Did he put the house in her name? 7 hours ago, geauxaway said: I think *think* it was smaller and older. She mentioned it being a tear down. The land, location and view were exceptional. But the actual house was not to the standard Betty had become accustomed to. I also think it was a way for Dan to screw her over financially. By buying that house for "them", he "gave" it to her in the divorce. But since it was in his name, it was still legally his, after the divorce would be final. He knew there was no way she could afford it, even with the $16,000/month she was granted. Plus, any money she'd be paying towards the mortgage, would be going to Dan. So after the divorce, she had to move out, and he got to sell it and keep its profits. That's my limited understanding. I'm reading the Stumbo book now (thanks to those who recommended it! Love it!), and I'm sure I'll have a better understanding. 2 1 Link to comment
