Nikki Finke Seeks $3.5 Million in Deadline Divorce
The divorce between entertainment reporter Nikki Finke and the powerful site she founded may be official, but now comes the hard part.
The two are locked in a growing legal fight over whether Finke is entitled to a $3.5 million payout after her departure from Deadline Hollywood, the showbiz blog she founded in 2006 and later sold to Penske Media.
The bad blood between the two parties has been public for some time, and it appears it won't let up anytime soon.
During mediation, both parties alleged breach of contract, prompting the mediator to call for a 20-day cooling-off period.
