Getting paid to break-up?

Remember when Hugh Grant used to date Elizabeth Hurley? After being caught in a not so angelic encounter with Ms. Divine Brown, in 1995, he finally split from from her but not before Hugh bought Warhol's Liz, for $3.7 million in 2001. It sold yesterday for $23.7 million, a $20 million payback on the same name.

Google's Larry Page, worth $20 billion, is getting married to his long term girlfriend, Lucy Southworth on December 8th. Al Gore won't be attending because he'll be at the Nobel prize ceremony in Oslo. So the only question to ask is, "How much will she get for sharing the same name?"
