Recipient of Huge Divorce Settlement, Dies at 91

Posted on September 5, 2009

Rockefeller MarriageBarbara Sears Rockefeller (born Jievute Paulekiute), died this week of natural causes in Arkansas. She received one of the largest divorce settlements of all time. 5.5 million dollars, which in 1954 was a huge chunk of cash–enough to live in a 6-story townhouse in Manhattan with a squash court. The marriage ended acrimoniously, after only six years, when Mrs. Rockefeller discovered Winthrop Rockefeller’s huge porn collection. She was the child of divorce. Her own parents divorced when she was a child. Is divorce a family condition, like alcoholism? If your parents choose that option, does it make it easier for you to choose that option? She never married again. It does, however, seem curious that she lived her last years in Arkansas, where her Ex had been governor. Coincidence? Maybe not. Just goes to show how the effects of Exes can last a lifetime.
