument, lets suppose that Tracey already blew through her Babyface money and producing money and needed some more to get by, she deserves it.

If anyone has to spend five minutes with Eddie Murphy they deserve to get paid. I don't know how much she wanted or he was willing to pay, but it probably wasn't enough. I think this was actually a perfect situation for Tracey. She really wasn't ready to be with anyone after the whole Babyface fiasco, and this option would allow her some time with the kids, a chance to get a little freaky if she needed it, lots of alone time as Eddie has other friends, and some cash should she need it. Instead, this was a nightmare from the beginning. First there was the Mel B episode, then more Mel B with a little Gloria Allred thrown in. Then you had Mel B with Eddie's ex at lunch, and then all of a sudden Eddie got real quiet and real humble. No more denials or bad mouthing of Mel B after that huh? No matter what Tracey was there.

She was perfectly happy with the arrangement as long as there was not a real marriage, but if it was going to be real, she wanted more money. Eddie didn't want to pay more money, so the deal was done. What I think Tracey should do is make sure she didn't sign any confidentiality agreements and then write a book. Oh yes. A whole book. She should be able to get 200 pages out of the last year or so. Throw in some photos and use big type. People would love it.

*shrugs* Ok so when it comes down to it, Babyface's alimony paid more than the perks Eddie was offering. Marrying Eddie would forfit the alimony, dollars and cents(sense) plain and simple. She wasnt going to give that up unless Eddie gave her something more.

she could sue him for Loss of Consortium.
Her name is destroyed, both personally and professionally. She has lost future wages and lost future relationships.

Yeah, she thought she was moving up. Answering the question in the heading, half of what? They weren't married. You can't get half of someone's $$$ unless it involved a marriage during the time the $$$ was acquired.

And whats with this attitude EL? For someone who's been divorced supposedly six times, I'd expect you to not be a big fan of the idea that time spent with someone, if unpleasant, equals a monetary pay out....

loss of consortium only works in a couple of states, IIRC, but there IS such a thing as palimony, if she put her professional life on hold for him and lost a lot of $$$. but i think that's hard to prove.
what do i know? i'm asleep on my feet. *snores*

Judi said...

Palimony only applies if they've been together for many, many years. Loss of consortium is irrelevant - they were never married. They were bf and gf and now they're not. No one is entitled to anything from the other. Basta.

Eddie needs to homosexually hook up with Tom Cruise.

And that, Suckno, is the absolute grossest thing you've ever written here.
EEEEWWWWW!!!!!!!
