Elen Rives: Cheque, Please!
Frank Lampard and Elen Rives. Let’s check in with how the monetary loose ends are being settled, shall we?
Although they spent seven poorly-dressed years together, t’would seem Elen has taken Frank to the Royal Dry Cleaners. Citing two reported infidelities, recent reports have Frank set to pay Elen 14 million euros as part of their non-divorce-they-were- never-gonna-make-it-down-the-altar- anyway settlement. What happens in Vegas never, ever seems to stays there.
Still: 14 million seems a little high and ridic, no?
Elen was said to be publicly humiliated by the tabs’ reports of Frank’s wandering eye but we think a) this photo b) this entire situation and c) and again, another photo might be the real root of the cause of Frank’s desire to end things. He has sorted out a £2.8 million flat for her and the kids though.
“Sources” say the couple grew increasingly distant and things were never right between them after Frank’s mum, Pat, died. Frank’s rep, however, denied foul play and reiterated no third party was involved in the split.
So, who’s the real winner in all of this?
Side note: We feel compelled to mention that this story has yet to be picked up by the British tabloids. Even more curious, is that it comes from a fairly reliable source that tends to err on the side of pro/friendly-celebrity stories… so interesting that this one made it through the net.
