Adrienne Maloof & Paul Nassif

Money Truce

in Divorce

11/9/2012 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1108_maloof_nassif_gettyAdrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif agreed ... they would not try to screw the other out of money in their divorce ... striking a deal that essentially leaves both parties with whatever they came into the marriage with ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... the 'Real Housewives' stars settled their divorce this morning after a breakup that got downright nasty.

Sources tell us the agreement was reached after both families stepped in to help mediate ... with Paul's brother, Chris Nassif, and Adrienne's brother, Joe Maloof leading the charge.

Of course, money COULD have been a major issue ... since they're both incredibly wealthy. But sources close to the former couple tell us the two hammered out a deal that will allow them to each keep the assets they brought into the union ... and split everything else they acquired during the marriage right down the middle.

As for custody of the couple's 3 sons ... we're told Adrienne and Paul agreed to a deal that is "very close to 50/50 custody."

One source close to the couple tells us, "They're both happy ... and they just want to move on with their lives."

Of course she is agreeing to everything since she is probably scared s*itless that he would sue her for defamation after those bogus abuse photos her loser chef took. Now she's playing nice after saying he was a wife and child abuser. Dumb, ugly bitch!

While I do understand that reality has nothing to do with Reality TV, I can’t help feel a great deal of sympathy for Paul. This wife spoke to her husband in the most demeaning way, only equal to how Kate Gossline spoke to her (creepy) husband. Any wife (I am a woman) who would degrade and humiliate her husband publicly is pathetic – and vice-versa. She was a shrew on the show, and I am happy he is free from her. My prayers are with the poor kids.

She's baaaack    

It's a good thing for them that they have money because they sure aren't going to get by on their looks. Those are two nasty looking human specimens.

Presumably Adrienne got custody of Chef Bernie, the sniveling girl who accused Paul of causing Adrienne's psoriasis!

This just proves her claims that he abused their children were lies. I personally think Bernie is the one leaking all the stories about Adrienne that she accused Lisa of leaking.

Adrienne tried to get Brandy to lie about Lisa on twitter She wanted Brandy to say she knew Lisa was selling stories to press. And when Brandy didn't want to do that and said that wasn't the truth. Adrienne turned on Brandy. Adrienne had her chef post all those pictures. She is a wackado! She could beat the crap out of Paul, she is such a control feak no way did he hit her, it was more likely the other way around. I feel sorry for Paul he put up with her lying crap for way to many years.
