(Newser) – Madonna has settled her divorce with Guy Ritchie for at least $76 million, the singer's rep said today. "I'd assume it's one of the largest payouts ever in a divorce settlement," Liz Rosenberg told the AP. The settlement could total as much as $92 million, including the value of the couple's home in western England. Ritchie will also hang on to a pub the couple owns in London. She added while the financial component of the settlement had been worked out, custodial arrangements for the couple's children have yet to be finalized.
