This divorce settlement just keeps getting more interesting. Yesterday we reported that a New York man who donated one of his kidneys to his wife is now asking for her to return it in their divorce settlement. If she, you know, wants to stay alive, she can just give him the value of his kidney, $1.5 million. The woman had the kidney transplant at the University of Minnesota Medical Center.
Well, apparently it's OK to ask for your body parts back when your partner screws you over.
He claimed he has been prevented from seeing their children, ages, 8, 11 and 14, for months at a time.
"This is my last resort; I did not want to do this publicly," Batista said.
He said he gave his kidney to Dawnell Batista, now 44, in June 2001. She filed for divorce in July 2005, although he claims she began having an extramarital affair 18 months to two years after receiving the kidney transplant, his attorney, Dominick Barbara said.Ah yes, public revenge. We always try to find clever ways to kill our ex-spouses without actually killing them with our own hands.
Oh, and he says she won't let him see his three kids. If he can't see the kids, what better way to get custody back than to kill their mother?
We don't think it's OK to cheat on your spouse or hide your children, but seriously? Ask for a live-saving organ back? A gift is a gift, particularly when you are saving someone's life. And people who receive organs don't sign an agreement to be angels for the rest of their lives or face having to return it.
What else can we ask to have returned during divorce settlements? The possibilities are endless.
