Rob will only be worth about half this much in the near future. As it appears in court records in Denton, Texas, Rob and Sarah have filed for divorce. Sarah will assume at least half his wealth, and probably more after considering child support. Sarah is soon to be a wealthy, and VERY VERY attractive single young lady!

I doubt it. He's the one that filed for divorce from her. Not the other way around. He didn't take that step knowing he had a bad case.
