Default Jeff Gordon divorce getting more messy

Thursday, January 23

Associated Press


CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Lawyers for Jeff Gordon's wife have subpoenaed records from his competitors and NASCAR for use in their divorce case.

Geoff Smith, general manager of Roush Racing, said the team planned to file an order Friday to block Brooke Gordon's request in Wayne County Circuit Court in Michigan, where the company is headquartered.

Roush does not want to make public the individual contracts it has with its drivers and sponsors. Those deals are highly sensitive in NASCAR, where each car owner works out separate agreements with every individual.

Numbers are rarely talked about, preventing drivers from knowing how much their rivals receive in salary, percentage of winnings and souvenir sales.

Sponsor deals also are secret, lest a company should find out if it is paying extra for something another might get for free.

"Those are all the things that are the heart of our business," Smith said. "When we give it to Brooke, we're going to give it to Jeff. It's like having the Hendrick organization inside our team."


NASCAR spokesman Jim Hunter said the lawyers requested prize money information on Gordon, which it provided to the lawyers.

Gordon, a four-time Winston Cup champion, drives for Hendrick. Roush fields cars for Winston Cup drivers Mark Martin, Jeff Burton, Matt Kenseth, Kurt Busch and Greg Biffle.

Smith said other teams have also been asked to turn over contracts.

Brooke Gordon's lawyer, Jeff Fisher, did not immediately return a call to The Associated Press for comment.

Jeff Gordon has unsuccessfully tried to get a Florida judge to require his estranged wife and anyone involved in his divorce to sign a confidentiality agreement.

The request was denied and Jeff Gordon had to turn over papers in November that estimated his worth at about $48.8 million and that he earned more than $18 million in 2001.

Brooke Gordon filed for divorce in March, citing "marital misconduct." The racer has countersued, saying he should not have to equally split the couple's estate because he risked his life to collect it.

Jeff Gordon had to reveal his worth in an affidavit filed to comply with a Florida law that requires assets amassed during a marriage to be split evenly.

Brooke Gordon has asked for exclusive use of their Highland Beach, Fla., mansion, valued at $10.2 million, as well as alimony, two cars and periodic use of their boats and an airplane. She also wants her husband to continue to pay the salaries of their housekeepers, maintenance workers and chef.

What a racket. A whore doesn't even have to sell her ass on the street anymore... all she has to do is get her hooks into a rich man, and hire a grubby lawyer to grab half of everything he owns when she decides to dump him.

I knew Gordon was getting a divorce, but I didn't know why. Cheating, huh?

So much for all that "holier-than-thou", and "we're just good Christians" bullshit!

Figures...

When she gets behind the wheel and drives 500 miles at 220 mph at Daytona, with a few dozen other speed freaks trying to run her into a wall, then I'll say she's entitled to half his fortune.

The key words you wrote..."what is fair".

HALF is not fair. She was some 2-bit Ms. Tobacco (whatever)...what would she have gone on to become if she HADN'T married him? The world will never know...but do you think she would have lived HALF the life she did as Mrs. J. Gordon? I think not...

I agree that she is deserving for being his wife while he made himself into who he is today, but to say she "deserves" half is complete and utter bullshit.

She's good enough to take HALF the estate, but HE still has to cover the salaries of their "staff" (last line of the story)?!?! WTF is THAT?!?!

Why in the Hell can't they split THAT in half as well?!

That's what gets me, is the hypocrisy of the whole thing!!

I don't care what he did-- she doesn't deserve half-- here's another way for Jeff to play it:

Heartbroken Swede burns family assets
Thursday, January 23, 2003

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (Reuters) -- A Swedish man, desolate after his wife filed for divorce, converted the family's shares and mutual funds into cash and burned the money -- $81,000 in bank notes, a newspaper reported on Thursday.

"Bitterness is not uncommon in connection with divorces but it is almost unique that one of the spouses puts fire to all their wealth," Bengt Svensson, public prosecutor in the town of Jonkoping in southern Sweden, told the daily Aftonbladet.

Look at it this way guys.Jeff is a big time gambler,risks his life weekly for untold riches.He obviously didn't calculate the risk/reward ratio of this gamble.He took a shot at unbelievably bad odds and lost.One should always look at the worst possible scenario when laying huge odds.I am sure that most of you do in your daily wagering!
