Joe Scarborough Divorce

He Earns $99,000 A WEEK

EXCLUSIVE

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough earns $99,038 PER WEEK from his show -- this according to divorce docs obtained by TMZ -- but the crazier part ... his soon-to-be ex-wife will only see a tiny fraction of it.

We broke the story ... the 50-year-old former Florida congressman quietly filed for divorce from his wife of 12 years Susan Waren back in September 2012. They have 2 minor kids (a 10-year-old and a 5-year-old). 

But according to the divorce docs, Joe's pretty much making off like a bandit. For starters, the divorce docs state Joe will NOT be paying child support, and what his alimony amounts to is a morsel of his enormous salary.

According to the docs, Joe will fork over $30,000 per month for 5 years, then $25,000 per month for 2 years. Joe also gave her a lump sum of $150k, and he's paying the mortgage on their Connecticut home, and for the kids' schooling.

They share joint legal custody ... and are still living together with the kids.

Couple of interesting clauses in the divorce papers -- Susan "acknowledges" Joe was faithful, devoted, and committed." A sentence perhaps intended to quiet allegations Joe was cheating.

Also, when Joe and Susan are both in the Conn. home there are some house rules: Neither can enter the others bedroom, barring a kid related emergency ... and after 7 PM they're each banned from the others side of the house.

Very "War of the Roses."

She will get over 2.5 million dollars in all for squirting out a couple kids. This rag story makes it sound like she will barely be able to survive.... What does she do for a living besides breed at middle age ?

However will she be able to survive on such a meager wage... oh the humanity.
You can only afford a 2m$ home and only 2 Tesla cars with that. Where are all the women's right organizations when you need them!

How is it crazy that she will only see a tiny fraction? Does she have a job or the ability to work? Whatever happened to women earning their own salary....marriage isn't an insurance policy for guaranteed income if the husband starts making a lot of money or wins the lottery.
