A divorce is always strenuous and a pain to go through with. Not only is there the stress of dealing with your old significant other, but there is always a large sum of money exchanged, sometimes in favor of one person more than the other. Seattle Seahawks defensive end Chris Clemons recently got a divorce with his wife, Veranetta, and it will cost him some serious cash ... and a nice car!
We have all the juicy details after the page jump.
Courtesy of a report from the always-reliable TMZ:
Seattle Seahawks sack-machine Chris Clemons is now officially divorced from his wife -- but TMZ has learned, it'll cost him $500,000 ... AND a Land Rover.
Clemons' wife Veranetta filed for divorce in 2010 on grounds of adultery -- claiming Chris admitted to having casual sex with several women in 2009 ... and would often disappear to Atlantic City at all hours of the night, returning home the next afternoon.
Veranetta also claims Chris -- who led the Seahawks in sacks in 2010 and 2011 -- was "physically, emotionally, and financially abusive" toward her during their relationship.
Clemons shot back, denying the allegations -- but insisting he wanted a divorce too.
As part of the divorce, Veranetta demanded exclusive use of the couple's Georgia mansion -- as well as one of their cars ... the Land Rover or the Bentley. On top of that, Veranetta wanted $10,000 a month in alimony for 5 years.
Neither side could agree on a settlement -- so it went before a jury ... which finalized the divorce last month, ordering Chris to cough up $500,000 and the Land Rover.
Well, good times for his wife, anyway. Fortunately for Chris and the rest of his family, he should earn plenty of money in the coming years and should be able to keep his money grubbing wife away from it.
