Ashley Darby, star of the Real Housewives of Potomac, recently announced that she and her husband, Michael, had separated.
A statement to The Daily Dish on Tuesday, April 19, confirmed the news that the Bravo star had shared with the publication.
“When Michael and I tied the knot about eight years ago, we imagined spending every single day together from that point forward. Unfortunately, it is not the case in our actual reality,” Ashely explained.
Here’s a look at how much money Michael Darby is worth.
Michael Darby Net Worth
Michael, an Australian businessman who is successful in the real estate industry, is estimated to be worth $20 million.
Monument Realty, based in Washington, DC, is owned and operated by him as the main and co-founder. To date, the company, which was created in 1998, is said to have built more than 6.5 million square feet of commercial and residential real estate.
Originally from Melbourne, the 30-year-old has degrees in Construction Engineering and Business Development and began his professional career as a general contractor.
Ashley Darby, on the other hand, has a net worth of roughly $5 million dollars. The former beauty queen has amassed the most of her money as a result of her reality television role on The Real Housewives of Orange County.
An examination of Ashley Darby’s prenuptial agreement
As soon as the news of Ashley and Michael’s separation became public, an old RHOP footage of the couple discussing their prenuptial agreement began to circulate.
Ashley is commended by Michael for agreeing to prolong the prenuptial agreement and for doing it without the involvement of legal counsel. Ashley then explains to the camera that their initial prenup stipulated that she would receive a “lumpsum amount” if the couple divorced within three years, but that if they split after three years, she would receive a larger amount.
She then explains that, if the couple decides to divorce after three years, she will receive half of Michael’s total wealth as compensation.
“The last thing I want is for Michael to get the impression that I’m only with him for his money,” the reality star confessed to the camera. “I’m not with him for his money,” she added.
The couple subsequently altered their prenuptial agreement to make it valid for five years instead of three, in order to make Michael feel more comfortable with the arrangement moving ahead.
Who are the Couple’s Children?
Ashely and Michael are the parents of two kids, Dean Michael Darby and Dylan Matthew Darby, who were born to them.
Dean is three years old, and Dylan will be one in March of 2022, respectively.
