Buzz Aldrin is back on the market for another “Moon Gal.”



The famed astronaut and wife number three, whose license plate bears the celestial moniker, officially divorced on Dec. 28, TMZ.com reported.



The out-of-this world settlement leaves Aldrin’s ex, Lois Driggs Cannon, with nearly half of the 82-year-old spaceman’s fortune.


She’s set to pocket half of his $475,000 bank account and 50 percent of any profit he makes from his businesses.

On top of that, she’ll receive $9,500 a month in spousal support and 30 percent of Aldrin’s annual income, which tops about $600,000.


Cannon even gets to keep her 1988 Mercedes, which bears the ironic “Moon Gal” plates.



Aldrin, the second man to set foot on the moon, filed for divorce from Cannon in June 2011 after 23 years of marriage. The couple does not have any kids.

My personal opinion on this: He should have stayed with her. It would have been cheaper. That is one hell of a way to end your retirement cash.

Seeing that pic, all I can think of is the quote from Tommy Boy:

The way divorce courts almost royally ream the guy in this situation is sad, especially the way women seem to keep being given access to money these men earn in the future even though they did nothing to deserve it. If I ever get married I'm going to get a cast iron pre-nup.

If I'm not mistaken, Buzz initiated the divorce. Not her.

Lesson learned: never get married. Consider it done!

It doesn't look like she's going to have them time to enjoy it as she looks like she's about to croak.

She looks like something out of House of Wax.

He doesn't look better either, just less pointy.

why get a divorce? just wait a couple years and one will be gone anyways. isnt like the're going to remarry at that age.

im surprised he didnt have more money.

I initially was as well, but then I thought about it. I doubt he made much being an astronaut at NASA in 1969, and even if he did, that was a hell of a long time ago.
Have to figure the way he makes most of his money now is endorsements, etc., and being so old, I would imagine companies are not banging down his door.
Sucks. You would hope he would be set financially, but obviously not the case.
After typing it all out, I am now surprised he makes as much as he does.

California is a Community Property state where 50-50 splits are the rule absent a pre-nuptial agreement to the contrary.

82 years old and he gets $600,000 a year. I mean, giving talks alone could easily rack up some of that money... there's not a big pool of guys who landed on the moon.

Or it could be money from NASA to keep him quiet about never actually landing on the moon /s. :rofl: :alien:
