PayPal Founder Elon Musk

My Wife Gets JACK

SQUAT in the Divorce

8/21/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

If I married a woman for nine months to further some financial scheme of mine, I'd pick one who wasn't a 2/10. You know, for appearances. Chances these two had intimate relations are near zero, but if I were a wealthy homosexual I'd enjoy knowing that people envied me for my beard as well as my riches.

What a shock, someone affiliated with Paypal takes all the money and screws people over. Just like the real thing.

For being California this is tantamount to getting away with murder. The guy makes that much money in interest a day, easily...and to pay it out over 9 years? this guy is genious, or his lawyer is, or she is just dumb and I don't know HOW the state, who taxes and takes everything they can from people, let him get away with it, they always favor giving the woman everything in a

He's a jerk to begin with. He screwed over his first wife. He's swarrmy. How could he not be surprised that their marriage only lasted 1 year? He should just save his money and not get married. He had what...four kids with his first and left her for this actress.
