Don Cornelius -- I Want to Die Alone

7/20/2009 9:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Don Cornelius Don Cornelius has made it clear he does not want to die ... married.

The "Soul Train" king was so desperate to get a divorce from his ex-wife Viktoria, that he actually put the following lines in divorce papers he submitted to L.A. County Superior Court:

"I am 72 years old. I have significant health issues. I want to finalize this divorce before I die."

The judge must have seen things Don's way -- the divorce was granted a couple of weeks ago.

Ah yes, divorce, from the Latin word meaning to rip out a man's genitals through his wallet.

The wife filed a false charge of domestic violence to get the guy out of the house. Man it's going to cost this guy millions.

The marriage must have ended really bad but I guess the man knows what he wants. On another note..looks like a hell of a slow news day TMZ! Where is the leaked tribute song LaToya made for Michael. It's all over the internet. What about Omer Bhatti asking for a DNA test because he wants to know if Michael Jackson is his father (they resemble each other and Omer is a singer/dancer) What about Christina Millian getting engaged to The Dream? What about Kobe Bryant's wife having her nipples exposed on the red carpet and throughout the whole ESPY awards show? What about the Janet Jackson Jernaine Dupri break up (not that I really care about this one)? What about MIscha Barton being held under a 5150 (Britney style)? Get to work TMZ. Your stories are lame today.

Domestic Violence
1) When a man's physical, sexual, emotional, economic, or psychological actions or threats of actions that influence a female family member or friend; 2) Whatever the man does that the woman doesn't like; 3) a wife's false accusation before or during a divorce to obtain an Order of Protection that will legally separate the husband from his children, home, and personal possessions.

When a husband learns his wife is having an affair or spending too much money, then demands that she stop is seen as abuse, therefore, it is considered domestic violence.

Ridiculous headline and typical of mindless bloggers

He wants to complete the divorce before he dies, not die alone. I hate spin. This request could mean he knows he has a short time left and wants to spend it qualitatively rather than arguing with his ex-wife. I'm sure a wealthy and famous man can find another woman or family member, etc., that would spend time with him so he's not alone.

You forgot to mention in your post, that in that group of laborers,were several BLACK MEN, and if you research a little more, you will find that a lot of BLACK people, males and females alike, in in political office, have also lost their jobs to affairs, and stealing.
