Shane Mosley Wife Gets Championship Belts in Divorce

7/14/2011 11:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sugar Shane Mosley has been forced to give up 3 championship belts -- to his wife ... in his divorce!


TMZ has obtained Sugar Shane's divorce settlement documents and -- if you've been divorced -- we're betting his is a lot different.

The settlement provides that ex-wife Jin "shall maintain custody and control of three championship belts for each of the respective parties' three minor children."  Each of the kids get a belt when they turn 18.

And Jin will get half of Sugar Shane's cut of profits from videotapes and DVDs of his big fights, including bouts with Oscar De La Hoya, Miguel Cotto and Fernando Vargas.

Since the divorce was filed in California and community property rules apply, Jin gets half of Sugar Shane's fight purses during their marriage.  But luckily for Sugar, his big fight against Manny Pacquiao was held after the couple separated, so his $3 mil is his alone.

And get this ... the couple accumulated 854,410 American Express points during their marriage, and she gets half.   To put that in perspective, for Jin's 427,205 points, she can buy either an industrial generator or a 10-speed bike.

If he remarries then dies without a will saying who gets what, his wife at the time of death gets everything, and his kids with Jin get nothing. Unless the second wife, or whatever number she is, gives it to them. Even if he has a current will splitting things between his kids with Jin, he can change that when/if he remarries, or it could be contested. This ruling insure his kids get something of their Fathers no matter what either parent does in the future. People you need a prenup to secure your stuff. If s/he refuses to sign a prenup, do not sign a marriage license.. listen to your heart, because people f**k with your head.

Who is the idiot judge who awarded the belts to his wife? Over half of these stories leave out the judges name. Why do these stupid ass judges get a pass?

This is a cheap shot below the belt. He earned the belts and should be able to keep them and not be included in community property. If he choses to give it to his kids when he dies that should be his choice. She did this for spite and where it hurts. I can honestly say, if I was in her shoes I would not demand belts but rather money.
