This was just the custody agreement - what about her civil case against Mel? Can "audio" be used during this case? It appears that while she wouldn't be writing a book about these details they would still be made public through court records/transcripts, etc. And, there are those pesky legal fees from her 40+ attorneys - it could be that Mel is on the hook for much more than the 750K. $250K Now and $480K a year in child support, free housing and who knows what other misc expenses Mel picks up - Not a bad payday for the gold-digger! Mel's not the only winner in this.

Thank God she can't write a book. Which means, she will never be out promoting it and I should never have to see her face again!

Now, gold-digger, please just go away.

What do you know she finally learned how to shut up!! now that is a first! she did it without the lawyers around to make sure she did too.

I know this is better (for mel) then what she wanted but I still don't get why there has to be any settlement when you aren't married and hardly even lived together, but ok. Then she gets a bunch in child support too right?

$750,000 plus a free place to live for the next 16 years. Not bad for a woman who had no intention of ever lifting a finger to do an honest day's work in her life. What does Mel have to pay per month in child support and I'm sure Mel is required to provide a "safe, reliable car" to this ho so she can drive the kid around.

This woman has made a career out of soaking wealthy men for "child support". What a POS this woman is.
