In addition to the cash and housing, Eliot agreed to pay for a host of Silda’s living expenses, including health care and medical insurance, an accountant, housekeeper and part-time assistant.She also gets a new car “no more than every five years,” unspecified “entertainment” costs and up to 0,000 a year to donate to charity.The divorced couple agreed to continue sharing ownership of their million upstate farm. so that each party has an equal number of weeks and weekends in any year.” Either one can also trigger a sale to the other, with Eliot agreeing to pay at least .5 million, or half the market value, plus another 0,000 after taxes, if he exercises the option.In a clear nod to Eliot’s philandering, both sides had agreed, pre-divorce, not to use the farm “in any way, including choice of visitors, that would cause any of their children emotional distress, unhappiness, embarrassment, hurt or harm in any way.” They also pledged, post-divorce, to work out a “mutually agreeable schedule . They also put in place a confidentiality agreement that stipulates that neither they nor reps may publish anything “concerning intimate details of their marriage” or “any other intimate details of the other’s life, or the other’s business, professional or financial affairs” without written consent.
Silda and Eliot finally called it quits as a couple in a public statement last year after The Post published photos of him shacking up with Smith at her Soho apartment.
Eliot Spitzer’s hooker-loving ways have cost him big — with ex-wife Silda scoring a .5 million cash payout and a steady stream of payments to maintain her luxurious lifestyle as part of their divorce, The Post has learned.
A “postnuptial” agreement promises 56-year-old Silda a lifetime of ease in exchange for the years of humiliation she endured married to the former governor, who resigned in disgrace after being revealed as “Client No. In addition to a .5 million settlement dubbed a “lump sum” but payable over seven years, Silda also gets 0,000 a year in maintenance for the rest of her life — with all the cash coming after Eliot pays the taxes.
They can be fined 5,000 to 5,000 for violating that agreement.
Smith had served as Eliot’s spokeswoman during his failed bid for city comptroller last year.She was later hired as communications director by Mayor Bill de Blasio during his mayoral campaign but didn’t make it with him to City Hall.
