Richie Gives His Wife A Dream Settlement

LIONEL RICHIE is so desperate to remain friends with his ex-wife, he has given her the $5 million (GBP2.8 million) mansion they shared and $100,000 (GBP55,500) a month.

The divorce looked like it would get messy when DIANE RICHIE demanded monthly payments for cosmetic procedures and jewellery when she first filed last year (03), but the pair have since arrived at an amicable settlement.

Although the details of the divorce were initially confidential, American tabloid NATIONAL ENQUIRER claims the HELLO singer is paying up so he and his ex, who have two children together, can stay friends.

Richie has accepted his workaholic nature doomed the eight-year marriage.
