I didn’t even know Randy ‘in it to win it’ Jackson was married. But apparently he has been for 18 years to Erika , but obviously things have soured since they’re divorcing. And since they have no prenup, 40 million dollars is at stake…and California is a no fault 50/50 state. Whoops.
The American Idol judge earned around $5 million a year towards the end of his 12 year tenure on the successful Fox show.
And in addition, he has amassed $40 million thanks to his collaborations with musical greats including Madonna, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, the website reported on Sunday.
Despite the split, the former couple are still happily living together with no allegations of infidelity.
Former ballet dancer Erika is seeking full physical custody and joint legal custody of the pair’s 17-year-old son Jordan. The couple also have a 19-year-old daughter, Zoe.
She is also asking for spousal support and for Jackson to pay her attorney’s fees. She also wishes to return to her maiden name of Riker.
The break-up comes several weeks after Jackson sold his estate in Tarzana, California, for $1.9million.
Well, at least they’re not fighting over the cash. Yet.
