PayPal Founder Elon Musk

My Wife Gets JACK

SQUAT in the Divorce

EXCLUSIVE

0820-elon-musk-talulah-riley-article-gettyThe woman who's divorcing PayPal founder Elon Musk is getting $4.2 million in their divorce ... which is great ... until you remember he's reportedly worth $680 MILLION. 

TMZ has obtained the divorce docs filed in L.A. County Superior Court, in which actress Talulah Riley agreed to a settlement with her soon-to-be ex-husband ... whom she married in Sept. 2010 ... and then separated from in July 2011. 

According to the docs, Riley gets to keep her Cartier watch, her Gucci watch, some diamond jewelry and her Tesla Roadster.

The $4.2 million will be dished out over a 9-year span ... she got $500k up front ... and an additional $900k right after her lawyers signed the judgement documents.

Now, the fun begins ... because Talulah gets $700k on the 1-year anniversary of the signing of the judgement ... followed by a $280k annual payment for years 2 through 8. On the 9th anniversary, she gets a final payment of $140k.

According to the documents, the divorce will become official on September 27.

No word on how Elon plans to make the payments ... we're guessing it won't be through PayPal.

What a whore! She totally played him. 10 months of marriage for 4.2 Million Dollars = $420,00 per month! He could have gotten a lot of whores for $15,000 per day/night + jewelry. Hopefully Mr. Musk learns from this expensive mistake. He's better to rent, than own. LoL!

BS, she didn't get screwed! They were married for 10 whole months. That's a pretty sweet payout for less than a year!

That's a lot more than she would have earned as a streetwalker for ten months. Good gig.

How can anybody claim she was screwed in the deal. They were married a year and she walks away with 4.2 million? She had nothing to do with paypal so why should she get paypal money? You people are sick if you think her one year marriage should end with her getting hundreds of millions of dollars which she did nothing to earn.

Exactly what was her participation in the success of Paypal? Huh? Can't understand why people get paid large amounts of $$$ because they got married. Bet she managed to spend a lot of the money she didn't earn.

She was only with him for a few yrs. COME ON PEOPLE. Just because you marry someone doesn't give you a shoe in for all their money. If you spend your life raising your kids together. Put your career on hold for theirs. Put 20 yrs into a marriage then yes she should get more. She got too much IMO

So she 'earned' a little over $400K/month for the 10 months they were 'married'. I'd say he got screwed. Hope he got screwed during his marriage - a lot.......

Elon Musk is not the founder of Paypal anymore than Barack Obama is the former senator of whatever- He's president! Elon Musk is CEO of Tesla, SpaceX, and Solar City.

But what you guys seem to be missing is that Elon Musk is a paper billionaire but he's cash broke.

Yup she married him for love. Gold digging wench. Dudes like this need to meet a nice gal in a small town that doesn't know who he is. That way he can meet a life long partner. A pleasent surpise when she finds she's set for life. This gold digger got what she deserved. She shouldn't have gotten that much.
