According to gossip website TMZ.com, the gold digging ex-wife of former NY Mets baseball star Daryl Strawberry will be forced to get a job after she lost an epic court battle over some of his money.
Strawberry’s ex-wife, Charisse Strawberry, was promised $800,000 by Strawberry as part of their $5 million divorce settlement in 2005, according to court documents.
Apparently, Charisse burned through the $5 mil that she already collected in the settlement. So she went after the Mets for monies Darryl earned in the 80s.
The only problem is Daryl, 49, owes the IRS around $470K — so the Mets told Charisse their hands were tied. Charisse took the Mets to court whereupon the Mets explained to the judge that Daryl receives $8,891 a month as delayed compensation for his time with the ball club.
The judge ruled in favor of the Mets, saying the IRS always gets first dibs on any monies owed by a living, breathing taxpayer. And even though Daryl was diagnosed with metastatic cancer in the late 1990s, he’s still alive.
According to TMZ, “Charisse and the Mets finally agreed last month to let the IRS take its cut first — but since the Mets are only doling out $8,891 a month in Darryl’s name … it’ll be at least until 2016 before Charisse sees a penny.”
Now Charisse is forced to get a job to sustain her lifestyle until the Mets — and the IRS — sort out who gets a cut first.
