MSNBC“s “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough earns $99,038 PER WEEK from his show — this according to divorce docs obtained by our sources — but the crazier part … his soon-to-be ex-wife will only see a tiny fraction of it.
We broke the story … the 50-year-old former Florida congressman quietly filed for divorce from his wife of 12 years Susan Waren back in September 2012. They have 2 minor kids (a 10-year-old and a 5-year-old).
But according to the divorce docs, Joe”s pretty much making off like a bandit. For starters, the divorce docs state Joe will NOT be paying child support, and what his alimony amounts to is a morsel of his enormous salary.
According to the docs, Joe will fork over $30,000 per month for 5 years, then $25,000 per month for 2 years. Joe also gave her a lump sum of $150k, and he”s paying the mortgage on their Connecticut home, and the kids” schooling.
Couple of interesting clauses in the divorce papers — Susan “acknowledges” Joe was faithful, devoted, and committed.” A sentence perhaps intended to quiet allegations Joe was cheating.
Also, if Joe and Susan are both in the Conn. home there are house rules: Neither can enter the others bedroom barring a kid related emergency, and after 7 PM they”re banned from the other”s side of the house.
Very “War of the Roses.”
