OBAMA DIVORCE EXPLODES!
She wants alimony, child support AND their mansion on Martha’s Vineyard
MICHELLE OBAMA stormed out on a stunned Barack after the former president refused her demands for alimony, child support and the couple’s new Martha’s Vineyard mansion in a blistering
$150 million divorce showdown, sources tell GLOBE!
The furious former first lady unloaded on her shocked 58-yearold hubby, telling him she wants everything due her after sacrificing her work as a Harvard-grad lawyer to raise their kids and build his political career, insiders say!
Now fed-up Michelle, 55, has hired a top-gun divorce lawyer for a bloody, bare-knuckle courtroom fight — and has her eyes set on the $15 million beachfront estate they’re buying in Massachusetts, a source says.
“She’s talking of leaving the marriage and starting up her own talk show,” spills a snitch.
“If he’s not with her, then she’ll do it alone. If she splits, she wants a large portion of their $150 million fortune. She gave up her legal career to raise their children and feed his political ambition, and now she wants her share.
“She wants a generous alimony and child support, their production company, plus the new Martha’s Vineyard home.”
The final straw in the marred marriage came when brooding Barack became jealous of Michelle’s blockbuster memoir, Becoming, as he struggles to complete his own tell-all book.
The former commander in chief was supposed to deliver the manuscript by 2020, but it was pushed back to 2021 — a clear sign he’s having a tough time putting thoughts on paper.
“According to several people who have spoken with him, he’s feeling competitive with his wife,” whose book sold more than 10 million copies and may become the bestselling memoir in history.
Renowned psychologist Dr. Judy Kuriansky, author of The Complete Idiots Guide to a Healthy Relation
ship, warns that “competition between spouses is never healthy. The healthiest marriages are built when someone fully, whole-heartedly and genuinely supports what the other spouse is doing — as long as they do not betray them.”
The Obama marriage was on dangerously shaky ground even during his presidency — and has gone downhill ever since he left the White House in 2017, insiders insist!
As GLOBE reported in our Aug. 12 issue, the former first couple were ferociously feuding while living separate lives.
Michelle blasted him for flying around the world for bigbucks speaking gigs while ignoring the family, especially daughters Malia, 21, and Sasha, 18, who were raising eyebrows with their wild antics.
In 2016, Harvard coed Malia was photographed at a Chicago rock festival smoking what appeared to be pot and months later was “dancing scandalously and twerking” at a raunchy D.C. club.
She was also dragged into the recent college admission bribery scandal after her former tennis coach was accused of allegedly helping rich parents buy their kids into top schools.
Meanwhile, University of Michigan coed Sasha has struck up a close friendship with bad-girl rapper Cardi B and her notorious hubby,
Offset, who’s been busted for a battery of alleged crimes — including gun charges.
For months now, the Obamas have lived in different worlds. Cur- rently, Barack jets around the globe from his base in Washington, D.C., where he’s rumored to have a love nest in a swanky hotel!
“Time and again, Michelle has accused her husband of
eye,’ ” notes a snitch. “They’ve been at each other’s throats since Barack left office. He wants to ease into retirement and just make a few appearances.
“She loves rubbing elbows with celebrities and wants to be a serious Hollywood power player.
“She’s cracking the whip, and he’s fed up spending hours in his study just to get away from her.
“It’s become clear to a lot of people that they’ve been on diverging paths.”
