Redstone May Split With Second Wife
Sumner Redstone's turbulent family relations have taken a new turn with word that he may soon end his marriage to Paula Fortunato, who had reportedly become closely involved in the decision-making process at Redstone's Viacom business. Last year Redstone disclosed that he had ended his company's business relationship with Tom Cruise at the behest of his wife. "The truth of the matter is I did listen to her," he told Vanity Fair. "His behavior was entirely unacceptable to Paula and to the rest of the world." Meanwhile, it was being reported that Redstone is attempting to mend his relations with daughter Shari by buying out her 20 percent stake in National Amusements, a holding company for Viacom and CBS, in exchange for granting her operating control of National Amusements' theater chain.
