Thierry Henry's 8M Pound Divorce Settlement

By Staff

Celebrity relationships are shorter than you think and wink. This time it is the divorce settlement of French football striker Thierry Henry and his wife Claire Merry. The relationship came to an end with with him paying her 8 million pounds as settlement.

Henry, 31, a 130,000 pounds-a-week former Arsenal striker, agreed to the amount with Merry, 27, to avoid the court battles, but for her, the settlement means she is getting 2 million pounds less.

Merry is said to have told friends that the amount is "close" to the 10million pounds she had been angling for."It was settled at the end of last week. Claire is delighted," the Sun quoted a friend of hers as saying.

"Neither her or Thierry wanted to go back to court as they are both now moving on with their lives. She is happy with the conclusion. She said it is close to the 10 million Pounds she wanted," the friend said.

Henry had hired law firm Mishcon de Reya, which represented Princess Diana and Heather Mills, and Merry had used Prince Charles and Sir Paul Mccartney's divorce lawyer Fiona Shackleton. "They are both just pleased it"s over," the friend added.

Well as long as your divorce makes you happy, surely it is worth the price you pay for it.
