Author blogs her divorce from billionaire

justine-musk.jpgBel-Air author Justine Musk is blogging about the financial details of her divorce from Elon Musk, the Paypal co-founder who is behind the Tesla electric car company and Space X. It's a contentious divorce financially, which she admits — "The irony of this whole thing is that I don't want hundreds of millions of dollars. I think my ex-husband is brilliant and works like a demon and deserves his success and his wealth. But I also think -- after eight years of marriage and six kids (five surviving) -- that I am entitled to a fair settlement..." Her most recent post responds to criticism that she's a golddigger:

For those who want to know the extent of my golddigging, this is what I asked for, from my ex-husband and the father of my five children Elon Musk, who is a billionaire and likely to become one of the wealthiest men on the planet.

The house
alimony and child support
6 million cash
10 percent of his stock in Tesla
5 percent of his stock in SpaceX
(and he retains all voting rights)
and a Tesla Roadster (I really, really want one...)

Is that what I deserve? I don't know. Who exactly deserves that kind of wealth? But based on our life and history together, is that reasonable? I think so....

And with that, Musk writes, she's done blogging about him and their affairs. She is the author of the dark fantasies "Bloodangel" and "Lord of Bones," and the YA supernatural thriller "Uninvited." Her writing coach is Rachel Resnick.
